Universal Studios Hollywood is adding two new live entertainment shows to its Halloween Horror Nights lineup, which kicks off on Sept. 7.
In partnership with horror production company Blumhouse, known for films like “M3GAN,” “The Black Phone” and “The First Purge,” live shows based on the studio’s horror films will be coming to the theme park this Halloween season.
One of the new shows, “The Purge: Dangerous Waters,” will be based on the Purge horror films and follow the story of a politician and his entourage who escape to an island to avoid the purge only to find out that their “safe haven” has purgers on it, a news release said.
The show will take place at the WaterWorld venue inside the theme park and feature stunts, spectacular lighting, laser effects and more.
On the other hand, “Blumhouse: Behind the Screams” will take horror fans behind the scenes of horror movie selection at the production company.
The show will break the fourth wall and feature horror films like “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” “The Exorcist: Believer,” “The Black Phone” and others.
Parkgoers brave enough to attend the event will also encounter other scary monsters at haunted houses and scare zones across the theme park.
