Halloween Singapore-Style: Halloween Horror Nights 9
Get set for bigger and scarier frights at Halloween Horror Nights 9, the ninth edition of Singapore’s largest and award-winning scare event at Universal Studios Singapore (USS).
Horror fans can look forward to experiencing five terrifying haunted houses, two scare zones and two killer shows at this year’s scarefest.
Taking centre stage this year is Curse of the Naga, an original haunted house from Parkpoom Wongpoom and Gunn Purijitpanya, the brains behind blockbuster Thai horror films Shutter and 4bia.
Fans of Asian horror can investigate the mysterious disappearances of teenagers and expect spine-chilling encounters with their darkest fears – from the Langsuir to the Toyol – in The Chalet Hauntings which features the most extensive collection of Southeast Asian ghosts in a single house. Besides the haunted houses themed after twisted clowns and creepy dolls, there’s also a never-before-seen morbid death metal procession.
• Five Haunted Houses
1. Curse of the Naga
Immerse in Curse of the Naga, an original haunted house by renowned Thai filmmakers Parkpoom Wongpoom and Gunn Purijitpanya of blockbuster Thai horror films Shutter and 4bia. Be transported from the colourful streets of Bangkok to a lost village that is under the spell of the Naga, a snake spirit. Beware the charms of the Serpentine Spirit or you may just be led astray and forced to bear the Curse of the Naga. Check out the elaborate landscape design, stunning special effects and original characters.
2. Twisted Clown University
Step into this abandoned carnival ground and receive a welcome to the Twisted Clown University. Here, remorseless clowns train the next generation of red nosed killers to wreak havoc on an already coulrophobic world. From being forced into death-defying acts to a lesson on manipulating bodies through puppetry, your laughs will quickly dissolve into screams of terror.
3. The Chalet Hauntings
Frightful rumours of a Langsuir sighting. Hushed whispers of a Hantu Raya. Layers of police tape with no explanation. Whatever happened to the five teenagers who mysteriously disappeared from their chalet? It’s time to return to where it all started, and uncover the dark secrets and vengeful ghosts that continue to haunt these cursed grounds. Not for the faint-hearted, this house plays off one’s darkest fears with illusions that will trick the eyes and minds.
4. Hell Block 9
Dark, dirty and damp. This prison doesn’t rehabilitate, it ravages. Every night, prisoners in Hell Block 9 scream in agony and fear as merciless wardens torture them and leave them for dead, guilty or otherwise. Ravaged by death, disease and devastation, this is the very image of hell on Earth. Can you survive long enough to finish your sentence?
5. Spirit Dolls
Legend has it that one night, an entire village was slaughtered by an evil doll that housed a vengeful spirit, only to have their spirits trapped in the life-sized, hand-stitched dolls left behind in the village. Now a macabre tourist attraction, pick up your courage and head into the abandoned village to see the Spirit Dolls for yourself. But why are their eyes following you around? A word of advice: don’t look away.
• Two Scare Zones
1. Dead End
Enter the realm of the Undertaker and alternate dimension that lies between the land of the living and the domain of the dead. Watch as mourners practice macabre and bizarre funeral rites.
2. Death Fest
Join the insane fans as they scream along to their favourite band at Death Fest, the most hardcore music festival of 2019. Stay alert and keep your wits about you while navigating the mosh pits to escape this army of devoted metalheads and savages.
• Two Killer Shows
1. Skin & Bones
The number one comedy show in the Underworld is filming live. Be a part of the studio audience and watch as hosts Skin & Bones bring their offbeat entertainment to the stage, along with some very special guests. It’s going to be hell-arious!
2. Death Fest Procession* and Show
Put the “death” back in death metal as you mosh with frightful freaks and frenzied fanatics at Death Fest.
*On Peak Nights, Death Trap band will lead a morbid metal procession around the park with specially designed floats and electrifying acts, culminating in a hardcore music festival bursting with some of the most visually stunning pyrotechnics.
