Do you like scary ghost stories? Well if you do, head on down to Universal Studios. Universal just announced that it will feature Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, in California and Florida. This is a redemption year for fans, with the event on hold last year due towards the pandemic. Horror is now back better than ever!

Mike Flanagan (the director who adapted The Haunting of Hill House for Netflix) will immerse guests in this haunted attraction this Halloween season. Guests will learn about the Crain family inside of the house that changed their lives forever. Amblin Television and Paramount helped produced the show with Netflix. The show debuted back on October 2018.

The Haunting of Hill House comes to Horror Nights

Flanagan shared his thoughts about the event:

“I have loved Halloween Horror Nights for so long,” Mike Flanagan, creator and director of the Netflix series, said in a statement. “Some of my favorite memories of Halloween were made at Universal Studios, screaming and laughing with my friends. It is such an honor to be included among such fantastic Haunts, and I’m so glad that fans will be able to walk the halls of Hill House this Halloween.”
