  • Holidayz in Hell
  • Owl
  • “The Last of Us”
  • Universal Studios Monsters: Paris
  • “Chucky”

The map also lists “M3GAN” Roaming Horde.

Stranger Things 4

HHN29 Stranger Things 2

“Stranger Things” was featured in houses and mazes at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood in 2018 and 2019. A house based on the series, likely on season four specifically, has been rumored again for this year.

“Stranger Things” season four aired in 2022. Season five, the final season, does not have a release date yet. Season four follows the group as they are separated; with Mike, Will, Jonathan, and El in California, Hopper in Russia, and the rest of the gang in Hawkins. It introduced several new characters, including fan-favorite Eddie Munson, and villain Vecna.

The Exorcist


“The Exorcist” haunted mazes appeared at Universal Studios Hollywood in Halloween Horror Nights 2016 and 2021. A haunted house was part of Halloween Horror Nights 26 at Universal Studios Florida. The rumored house has lost its “Believer” tag but persists on speculation maps.

Holidayz in Hell

Holidayz in Hell was a scare zone at Halloween Horror Nights 2018 and then a maze at Halloween Horror Nights 2019. Here is the 2019 maze’s description:

What is supposed to be a time with friends, family and loved ones, the holidays have quite literally…gone to Hell! The terrors are far from limited to just Halloween. Prepare yourself for a sadistic experience involving a trip through a series of psychotic seasonal celebrations. Your creepy crawl through the year’s calendar is a true 365 day nightmare. After all, in our world…the scarier, the merrier!

Universal Studios Monsters: Paris

There have been many houses featuring the Universal Studios Monsters throughout the past 31 years, and given their place in the hallows-eve halls of horror, their inclusion is not a surprise. This also follows the trend of the past few years. We had Universal Monsters in 2019, Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein in 2020 & 2021, and Universal Monsters: Legends Collide in 2022. A Parisian Monsters house could feature the Phantom of the Opera.

There have been several houses entitled The Horrors of Blumhouse, all featuring multiple properties in each house. Given that Universal has a ten-year deal with Blumhouse for ownership and distribution of movies, the partnership makes (synergistic) sense.

As for the latest iteration of The Horrors of Blumhouse, an official source behind the M3GAN Reddit AMA said, “I can’t wait to go to HHN this year.” This is also still not a confirmation, but it wouldn’t be the first time a collaborating company heavily hinted at their involvement.

“Insidious” was previously rumored with “M3GAN” as part of a Horrors of Blumhouse house.

Evil Dead Rise

“Evil Dead” was previously represented as Evil Dead: Book of the Dead, a haunted maze at Halloween Horror Nights 2016 in Universal Studios Hollywood. Here’s the description:

You’ve come to take shelter in a remote cabin in the woods, but someone has read the words that should never be read aloud from the Book of the Dead. And the demons have been released. You can try to find a way out, or pray for daylight to save you from the evil that rules the night. But it doesn’t matter. One thing is certain… you’re all going to die tonight.

A few years earlier, Evil Dead was a haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights 23 in Universal Orlando Resort:

Relive “The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience” as gruesome Deadites try to possess your soul. There is nowhere to hide as every creaking floorboard and tangled vine is just waiting to pull you down, making you one with the Evil Dead.

Terror Tram: Celebrities

Terror Tram is the recurring Halloween Horror Nights overlay of the Studio Tour Backlot, with a different theme each year. Last year featured Jordan Peele’s “Nope” and “Us.” The speculation maps have switched back and forth between “rappers” and “celebrities” for this Terror Tram.
