Halloween Horror Nights – Exclusive Slideshow Coverage

A GHASTLY AFFAIR:

One might say that Universal Studios invented the horror film genre. Frankenstein, Wolfman, Dracula, the Mummy and the Creature from the Black Lagoon were all spawned by the twisted minds of Universal’s writers and directors.

Now the studio continues the tradition with Halloween Horror Nights through Saturday at their location in Hollywood.

The theme park has been changed into a land of chain-saw wielding serial killers, psycho nurses, scary clowns (the worst!) and lots and lots of zombies. This year even the back lots have been converted to scenes from the Walking Dead, where “walkers” have taken over the city and mazes where corpses come alive.

Universal is offering substantial discounts to college students on the final Bloody Thirsty Thursday. Tickets can be purchased with student I.D. for $69, about $30 less than the regular price. The Hard Rock Cafe at City Walk is also offering student discounts on food and drinks tomorrow night.
