You Oughta Be in Pictures

Lights, Camera, Action – with two completely original Event Icons now under their belt, the Halloween Horror Nights™ Design Team took inspiration from Universal’s history of horror movies and developed a truly psychotic Director named Paolo Ravinksi. The Director would create indy-snuff films in which his subjects would be tortured by means electrocution or eviscerated by sharp hooks. His lust for blood, and getting the perfect shot, created a truly intoxicating marketing campaign that terrified park visitors.

Event Facts

  • Halloween Horror Nights™ 13 was just another step in the evolution of the event. Creating its third original icon (excluding the scrapped icon Eddie from 2001), The Director, Universal had created a strong and original set of properties.
  • In its second year held inside Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Universal upped the Haunted Houses to a record number of six.
  • According to early speculation and news reports, Universal originally planned to have a so-called "extreme house" at this year’s event. The house was to be located in the Carnage Warehouse and required visitors to be over the age of 18 to walk through – rumors began to speculate that the actors inside the house were to be allowed to touch guests, and that sections had certain physical requirements. Looking closely at the final event map for 2003, the location for the house was drawn onto the guide but left blank.
  • Scream House: Revisited, the sequel to the ever-popular Scream House from Halloween Horror Nights™: Islands of Fear, had 12 show scenes and was 495 feet in length. The house was staffed with a total of 82 actors and saw up to 2,100 visitors per hour.
  • The Director's marquee house, All Nite Die-In, had 9 show scenes and was 340 feet in length. The house was staffed with a total of 62 actors and saw up to 2,100 visitors per hour.

    To date, Psycho Scareapy and All Nite Die-In remain two of my favorite house experiences. I love that every film featured in Die-In as "inspiration" has since come to the event in an official capacity.
