Halloween Horror Nights Brings the Hauntings of ‘Poltergeist’ to Life


“They’re heeeeeere!”

Poltergeist is coming to Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights this fall. Read more from the Universal Blog below…

The restless spirits of a realm beyond are overrunning Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. Prepare to cross over as Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures’ (MGM) 1982 supernatural horror film Poltergeist becomes reality in a new haunted house.

I remember watching this film on a VHS tape with a couple of neighborhood friends. We all tried to pretend we were not scared but could not sleep a wink that night. It became, and still is, one of my favorite films.

The face peeling moment really stuck with me, and when I tried to shut out that image, others would pop in to replace it.  The maggot steak, the giant mantis-like creature, the giant skull in the closet, and the CLOWN…that freaky clown!  I couldn’t look under my bed for months.

This movie means a lot to me and the Universal team. We’re taking this iconic horror film we all grew up watching and bringing it to life for everyone to experience. We will be taking you, the guest, through all the fan favorite moments, and then guiding you into the place we always wanted to go…that bright and terrifying light. As Tangina would say, “Come into the light. All are welcome.”

Kick those survival skills into gear as the haunts of 1980’s horror films consume Halloween Horror Nights 2018. MGM’s Poltergeist joins Netflix’s sci-fi thriller Stranger Things and Legendary Pictures’ Trick ‘r Treat in this year’s haunted house line-up.
