Go Behind the Screams

October 27, 2020

Have you ever wondered what goes into the haunted houses you go screaming out of? Take a look behind the scenes of a haunted house at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.

Join Universal Orlando’s Senior Director of Creative Development Mike Aiello, Senior Show Director Charles Gray, and special guest Greg Nicotero (Special Make-Up Effects Supervisor, Executive Producer and director of over 30 episodes of AMC’s The Walking Dead) as they explore a haunted house and reveal all the amazing creativity behind every scream.

You’ll walk through a haunted house and learn some of the tricks the designers employ, from special effects to simple misdirection. You’ll visit the Make-Up Lab where many of the “scareactor” masks are created. And you’ll learn other fascinating facts about the process along the way. It’s a unique peek into what makes Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights The World’s Premier Halloween Event.
