They’re Here ... or they will be soon.

Universal Orlando says it will bring guests "into the light" as part of this year's Halloween Horror Nights, courtesy of new mazes inspired by MGM's iconic supernatural horror film, Poltergeist.

Poltergeist garnered critical and consumer success when it first premiered in 1982, and many critics say it paved the way for a new era of supernatural ghost stories.

Universal Orlando, with its tip of the hat to these films of the 1980s, is bringing this movie and other media offerings to life with its offering of haunted mazes.

In this case, guests will be drawn into some of the most iconic scenes of Poltergeist.

The mazes will lure guests to the Freeling family house built atop a cemetery complete with its cadre of malicious ghosts.

From the underground graveyard to ghostly apparitions, guests will come face to face with infamous scenes from the film including the iconic flickering TV screen and the menacing Beast from beyond.

As guests cross into the ‘light,’ they will find themselves surrounded by a surreal landscape of vanishing walls and floating furniture.

The thrills start September 14, and Universal promises that it is not done revealing everything there is to reveal about this season's offerings.
