This fall, the demented multiverse of the popular horror video game and motion picture franchise, Silent Hill, will come to life in a haunted maze at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywoods Halloween Horror Nights events, giving fans of the game series the opportunity to get a taste for what it would be like in real life...
This is not a game. This is not a movie. This is real. And guests will be tormented by horrifying creatures from an alternate dimension, including the iconic deformed nurses and the executioner.
Konami's ground-breaking Silent Hill series is heralded for its psychologically-charged, horrific plot, which is centered around the disturbing, ash-covered town of Silent Hill -- a place where reality gives way to other dimensions. In this demonic world the physical laws of nature no longer apply and nightmarish monsters abound. Characters try to escape back to the safety of reality but constant brutal attacks by disjointed, knife-wielding beings make survival seem impossible.
Silent Hill has sold more than seven million video game copies worldwide, earning more than $100 million at the box office with the first film, Silent Hill, and spawning a hit comic book series and graphic novels -- and not it gets a live-action Halloween event.
Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights events have a more than 20-year history of creating incredibly entertaining, horrifying Halloween experiences that are consistently rated among the nations best. The events on each coast feature highly-themed, disturbingly real, haunted mazes based on everything from film to nightmares -- and streets filled with hundreds of specially trained scareactors.
"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."
