Beware -- "The Purge" is coming to Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights.
Inspired by Universal Pictures' latest box office thriller, Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort will soon unveil a new scarezone – "The Purge: Anarchy" – as part of the upcoming Halloween Horror Nights.
“‘Halloween Horror Nights’ is about taking guests out of their comfort zones and placing them at the core of unimaginable horror,” said John Murdy, Universal Studios Hollywood’s Creative Director for and Executive Producer of “Halloween Horror Nights.” “Because the premise of ‘The Purge’ could theoretically happen, our scare-zone elevates that sense of fear and forces you to really watch your back. Imagining how your neighbor, friend or enemy could take revenge on you without retribution because you wronged them takes horror to a whole new level, and we wanted to bring that gut-wrenching terror to every one of our guests.”
The film – which brought in more than $28 million in its opening weekend last week – is the sequel to the popular 2013 film, based on the premise that for 12 hours every year, all crime is legal… even murder.
"The Purge: Anarchy" joins previously announced themes for this year's spectacle, including "The Walking Dead" and "From Dusk Till Dawn."
