Evil Dead joining Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

So far the only project announced for Universal Studios' annual Halloween Horror Nights was for The Cabin in the Woods. Now we have some news that there will also be a haunted maze for Evil Dead. Naturally it will be based off the 2013 reboot directed by Fede Alvarez and will feature, like the film did, an abundance of practical effects.
TouringPlans also insists that there will be new Halloween shows including "Bill and Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure" and a Rocky Horror Picture Show tribute. The shows will likely replace the Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue.

Universal Studios Hollywood creative director John Murdy stated:
"If you’re familiar with what we do with Halloween Horror Nights, we create living horror movies. So we want make our guests feel like they got up from their movie seat, walked through the screen, and now they get to live through the world of Evil Dead. So we’re bringing it to life with movie-quality sets, makeup, costumes and props. It’ll be like living the experience for real"
 Michael Aiello, Universal Orlando's assistant director of creative development, added:
"We’re attacking both these mazes on both coasts as fans of the movie. Taking that movie, taking elements from the film, it’s kind of a chronological retelling of that film for our guests. But it always comes from a place of total fandom about the properties that we use, in this case, Evil Dead being an amazing horror film remake of the classic Evil Dead film series."

Halloween Horror Nights runs at Universal Studios parks in Hollywood, CA and Orlando, FL from September 20th to November 2nd.
