Greg Nicotero is helping to design a maze that celebrates both the original 1982 anthology and release of the new series which will premier on Shudder.
Halloween Horror Nights opens on Friday, September 13th. The maze entices guests to immerse themselves into 5 stories that are being redesigned for the series. Fans of the original anthology will remember stories such as Fathers Day and The Crate.
In the 80s, Creepshow was originally created by George Romero, with added special effects by Tom Savini. The short horror stories were designed after the success of low budget realistic zombie films that set the bar for horror genre.
“I’ve partnered with Universal Studios Hollywood and ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ for years and it’s a thrill to bring ‘Creepshow’ to life for the fans as part of this year’s iconic event,” said Greg Nicotero. “I consider myself honored to have had the opportunity to work alongside George Romero and many other groundbreaking filmmakers who have inspired me. So to be able to create a television show based on the Creepshow movie, and then see it come to life as a ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ maze is a great way to pay tribute to this legendary filmmaker and introduce this incredible anthology series to a fans old and new.”
“We’re thrilled to bring this beloved horror classic to ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ as well as introduce our fans to the upcoming Shudder series,” said John Murdy, Executive Producer, “Halloween Horror Nights.” We’ve had a long association with Greg Nicotero as part of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and getting the opportunity to again work with his talented special effects team at KNB FX brings a whole other level of authenticity to this incredible maze experience.” (source Bloody Disgusting)
