"The Thing" is creeping its way into Universal's theme parks in time for Halloween.
The upcoming thriller will be adapted as a maze for the company's Halloween Horror Nights event at both the Hollywood and Orlando parks.
Although both parks feature Horror Nights, they typically don't share the same mazes. But "The Thing" is one of Universal's higher-profile releases this fall, and the studio has been increasingly eyeing the Horror Nights franchise as a way to promote its thrillers that bow around Halloween, considering the crowds it draws each year.
"The Thing" is a reboot of 's 1982 original, in which a group of researchers in an abandoned scientific research facility in Antarctica find themselves infected by an alien creature that can transform itself into an exact replica of any living being.

La Llorona: Villa De Almas Perdidas imagined by Diego Luna Location: Shrek 4D extended queue Code Name: Soap Opera http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/46859/exclusive-concept-art-halloween-horror-nights-la-llorona-villa-de-almas-perdidas-maze
La Llorona, the fearful story of melancholy and murder that has terrified Mexican and Latin American children for generations, is coming to life at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood with its new terror-filled maze La Llorona: Villa De Almas Perdidas, with the help of Mexican-based film star Diego Luna serving as a creative consultant!
The new maze will tell the haunting story of “La Llorona,” doomed to wander the earth forever after drowning her children in a desperate attempt to win a lost love. She then drowns herself when this attempt to win her lost love fails. According to the legend, La Llorona’s dreadful, wailing cries—“My children! Where are my children?”—can be heard eternally piercing the night. La Llorona’s frail, drenched body lurking throughout the dead of night will invariably elicit unwavering dread from the helpless village inhabitants or maze guests as her presence signifies impending death.
Luna is especially excited for this maze because he grew up with the story of La Llorona. He said, “Story-telling is at the heart of all my work and I’m thrilled to have the chance to help present the great La Llorona legend in a different kind of medium at the Halloween Horror Nights event.” Diego Luna began his acting career before age 12 and came to international attention with his performance in the award-winning film, Y Tu Mamá También. Since then, he has shown tremendous versatility as an actor, writer, producer and director. He was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild award for his role in Universal Picture’s critically-acclaimed, award-winning film Milk, served as executive producer of the gritty and much-praised drama Sin Nombre, and recently won Mexico’s prestigious Silver Ariel Award for co-writing the movie Abel, which he also directed. Diego Luna is currently filming Elysium, starring opposite Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. He’ll soon be seen opposite Will Ferrell in the comedy, Casa De Mi Padre, and in the thriller, Contraband, opposite Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale.

"Terror Tram: SCREAM FOR YOUR LIFE"
New "Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life" Experience at Universal... -- UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
"Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life," based on the latest installment of Wes Craven's "Scream" film series, will unleash the iconic "Ghostface Killer" on the world-famous backlot during Halloween Horror Nights® at Universal Studios Hollywood(SM).
Mirroring the "Scream 4" film concept of a "movie-within-a-movie" theme, the "Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life" experience will introduce guests to the fictional "Stab" slasher film franchise and beckon them to visit the production of "Stab 8," currently "shooting on location on the backlot."The fantasy world of the movie collides with reality when aboard "Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life" guests are transported through Universal's famed backlot—-the heart of the world's most famous horror moviemaking studio—and find themselves being stalked by one of the most dangerous slashers in horror history: Ghostface. "Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life" casts guests as victims in this living horror film and elevates the "Halloween Horror Nights" experience to astounding new levels of blood-curdling realism.
"Today Universal announced 4 new horror films are shooting on the backlot, including “Stab 8” the latest sequel in the popular film series. Eager to capitalize on this publicity bonanza, the theme park has started letting tourists on the Universal Studio Tour visit the production. With thousands of tourists rolling past the set every day, pretty much anyone with a cell phone has been given access to the production. A barrage of unauthorized photos & unsettling rumors about the troubled production have been lighting up blogs & chat rooms across the web. The most damaging of these leaks is a homemade video purporting to show “Ghostface” attacking and killing tourists on the Universal tram! No one seems to know whether these videos are a clever viral publicity stunt or the real deal. Despite all the negative press, USH is still moving forward w/ plans to host “Stab-a-Thon,” a Stab movie fan fest on the Universal backlot. "Stab-a-Thon" will take place during the theme park’s popular seasonal event Halloween Horror Nights."
Stab 8 is one of FOUR Horror movies filming on the Universal backlot....more to come....
