Halloween Horror Nights will be back for its ninth edition at Universal Studios Singapore (USS) from Sept. 27 to Oct. 31, 2019.
Visitors can look forward to the following across 16 event nights:
- Five haunted houses
- Two scare zones
- Two killer shows
- A halloween carnival
Directors of Shutter and 4bia involved
Most notably, the directors of acclaimed Thai horror movies Shutter and 4bia have come together with Singapore's creative teams to create one of the haunted houses, Curse of the Naga.
Guests will have to navigate a lost Thai village under the spell of the Naga, which is a snake spirit.
The story line is made compelling with "elaborate landscape design, stunning special effects, and original characters".
If you'd like to learn more about the haunted house, you can go for a daytime, behind-the-scenes guided tour.
This will cost a daytime admission ticket (from S$75) and a fee on top of it.
Here's a peek at their make-up process:

Clowns, dolls, and chalet hauntings
Another haunted house, The Chalet Hauntings, allows Singaporeans to experience the paranormal stories of their teenage years.
The house will also feature an extensive collection of Southeast Asian ghosts.
The next two houses (Twisted Clown University and Spirit Dolls) are themed after clowns and dolls, while the last plays on visitors' claustrophobia to recreate a cramped and grimy prison.
The two scare zones this year are Dead End and Death Fest.
Dead End allows visitors to explore "the realm of the Undertaker and alternate dimension that lies between the land of the living and the domain of the dead", while going to Death Fest lets you attend the "most hardcore" music festival of 2019.
Lastly, Hollywood Lagoon is where the Halloween Carnival is held and games are available with prizes to be won, although we imagine the charges for this will be quite scary.
Early bird tickets till Sept. 1
From now till Sept. 1, early bird tickets will go for S$55 (non-peak nights) and S$65 (peak nights).
Otherwise, regular tickets are available at S$60 for non-peak nights and S$70 for peak nights.
