EVIL DEAD RISE Coming to Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights (2024)

Last Updated on March 16, 2024 by Angel Melanson

We are about one month away from Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights kicking us off into haunt season, and we’ve got the full class of 2023 HHN haunt lineup to celebrate! Universal previously announced houses based on The Exorcist: Believer, Stranger Things 4, Chucky, The Last of Us, and Universal Monsters: Unmasked. Today we get three more announcements and are losing our minds over Evil Dead Rise coming to HHN. We speculated, we wished, we made human sacrifices… that is neither here nor there, the point is… it’s happening! And might I add, this is the second year in a row that a FANGORIA cover has been turned into a Horror Nights haunt. Last year we had a double dose with Freaky (Vol 2 Issue #9) and The Black Phone (Vol 2 Issue #14) and this year’s Evil Dead Rise (Vol 2 Issue #19). We just think that’s neat.

Monstruos: The Monsters of Latin America and Holidayz in Hell will be rounding out this year’s offerings. Our minds are reeling at the possibilities of being stuck in a big city high-rise setting with Deadites, and being tormented with chants of “Mommy’s with the maggots now!” Last year, Universal featured a La Llorona house based on the morbid Latin American folktale of the wailing woman and her drowned children, it was one of the scariest in the lineup, and I’m excited to see what they can do as they expand the scope to include more Latin American monsters. Chupacabra, anyone? This year’s Terror Tram is always a signature staple of HHN, as Universal is the only haunt that can fully immerse you in the backlot where some of the best horror movies ever to grace the screen have been shot. To think Karloff and Lugosi stalked around these very buildings adds a certain je ne sais quoi to it all. The theme of the tram itself rotates, sometimes guests face killer clowns, and sometimes Chucky is running the show. This year’s tram has been dubbed The Exterminatorz… yeah, it’s bug-centric, and I’m already squirming. I can’t look! Get your first peek at this year’s Terror Tram below along with a full lineup of this year’s haunts.
