A Nightmare on Elm Street: Never Sleep Again!

Freddy Krueger, the iconic undead dream stalker whose burned, disfigured face, tattered green and red sweater and four-bladed glove has been the searing central figure of nine movies, a television series, video games and comics, will provide a cutting edge for Universal Studios Hollywood’s “A Nightmare On Elm Street: Never Sleep Again.”

It is an all-new horror maze experience for the 2010 Halloween Horror Nights event, where the legends of Hollywood horror will come to life, beginning September 24.

“A Nightmare on Elm Street: Never Sleep Again,” will bring guests back on a nightmare journey to the town of Springwood, the scene of Freddy Krueger’s unspeakable crimes, tells Universal.

They’ll wind through the ominously twisting corridors of the Badham Day Care Center, glimpse ghastly scenes of carnage among the young people of Springwood and face the ultimate showdown with Freddy in his infamous boiler room lair.

The new maze is based upon the 2010 motion picture, “A Nightmare on Elm Street” which opened to number one at the box office earlier this year. The Blu-Ray and DVD is set to release on October 5.

The 2010 “Halloween Horror Nights” event at Universal Studios Hollywood will offer spine-chilling new mazes based upon the horror genre’s most compelling characters, according to the company.

Rob Zombie and other top artists are collaborating with Universal Studios Hollywood in the creation of new mazes, “scare zones” and backlot experiences.

The theme park’s favorite thrill-ride attractions will also remain open for “Halloween Horror Nights” as well, many with menacing twists. Favorites include “The Simpsons Ride,” “Revenge of the Mummy – The Ride” and “Jurassic Park In the Dark.”

Updates on “Halloween Horror Nights” will be available at HalloweenHorrorNights.com and also on Twitter and Facebook, as Creative Director John Murdy reveals a running chronicle of exclusive information.

Universal Studios Hollywood released the information Friday, August 20.
