Universal Orlando features a tour during Halloween Horror Nights called the Unmasking the Horror Tour. One of the cool aspects behind this tour is that you get a look at the inside of three different haunted houses with the lights on. I took that tour over the weekend and I’d like to share a few tidbits of information about each house that I went through.
I previously made a post showing some photos from inside The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven and Resident Evil: Escape from Raccoon City. This house in particular shows some of my favorite scenes from An American Werewolf in London as well as some “easter eggs” for fans of the event and movie to find. The house literally immerses you right into the movie! Click the list to the left to see some photos from the house.
Other haunted houses you might see during the Unmasking the Horror Tour are: Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead, Resident Evil: Escape from Raccoon City, Urban Legends: La Llorona, and The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven.

King Kong Tribute
This King Kong Tribute was originally used in the street experience during Halloween Horror Nights 22. There were several others that were used in HHN 22 and have also made their way into An American Werewolf in London.
Like the King Kong Tribute, there is also a Jaws Tribute within An American Werewolf in London. This tombstone was originally used in the street experience of Halloween Horror Nights 22.
The Transformation Scene
I wanted to share this because I really liked how Universal portrayed this scene of the movie. As you can see, scareactor-free, there is just half a wolf body on the floor. What you don’t see when the house is a live set is that there is a scareactor that is half-way under the floor that has pedals to control the wolf giving it that realistic look.
“See You Next Wednesday”
See You Next Wednesday is another film that was produced by John Landis (who also produced An American Werewolf in London). There are 3 references to this film in the house, plus they are playing scenes from the film on a movie screen (blurred out of course). Landis likes to reference this movie in just about all of his films, so it was appropriate to reference it here in the house.
Every single house has a Raven inside it this year. I’m not sure why a Raven and what it’s for, but this is the Raven inside An American Werewolf in London, located in the final room of the house (along with the Tardis).
