This is the second time that the Chiodo brothers’ cult horror film is present at the Los Angeles attraction, having previously appeared during the 2019 event amid their many haunted “mazes”. You can check out the new Killer Clowns-themed ad for Halloween Horror Nights below, as well as new details on this year’s version of the maze based on the film.
Universal’s official website describes this year’s killer clown attraction as follows: “If ever there’s a reason people are afraid of clowns, it’s this. Killer Clowns have descended from Outer Space. And the joke’s on you. Your Scream Squad finally ends up as the gooey, out of this world Clown Snacks in a Cotton Candy Cocoon. These killer clowns won’t make you laugh with laughter — just scream.”

Fans of the 1988 horror film have often longed for a sequel, and one was made almost a few years back. “There was a deal… MGM controls the rights… and they went to SYFY,” director Stephen Chiodo previously shared slasher radio podcast. “they did critters, and you see how that turned out. but they wanted to clowns like two million [dollars], And we don’t want to do that… We did it in the 80s for two million. That’s why we didn’t want to do that. And even MGM didn’t want to do that… They said it was a more valuable asset than signing for that little money.”
Since then, MGM and all of its assets have been bought by Amazon. Maybe it could only be a matter of time before the streamer does something with Jump, Shorty, and Rudy, right?
