Silent Hill has infiltrated all sorts of freaky mediums, and this Halloween the hit video game universe will haunt Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights events. Instead of a spooky movie or suspenseful video game, Silent Hill is getting the haunted maze treatment complete with creates from the alternate dimension.
Guests will be tormented by the iconic nurses and the executioner, set behind Konami’s Silent Hill universe. The franchise has sold millions of copies worldwide and has brought in more than $100 million at the box office for the first film, “Silent Hill.” The sequel to the original film, ”Silent Hill: Revelation 3D” will be released on Oct. 26.
The Halloween Horror Nights events at Universal Studios has more than 20 years of history. It’s one of the best rated Halloween events.
“Silent Hill has terrified fans for over a decade by pioneering psychological horror genre first through video games and moving into films and graphic novels,” said Careen Yapp, Vice President Acquisitions and Franchise Development of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “Now we’re giving fans the next evolution of terror as we work with the Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights teams to create a real world Silent Hill experience just as terrifying as the fans have come to expect.”
“We are thrilled to be working with our friends at Universal to bring the horror of Silent Hill to this next level of reality,” said film producer Samuel Hadida. “For newcomers and long time followers alike, there could be no better introduction to the terror that will await them in theatres on October 26 when we launch SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D onto the world.”
“This is our first partnership with a video game property and we are very excited to create an unparalleled, all-new level of horror for our guests,” said Jim Timon, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Universal Orlando Resort. “We can’t wait to watch our guests actually walk into the hell that is Silent Hill.”
