Halloween Horror Nights Orlando: An Interview With Face Off’s Laura Tyler

Over the weekend, Shock Till You Drop came face-to-face with a collection of oddities featured in “Face Off – In the Flesh,” one of the many scare zones that pepper the streets of Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights Orlando. Attendees walk through this ominous, fog-enshrouded block of the theme park and feast their eyes on various creatures that were featured on SyFy’s hit reality series Face Off.

During a mini-press day at the theme park, I spoke with Face Off season 5 winner Laura Tyler whose history with Universal Studios goes back well over a decade.

The Shape has surfaced in Florida. For the first time, Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights Orlando welcomes Michael Myers for a maze dedicated to John Carpenter’s Halloween.
Much like the attraction that debuted at Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood, the maze culls some of the most iconic, terrifying moments from the 1978 slasher classic and beckons visitors to creep through dark hallways, backyards and living rooms and other recognizable backdrops. They’ll meet Dr. Loomis, Laurie, Annie, Lynda and, of course, Michael Myers along the way, narrowly escaping his butcher knife.

This year has seen more Halloween 3 rumblings than usual. It’s hard to sift through the b.s. but there has been a steady energy signaling that progress is being made and fans are edging closer to seeing Michael Myers return to the big screen.
Shock Till You Drop was the only horror outlet to partake in a small Halloween screening event this afternoon at the AMC located on the Universal CityWalk Orlando.

During a small press conference, Halloween Horror Nights creative director Mike Aiello and current Halloween series producer Malek Akkad (Moustapha Akkad’s son) spoke about the new Halloween-themed maze featured at the theme park.
