Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses Returning to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights with New Mazes


I have never been to Halloween Horror Nights at either of the Universal Studios theme parks (Orlando and Hollywood), but they sure do sound fun! As you would expect from those particular theme parks, there’s always a bunch of haunted houses/mazes based on notable horror movies. For example, this year, they’ll have haunted houses themed around recent hits, like Us and Stranger Things, and classics, like Ghostbusters and Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

They will also, it has now been announced, be bringing back their maze based on Rob Zombie’s feature film directorial debut, House of 1,000 Corpses. Based on Captain Spaulding’s Museum of Monsters and Madmen from the flick, the maze made its debut in 2010, but is now getting some unspecified updates to lure fans back.

The Universal website describes the attraction thusly:

“This fall, you’ll discover firsthand why this house is built on horror. Come face-to-face with the psychotic Firefly family and their collection of blood and gore. Watch ‘The Legend of Doctor Satan’ come to life right before your eyes. Keep a lookout for the latest addition to Captain Spaulding’s Museum of Monsters and Madmen, Fish Boy! And if you’re lucky, you’ll escape the house as fast as a rabbit, minus the fluffy bunny costume and tragic ending.”

So that sounds pretty rad.

Halloween Horror Nights will begin on Friday, September 6 in Orlando and a week later in Hollywood. Tickets are on sale now here (Orlando) and here (Hollywood).

Not coincidentally, 3 from Hell, the second sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses, will screen in select theaters from September 16-18. Check out the trailer here.
