We first told you in mid-July that Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights was developing a maze based on Insidious this Halloween season and, this weekend, the organizers have confirmed Insidious: Into the Further will transport guests to a dark realm where malevolent souls and demonic entities exist in the tormented existence of their past lives at Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood.
Based on the 2010 horror thriller Insidious and the upcoming sequel Insidious: Chapter 2, the haunted attraction joins the highly-anticipated line up of terrifying mazes at the award-winning Halloween event, opening September 20th.
The nightmare journey focuses on the evil spirit that has haunted the Lambert clan for two generations. Maze-goers will travel into the world of the dead to confront the malicious souls hell-bent on bringing suffering to the living.
“To bring the paranormal world of ‘Insidious’ to life, we’re collaborating with the film’s director James Wan, writer/co-star Leigh Whannell and producer Jason Blum, who all happen to be huge fans of our Halloween event,” said “Halloween Horror Nights” Creative Director John Murdy. “It’s an incredible opportunity to partner with filmmakers who share our passion for bringing nightmares of the silver screen to life and who are committed to making every scene and every nuance of the maze as authentic and unsettling as their film.”
The “Insidious: Into The Further” terror begins even before guests enter the maze, as paranormal investigators ‘Tucker’ and ‘Specs’ anxiously forewarn them about the evil that lurks within. Visitors soon learn that the pair’s caution should have been heeded, as they traverse through the most frightening scenes from both films.
“This attraction takes guests through the utter horror of both ‘Insidious’ and ‘Insidious: Chapter 2’,” said Director James Wan. “The Lipstick Demon, The Long Haired Fiend and the victims he murdered – they all come together in a perfect storm within the maze. In fact, I think this maze is the closest you can come to experiencing the kind of fear portrayed in our films, without actually living through it yourself.”
