Halloween Horror Nights Lets you Visit Your Nightmares at Silent Hill Haunted House
Every Halloween, Universal Studios Vacations get even scarier! Silent Hill will have its own haunted house this year at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights. Since its release the series has scared video-gamers and viewers alike, becoming a worldwide sensation for thrill-seekers. It gets major horror points for using a normal person as a main character instead of a cyborg or a person with special powers that gamers can distance themselves from.
Universal Orlando describes the house saying: “In the eerie and desolate town of Silent Hill, ash falls from the sky and the physical laws of nature no longer apply. If you dare to venture into this alternate dimension, there is only one law of nature with which you must concern yourself: survival.”
The Silent Hill video game series (and motion picture) have a recurring theme of an average person being trapped in a strange world searching for a missing loved one. Silent Hill takes place in a fictional self-named location; a foggy rural American town that contains a dark alternate dimension called the “Otherworld”. Characters experience occasional shifts between the real world and the Otherworld during their travels, experiencing what seems like insanity characterized by delusions and encountering elements from their subconscious and innermost thoughts. In reality, Silent Hill has a native power that allows a persons thoughts and subsequent fears and nightmare actually manifest and become real antagonists. Majorly creepy, I know.
To up the ante, the town has a cult officially named “Silent Hill Smile Support Society”, but known commonly as “the Order”.
The Order repeatedly has human sacrifices and drug trading as well as kidnapping and brainwashing children inside a religious facility disguised as an orphanage. Are you ready to step inside?
Insider tip: Halloween Horror Nights truly is terrifying. I have been many times and I must warn that this is a great event for teens with a strong stomach and adults but younger kiddies should be left at home! Officially, Universal Orlando warns that children should be 13 to fully be able to handle the events. Every child is different and some really love horror movies. Think about what your child can handle and please use discretion.
