TTDILA's Halloween Guide 2022: Haunts

Sept 8 - Oct 31, Select Nights
Universal Studios Hollywood
Check out the new Terror Tram featuring Jordan's Peel's Us and Nope for some fiendish fun.

 Here's the details on what's going down

The madness continues with thrilling haunted house experiences. The full line-up follows:

  • “The Weeknd: After Hours Nightmare” takes guests into the twisted mind of multi award-winning artist The Weeknd as they step into a surreal living nightmare filled with grotesque characters and themes inspired by his music and short films.
  • “Halloween” ventures back to where it all began in an eerily authentic haunted house that depicts the most chilling moments from the critically-acclaimed original film.
  • “The Horrors of Blumhouse” brings to life Blumhouse’s supernatural thriller The Black Phone and horror-comedy Freaky. 
  • “Universal Monsters: Legends Collide” expands on the thrilling legacy from Universal Pictures as the most notorious horror icons, The Wolf Man, Dracula and The Mummy, come together for the first time ever in an epic battle.
  • MGM’s “Killer Klowns from Outer Space” traps guests in a frightening funhouse of murderous clown-like creatures.
  • “La Llorona: The Weeping Woman” features the legend of La Llorona who comes to life to terrorize the living as she mourns the children she murdered.
  • “Scarecrow: The Reaping” finds that Mother Nature’s retribution against the homesteaders for their sins of the past will be carried out by the farmland’s scarecrows who have remained mute witnesses – and are now guardians of destruction for anyone who crosses their path.
  • “Universal Horror Hotel” lives ups to its reputation as the original owner, who was executed years ago for his dastardly deeds, continues to haunt the place today – and guests must escape his vengeful spirit or risk becoming a permanent resident.
  • Award-winning hip-hop dance crew Jabbawockeez brings an all-new, high-energy show nightly to this year’s event, featuring their gravity-defying dance moves, special effects and pulse-pounding music.

All-new scare zones will taunt and torment guests as they navigate the darkness from one terrifying house to the next:

  • “El Pueblo del Terror” is an extension of “La Llorona: The Weeping Woman” as the horror continues once guests exit the haunted house and discover there is no escaping the frightening legend along with other supernatural characters from Latin America’s most frightening myths.
  • “Sideshow Slaughterhouse” turns New York Street into a battle zone as the performers and workers from a seedy carnival sideshow are on a murderous rampage.
  • “Clownsawz” features a demonic troop of clowns who band together to terrorize guests with chainsaws as they enter the park.   
September 22 – October 31, Select Nights

Knott’s Scary Farm turns 49. That's scaring people with experience. I think they're gonna go all out for their 50th, but in the mean time there's plenty of new mazes. But Knott's has plenty of old mazes from their huge catalog of scares from over the years to rely on too. Check out their full list of everything to do here.

New Offerings:

Bloodline 1842 (Maze) – Armed with the latest Bellatorian weaponry, you can choose to heed the call to action and embark on a perilous journey with the immortal Daybreakers. Travel through the busy city streets of Valdonia while hunting the bloodthirsty Valhymphri in an all-out war. Bring light into the darkness, survive the vicious onslaught of vampires, and bring honor to your order!

The Grimoire (Maze) – Turn the page and enter the world of an ancient relic whose dark stories exist purely to turn your greatest nightmares into a reality. Enter the world of a mysterious spell book and escape the demonic creatures inside or be eternally trapped within!

Beyond the Fog: A behind-the-scenes tour of Knott’s Scary Farm

Behind the scenes of Knott's Scary Farm, an army of talented builders and creators work hard to make California's original and most haunting Halloween event a success. For the first time, you can pull back the veil for a Lights On, Frights Off Tour. Join us for a 3-hour behind-the-scenes look at Knott's Scary Farm where you’ll learn the history of Scary Farm and take part in a walking tour of multiple Knott's Scary Farm mazes with the lights on! Grab your walking shoes for a one-of-a-kind opportunity to go Beyond the Fog.

Le Magnifique Carnaval du Grotesque (Show) – Calico Mine Stage

Step right up and walk into the mystique and darkness of the malevolent Le Magnifique Carnaval Du Grotesque. This reimagined show features a collection of death-defying feats and dangerous carnival acts to delight your darkest desires and fill your senses with terror.

Conjurers: Dark Magic (Show) – Bird Cage Theater The fog in Calico is thick. The screams of the denizens of the night echo all around. The only safe place to take refuge is in The Bird Cage Theatre with this newest evolution of the Conjurers magic show. You know the place, right next to the Undertaker. It seems that with death no longer the end, the Undertaker has nearly been run out of business. Fortunately, in all his dealings with death and the afterlife, he's got a few tricks up his sleeve. Tricks will come in handy as he crosses over to the other side to show our still-living guests what he's learned.
Sept 15-Nov 20, Select Nights 
Phillips Mansion
2640 Pomona Blvd, Pomona, CA 91768 
General admission tickets start at $89.99, while VIP tickets start at $124.99
Delusion almost ranks as our highest choice of haunts to check out...even if it's technically taking place in the out lands of Pomona.

Delusionals will play the role of Deprogrammers; those meant to help rescue people from the influence of cults. During the 1970’s there was an influx of cults popping around the United States such as Children of God and The Manson Family. Since the disappearance of Esther Phillips over twenty years ago, a cult known as The Hollows was born. Fanatics from around the world have come to her estate, driven by rumors of a gift beyond this life, if only they would die on her grounds. Playing upon this phenomenon, Delusion will swallow its guests into its most disturbing interactive play to date where they will uncover the truth behind The Hollows.

Starts Friday, September 23rd! Open select nights through Halloween
4730 Crystal Springs Drive, Los Angeles CA 90027
General admission tickets start at $39.99

This iconic LA family has opened their doors once again to friends and fans, just in time for Halloween.Tragedy has struck the Willows household, and guests are invited “home” to celebrate the life of a dearly departed friend. Drinks flow and dinner is served, but the night quickly takes a bizarre turn. It seems as though sinister forces are at work inside the house - and within the family. The maid insists she saw a dark figure stalking the home - was it a prowler, a spirit, or a figment of her imagination? The family’s friendly facade begins to crumble, and, soon, guests are taken on a twisted, fully interactive thrill-ride where they aren’t just witnessing a story unfold: they’re living it. 
This updated iteration of The Willows features new faces, new twisted scenes, more chances for intimate one-on-one time with the family, and, of course, more scares and surprises for spookiest time of year.

"They're here!" A typical family in a quiet suburb of a normal California faces a frightening ordeal when its home is invaded by a Poltergeist. Late one night, 10-year-old Carol Anne Freeling (Heather O'Rourke) hears a voice coming from inside the television set ... At first, the spirits that invade the Freelings' home seem like playful children. But then they turn angry. And when Carol Anne is pulled from this world into another, Steve and Diane Freeling (Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams) turn to an exorcist (Zelda Rubinstein) in this horror classic from director Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre films) and producer and screenwriter Steven Spielberg.

This 40th anniversary event includes exclusive insights from Turner Classic Movies.

35mm can be beautiful, but 16mm is personal. It’s the weird magical object in your parents’ attic, the sacred feeling thing that you might find at a garage sale – it’s being inducted into a secret society, an older neighbour giving you a joint. It’s the middle child after 8mm, the messy kid brother chuckling to themselves. It’s the most mustachioed of the film formats, if you’re still hanging along with this dumb metaphor. This six-feature marathon of straight-up horror havoc comes from the archives of Secret Sixteen: L.A.’s sickest hand-picked collection of this portable, wondrous film format. Join Secret Sixteen founder Mike Williamson, Josh Miller (Friday Night Frights) and Bret Berg (Museum of Home Video) for a 12-hour blast of creature-feature comforts.  These sickos decided that we needed to go even harder than our marathon last year by busting open their trove of Halloween spooks and scares that lovingly hearkens back to some dingy bong basement memory. Titles aren’t revealed until they unspool onscreen — Get ready to squirm at savage vermin, screwed-up scientists, gooey gutterballs, post-nuke bogeys, swampy ogres and demented deities!

Million Dollar Theater 307 South Broadway Los Angeles, CA 90013

Classic and cult horror films back in theaters with the Secret Movie Club. They've got both Blobs, Mike Mignola & more.

The interesting thing here is that artist Hideyuki Kikuchi always felt the original 1985 Vampire Hunter D (made exclusively for the then-just exploding home video market for teens and college students) was made on the cheap and actively championed for a kind of re-do with Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.

First up, the Resistance sets up residence in our huge back room, asks for suggestions, and
will improv a hilarious horror movie, live, based on your suggestions at the beginning.

Then after a 20 minute intermission, we move into the main theater where we run a 35mm print of 1980 Italian schlock horror jaw dropper Patrick Still Lives about a boy who comes out of a coma after a car accident and uses his newly found psychic powers to brutally kill folks.

The Resistance have their work cut out for them as they try to make a scene of a flying fire poker sexually assaulting and then killing a character (the actor complained the director always loved to film such scenes in the winter when everything was really cold) into something...acceptable?

Double Door

Inspired by a New York legend, this grand guignol melodrama showcases Broadway actress Mary Morris in her only film role as the demented matriarch of the fabulously wealthy Van Brett family. Victoria will stop at nothing, not even murder, to maintain authority and promote her avarice. Morris convincingly plays a personality decades beyond her physical age of 39, and an evil older than time.


In the Halperin brothers’ artful follow-up to White Zombie, Carole Lombard plays a grieving young heiress preyed upon by spiritualists and spirits. During a phony séance, the genuine ghost of an executed murderess takes possession of her body, the better to reach the man who betrayed her, the fake medium. Perhaps the most unusual aspect of Supernatural is its depiction of characters who laugh in the face of death, a risus sardonicus that occurs three times in the course of the story before its apotheosis at the climax.

 During the transition to sound production, Hollywood studios faced a dilemma: How to export English-language films to lucrative non-English speaking foreign markets. It was easy enough during the silent era—just swap out the title cards—but the spoken word presented a unique challenge. Some studios, such as Universal, chose to make multiple versions of the same film featuring the same story told with different actors speaking their native languages. The most famous example of this approach is the Spanish-language version of Dracula in 1931, not only because it survives intact after being thought lost for decades, but also because it arguably rivals—some would say exceeds—the artistry of its counterpart.
