Are You Ready to Face Your Fears?

This Halloween season, experience the most authentic horror event in Hollywood and prepare to be scared as evil clowns, demon nuns, super villains, possessed dolls and the devil himself come to life at Horror Made Here: A Festival of Frights. Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood (WBSTH) is transforming our iconic backlot into a creepy carnival featuring all new mazes, even more scare zones, live entertainment, an eerie night tour and plenty of horror-themed food and drinks to give guests a night to remember.

IT Knows What Scares You

From New Line Cinema’s 2017 record-breaking film IT, Pennywise returns with a vengeance in this year’s reimagined maze, with even more chills and thrills than ever before. Guests daring enough will have to brave their way through the Neibolt House and remember that “It Knows What Scares You,” as terror awaits with every twist and turn.

Escape from Arkham Asylum

For the first time ever, the infamous Gotham City institution for the criminally insane is constructed on the Warner Bros. backlot, where fans will come face-to-face with the iconic and unhinged characters from WB Games’ Batman: Arkham Asylum. Visitors will be driven to the brink of insanity as they navigate through the gruesome asylum, and those unlucky enough will be sentenced by The Joker™ to be a prisoner for life.

The Conjuring Universe

A host of satanic spirits will surface as guests get a glimpse inside the world of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren from New Line Cinema’s The Conjuring Universe. Fans will fall victim to Annabelle’s devious games and come face-to-face with The Nun, lurking in the dark shadows behind every corner.

Nightmare on Camp Crystal Lake

Campers beware of the deep, dark woods that conceal the ghastly presence of Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, waiting to turn your greatest nightmares into reality. Take a night tour of our iconic backlot with a detour to everyone’s favorite, Camp Crystal Lake. If you survive, you’ll get to explore behind-the-scenes of beloved titles in horror entertainment, including iconic filming locations like New York Street, where the 1953 House of Wax was shot.

The Exorcist: Forbidden Screening

In this 4D experience, guests will enter the safe haven of our backlot church to relive the most terrifying scenes from the 1973 classic The Exorcist, right from the pews.

Fun for Everyone

If courage isn’t your strong suit, don’t sweat it! Horror Made Here will also offer a series of attractions and activities for everyone, including:

  • Stage 48: Script to Scream: Enter the world of Tim Burton and see authentic props and costumes from his iconic movies Sweeney Todd, The Corpse Bride, Mars Attacks! and for the first time ever on display at Warner Bros., original props from the Halloween classic, Beetlejuice.
  • Devil’s Drop Tower: Adventurous visitors will have the opportunity to take the 90-foot plunge into the air for the scream of their life.
  • Horror Makeup Demonstrations: Learn how makeup artists bring terrifying characters to life with our special Horror Made Here SFX makeup demonstrations throughout the night.
  • The Lost Boys Arcade: Play iconic games in the retro Lost Boys-themed arcade. Games include titles like Ms. Pac-Man, Tetris, Mario Bros., Space Invaders and Terminator 2 Pinball.

Let The Games Begin

Additionally, Horror Made Here will feature carnival games, live entertainment, a "Little Shop of Horrors” where guests can purchase Halloween and Horror Made Here merchandise, plus fun food and beverage options, including the goth-punk Fangtasia Bar featured in the HBO series True Blood, serving regular drinks for humans and “Tru-Blood” for vampires.
