Universal's Halloween Horror Nights: 10 Things You Need To Know

It's never too soon to start panicking.

If there is one thing that Universal Studios knows it's horror. They've been making monster movies since as far back as the 1920s and they are pretty much responsible for much of the early iconography of the genre. They are the home of pop culture icons Frankenstein, Dracula, the Mummy, the Wolf Man among others and when it comes to making scary movies, Universal are experts in fear. Back in 1991, Universal Studios Orlando built on that reputation by holding a three day event called Fright Nights, which has since grown into probably the most famous Halloween extravaganza in the world. Each year, the now rechristened Halloween Horror Night allows guests to experience true fear as they journey into some of the scariest horror movies. Over the past 25 events, guests have been terrorised by the likes of Jason and Freddy Kruger and taken terrified steps into the worlds of classics like American Werewolf in London and new horror favourites like Insidious. Most recently, The Walking Dead has become a modern classic of Halloween Horror Nights and has become so popular that Universal recently announced that they will be opening a permanent Walking Dead attraction at its Hollywood park. That can only be good news. This year marks the 26th Anniversary of Halloween Horror Nights, and it promises to be bigger and badder than ever before. So what can you expect if you want to have the fright of your life? Read on, if you dare...
