Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights is in full swing. The annual scarefest brings some of the biggest horror films of all time to life in a terrifyingly real way. One of the ways guests can experience their favorite scary movie is through the event’s nine haunted houses. You won’t walk away from any of these without your heart pounding, but here were our favorites:
New to Halloween Horror Nights, The Shining haunted house puts guests smack dab in the middle of the psychological horror at the Overlook Hotel for Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. And yes, that includes the famous elevator scene.
