Halloween Horror Nights Wiki

"The cool October winds send a shiver down the spine.

Jack, Clown Prince of Halloween, grins maniacally from the center of a giant Ferris wheel, beckoning you into his Carnival of Carnage.

Once inside, you realize all is not right: curiosity becomes panic becomes fear becomes physical and psychological terror."

"And, of course, every carnival needs a clown. And when it comes to clowns, there is only one that is maniacal and twisted enough to be Ringmaster for the Carnival of Carnage. That would be Jack."

"Finger knives will slice, Machetes will dice, and chainsaws never play nice... when the Carnival comes to town."

Notable Characters

Notable Characters[]

  • Jack the Ringmaster- Formerly a member of Dr. Oddfellow’s traveling carnival, he was revived many times to help bring fear to Universal. Now that he has killed his betraying master and stole his cane of souls, he now leads the Carnival of Carnage where he brought his own Sideshows.
  • Freddy Krueger- Like Jack, he was a killer who particularly preyed on children, even after he was burned alive by angry parents. The Ringmaster recruited him to as a sideshow for his Carnival. He is now helped by the disaster called Sleepwell, which was supposed to protect people from his bad dreams but instead inflicted a state where they experience dreams even when they’re awake.
