A page on the Halloween Horror Nights website (www.halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando) says "the new haunted house will bring you face to face with 'The Thing,' a creature that has the ability to turn itself into an exact replica of any living being."
Universal Orlando says its house "will feature elaborately designed and disturbingly real alien creatures and sets." It has partnered with the film's producers, Marc Abraham and Eric Newman ("Dawn of the Dead") of Strike Entertainment for an authentic feel. The house's sets, score and creatures will be based on the film.
Halloween Horror Nights runs for 25 select nights between Sept. 23 and Oct. 31.
