Universal Studios Hollywood has announced details of the Halloween Horror Nights events taking place at the park during October.
This year's version of the annual event will see four horror-themed mazes, several "scare zones", live shows and a special "Terror Tram" version of the Studios' famous backlot tour.The Halloween Horror Nights will take place on October 2-3, 9-11, 15-18, 23-25 and 28-31.
The headline "maze" is based on the hugely successful SAW franchise which has now reached its fifth sequel. The movies see a range of victims of demented genius "Jigsaw" forced to find their way out life-threatening traps - a plot which should lend itself well to the maze attraction.
Another attraction, "Halloween: The Life and Crimes of Michael Myers", is based on the hit 1978 slasher movie and designed to coincide with the release of the sequel to the 2007 re-make. The first ever theme park attraction based on the Halloween franchise, it features a walk-through replica of serial killer Michael Myer's house.
Also inspired by a re-make, in this case the 2009 3D update of My Bloody Valentine, "My Bloody Valentine: Be Mine 4 Ever" is a maze that recreates the mineshaft in which many of the film's brutal murders take place.
Live shows will include the returning "The Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute", while the "Terror Tram" version of the backlot tour will see temporary additions such as scenes from the SAW movies.
Tickets can be bought in advance for a discount via Universal's Halloween Horror Nights website.
