Slash (Guns N’ Roses) has produced and composed an original score for a new “Halloween Horror Nights” maze at Universal Studios Hollywood. The maze is based on the original “Universal Monsters,” including Dracula, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, etc. and fans will have a chance to check it out when “Halloween Horror Nights” returns on September 14.
“As a fan of horror movies and of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’, I jumped at the chance to once again collaborate with Universal Studios Hollywood to produce what might be interpreted as a soundtrack for the maze. Similar to the way music affects a film, I wanted to compose a score for the legions of infamous characters featured in the maze to elicit a greater sense of terror for the guests. In the end, the goal is to ultimately make the guests feel as if they are playing an integral role in a classic Monster movie.”
John Murdy, creative director at Universal Studios Hollywood and executive producer of “Halloween Horror Nights”, added:
“This maze is the ultimate melding of two of history’s greatest icons — classic monsters and the top guitar player of all time. Slash’s intuitive understanding of the characters’ struggles brings enormous depth to the maze to epitomize a living-movie experience for our guests.
This is the second time we’ve had the great fortune to collaborate with Slash on a ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ maze, and it is a distinct honor to bring his expertise to the event where guests can enjoy a truly exclusive opportunity.”
