Universal Orlando Reveals Third New Halloween Horror Nights 23 House to Be Havoc 2: Derailed @UORHHN

Every night this week, at midnight, Universal Orlando is releasing teaser reveals of more houses for Halloween Horror Nights 23, on their Facebook page. The third one to be revealed is Havoc 2: Derailed.

Halloween Horror Nights 23 Havoc 2: DerailedIf you were at Halloween Horror Nights 20, you may remember the house Havoc: Dogs of War. It’s plotline was based on super soldiers created for war that went crazy and turned on their creators.

This house is a sequel to that popular house, and the plotline of this all-new original house is that six weeks after the incidents of the first house, a military train convoy containing the captured Dogs of War has derailed, and the bunch of bloodthirsty maniacs are on the loose again.

Havoc 2: Derailed joins previously announced originals Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance and Urban Legends: La Llorona, along with houses based on the movies Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead, and the TV show The Walking Dead.

Universal Orlando Reveals Another Halloween Horror Nights 23 House to Be Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance @UORHHN

Universal Orlando continues its midnight Halloween Horror Nights 23 teases by revealing another house/maze will be called Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance.

Halloween Horror Nights 23, Afterlife: Death’s VengeanceThe text that accompanied the reveal states: “Witness the brutal vengeance of his victims as they turn his afterlife into an inescapable hell… This fall, 2000 volts of electricity are going to send serial killer, Bobby “The Blade” Galleta into a horrific realm of suffering at HHN23 in this new, original haunted house, Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance.”

I’m wondering if it’s going to be similar to the movie Shocker, in which a serial killer uses the electricity he received from being killed in the electric chair to exact vengence on those who put him there.

Afterlife: Death’s Vengeance joins previously teased Urban Legends: La Llorona, along with houses based on the movies Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead, and the TV show The Walking Dead.

Universal Orlando Reveals Next Halloween Horror Nights 23 House to Be Based On La Llorona Legend @UORHHN

Every night this week, at midnight, Universal Orlando is releasing teaser reveals of more houses for Halloween Horror Nights 23, on their Facebook page. The first one appears to be based on the legend of La Llorona.

Halloween Horror Nights 23, urban legends, La LloronaThe text that accompanies the artwork states: “Feel her pain and suffering as you succumb to her legend of tragedy… Enter the watery realm of La Llorona in this all-new haunted house, Urban Legends: La Llorona, at HHN23.”

There are several variations on the legend, but the basic story tells of a woman named Maria who drowns her children to be with the man she loves. She is devastated when he doesn’t want her and drowns herself.

At the gates of Heaven, she is refused entry because the souls of her children are not there. She is forced to wander the Earth until she finds them. Her constant weeping earned her the name “La Llorona.”

It will be interesting to see how Universal Orlando translates this urban legend into a haunted house/maze.

Urban Legends: La Llorona joins previously announced houses based on the movies Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead, and the TV show The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead Returns to Universal Orlando Halloween Horror Nights 23 With More Scares @UORHHN @WalkingDead_AMC

The Walking Dead, Halloween Horror Nights 23One of the most popular haunted houses of last year’s Halloween Horror Nights was based on the hit TV series, The Walking Dead.

This week, Universal Orlando announced they were bringing back The Walking Dead to Halloween Horror Nights 23, and zombie fans will get more than they bargained for this year.

The maze/house will be themed after season 3’s prison, the West Georgia Correctional Facility, which is now overrun by hordes of flesh-eating walkers, as well as the town of Woodbury, and the wilderness in between.

But that’s not all.

The theme park will also dedicate it’s entire HHN23 street experience to the show, making this the first time ever that all of the scare zones throughout the park will be themed after a hit television series.

That’s right, just walking the streets of Universal Studios Florida (where UO hosts HHN), guests will encounter iconic scenes from all three seasons of the hit show – including the perilous city of Atlanta and Hershel’s barn – and fleets of blood-thirsty walkers who are hungry for their next victim

Universal Orlando Announces Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods as Haunted Maze Theme for Halloween Horror Nights 23

Cabin in the Woods Halloween Horror Nights 23One of the best horror movies in a long time was Cabin In the Woods. This week, Universal Orlando has annouced the film would be the basis for one of the new haunted mazes for Halloween Horror Nights 23.

From the minds of Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, Cabin in the Woods paid homage to classic horror within the completely original story of a group of college friends who vacation at an isolated cabin, only to find they’re part of a much larger game.

For this maze, Universal’s Entertainment team is partnering with LIONSGATE (the film’s distributor) and film director/co-writer Goddard to deliver a movie-quality haunted house experience that’s authentic to the film and places guests in the middle of an ancient fight for survival.

“This is a twisted dream come true for me,” said Goddard. “The Universal team has done an amazing job making all the terrifying aspects of ‘Cabin’ come to life, and horror fans will not be disappointed. Also, they said they’d let me dress up like a merman and scare people, so I’ll see you guys there.”

I’m excited to see how they translate the unique aspects of the film into a haunted house format (Goddard better not be kidding about that Merman!).

Halloween Horror Nights 23 will frun from September 20 to November 2, 2013.
