After previously announcing that AMC’s The Walking Dead would return for its third straight year at Halloween Horror Nights (the first brand of any sort to accomplish that feat,) Universal added Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn series to the list of 8 haunted houses that will make up HHN 24.
Many know the From Dusk Till Dawn brand thanks to the original 1996 film which was directed by Robert Rodriguez, written by Quentin Tarantino, and featured George Clooney in his first major movie lead role. From Dusk Till Dawn went on to have two straight-to-video sequels (the second of which stars Robert Patrick, who played the T-1000 character in Terminator 2) and has recently been revived into a television show on the El Rey network.
The haunted maze at HHN 24 will be based on the From Dusk Till Dawn television show, featuring characters and locations from the first season’s 10 episode run.
Both the original From Dusk Till Dawn movie and the television show are centered around the villainous Gecko brothers. On the run from the FBI and the Texas Rangers, the Geko brothers find themselves in a strip club that is not what it seems. With a unique and interesting take on the vampire genre, Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn features over-the-top gore and stylized action that will fit in well with Universal’s signature Halloween event.
Halloween Horror Nights is on selected nights from Sept 19 – Nov 1 at Universal Studios Florida. For more information check out HalloweenHorrorNights.com
The first season of From Dusk Till Dawn will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on Sept 16th.
