With an entire set of events based on recent horror and monster flicks it’s hard to pass them up, tickets are already on sale so get them while you can.
When horror inspired sidewalks aren’t enough, it’s time to call in the Zombie himself. The 2010 event gets new life with House of 1000 Corpses in 3D ZombieVision for those who attend, for those looking to get fright on the go, Captain Spaulding’s Museum of Monsters and Madmen will also be available on the map.
New mazes and traps await those who join the festivities this year, the Halloween Horror Nights Film Competition will show off the winning entries to the masses. For those unsure about attending, the rest of the park will remain active to provide alternative thrills if shock and horror are too much at times.

We’re coming up on the Fall in just a few months, with limited time available Universal Studios and Rob Zombie are taking submissions for Halloween Horror Nights 2010. Offering short films of the year a chance to be judged and shown on Chiller TV, Syfy.com and a feature at Halloween Horror Nights with $1000 cash prize and tickets for two.
Entries start today through August 14, with limits ranging from 90 seconds to three minutes it should raise quite a challenge for directors to deliver that horror punch in such a short span. Announced criteria will include storytelling, skill, originality and the degree of scare (no pressure everyone). The top 10 will also take a spot on the Halloween Horror Nights website from September 3 – 17 for public voting after Universal and Rob Zombie have fielded out their best picks.
As details are non-existent on the official site I’ll throw down the entry information as well.
