AS UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HOLLYWOODSM AMPS UP THE FRIGHT FACTOR AT "HALLOWEEN
HORROR NIGHTS," BEGINNING 16-NIGHT RUN ON OCT. 2


Universal City, CA- The twisted landscape of the famous "War of the Worlds"
set-with its authentic airline jumbo jet wreckage, devastated houses and
apocalyptic vistas, will be transformed into "The Containment Zone," an
elaborately themed, zombie-ridden "scare zone," bringing scenes from an
unmade movie to life as part of a "Terror Tram: Live Or Die" experience at
this year's "Halloween Horror Nights event," which begins a 16-night run on
October 2 at Universal Studios Hollywood.

In addition to the new "Terror Tram: Live Or Die" attraction,
"Halloween Horror Nights" will feature four new maze experiences, and six
new "scare zones." The all-new "Halloween Horror Nights" for 2009 will be
the most intense and impactful "live" horror event ever to be presented in a
theme park environment. Tickets are now on sale at
http://www.universalstudioshollywood.com/hhn including limited-time advance
purchase discounts.

New "Halloween Horror Nights" attractions will include "Saw:
Game Over," a "live" maze experience based on the "Saw" film franchise, per
an agreement among Universal Studios Theme Parks, Lionsgate and Twisted
Pictures. The interactive maze, "Halloween: The Life and Crimes of Michael
Myers," will be the first attraction based upon the "Halloween" films to be
created by a U.S. theme park. The "live" multi-sensory horror experience,
"My Bloody Valentine: Be Mine 4 Ever," will be based on the 2009 hit movie.
"Chucky's Funhouse," will be a fresh, flesh-and-blood incarnation of one of
Universal's most iconic horror franchises.

The "Terror Tram: Live Or Die" is all-new for 2009 and, in
addition to "The Containment Zone," features key theming from "Saw," "My
Bloody Valentine, "Psycho" and "Halloween." "Terror Tram: Live or Die"
combines a harrowing tram-ride journey with a terrifying walk through the
sets and specially designed gauntlets created on the studio's historic
backlot.

Also new for 2009 is "The Rocky Horror Picture Show: A
Tribute," bringing the mayhem of the classic horror spoof to life on-screen
and on-stage with live performers singing and dancing in the celebrated,
outrageous "Rocky Horror" costumes, per an agreement between the theme park
and Twentieth Century Fox's Licensing & Merchandising Division.
