We remember reading Russell Lee’s True Singapore Ghost Stories and constantly speculating if they were real. While they sounded far out, they were also highly possible – cue chills and sleepless nights. Speculate no further as this year, Halloween Horror Nights 5 is bringing Russell Lee’s stories to life as the headlining horror house of the annual Universal Studios Singapore event. There’s a ghost of a chance you’ll walk home with peace of mind with these sets that bring to life the horror tales that reside closest to home. The event will span 14 nights and feature four haunted houses and three scare zones. Here’s what you can look forward to:
True Singapore Ghost Stories: The MRT – Inspired by tales of paranormal activity on the train and in collaboration with Russell Lee, this train takes you on a ride on the dark side. Have fun but please mind the Pontianak.
Siloso Gateway Block 50 – In this epidemic-striken HDB Block, infected residents may just peel the flesh from your bones if you turn the wrong corner.
Hell House – Something’s lurking below us – would you like to know what it is? Paper dolls are waiting for you in the Underworld.
Tunnel People – There’s no time to be afraid of the dark you as feel your way through the fortress of Tunnel people, the event’s premiere dark house. You’ll never know what’s grabbing your leg – human or not.
Hungry Ghosts (The Lost World zone) – Discover a village of people cursed to repeat the same rites and prayers continuously.
conTERMINATED (Sting Alley) – Abandoned and infected inhabitants struggle for survival in a quarantined sector.
The Invaders (New York zone) – A meteor-like alien space probe has crashed into Eartha and its extra-terrestrial passengers are invading earth.
