"She waits for you behind the mirror. She aches to hear you whisper her name. And before you know it, her cold breath is on your face and her icy hands reach out to pull you into her world."

"Chanting her name lures you through the mirror. A mesmerizing, swirling portal guides you through each world. You explore – nervous of what you might find, unsure of where Mary is taking you. Your own heartbeat quickens, but you can’t seem to draw yourself away from the spinning vortex. Did something just blink at you?"

Halloween Horror Nights: Reflections of Fear was the 18th annual Halloween Horror Nights event at the Universal Orlando Resort. Held for 23 nights from September 26 to November 1, 2008, it included eight haunted mazes and six scarezones, was the largest Halloween Horror Nights up to that point, and held the second or third IP icon (although this case was a bit different from The Cryptkeeper).

Universal's creative team introduced the event and its icon Bloody Mary on the Halloween Horror Nights website in July, and expanded its backstory up to and during the run of the event. With Bloody Mary as icon, fears, fairy tales, and urban legends formed the overarching theme of the event. With a press release on August 28, Universal revealed the names and descriptions of the mazes. Visible construction could be seen starting in August, and major scarezone construction began in early September. Although there was no elaborate opening show featuring Bloody Mary, the media event excluded, she made a number of appearances throughout the event.

The Event

The story started with an individual known as Mary Agana. Opening a facility in which she would perform experiments on fear, this would later spiral into a series of events in which she became a ruler of evil legends, Bloody Mary.

The theme of the event itself was that guests would step into The Mirror and enter a world that contained the twisted, disturbing, yet artistic visions of the violent Bloody Mary. With the exception of the shows, everything in the event was either tied into the Legend of Bloody Mary, or took place in a realm of the Mirror (Fears, Tales, Urban Legends, Nightmares, and Myths).


Every one of this year's haunted housed and scarezones was linked to Bloody Mary and her patients. Bloody Mary makes a brief appearance in every house, like an Easter egg.
