The Duffer Brother’s weird world of Hawkins, Indiana is set to come to life in the real world at Halloween Horror Nights at both Orlando, Hollywood and Singapore. The Netflix series which has become a huge hit with audiences around the world will see guests of HHN28 venture forth into the twisted town, venture into the Upside Down and do battle with Demogorgons!
Set in the 1980s, the first season focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy named Will amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl named Eleven with psychokinetic abilities who helps the missing boy’s friends in their own search.
The Duffer Brothers developed the series as a mix of investigative drama alongside supernatural elements with childlike sensibilities, establishing its time frame in the 1980s and creating a homage to pop culture of that decade. Several themes and directorial aspects were inspired and aesthetically informed by the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, and Stephen King, among others, including several films, anime and video games. It will be interesting to see how Universal incorporates these factors into their maze design for the house.
Expect the unexpected and set foot into the Upside Down as this house is set to be a HHN game changer…
