The Walking Dead cast at Halloween Horror Nights

Halloween is almost here, and with that came the season premiere of The Walking Dead! For the premiere, the cast took a trip to Halloween Horror Nights and experienced the maze for themselves. Stars Steven Yeun, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Norman Reedus certainly had quite the scare.

The winner and a guest will be invited to attend their design unveiling at the red carpet opening night in Hollywood.

Knowing the amazing work that goes into monster design from previous Halloween Horror Nights, I can without doubt say that I would not at all be able to enter this content.

Cast of ‘The Walking Dead’ hit Halloween Horror Nights

Some well-known faces that were spotted enjoying the terror of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood this past weekend.

First up, we had the cast of AMC’s hit TV series “The Walking Dead” –including stars Lauren Cohan (“Maggie”), Norman Reedus (“Daryl”) and “ Chandler Riggs (“Carl”) and joined by The Walking Dead’s Executive Producer Greg Nicotero—having yet another close encounter with the undead walkers in Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights maze, “The Walking Dead: Dead Inside.”

Next, we have photos of Kat Von D, Tommy Lee, DeadMau5, the Oakland Raiders, and rapper Tyga having a rather frightening moment with a group of undead friends during HHN.

‘Silent Hill’ Will Become a Haunted Maze at Nation’s Best Halloween Events

In advance of this year’s highly anticipated Halloween Horror Nights, Universal Studios Hollywood is proud to present a brand new haunted maze based on the popular horror video game and motion picture franchise, Silent Hill!

Universal will be bringing to life the twisted multiverse and horrific plot of Konami’s hit series—including the iconic deformed nurses and the executioner—in order to bring fans one of the most intense psychological horror situations in Halloween Horror Nights 20-year history. The maze also celebrates the upcoming release of the latest installment of the hit franchise, “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D,” which will be released nationwide on October 26—just in time for Halloween!

Konami’s ground-breaking Silent Hill series is heralded for its psychologically-charged, horrific plot, which is centered around the disturbing, ash-covered town of Silent Hill – a place where reality gives way to other dimensions. In this demonic world the physical laws of nature no longer apply and nightmarish monsters abound. Characters try to escape back to the safety of reality but constant brutal attacks by disjointed, knife-wielding beings make survival seem impossible.

Silent Hill has sold more than seven million video game copies worldwide, earning more than $100 million at the box office with the first film, “Silent Hill,” and spawning a hit comic book series and graphic novels.

The highly-anticipated sequel to the original film, “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D” from producer Samuel Hadida and his company Davis Films will be released nationwide on October 26 – just in time for Halloween – by Open Road Films. The film is directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch), and features original cast members Sean Bean (HBO’s Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings) and Deborah Kara Unger (The Game, 88 minutes, The Samaritan) return in SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D, starring along with rising stars Adelaide Clemens (X-Men Origins, upcoming The Great Gatsby, No One Lives) and Kit Harington (HBO’s Game Of Thrones) as well as Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix, Disturbia, NBC’s Chuck) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, The Artist).
