Last night at midnight, Universal Orlando announced the theme for the first of its haunted houses for Halloween Horror Nights 2013 – it'll be based on Cabin in the Woods, the 2012 horror film co-written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard. The satire/dark humor movie follows five friends who take a trip to a remote cabin and end up as part of a ritual sacrifice. According to Universal Orlando:
At Halloween Horror Nights 23, guests will step inside the menacing cabin from the movie and fend off a malicious family of zombies. Just like in the film, guests will flee from the cabin and enter a hidden facility where a secret operative is plotting their sacrificial demise. Suddenly, a menagerie of bloodthirsty monsters is released – and they’re in the middle of all-out chaos. “‘The Cabin in the Woods’ took the horror film genre and turned it on its head, and it’s a perfect fit for Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights,” said Michael Aiello of Universal Orlando’s Entertainment Team. “We’re collaborating with LIONSGATE and Drew Goddard to bring the iconic monsters from the film to our event. Guests will be assaulted by terrifying beasts taken right from the big screen – including the Hell Lord, the Dollfaces, the vicious Sugarplum Fairy, the Doctors and more.”
