WITH GROUNDBREAKING 'LIVE' ATTRACTION AT HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS IV
Universal City, California
- The two Emmy-nominated hit television series "Buffy The Vampire Slayer
" and "Angel," will come to life at Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween
Horror Nights IV in October with "Buffy & Angel: Hellmouth Haunt,"
an all-new multi-media Halloween attraction capturing the terror, excitement,
supernatural adventure and dark humor of the action-packed dramatic thrillers.
"Buffy and Angel: Hellmouth
Haunt" is the first live attraction based on either of the two series.
The terror-filled attraction, to be created on one of Universal's historic
sound stages, will open with Halloween Horror Nights IV on Friday the 13th
of October and continue for seven additional nights on October 14, 20,
21, 27, 28, 29 and 31.
Through the recreation
of actual sets, live action stunts, video and a series of special effects,
"Buffy and Angel: Hellmouth Haunt" will introduce Halloween Horror Nights'
guests to the lore of the Slayer and of the Hellmouth, the mystical porthole
where the demons of the netherworld converge. Murderous demons lurk in
every dark corner, attacking guests relentlessly.
Combining narrative story
elements with visceral "scares," the attraction will mark the first time
that current television programs are adapted as a Halloween attraction.
