A lot of things have changed this year, but some traditions carry on in ways we least expect. What fall experience would be complete without a few Halloween screams? In honor of this upcoming spooky season, Universal Studios Orlando is bringing us a safe take on their typical Halloween Horror nights experience. Starting now through Nov. 1, all guests at Universal Studios Orlando are invited to participate in two brand new mazes that are incorporated into the park—Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Lives and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy. The Bride of Frankenstein is stepping out of the shadows to claim vengeance for her fallen partner while a darker version of the Tooth Fairy is on the prowl to steal your teeth—by force! If this wasn't scary enough and you need more visuals, tune into this chilling sneak preview recently released on Monday, Oct. 19.
These frightful mazes are included with your daily admission into the park and guaranteed to scare the living daylights out of you. Introduced to the Universal Orlando lot in 1991, Fright Nights—now called Halloween Horror Nights—revolutionized the scare game with three nights of terror and one main haunted house. Since then, this iconic evening tradition has expanded to four total locations across three different countries and more than 32 frightening nights of fun. So, it's no wonder it's attracted some of Hollywood's top talent to test their strength and get in on their fair share of screams. Celebrate Halloween early by taking a look back at our favorite celebrity moments from Halloween Horror Nights! From Ariana Grande to Tyler Posey, Hollywood loves a visit to Universal's spooky theme park.
Musicians such as Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, DJ and producer Diplo, singers Bebe Rexha, Dua Lipa, Iggy Azalea and rapper Kendrick Lamar as well as sports figures like Lakers player Lonzo Ball and fighter Chuck Liddell and actors including Jamie Foxx, Adam DeVine, Abigail Breslin, Mandy Moore and Ashley Tisdale, all like to stop and pose for a quick photo with the horrifying creatures lurking within the theme park when they pop by for a visit.

Just in time for Halloween, a creepy celebrity poll has caught our attention. Casey Anthony, the Florida woman acquitted of first-degree murder charges in the death of her child, ranks No. 2 under shock rocker Marilyn Manson in the survey, conducted by E-Poll Market Research. The poll ranks the Top 10 Creepiest Celebrites, but we know there are more than just 10. So, if you could assemble the creepiest celebrities to participate in a remake of Michael Jackson’s video Thriller, who would they be? Manson was No. 1 with an overall creep factor of 76 percent and a popularity rating of just nine percent, meaning that more than three-quarters of people responding to e-Poll found him creepy and only nine percent found him appealing. He was followed by Jackson with 67 percent creepy/14 percent appeal, and third was Simpson who was recently convicted of robbery and kidnapping charges in Las Vegas. He had a 59 percent creepy/three percent appeal rating. There are two kinds of creepy in Hollywood celebrity, explained e-Poll’s chief executive Gerry Philpott. There are the kind -- like the three above -- from whom some people might run and then there are types like horror novelist Stephen King, whom many people find fascinating precisely because they are spooky. King made the list at No. 4 with a creep factor of 51 percent but strong fan appeal of 61 percent. Who would you rather have a beer with: Stephen King or Andy Dick?, said Philpott to illustrate his point. He was, of course, referring to comedian Dick who recently pleaded guilty to battery in California for pulling down a teenage girl’s top in a sports bar. Dick, 42, was No. 6 on the list with a creep factor of 44 and an appeal rating of just 17. He was preceded in the No. 5 spot by radio shock jock Howard Stern with a creepiness rating of 45 and popular appeal of just 13. Some celebrities, such as Manson, make a name for themselves outside mainstream pop culture, so it’s okay to be creepy, said Philpott. Then there are others, like director Woody Allen, who would probably prefer people don’t think of them as creeps. He made the list at No. 16.
