Using Halloween Horror Nights and Universal Monsters for your Halloween Inspiration

The Universal Studios monster collection remain a tremendous source of inspiration for Halloween party enthusiasts. The Phantom of the Opera, Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Wolf Man, and others are Halloween icons. In celebration of their enduring popularity, Universal Studios every year hosts ‘Halloween Horror Nights’. If you’re throwing your own Halloween party this year but don’t really know where to begin, we recommend checking into some of the recent Halloween Horror Nights and/or looking at the Universal Monster collection for inspiration.

The horror genre runs year-round worldwide. To this day, so much of the TV, movies, and books released are built around traditional Halloween iconography. In the same way others have, use it! Something like Dracula can be manipulated to suit adult audiences just like it can to a more family-friendly environment. Consider an unexpected spin on a character, or why not incorporate multiple Universal Monster statues throughout your Halloween party – the possibilities are almost endless. Before guests invade your Halloween party, take advantage of popular Halloween icons and take inspiration from some of the best creators of horror of the last century.

Halloween Horror Nights by Universal Studios has been making use of its classic horror monsters for years. Every year, there seems to be a new contemporary twist on Halloween mainstays. An extension of a horror film legacy that can be traced back to the 1920s, Halloween Horror Nights still presents quite the scare to attendees. At its core, Halloween Horror Nights are a great representation of what the holiday is about. It’s made for having fun, taking in the night with friends, and doing things or wearing things that maybe you normally wouldn’t. Paying homage to what’s going on in the culture at the time, reaching back into our childhoods, and enjoying each other’s company are reasons why many adults are willing to put in a lot of effort for Halloween parties. If you’re playing the role of host, the pressure is definitely on! Creatures of the night are readying to come out and play, and it’s up to you to build the playground!
