Universal Studios Hollywood
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood is undoubtedly one of the most popular, if not the most popular, places among horror fans to visit during this Halloween season. All of the excitement and enthusiasm around Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights is due to the feature of Netflix's Haunting of the Hill House produced by Paramount Television and Amblin TV.
Netflix's Haunting of the Hill House is one of the most popular horror shows in the world at present. In Halloween Horror Nights, it is included in a maze where different ghosts from the show will scare the guests. Iconic scenes from Haunting of the Hill House, such as the omnipotent Red Room the heart of Hill House, and the famed Hall of Statues, where false powers overpower everyone who enters, will be included throughout the maze.
Other features from the show would include the Tall Man, whose towering stature overwhelms everyone he meets; The Ghost in the Basement, who feverishly creeps throughout the House in quest of his next victim and the Bent-Neck Lady, whose frightening scream and horrific visage induce a continual state of eerie fear.
