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,Resident Evil: Escape from Raccoon City, An American Werewolf in London, Cabin in the Woods, and Urban Legends: La Llorona. The Evil Dead house at Halloween Horror Nights 23 is based off of the 2013 remake of Evil Dead. Click the list to the left to see scenes from Evil Dead.
Fun Fact: The average blood use in a house is normally about 7 gallons. Universal Orlando used nearly 15 gallons of blood in Evil Dead. It is also considered one of the “bloodiest” films in history.
Other haunted houses you might see during the Unmasking the Horror Tour are: Cabin in the Woods, An American Werewolf in London, Resident Evil: Escape from Raccoon City, Urban Legends: La Llorona, and The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven.

The floor trap is a scene from the movie. The actor that is in the floor trap is actually on a live microphone, so you will be hearing more than just pre-recorded sounds – it’s actually that actor talking to you.
The Psych wall is the first thing you see when you enter Evil Dead. This wall is commonly used in shooting commercials and movies because of the seamless look that it provides. Universal has implemented it into the house by projecting images onto it.
Pages from the book of evil
The facade for Evil Dead is actually pretty cool – it features pages from the book of evil from the movie. It all starts with the book of evil and the pages get bigger and bigger before you enter Evil Dead.
Universal Orlando likes to re-use props (this is a big money saver for them). One of the items in the house that was re-used is some of these cards with the Rio logo on them. These were originally used in Penn & Teller Newk’d Las Vegas (HHN 22).
