This is the news I have been waiting for, more classic villain announcements for this years Halloween Horror Nights! This time, Universal Studios Hollywood have announced a maze based on perhaps the two most iconic horror villains of all time, Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees.
You can check out the trailer below:
Creative Director for Halloween Horror Nights had this to say on the new Freddy vs. Jason maze:
You’ll be thrust into the middle of an epic battle between horror’s greatest slashers, a battle through the twisted landscape of nightmares. A battle that rages across a twisted landscape of nightmares, from the haunted shores of Camp Crystal Lake to the house at 1428 Elm Street. The battle culminates in a final showdown amongst the burned out ruins of an abandoned boiler factory, where Freddy’s evil legacy began! In this fight to the death, someone must WIN and someone must LOSE! Will you make it to the end to find out?
Both Freddy and Jason are my personal two favourite horror villains (with Freddy edging ahead in my books) and it is fantastic to see a brand new and original take on Freddy vs. Jason. Universal stated the maze would borrow from the movie but wouldn’t be limited by it so with that in mind there’s bound to be some unique and interesting effects not seen in either movie before.
This years Halloween Horror Nights looks to be packed full of classic horror villains and I am very happy about this, what are your thoughts?
