A haunted chalet, death metal festival and more at Halloween Horror Nights 9

The annual scarefest that is Halloween Horror Nights will be returning to its Asian roots this year, after a much-welcome but best not repeated trip to Stranger Things’ Upside Down for its 2018 edition.

On selected nights from Sep 27-Oct 31, Universal Studios Singapore will be transformed for late-night attendees to explore. This year, five haunted houses, two scare zones and two special shows will be put up. The highlight attraction is the Curse of the Naga, an original haunted house where the directors of famed Thai horror films Shutter and 4bia collaborated with USS to build, all with one goal in mind—to scare the shit out of you.

We’re looking forward to another haunted house, The Chalet Hauntings, where the most extensive list of Southeast Asian ghosts inhabit. Discover the truth behind the mysterious disappearance of five teenagers, as illusions that trick your mind and eye keep you on tenterhooks.

There’s also Death Fest, a scare zone that brings a whole new meaning to the death metal genre. Probably the most hardcore music fest you’ll attend, stay alert lest mosh pits turn into hell pits ravaged by metalheads. A special show, the Death Fest Procession takes place here too, where on especially special nights, the Death Trap band will lead a truly morbid metal procession packed with floats and pyrotechnics around the theme park.

Many other frightful experiences await, such as a twisted clown school that will turn your smiles into screams, and a prison where inmates are, quite literally, dying to get out. But we’ll leave you to explore for yourself the many horrors that await this Halloween Horror Nights.

Halloween Horror Nights 9 takes place Sep 27-Oct 31 at Universal Studios Singapore. Tickets from $55.
