The first details about this year's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios were released at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. Look for scenes and personalities from the Silent Hill video games and films to be incorporated into one of the haunted-house mazes of the event, which begins Sept. 21.
"For the first time ever, we're tackling a video-game franchise and bringing it to life at Halloween Horror Nights," Jim Timon, senior vice president of entertainment at Universal Orlando, said in a video announcement available on YouTube.
Silent Hill environments and characters, including Pyramid Head, Fog World, Otherworld and the nurses will be seen, John Murdy, creative director at Universal Hollywood, said in the video. Silent Hill will be used in Halloween Horror Nights on both coasts.
“We can’t wait to watch our guests actually walk into the hell that is Silent Hill,” Timon said in a news release on Monday. "We are very excited to create an unparalleled, all-new level of horror for our guests,” he said.
There have been several versions of the video game produced, and it spawned a 2006 feature film, which earned about $100 million. A sequel called "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D," starring Sean Bean, Adelaide Clemens, Carrie-Anne Moss and Malcolm McDowell, is set to debut Oct. 26.
Halloween Horror Nights is an after-hours, extra-ticket event at Universal Studios featuring elaborate haunted-house mazes, shows and scare zones. It operates 25 select nights from Sept. 21 to Oct. 31. Tickets are on sale.
