Halloween Horror Nights: Reflections of Fear was the 18th annual Halloween Horror Nights event at the Universal Orlando Resort. Held for 23 nights from September 26 to November 1, 2008, it included eight haunted mazes and six scarezones, and was the largest Halloween Horror Nights up to that point. Universal's creative team introduced the event and its icon Bloody Mary on the Halloween Horror Nights website in July, and expanded its backstory up to and during the run of the event. With Bloody Mary as icon, fears, fairy tales, and urban legends formed the overall arching theme of the event. With a press release on August 28, Universal revealed the names and descriptions of the mazes. Visible construction could be seen starting in August, and major scarezone construction began in early September. Although there was no elaborate opening show featuring Bloody Mary (unless you attended the media event), she made a number of appearances throughout the event.

The Event

The story started with an individual known as Mary Agana. Opening a facility which she would perform experiments in fear, this would later spiral into a series of events in which she became a ruler of evil legends, Bloody Mary.

The theme of the event itself is that guests would step into "The Mirror" and enter a world that partaked to the twisted yet artistic visions of the disturbing and violent Bloody Mary. With the exceptions of the shows, Everything in the event was either tied into the Legend of Bloody Mary, or took place in a realm of the Mirror (Fears, Tales, Urban Legends, Nightmares, and Myths).
