John Carpenter’s Halloween heads to Universal Orlando

John Carpenter's Halloween

Horror fans rejoice: John Carpenter’s Halloween is heading to Universal Orlando as part of the parks’ Halloween Horror Nights season.

The classic 1978 slasher film will be recreated from September 19 in an all-new haunted house that will follow the story of the movie’s anti-hero Michael Myers.

In the haunted house. Myers will embark on a murderous rampage, stopping at nothing as he stalks his victims. Every scene will tell the tale of a different kill and if you’re not careful, you could be next!

Halloween is one of the most successful horror franchises of all time and has grossed a collected $366 million worldwide. Since the original Halloween film, nine additional Halloween sequels have been created.

“My experience watching this film growing up is as vivid now as it was years ago. The team and I are beyond thrilled to bring one of the most iconic horror films and characters to life at Halloween Horror Nights.” says Michael Aiello of Universal Orlando. “Halloween, began what would become the slasher film genre and still represents the genre as its horrific crown jewel. Guests will come face to face with Michael Myers as we recreate the kills committed on the night He came home.”
