Exclusive: We walk through Halloween Horror Nights 28! (video)

Like any good monster that refuses to die, the 1980s have come back to life at the 28th Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort.

Featuring 10 houses, the theme park event flashes back 30 years with haunts that take attendees through horror flicks Poltergeist, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, and the 1983-set Netflix series Stranger Things. There is also the B-movie drive-in house Slaughter Sinema, which brings to life schlock movies that never were, such as “Attack of the Swamp Yeti.” Meanwhile, three of the five “scare zones” – Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Revenge of Chucky, and the original concept Vamp ’85: New Year’s Eve – resurrected the decade.

But HHN28 is not without modern-day scares, either. Haunts dedicated to Trick ‘R Treat, and The Horrors of Blumhouse (starring Happy Death Day and The First Purge), join Universal’s original concept houses: Dead Exposure: Patient Zero featuring fast zombies; the mutant plants come alive story Seeds of Extinction; the twisted Scary Tales: Deadly Ever After starring the Wicked Witch of the West; and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre-esque Carnival Graveyard: Rust in Pieces.

In one night dedicated to discovering all the terrors, I went through every house and scare zone to bring you the best look at what jumped out, screamed, chased, and otherwise startled me. My favorite haunts were Poltergeist, Dead Exposure, Slaughter Sinema, and Stranger Things, with The Harvest being the best zone (though Vamp ’85 and Chucky each got notably better on subsequent walkthroughs).

If you want to experience these terrors for yourself, head over to Universal Studios Orlando through November 3rd on select dates (Tickets HERE) or at Universal Studios Hollywood (Tickets HERE)
