Horror News Network’s Summer 2018 Horror Movie Preview

In recent years, studios have loaded up their summer release schedules with a wide range of horror films.  This was never more apparent than in 2016 when Lights Out, Don’t Breathe, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Purge: Election Year,  and the Conjuring 2 made large sums of cash (for the most part on austere budgets) and helped to shore up an otherwise lackluster summer for movies.  2017’s list of summer horror films were not as notable, with the two exceptions being the surprise hit  47 Meters Down and the prequel Annabelle Creation. read more

‘Stranger Things’ Announced as the First Maze for Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights

Hot on the heels of Universal Studio’s announcement of the dates for 2018’s Halloween Horror Nights, the theme park empire announced today that the first maze would be dedicated to none other than Netflix’s Stranger Things.

Universal’s Patrick Braillard described some of the initial details of the maze (which will be featured on both coasts at Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood) stating that it would recreate “…some of the show’s most iconic scenes, 80’s settings, and most loved characters (#RIPBarb).  You’ll faithfully follow the storyline, starting off on Mirkwood and then quickly moving to inside Hawkins National Laboratory where things have gone terribly, terribly wrong.  From there you will experience all the most memorable moments and environments from the show while being hunted at every turn by the Demogorgon.” read more
