The Shining is coming to this year's Halloween Horror Nights!

Nice! I don't know if you guys know this about me or not, but I live in Florida. Yes, poor me, let's move on. That said, we try to keep the horror spirit alive and well down here with such things as Spooky Empire's Weekend of Horror and Universal Studios' annual Halloween Horror Nights.

And this year, Halloween Horror Nights just got a lot more badass with the recent announcement that the event will be hosting, for the first time ever, a new haunted maze inspired by THE SHINING!

The new maze will be hitting Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort this September. Before you run off and buy your tickets to this year's event asap, take a look at the special announcement teaser below!

THE SHINING Halloween Horror Nights rundown via Universal:

"The Shining" maze at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights will provide guests with a unique opportunity to relive some of the film's most iconic, and sinister, moments.  While venturing through the eerie Overlook Hotel, guests will be thrust into the hotel's tragic history of murder and madness, bearing witness to caretaker Jack Torrance's spiraling descent into insanity.  Nightmarish visions will come to life in this macabre maze, overwhelming guests with the "shine" of the murderous, ghostly entities that lurk around every turn – all while trying to escape the wrath of Jack Torrance as he violently succumbs to the hotel's paranormal forces.

The Shining has been regarded as "a masterpiece of modern horror" by critics and fans alike.  Directed by Stanley Kubrick, the film's enormous influence on pop culture has been captured throughout a multitude of films, television shows, music and more since its disturbing debut in 1980.

The streets of each coast's event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing "scare-actors" lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.
