This year’s Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios is shaping up to be one of the best ever. Not only will three classic monsters collide in a new maze, Michael Myers will slash his way through the park. And you can get a preview of the scares to come during Midsummer Scream.

Midsummer Scream, the world’s largest Halloween and horror convention, will bring HHN creative director John Murdy to the stage for a special presentation. Murdy will reveal exclusive details about this year’s Halloween Horror Nights event. Attendees will get a look inside the design process and also preview details about this year’s slate of haunted houses.
