Hollywood attraction ropes in another property
Mad scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Rocky Horror and other famous Rocky Horror Picture Show characters will be part of the Halloween Horror Nights line-up at Universal Studios Hollywood this year as “Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute,” is featured as part of the Halloween Horror Nights event which begins a 16-night run on October 2.
The tribute will bring the musical mayhem of the classic horror spoof to life on-screen and on-stage with live performers singing and dancing in the celebrated, outrageous “Rocky Horror” costumes. The tribute will be interactive, featuring audience participation and guest involvement.
Larry Kurzweil, President and Chief Operating Officer, Universal Studios Hollywood said: “Bringing film experiences to life is the essence of what we do at Universal Studios Hollywood and this classically edgy movie and its passionate following are a perfect fit for this year’s ground-breaking Halloween Horror Nights event.”
The entire Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios Hollywood has been re-designed for 2009. “Halloween Horror Nights” will feature four all-new mazes, a new “Terror Tram” backlot studio experience as well as terrifying new “Scare Zones.” New attractions will include a “live” maze experience based on the Saw film franchise, per an agreement among Universal Studios Theme Parks, Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures.
