Award-winning Executive Producer Greg Nicotero had a chance to get a first-hand look at the spectacular creativity that goes into Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights in an all-new video featuring a haunted house planned for next year’s (2021) Halloween Horror Nights event, Puppet Theater: Captive Audience.
A longtime fan of Halloween Horror Nights, Nicotero joined Mike Aiello, Universal Orlando’s Senior Director of Creative Development, and Charles Gray, Senior Show Director – a team he’s previously collaborated with on creating past Halloween Horror Nights experiences – on a behind-the-scenes tour where the trio discussed what it takes to bring the horrifying immersion of the world’s premier Halloween event to life, from special effects to the art of scaring and more.
Based on a terrifying original story created exclusively by the twisted minds of Universal Orlando’s Entertainment team, Puppet Theater: Captive Audience will bring the demented side of puppetry and theater into the spotlight…click here to watch, if you dare.
Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights is the ultimate Halloween event, bringing the most terrifying names in horror and pop culture to life in disturbingly-real experiences. Guests who visit Halloween Horror Nights at Universal’s parks worldwide become victims inside their own horror film, where multiple movie-quality haunted houses based on iconic horror movies, television shows, and original stories come to life. With highly-themed scare zones located throughout the event designed to complement the haunted houses, fear bleeds into the streets and fills the parks with hordes of menacing “scareactors” that lunge from every darkened corner to prey upon Halloween Horror Nights guests.
Guests can start planning their fall 2021 visit to Universal Orlando Resort to brave Halloween Horror Nights and enjoy other seasonal experiences across the destination by visiting www.universalorlando.com.
