Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House” became a over night hit that elevated the horror television genre. Created, directed and executive-produced by horror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Gerald’s Game) and executive produced by Trevor Macy via their Intrepid Pictures, the chilling horror story follows members of the Crain family who are haunted by long-dormant fears stemming from their time living in the menacing Hill House as children and then forced to face the ghosts of its grisly past.
Iconic scenes from the Netflix series will be featured throughout the maze, including the omni-powerful Red Room – the heart of Hill House – and the infamous Hall of Statues, where deceptive powers overtake everyone who enters. Apparitions will appear around every corner, from William Hill – The Tall Man, whose towering stature overwhelms everyone he encounters; to The Ghost in the Basement, who feverishly crawls throughout the bowels of the House in search of his next victim; to The Bent-Neck Lady, whose disturbing scream and ghastly appearance invoke a constant state of unnerving dread.
Universal spoke series creator, Mike Flanagan about his experiences with Halloween Horror Nights and it's welcomed addition of the Haunting of Hill House. “I have loved Halloween Horror Nights for so long,” said Flanagan, Creator, Director and Executive Producer of “The Haunting of Hill House.” “Some of my favorite memories of Halloween were made at Universal Studios, screaming and laughing with my friends. It is such an honor to be included among such fantastic Haunts, and I’m so glad that fans will be able to walk the halls of Hill House this Halloween. This is – without a doubt – one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to us at Intrepid. We are so excited to visit the Red Room again – we hope to see you all there!”
“It’s a nightmare come true to bring Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House” to life for our guests this year at ‘Halloween Horror Nights,’” said Charles Gray, Senior Show Director for Entertainment Creative Development at Universal Orlando Resort. “The show brought true horror to the masses, similar to what we’ve provided our guests at this event for nearly 30 years – Hill House is a perfect fit for “Halloween Horror Nights” as it enters a new decade of fear.”
More About The House
The show has dozens and dozens of ghosts in it from the most recognizable ones like the Tall Man and Bent-Neck Lady to even mere glimpses of entities they hid in the background of scenes. You can expect the same from the HHN haunted house. It will be packed with both evil and trapped spirits all with the sole purpose of scaring the living daylights out of you. I can’t wait.
This won’t be your typical HHN haunted house where it’s intense scares from the get go. It will start with more of those sinister, creepy vibes that make the little hairs on the back of your neck stand up. It will simmer and build tension with subliminal scares and then boom! The action hits you. Just wait until you experience the finale scene.
In every haunted house, the Entertainment teams adds in intricate details and props that only true fans would recognize. You may catch a glimpse of hidden gems like the Hill House blueprints and there may even be some hidden ghosts just like in the show.
