You better believe evil has been reawakened in this haunted house, considering it’s based on the Blumhouse film that doesn’t even hit theaters until mid-October! If you want to live the film before you even see it, this nightmare fuel is definitely for you.

Here’s Universal Studios’ description,

Angela. Katherine. Two missing girls have been found with no memory of what happened to them. But wherever they went, the ultimate evil has returned with them. Witness a chilling chain of events as you enter the most terrifying scenes from the new Blumhouse film.

Universal Orlando has outdone itself with this house idea! Based on a video game series of the same name, the concept hit mainstream popularity after HBO serialized it starring Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey. Look at that detailed makeup and those prosthetics! I mean, yuck…!

Here’s Universal Studios’ description,

You and your squad will encounter the haunting and overgrown world of Naughty Dog’s video game in a brand-new, terrifying way, as you make your way through an abandoned Pittsburgh. Join Joel and Ellie, and don’t make a sound if you want to survive Clickers, Hunters and more. No matter what, keep finding something to fight for.

Based on season 4 of the hit Netflix series starring Millie Bobby Brown and Sadie Sink, this horror-filled house is straight out of your television screen. Vecna is so real-looking I might bring a pair of headphones blasting Whitney Houston, just in case…

Here’s Universal Studios’ description,

You must band together with your squad if you want to resist Vecna’s gruesome curse. Take on the scariest season of Stranger Things yet. Like Eleven, now’s your chance to stop him once and for all as you have the ultimate showdown in Vecna’s blood-red mindscape. Every ending has a beginning.

No Matter Who You Choose, You Lose…Two warlocks of great power were turned into dragons after trying to take Merlyn’s spell book. Now, you and your friends are caught in their epic battle. You must choose a path and a victor.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
