Halloween Horror Nights.

Though we're still months from Halloween, Universal has announced some new additions to Halloween Horror Nights. Crimson Peak: Maze of Madness, based on the upcoming Guillermo del Toro film, will take attendees through the ghostly, decaying remains of a Victorian labyrinth. Elsewhere, guests can journey through the world of Insidious, confront Halloween's Michael Myers and outrun walkers from The Walking Dead. You'll also find some unexpected Halloween twists, particularly on the Terror Tram through the backlot and with the introduction of a 3-D maze based on the apocalyptic comedy This is the End.

More so than the city's other haunted attractions—even those at big tourist parks—the one at Universal Studios feels a bit over-branded. Many of its mazes are based on franchises, such as AMC's The Walking DeadThe Purge and Alien vs. Predator. They do make for some pretty fun walk-throughs, but there's something about that level of corporate partnership that just ceases to be scary.
