The Halloween Horror Nights event in Hollywood is a Halloween event presented at Universal Studios Hollywood. It is one of the largest Halloween events in the United States. The event has been presented sparingly since 1992 and as an annual event, recently. It is an offshoot of Halloween Horror Nights Orlando which has been presented annually since 1991.

HistoryEdit

Although a Halloween event was held at the park in 1986, Halloween Horror Nights didn't appear there until 1992. Including that year, it has been presented eight times. Although the event has not created original icons like those in Orlando, two of the Event Icons, The Director and Jack the Clown, were used in 2006 and 2007. Additionally, the New Line Cinema trio of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Leatherface, were featured in 2007, and 2008. They reappeared in 2010, but Leatherface was replaced by Jigsaw from Saw.

Halloween Horror Nights 1986 TragedyEdit

Main article: Halloween Horror Nights 1986

Universal Studios decided to hold a Halloween event in 1986 in order to make up for the slow autumn season. Taking a cue from Knotts Berry Farm, which had been successfully adopting a haunted Halloween event for over 14 years, Universal started Halloween Horror Nights, with it's logo being a Jack-O-Lantern being sawed in half with a chainsaw. The signature attraction would be The Terror Tram, which would be a nightime version of the Backlot Tour, only with scareactors hiding in the shadows ready to jump out and attack guests. Unfortunatly, during one night a Scareactor got a little over-enthusiastic in his performance, fell between two of the tram cars, and was crushed to death. Universal would not have a Halloween event for over six years afterward, and discontinued the scaraector "attacks" on moving trams entirely. The tragedy is likely the reason that when the event was first started in Florida, it was done under the title of "Fright Nights ", and didn't feature the bloody pumpkin image that first year, however the chainsaw pumpkin image from Hollywood would be used for Florida's event in 1992 & 1993.

Terror Tram Edit

  • Terror Tram: The Director's Cut - For the first time step foot onto the famous backlot. But beware: the Director will be lurking nearby to cast for fresh talent. Reminiscent of a haunted hayride, guests would board the GlamorTrams, which would take them onto the Backlot. During the ride, the tour guide would bring guests up to speed on the Director's backstory via special mockumentary shown on the LCD monitors overhead. The tram would then come to a halt just short of the first scarezones and the guests would be ordered to get out and fend for themselves. A return Tram would pick up guests near the end of the War of the Worlds set to return them to the Front Lot, but not before one last surprise from the Director, who was ready to make his final "cut". This would be the return of the Terror Tram after a 14-year hiatus, and unlike the unexpectedly bloody events of the very first Halloween Horror Nights, no scareactors would be anywhere near a moving tram.

Your journey begins at MURDER HOUSE, a century old residence on the outskirts of Los Angeles with a tragic past. The unfortunate souls who perished inside are forever trapped within its walls and each room harbors its own horrible secret. Your next stop is the creepy backwater town of Jupiter, Florida where a struggling FREAK SHOW has taken up residence. The human oddities on display inside the big top are nothing compared to the murderous men and women who fight to control this psychotic circus. Finally, you will check in to the HOTEL Cortez, a ruinous relic of a bygone era that conceals a torture chamber of murder and madness! Inside the hotel’s haunted hallways lies a host of supernatural characters bent on making you a guest for all eternity. (FDTD Area)

A battle between the forces of light and all the powers of Hell! At stake is not only the soul of one troubled girl, but the soul of anyone who sets foot inside the house. Something beyond comprehension is happening to a twelve year old girl named Regan MacNeil. Some dreadful entity has invaded her body, transforming the innocent young girl into a horrid creature that is unrecognizable to her own mother.
