ORLANDO, Fla. (September 14, 2018) – The world's premier Halloween event, Halloween Horror Nights, is now open at Universal Orlando Resort – with more haunted houses and scares than ever before.
With a total of 36 record-breaking nights through November 3, Halloween Horror Nights 2018 will be the most intense event in history. Cinematic greats, slasher films, cult classics and original nightmares inspired by the past will come to life as guests face 10 disturbingly-real haunted houses, five scare zones and one powerhouse live show.

- Be transported to the suburban town of Haddonfield, Illinois where the infamous slasher Michael Myers is hungry for revenge in "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers"

And it doesn't stop there. Menacing scareactors in five highly-themed scare zones will invade the streets of Universal Studios Florida, two of which are based on classic '80s horror icons – MGM's"Killer Klowns from Outer Space" and "Revenge of Chucky" – as well as three original concepts – "Vamp 85: New Year's Eve," "The Harvest" and "Twisted Tradition."
