Hollywood is where the movies are made, making Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights one of the most authentically terrifying Theme Park Haunts in the world. In fact, Lupita Nyong’o, star of Universal Pictures and Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele’s, Us, surprised guests on Saturday, October 26, when the Academy Award® winning actress reprised her role as Red within the popular “Us” maze at Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights.” How’s that for being able to LIVE the horror.

After taking a tour through the maze, and having the time of her life getting scared, the actress donned her character’s recognizable red jumpsuit and fingerless leather gloves as she reenacted her critically-acclaimed role as Red, baiting the many unsuspecting guests entering the infamous classroom scene, artfully recreated from the film….and the results were diabolical.

Tickets are still available for remaining “Halloween Horror Nights” dates: October 30-31 and November 1-3 and can be purchased at Hollywood.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.

The “Us” maze is also part of “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Orlando Resort.
