But this time, we’re dropping you in the middle of Paris in 1982,” writes Patrick Braillard, a show director with Universal Creative on the official Universal Orlando blog. “The city of lights has gone dark as chaos spreads, unchecked.

Travis Clark, provided by Published 4:04 pm, Wednesday, April 25, 2018 Blumhouse The first footage for this year's "Halloween" sequel premiered at CinemaCon on Wednesday, and those who saw it were terrified. Online reaction to the footage indicates that the film — which ignores all other sequels — is a worthy, and incredibly scary, follow-up to the original. Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode in the film, which comes to theaters October 19. The classic "Halloween" slasher series returns in October, and if the online reaction to the film's first footage is any indication, there's no doubt it will frighten audiences. The silent killer Michael Myers will once again go after Laurie Strode — the babysitter he tormented in the 1978 original film played by Jamie Lee Curtis — in this direct sequel to the original. Set 40 years after, the new "Halloween" ignores all the other sequels (meaning Myers is not Strode's brother). The first … [Read more...] about People are already terrified by the first footage from the long-awaited ‘Halloween’ sequel

Over the past two years, the culinary team has been reinvigorated by the return of the park’s Food & Wine Festival and various other seasonally themed events such as Festive Foods Marketplace and Summer of Heroes. Each entertainment overlay, Disney-speak for a limited-run re-theming of a specific land or the entire park, has come with a barrage of creative foods. This year, the park is firing on all cylinders again for a long overdue Halloween transformation. Since Disney California Adventure (DCA) opened in early 2001, the park has never been “all in” when it comes to the spooky holiday. Most of the Halloween festivities have centered around Disneyland. Prior to the introduction of Buena Vista Street and Cars Land, the park held a Candy Corn Acres festival in the now … [Read more...] about The 10 best creepy treats at Halloween-themed Disney California Adventure
"Halloween" and "Friday the 13th" are both terrifying horror franchises based on spooky holidays. The original "Halloween" movie was released in 1978 and paved the way for future slasher horror movies. Michael Myers instantly became a terrifying horror movie icon. But "Friday the 13th" was such a hit that the series produced a string of cult classic sequels in the '80s, featuring killing machine Jason Voorhees. Which horror franchise is more iconic? PERSPECTIVES Below is the synopsis of the original "Halloween," per IMDB. Fifteen years after murdering his sister on Halloween night 1963, Michael Myers escapes from a mental hospital and returns to the small town of Haddonfield to kill again. "Halloween" paved the way for future slasher horror films, cementing the formulaic standards for the sub-genre.
