Universal Confirm The Shining For Halloween Horror Nights 27

Hey Thrill Seekers,

We were literally talking about this yesterday on OAT Live as a rumour but its a rumour no more…

Universal have just confirmed that the next house for Halloween Horror Nights 27 will the Stephen King book The Shining. It looks like the creatives at Universal will base the house around the Stanley Kubrick film that starred Jack Nicholson.

Here’s what Charles Grey writer and show director for Halloween Horror Nights had to say;

There are so many intense and creepy moments packed in the whole film. So we held hands, took a deep breath, and entered the Overlook Hotel.

I just finished looking at some of the house designs and am thrilled by the story we’re telling. It will be the warped psychological thriller you know and love with our own Halloween Horror Nights twist.

We cast the Overlook Hotel as the aggressor and view it as if you have the “shining.” Our goal is to have you constantly doing a double take and give you that, “Did I just see that?” feeling.

After watching this movie for the first time I remember saying, “I would never go into room 237.” So, of course, that’s where we’re going to take you: all the places you shouldn’t go.

You’ll come face-to-face with the murderous, ghostly entities around every corner. And of course, the best part will be trying to escape the sharpened edge of an axe.

Check out the trailer here –

As one of the most iconic horror flicks ever made with some epic scenes The Shining is sure to translate into one of the scariest Halloween Horror Nights Houses yet!
