Horrorwood Die-In was one of the six scarezones that were featured during Halloween Horror Nights: Ripped from the Silver Screen. It was located outside of Mel's Drive-In.
History and Location[edit | edit source]
In 2009, Universal decided to have a scarezone based on creatures from a variety of different horror movies. Like The Skoolhouse from the year before, Horrorwood Die-In would build a giant structure, this time being a giant drive-in movie screen. It would also share part of its name with the very first scarezone at Halloween Horror Nights, Horrorwood.
The scarezone would be located outside of the Mel's Drive-In restaurant. The restaurant was themed to a 1950's drive-in. All of the scarezones located in this area would be located where the Mel's Drive-In Stage is usually built.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Hollywood Drive-in has been closed for years and some say the abandoned grounds are haunted, where late at night the dim flickering images of carnage and chaos, monsters and madmen leave the screen and enter the real world looking for fresh victims to star in their latest horrors.
Experience[edit | edit source]
There was a large drive-in screen in the area, which showed clips from various horror films as well as a sneak preview into The Wolfman.
Multiple scareactors would roam around and attack guests including: Norman Bates from Psycho, Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist, the Man in the Mask, Pin-Up Girl, and Dollface from The Strangers, Pighead from SAW, a zombified Tony Montana from Scarface, The Thing from The Thing, and Kurt Barlow from Salem's Lot.
