New, 3 comments

Universal Orlando's annual Halloween Horror Nights 23, which includes attractions inspired by the Resident Evil series, will open Sept. 20 until Nov. 2 in Florida.

Created in collaboration with Capcom, visitors to the Resident Evil-themed haunted house will become survivors inside Raccoon City, where they will encounter Nemesis, Lickers, zombies and packs of Cerberuses. A section of the house will depict a fight scene on pause, “as if the gamer has taken a quick break before returning to the horror of Raccoon City.”

“The games have become synonymous with survival horror and we look forward to delivering a new way for consumers to experience the Resident Evil world we have created in the haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights," Resident Evil 6 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said in statement.

This year, Resident Evil joins other themes such as An American Werewolf in London, Mexican urban legend La Llorona, The Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead and The Walking Dead TV series, which will have a dedicated Halloween Horror Nights street experience. .

"We were able to create incredibly elaborate sets that plant you right in the midst of Raccoon City's apocalyptic nightmare, along with terrifying adversaries that will send them running." creative director for Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights, Michael Aiello said in a statement.

Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights 22 included themes based on The Walking Dead series and Silent Hill video game series. Interested parties can fin out more on the official Halloween Horror Nights website.
