Halloween Horror Nights 2015: “Crimson Peak” Maze Announced At Comic Con
Today at San Diego Comic Con International, Guillermo del Toro announced that Halloween Horror Nights in Los Angeles will feature a new maze based on del Toro’s upcoming movie “Crimson Peak”. The maze is intended to allow Halloween Horror Nights attendees to experience the movie from Crimson Peak’s lead character, Edith Cushing point of view. Guests will experience encounters with the souls who have fallen victim to Allerdale Hall mansion, located beyond the “Beware of Crimson Peak” sign that Edith Cushing sees when she leaves her home in America for the haunted mansion in the English countryside.
“I am a devoted fan of Universal Studios’ ‘Halloween Horror Nights,’ and I am honored to partner with them to create a real-life version of my Gothic Romance, Crimson Peak,” said Guillermo del Toro. “It’s a thrill to work with the movie studio that gave birth to the modern horror movie genre. I can’t wait for movie-goers to enter the haunting world of Crimson Peak as they navigate this haunting maze. I can assure you, I will be first in line to experience the scares of it myself.”
“Guillermo del Toro is a leading visionary in film, and Crimson Peak provides endless opportunities to immerse guests into the terrifying world that he created,” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights. “From the haunting score by Fernando Velázquez to the incredibly detailed set design and scream-inducing ghosts, we will recreate an authentic experience that will have guests feeling as trapped in our ‘Crimson Peak’ maze as the film’s lead character.”
