Oh, the hor­ror!

Re­turn­ing for its sev­enth year, the Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios Sin­ga­pore’s Hal­loween Hor­ror Nights turns to­day’s con­tem­po­rary fears into a month-long spec­ta­cle of hor­ror.

Esquire (Singapore) - - Man At His Best -

Cru­elty, De­cep­tion, Mal­ice, Ma­nip­u­la­tion, Nar­cis­sism, Perver­sion and Ob­ses­sion are the seven new in­car­na­tions of the famed car­di­nal sins in­ter­preted for to­day’s times. And you will get to ex­pe­ri­ence its man­i­fes­ta­tion in the an­nual scarefest at the Uni­ver­sal Stu­dios Sin­ga­pore’s Hal­loween Hor­ror Nights 7.

With five haunted houses, two scare zones and two new live shows spread across the sprawl­ing theme park, this year’s edi­tion prom­ises to be a test of nerves and wit in all sense of the word.

This year’s edi­tion fea­tures orig­i­nal scares and sto­ry­lines that will cater to lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional fans. Head­lin­ing the haunted houses is the Death Mall where Sin­ga­pore’s most ma­li­cious ghosts roam after the build­ing suf­fered a struc­tural fail­ure. In­ter­ested to find out what goes on in­side the mind of a deeply de­praved force of evil? There’s a place for that too.

Au­di­ences can also ex­pect more scares and chills at two all-new shows: the Lab­o­ra­to­rium and the Slice of Life Tour. As its name sug­gests, the for­mer is filled with mad doc­tors and su­per­hu­mans while the lat­ter is an al­bum launch per­for­mance by new­est pop trio Slit Face Girls that turns into a bloody af­fair.

Mr Ja­son Horkin, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent of At­trac­tions at Re­sorts World Sen­tosa, said: “This year’s theme is among the most dis­turb­ing ones, draw­ing upon seven new in­car­na­tions of deadly sins to re­flect the zeit­geist of to­day’s so­ci­ety where peo­ple are pre­oc­cu­pied with in­di­vid­u­al­ism, beauty and power.”

Win­ning “Best Leisure Event” for the third year run­ning in the 2017 Sin­ga­pore Tourism Awards, this year’s edi­tion also in­cludes the Zom­bie Laser Tag ex­pe­ri­ence (sup­ported by the Sin­ga­pore Tourism Board).

The in­ter­ac­tive night­mare will see teams of four work­ing to­gether to “bring the rain” with laser tag gear on those de­ranged zom­bies. The live-ac­tion zom­bie ex­pe­ri­ence in­cor­po­rates brain­wave tech­nol­ogy to cre­ate an ex­pe­ri­ence like no other. Se­lect par­tic­i­pants will wear head­bands that sense con­cen­tra­tion lev­els to help un­lock clues in their quest.

The things we’d do for a lit­tle jolt out of re­al­ity. Here, you can have it your way ev­ery other bloody week­end.
