In The Purge, guests will attempt to survive the night as they are immersed in the film’s depraved world. Here all crime is declared legal as part of the government’s annually sanctioned 12-hour Purge. Secondly, in what can be described as a living trailer for Happy Death Day, guests will experience a deja-vu scenario. Forced to relive the last day of their lives over and over again, guests attempt to escape a masked killer. The final nightmare will unmask itself in Sinister. Guests encounter an ancient pagan deity who is determined to trap them in the sordid shadow world of the dead…for all eternity.
It’s a privilege to collaborate with Jason Blum and his team at Blumhouse Productions to create ‘The Horrors of Blumhouse,’” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of “Halloween Horror Nights.” “The decisive, inventive way in which he interprets underlying issues plaguing today’s society into his films provides us with a plethora of content to create truly captivating, one-of-a-kind modern horror experiences for our guests.

Guests will attempt to survive three of the most menacing anthologies in the Blumhouse assemblage. First, guests will face the horror of becoming stars in the next home murder movie of the menacing demon Bughuul, from the infamous Sinister franchise. Then, they’ll run for their lives to escape the gang of bloodthirsty home invaders from the first installment of The Purge saga. Finally, unlike Hollywood, guests will be thrust into the Further from the Insidious legend. They’ll come face-to-face with the paralyzing Lipstick-Face Demon from Chapter 1. In a first-look at Insidious: Chapter 4, guest witness Dr. Elise Rainier’s own personal hauntings from her nightmarish childhood. Insidious: Chapter 4 is set to hit theaters January 5, 2018.
