Imagine walking through Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, and seeing a person in a red jumpsuit heading your way. They hold onto a pair of golden scissors with a calm intensity. Or, perhaps you come across a string of people in the same red jumpsuit, all holding hands, blocking your way.. No more imagining for this may become a reality as Universal has announced that Jordan Peele’s Us will join the roster of haunted attractions at this year’s annual event!
From Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights official site:
Are you ready to enter the shocking reality of Academy Award-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele and Universal Pictures’ global horror hit Us?
In this new haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights, you will walk through the Wilson family beach house and Santa Cruz Pier, where you might spot a familiar character outside of the Fun House. You’ll also venture through the unnerving tunnels that stretch for miles deep below America and come face-to-face with “The Tethered” – a group of terrifying doppelgängers of every living man, woman and child in the country. You’ll quickly discover that you are your own worst enemy.
Follow in the footsteps of Adelaide Wilson as she experiences a horrifying and traumatic encounter with her tethered double, Red. Watch her face off with her menacing mirror image in a deadly dance with a fatal ending.
As you venture deeper through the haunted house, you will be transported to modern-day, and witness “The Tethered” rise-up from their underground labyrinth, ready to take on their privileged upperworld counterparts – determined to enact their plan of murder and revenge.
Prepare to run for your life, as there is no escaping yourself.
This will certainly be a fantastic terror! One aspect of the film that sticks out and I hope makes it in the attraction is the Vision Quest fun house found on the Santa Monica Blvd in the film. Mirror mazes are always a good tension raiser.
Us joins other haunted attractions and scare zones based on Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Ghostbusters, the Universal Classic Monsters, Stranger Things, as well as a few original haunts including one based on the Yeti. Get scared – on selected nights – from September 6th through November 2nd at both Universal Orlando and Universal Hollywood.
Will you be making it to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights? How freaking creepy would it be to see one of the Tethered that actually looks like you? Oof. Share your excitement for the annual horrorfest over on our Twitter, subreddit, Instagram, or on The Horror Movie Fiend Club on Facebook!
