The people in charge of the thrills and frights at Universal Orlando say an old favorite is coming back.
They say that, beginning on Friday, September 14, "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers," from Trancas International Films, takes a stab at Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights.
Universal execs say the notorious slasher returns to Universal Orlando Resort in all-new mazes inspired by the iconic horror film.
Based on the fourth installment in the classic slasher series created by John Carpenter, the mazes will transport guests to the suburban town of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night where Myers has escaped Smith's Grove Sanitarium.
Guests will follow Myers as he escapes the mental hospital, encounters his first victims at Penney's Gas Station and Diner, and wreaks terror in general on Haddonfield, all set to Alan Howarth's ominous score.
The maze will include scares by Myers in his classic featureless white mask and navy jumpsuit.
Universal promises that Halloween fanatics can expect a cameo by Myer’s psychiatrist Dr. Loomis, along with other famous characters from the film.
There are more details coming about Universal's Halloween Horror Nights, and Universal is sticking to its well-established practice of not telling everybody everything at once.
