REDRUM! It’s finally official! We have our second house announced for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort! Coming to HHN27 is Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.
This was accidentally leaked a few weeks ago due to it being posted on a travel agent’s website so it’s really not a surprise. But now we can say it’s finally coming and I am incredibly excited to see this classic film come to life right before me.
Based on Stephen King’s chilling novel of the same name, Stanley Kubrick took the material and made it his own. And if you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it, especially if you will be entering this house so you know what details to look for. The film is packed with amazing visual elements and characters.
Elevators pour blood out, hallways are stalked by the Grady sisters – two creepy little girl twins, Room 237 contains the ghost of a woman who committed suicide, but is she friendly or evil? The list goes on. And of course, there’s the famous “Here’s Johnny!” scene with the axe and walking through the snowy hedge maze will be perfect for scares.
So what do you guys think? Excited to see thi
s classic horror film come alive in person? Do you think it’ll be the most popular house of the event? Who’s to say, we only have 2 houses announced so far. The Shining will be joining the ranks of American Horror Story. Halloween Horror Nights 27 is one of Universal Orlando’s premiere events and runs this year from September 15 to November 4.
