La Llorona: Cazadora de Niños Returns to HHN

The terrifying Mexican legend of La Llorona returns to Universal Studios Hollywood in the reimagined “Halloween Horror Nights” maze, “La Llorona: Cazadora de Niños.”

La Llorona, the fearful story of melancholy and murder that has terrified Mexican and Latin American children for generations, returns to Halloween Horror Nights, recounting the tortured tale of a mother who drowns her children in a desperate attempt to win a lost love.  When her attempt fails, she drowns herself and is doomed to wander the earth forever after.

According to the legend, La Llorona’s eternally piercing nocturnal cries—“My children!  Where are my children?”—can be heard as her frail, drenched body lurks throughout the dead of night.  Her unsightly presence elicits unwavering dread from the helpless village inhabitants or maze guests as it woefully signifies impending death.

“La Llorona:  Cazadora de Niños,” which translates to “Weeping Woman:  The Child Hunter,” will feature elaborate sets depicting scenes of a small Mexican village and will tell the haunting story through the mind’s eye of a child, riddled with despair and dread, gore and evil.

The HHN Horror Never Ends

“Universal Monsters Remix”

 Universal’s infamous legacy of horror will come to an afterlife in “Universal Monsters Remix,” an all-new terrifying experience that re-imagines the classic horror icons of yesteryear for the 21st century and immerses them in the twisted confines of electronica-inspired music during “Halloween Horror Nights.”

Set within the antechambers of an eerily gothic castle, the new “Universal Monsters Remix” maze will unleash a cast of movies’ most legendary creatures, including Frankenstein’s Monster and his Bride, Dracula and his Brides, Phantom of the Opera and The Wolf Man.

From deep within the stone fortress, accompanied by ominous strobe lighting effects, guests will traverse dark and dank arteries of rotting catacombs, hallowed underground crypts and pagan sacrificial burial chambers.  Laced with the murmur of dialogue from Universal’s catalogue of horror films, guests will be besieged by the relentless sounds of high-energy, horror-inspired dance, dub-step and industrial music.

Terror-Filled “Scare Zones”

Lurking in dark corners and prowling for prey throughout “Halloween Horror Nights” are countless “scare-actors” and numerous horror-filled “Scare Zones” designed to startle, shock and scare guests at every twist and turn.  This year, “Scare Zones” will provoke a new sense of terror in guests.

Silent Hill:  The most depraved small town residents will mercilessly torment anyone who treks into the “Silent Hill” Scare Zone corridor.  While the infamous Bogeyman seeks revenge, a group of hideously disfigured Nurses prepare to scar – physically and emotionally – unsuspecting victims that step into their path.  There will be no way of escaping the plight of his “Silent Hill” Scare Zone when Pyramid Head, the ruthless executioner of the “Other World” stabs aimlessly in the dark for a target in the dead of night.

Toyz:  Desperate times have taken a pathetic toll on the once friendly neighborhood Toy Maker.  A deceitful storefront façade beckons entry to “Toyz,” a seemingly blissful playland that juxtaposes the inner terror plaguing the shop where cruel and unspeakable horrors await.

Witches:  A coven of “Witches” burned at the stake to purge a local seaport village of their pagan influence has left this clan of black art sorcerers hell-bent on revenge.  Hunted and killed like wild animals, the Witches” swore eternal vengeance on their blood-thirsty killers and return on autumn nights to exorcise justice on those in their midst by burning the living.

Killer Klownz:  The circus may have come to town, but it is the “Killer Klownz” that are running the show in this gang-filled Scare Zone of violent killer clowns whose three ring circus entertains to the applause of murder and mayhem.
