2021 Halloween Horror Nights Houses

Halloween Horror Nights 2009

1. Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice was the first house that was announced this year. A good call since Beetlejuice was the first “ghost host” of Halloween Horror Nights when it was called Fright Nights (1991).

In this house based on Warner Bros. Pictures and Tim Burton’s Academy Award-winning horror-fantasy film, you’ll go through Beetlejuice’s every move through the incredible fantastic recreated scenes right from the movie brought to you in a way that only Universal Creative can achieve.

What to Expect in the Beetlejuice House at HHN

On your visit to this house you’ll see some of the most infamous scenes listed below:

3. Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives

This HHN haunted house will pick up where the classic 1935 film, The Bride of Frankenstein, left off. “Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives” will place you right in the middle of the madness as the Bride becomes insanely obsessed with bringing Frankenstein’s Monster to life.

Will she succeed? You will see, but try not to get in her way or you’ll become a lost victim in her fortress.

4. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

This horror franchise is no stranger to Halloween Horror Nights. For this year’s event, you will relive the most familiar scenes from this 1974 film such as:

  • The dilapidated gas station
  • Infamous old farmhouse and more!

Just know that this house will be as intense as the classic slasher film. The movie held nothing back so you can expect the same from Universal. So, be ready to run for your life as Leatherface appears around every corner to pull you deep into his catacomb.

5. Halloween Horror Nights Icons: Captured

I think that this is my most anticipated house for HHN this year! The Universal Creative Team is bringing out all of the top icons of Horror Nights into one major haunted house to horrify every guest!

  • Jack the Clown: the most infamous and feared HHN icon will be up to his same tricks along with his assistant Chance
  • The Director: this obsessive filmmaker is ready to capture his victims on film for his very own living horror movie
  • The Usher: this deranged theater attendant is ready to do whatever it takes to keep order in his movie theater…
  • The Storyteller: this creepy lady loves engulfing her victims with tales of terror where no one lives happily ever after

6. Welcome to SCarey: Horror in the Heartland

Believe it or not, many of the original story ideas and concept come from the eerie town of Carey, Ohio. So, it’s not a surprise that Universal wants to commemorate this iconic year with a house dedicated to this demented place.

According to Universal, Welcome to SCarey: Horror in the Heartland  will transport you back to the shady township of Carey and enter familiar settings such as:

  • Cave of vampires from The Hive
  • The decrepit attic of Dead End
  • Meetz Meats human deli from Leave it to Cleaver

7. Case Files Unearthed: Legendary Truth

Legendary Truth is an original HHN story that is another fan favorite addition to this event.

This year’s dark experience will take you through the steps of Boris Shuster (a private eye investigator of the supernatural) who will search New York City tirelessly for  nightmarish beings such as ghouls, poltergeists and more!

8. The Wicked Growth: Realm of the Pumpkin

In this haunted maze the Pumpkin Lord prepares for his annual human harvest. As you embark on this horrifying journey, you’ll go through an endless maze of traditional Halloween setups such as:

  • a dilapidated haunted house
  • an ominous graveyard
  • a wicked witch’s cottage

9. Puppet Theatre: Captive Audience

Who hates puppets?

I do! So, it’s absolutely understandable (*rolls eyes) why Universal would take such a creepy childhood memory and place it in an environment meant to traumatize me (and YOU) even more!

According to Universal, you will be transported to San Francisco’s abandoned Grandeur Theatre in the early 1900’s. They’ll find the Pasek’s Puppet Troupe trapped within its ruins in the midst of rehearsing for their next grisly performance. With a fanatical need to entertain any captive audience, the troupe has turned to transforming trespassers into living puppets – dismantling and sewing them back together as life-sized marionettes for additions to their horrific encore. Will guests escape in one piece or will it be their final curtain call? No matter what, the show must go on…

10. Revenge of the Tooth Fairy

Every wondered what would happen if you left your tooth under your pillow? You’ll find out with this HHN house called Revenge of the Tooth Fairy.

The terrorizing events in this house arise because of parents bargaining with never satisfied goblin-esque tooth fairies for protection of their children. These demented, pearly-white teeth obsessed creatures want all children to give up their baby teeth or pay a gruesome price.
