Clowns with chainsaws. Evil alien invaders. Murderous civilians on the loose. The most terrifying time of the year is almost upon us at Universal Studios.

Today, Universal released details on the five "scare zones" that guests can look forward to at Halloween Horror Nights 27.

This year's scare zones will be known as the "Festival of the Deadliest," which will include content from the films Trick 'r Treat, and The Purge. Other zones include an alien area called Invasion!, and Altars of Horror, which will include a mish-mash of characters found in the nine mazes.

  • Trick 'r Treat will showcase all things Halloween. Sam, the demonic pumpkin-headed rule-keeper, will punish whoever disrespects the traditions.  
  • The Purge returns murder and chaos to the streets of Universal Studios, and the clean-up crews will be on scene with their wood-chippers.
  • Altars of Horror will greet guests with the horror film characters that are getting their own houses at this year's HHN. These include Jigsaw, deadites from the Evil Dead, the freaks and murderers from American Horror Story, and terrors from The Shining.
  • Invasion! Guests will encounter alien invaders set on destroying Earth and learning all they can about humans in grisly science experiments.
This year's live show will be "Academy of Villains: Afterlife," where performers will take guests to see the horrors of the land of the dead.

Halloween Horror Nights will run from Friday, Sept. 15, through Saturday, Nov. 4, and tickets are available at
