Deep in the dead of winter, the stage is set for a centuries old tale of terror. The “half-goat, half-demon” horned creature known as Krampus has emerged to terrorize those lacking the spirit of the holidays. In scenes from the 2015 horror flick, guests will navigate the dysfunctional Engel family’s home where they’ll encounter the evil and ancient spirit of Krampus – known as the dark shadow of Saint Nicholas – and his band of Dark Elves and sinister Gingerbread Men.
Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando Resort are bringing “Krampus” to Halloween Horror Nights (HHN), which opens September 16, 2016. Co-written and directed by Michael Dougherty, “Krampus” is a Christmas-themed horror movie by Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures.
Universal Studios’ HHN is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 25 years, guests from around the world have visited HHN in Hollywood and Orlando to become victims of their own horror film. The streets of each park’s events are transformed into highly themed scare zones where “scare-actors” lunge and lurk from every darkened corner and crevice. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the parks, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series and haunting original stories.
