What is your horror movie dream? Mine is that I go to bed in my own home, but wake up in the Overlook Hotel. Oh no! (I do know that I am going to wake up in some nightmare scenario, so it isn’t a huge surprise. Let’s say it was something like a Groupon that I bought for Halloween.) For a while I think that no one is in the hotel with me, only elevators full of blood. “Ugh, aren’t there any elevators NOT full of blood?!” I’ll wonder. (There won’t be.) Then I find the bar and the ghost bartender is there and he gives me a cup full of whiskey. “Oh, can I get literally anything else? This is gross,” I’ll say. And then Jack Nicholson will pop out — ahhhhh! — and hit me with an axe! The End. So that’s my dream, but if your horror movie dream is about Cabin in the Woods, you’re in luck! From Zap2It:
Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 23 is getting a very exciting new horror maze for its 2013 celebrations. The Florida theme park has teamed with director Drew Goddard to create a maze based on his 2012 horror film “The Cabin in the Woods.”
“We are building the cabin completely. You’re going to walk through a forest to get there. You’re going into the cabin. You’re going to go into the cube cells. We’re literally taking everything we can in the film and giving you a kind of best-of montage of the film with this kind of linking story,” Universal Orlando Entertainment Team member Michael Aiello tells Zap2it. “You’re going to be in the control room when merman attacks.”
A new storyline that parallels the one in “Cabin in the Woods” will be introduced in the Halloween maze. The idea initially presented to Goddard was that guests will take on the role of a newly hired person in the Facility. Videos in the queue and within the maze will explain the mythology of “Cabin in the Woods” and the idea of the film’s sacrifices and gods, and then guests will experience the events of the movie — including some of the sacrifices — in real time from a different perspective.
I know this sounds like a nightmare, but I also want to do it fairly badly! Although if you have to walk through an ACTUAL forest and there are bugs and spiders involved, I might have to rethink. What about you? Nightmare or no? Please vote in our poll after the jump to voice you opinion about whether or not this Cabin in the Woods maze at Universal Orlando sounds like a nightmare.
