Christmas Time Invades Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights
You better watch out, you better not cry, Better not pout, I’m telling you why Krampus is comin’ to town. That’s right, forget Rudolph he is so yesterday. Krampus is everyone’s new favorite lovable creature during this Holiday season. When I say Holiday I mean the one we really care about Halloween.
Tis the season for Krampus as Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort bring the terrifying dark Christmas legend to life in an all-new “Halloween Horror Nights” maze beginning September 16, 2016.
The creative minds behind the nation’s best and most extreme Halloween events unleash the wrath of Krampus, Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures’ Christmas-themed horror film co-written and directed by Michael Dougherty, in a sinister new “Halloween Horror Nights” maze.
The dead of winter sets the stage for the terror that’s about to unfold one cold, dank and dreary Christmas Eve as the fabled anthropomorphic “half-goat, half-demon” horned creature emerges to terrorize those devoid of holiday spirit. In scenes lifted from the film, guests will navigate the dysfunctional Engel family home to encounter the evil ancient spirit of Krampus – the dark shadow of Saint Nicholas – and his band of Dark Elves and sinister Gingerbread Men, who cause the family to fight to see the light of day.
