Description: Get ready for three twisted Blumhouse Productions films in one bone-chilling experience. Come face-to-face with the most iconic and unnerving moments from the blockbuster The Purge franchise, Sinister movies and soon-to-be released Happy Death Day.

In The Purge section, you will attempt to survive the night, immersed in the film property’s depraved world where all crime is declared legal in the government’s annually sanctioned 12-hour cleansing of society. In what can be described as a living trailer for Happy Death Day, you will encounter the deja vu scenario, forced to relive the last day of your lives over and over again, trying to escape a mysterious masked killer. Then, in Sinister, encounter an ancient pagan deity who is determined to trap you for all eternity in the sordid shadow world of the dead.

My Thoughts: In a surprise turn of events, The Horrors of Blumhouse, ended up being the best maze of the night! Though the over-saturation of The Purge has begun to become tiresome, the execution of this house was superb and provided immense opportunities for quality scares. It also didn’t disappoint as it did a great job of showing complete lawlessness and carnage.

I loved walking through the upcoming Happy Death Day portion and was scared numerous times by the masked baby killer. And Sinister, one of my favorite films from the folks over at Blumhouse, set the perfect ambiance of creepiness and terror. The set design, the makeup, and overall feeling of dread was on point and the actors brought their A-game. If there is one house you need to go to at Halloween Horror Nights, it’s definitely The Horrors of Blumhouse.
