HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA – October 18, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) — If you’re a fan of Haunted Houses and with Halloween just around the corner, it’d be a great time to visit one of America’s favorite haunts; Universal Studios in Hollywood.

I recently had the chance to go and check out one of their six movie-based haunted houses.

Working with the top creative people in the business, Universal Studios Hollywood has designed the absolute best haunted attractions anywhere.

The houses are based on popular themes such as; “The Walking Dead,” “Crimson Peak,” “Alien Vs Predator,” “Halloween,” “This is the End” and “Insidious.”

It’s all part of Universal Studios Hollywood‘s “Halloween Horror Nights,” a 25 year tradition at Universal Studios. The event, which began in 1991, features haunted houses, “scare zones” and live entertainments; many of which utilize familiar characters and themes from the movies.

The haunted house I checked out was “Insidious: Return to the Further,” which is based on the “Insidious” film franchise.

‘The Further’ is a world far beyond our own, yet it’s all around us – a place without time as we know it. It’s a dark realm filled with the tortured souls of the dead. A place not meant for the living… they crave life; the chance to live again. But there are other entities who are malevolent and have a more insidious agenda.

A new threat has crossed over from that world into ours, a threat that does not merely seek to possess the souls of the living but to steal the living back to their world of shadows and keep them there for eternity. To face this new threat, we are going to have to confront the demons where they live; we are going to have to ‘Return to The Further!’

Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights” runs through November 1. For more information about Universal Studios Hollywood and Halloween Haunted Nights just click the links.
