Universal Studios Hollywood has announced Halloween Horror Night 2012, which runs for 19 nights from Sept. 21 through Oct. 31. The seasonal event features "Scare Zones" and film production-quality mazes unique to today's horror movies.
A highlight of Halloween Horror Nights is the return of La Llorona (the Weeping Woman), the Mexican and Latin American legend of a poor young woman who fell in love with a rich nobleman and drowned her children and herself. According to the legend, her spirit roams the earth seeking her children. The 500-year-old legend will comes to life anew in the maze, “La Llorona: Cazadora de Ninos” (“Weeping Woman: The Child Hunter”).
Additional Halloween Horror Nights attractions will include "The Walking Dead: Dead Inside," based on the AMC television series; “Welcome to Silent Hill,” based on the video games and film franchise; and an encore performance from shock rocker Alice Cooper in a new, 3D maze, "Alice Cooper Goes to Hell 3D."
