Universal City, CA â€“ In a bold, new approach to bringing iconic horror films to life duringÂ “Halloween Horror Nights,”Â Universal Studios HollywoodÂ will break new ground with the introduction of its first ever 3D horror-comedy maze, â€œThis is the End 3D,â€ based on 2013â€™s hit movie starring James Franco, Seth Rogen Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson.Â â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ begins on Friday, September 18, 2015.
The hilarity of this genre-defying blockbuster movie,Â This is the End, will take a dark turn in this all-new maze experience that will come to life in hypnotic 3D. The end of the world will begin as guests head to the ultimate A-list party at James Francoâ€™s new Hollywood Hills home, before the Apocalypse strikes and they find themselves trapped in a life-and-death struggle against the demons of the underworld.Â With the fate of humanity at the crossroads of heaven and hell, â€œThis is the End 3Dâ€ will offer defining moments for those guests brave enough to tempt the devil as their destiny hangs in the balance to be damned for eternity or raptured to heaven engulfed in a sea of blue light.
â€œThis is the EndÂ brings a new dimension of fear to â€˜Halloween Horror Nightsâ€™ by fusing the best of two extreme worldsâ€”horror and comedyâ€” to create a literal and figurative three-dimensional experiential version of the film,â€ said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of â€œHalloween Horror Nights.â€Â â€œOur collaboration with James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill to transform this outrageous movie into a terrifying maze underscores the impact of â€˜Halloween Horror Nightsâ€™ as one the most influential Halloween events around.â€
“Halloween Horror Nights”Â 2015 atÂ Universal Studios HollywoodÂ kicks off on Friday, September 18 and continues on select nights through November 1. The popular event brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in a living, breathing, three-dimensional world of terror.Â Featuring an all-new slate ofÂ unrivaled film production quality mazes, frightful scare zones and a fully re-imagined â€œTerror Tramâ€ experienceÂ uniquely themed to todayâ€™s most definitive horror properties, â€œHalloween Horror Nightsâ€ will taunt, terrorize and torment guests withÂ spine-chilling haunted attractionsÂ during Southern Californiaâ€™s most extreme Halloween experience.
