Halloween Horror Nights: Haunted Tales Podcast

Halloween Horror Nights Haunted Tales — Dead Man’s Pier: Winter’s Wake

Get in the mood for Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights with the first entry of a special audio anthology series made for narrative tales inspired by HHN’s original mazes. In this installment of Haunted Tales you’ll discover a little more about what specters to expect at the Dead Man’s Pier Winter’s Wake house, as we’re introduced to Sofia and her enchanted violin which she “loathes to love” as its music lures spirits from the sea. We love this idea and can see this spinning off to create more podcast stories about other original characters, like the Storyteller and Jack the Clown, within the company’s universe of monsters.

Lil’ Boo We Love You

Lil’ Boo We Love You

In case you didn’t already know, Horror Nights Orlando has its own little cult mascot in the form of this little gourd of anxiety. Lil’ Boo sprung into internet fame upon his debut at the event a few years ago as a non-descript Jack-O-Lantern that captured hearts and inspired art and memes. Created by Emory Alvarado (@Emory_Arts on Twitter), this spooky darling is now official canon with merch you can find at HHN and through his creator’s artist page.

All Hail the Halloween King Danny Elfman!

All Hail the Halloween King Danny Elfman!

The legendary composer, musical voice of Jack Skellington, and rock soloist is bringing his Coachella set (read our review here) back with a new bag of surprises for a Halloween set of shows spanning his career at the Hollywood Bowl. Danny Elfman will perform his greatest hits from the movies, Oingo Boingo classics, and some new solo stuff for the experimental concert experience with a full orchestra and rock band. Hopefully his Jack Skellington medley will feature Billie Eilish reprising her turn as Sally, which she did the last time The Nightmare Before Christmas was performed live during Halloween.
