Universal City, Calif. (August 31, 2023) – Acclaimed horror production company Blumhouse brings two new live entertainment experiences, “The Purge: Dangerous Waters” and “Blumhouse: Behind the Screams,” inspired by some of its blockbuster films, to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. A trio of bone-chilling scare zones and the park’s signature Terror Tram, coupled with the terrifying line-up of eight haunted houses, round out this year’s screams, beginning on Thursday, September 7.
It’s been a decade since The Purge first declared all crime legal for 12 hours as part of the government’s annually sanctioned Purge and an iconic horror franchise was born. Now, for the first time, “The Purge: Dangerous Waters” takes the blockbuster film franchise into an entirely new environment…open waters, in an all-new live show.
It’s a race against time when a politician and his entourage escape to an island to avoid The Purge. Sanctuary is fleeting when the island is quickly overrun by Purgers and the hunt is on. Located in the WaterWorld venue and featuring adrenaline-filled action sequences, stunts, spectacular lighting and laser effects, high fall fire burns and massive explosions, “The Purge: Dangerous Waters” celebrates an evening of anarchy without thought of punishment or fear of retribution.
“Blumhouse: Behind the Screams” is an original concept that showcases a selection of Blumhouse horror films, including the highly anticipated films Five Nights at Freddy’s and The Exorcist: Believer, and fan-loving hits like M3GAN and The Black Phone. This unique experience breaks the fourth wall and invites guests to explore these films as they step through the silver screen for an up-close look at authentic film props, costume displays and terrifying character encounters.
More terror will come to life in three new scare zones designed to torment guests as they navigate their way through Halloween Horror Nights. These include:
The full lineup of fear continues with eight haunted houses plus the Terror Tram experience:
Universal Studios Hollywood offers a variety of Halloween Horror Night ticket options, including General Admission, Universal Express, After 2 P.M. Day/Night, and the premium R.I.P. Tour, as well as the Early Access Ticket, which provides access to select haunted houses prior to the scheduled event opening (starting at 5:30 p.m., subject to change), and the popular Frequent Fear Pass and Ultimate Fear Pass.

New Hair-Raising Houses and Slashing Scare Zones
Guests will begin their journey venturing beneath the surface of the sea in the all-new “D3LER1UM666 Laboratories.” Surrounded by the near-infinite depths below and expansive oceans beyond, peer into the darkness that engulfs an inescapable research headquarters before time runs out. Transport to the arctic terrain in pursuit of Frost, captured following her frigid fame and frostbite-ridden touch. Follow the smoke of Frost’s fiery twin, Flame in the brand-new house, “BENEATH THE ICE – The Meltdown,” soon to be the hottest rescue attempt ever made. Once free, there is nowhere to run.

Trek through a lethal landfill of mutant creatures, humans, and even plants hungry for a fright in the all-new “Toxic Turmoil.” Amid the chemical chaos are surprises in store – not everything is as it seems or as it was. If escape from infection was easy, do not be so fooled by the brand new “Blood Light District”, a borough known to tempt the faint of heart. The beauty and beckoning of their inhabitants are a curse, binding victims in bond and blood. Completing the cauldron of chills is the unveiling of “Carn-EVIL Pier.” Fun transitions to fright in the cloud of the night as freaks, barkers, and demented clowns’ welcome guests to the show. Step up to the plate, but there is a lot at stake! Appearing alongside these new nightmares are fan favorites “Portal of Passage,” “Frozen in Terror: Alive in the Ice,” “Witchcraft Bayou,” and “Terrors of the Deep.”

Howl-O-Scream’s fantastic frights would be incomplete without the spectacular share of bites and flights. Returning for the event’s triple threat is the “Longshoremen Tavern,” where the longshoremen are dying to entertain those who enter their doors. A few scare zones away is the restoration of “Siren’s Last Call,” a hideaway for the Siren’s followers and home to the signature drink The Siren’s Kiss.
