Next Up for Halloween Horror Nights: ‘Evil Dead’

Halloween Horror Nights, second installment

“Evil Dead,” based on the film that was released in April and directed by Fede Alvarez, is the newest addition to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando (and at Universal Studios Hollywood).

Like many films of its genre, the plot revolves around a group of always-attractive 20-somethings who get caught up in a book about death, demons, and a cabin in the woods (with a nod to the first House announced in June).

According to Universal’s press release:

In haunted mazes so terrifying, they could only be found at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, guests will be transported into the film and face off against a demonic evil that will stop at nothing to consume them. It begins when a mysterious passage from an ancient book is read, releasing an unearthly force of darkness. A pack of violently possessed victims, including the film’s starring character “Mia,” wreaks brutal carnage throughout the mazes – and guests must make their best attempt to escape.

The event runs from Sept. 20 to Nov. 2.

Here’s the promotional clip.

Admission to HHN is in addition to regular park admission. A one-night single ticket is priced at $91.99, but the price drops to $42.99 as a special promo offer for Florida residents. The Frequent Fear Pass costs $83.99 and covers admission for 15 select nights. And, there’s the Halloween Horror Nights Express Pass for front-of-the-line access, which ranges from $49.99 to $99.99.

It all begs the question: Is there a “Good Dead”?
