Universal Studios has announced another haunted house for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

As a Central Florida resident, I personally rarely go to any of the theme parks (while I do enjoy them, tickets are costly, and it’s just too hot during 75% of the year). The exception to my rule is always Halloween Horror Nights, which has not disappointed me in the 20+ years I have been attending. I save money throughout the year so I can splurge on the Express Pass, thereby ensuring that I will be able to visit each and every haunted house at least once.

The houses for 2022 look very promising so far. Previously announced were a house based on the 1978 version of Halloween and Universal Monsters: Legends Collide. Now comes the news of another all-new attraction, The Horrors of Blumhouse.

Most horror fans are familiar with Blumhouse, the production company known for their blockbuster horror films. They are responsible for films such as Pananormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge, Get Out and the recent Halloween sequels.

Halloween Horror Nights will be basing their newest announced house on two Blumhouse productions: 2020’s horror-comedy Freaky and their newest film, The Black Phone. A screening of The Black Phone is on my weekend agenda, and it looks pretty terrifying, so I am really looking forward to visiting The Horrors of Blumhouse at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.

The Horrors of Blumhouse will bring us up close and personal with The Black Phone‘s terrifying villain “The Grabber”, who is fond of making people disappear…particularly children. Listen carefully as you work your way through The Grabber’s house, his past victims will be whispering hints to you to try and help you escape.

The Freaky portion of the house challenges us to escape serial killer “The Butcher”, who has been cursed by the La Dola Dagger, and hides inside the body of an innocent-looking high school girl.

Halloween Horror Nights begins September 2 at Universal Orlando Resort, and September 8 at Universal Studios Hollywood. The last day for both parks is October 31. For ticketing info, pricing, and add-ons, check out the websites for Universal Orlando Resort or Universal Studios Hollywood.

More haunted houses will be announced soon, so keep your eyes on 1428 Elm for the terrifying updates.
