SLASH to Create Original Score for Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights This Fall

HHN 2014 Clowns 3D image with txtCelebrated Grammy Award-winning musician, SLASH, hailed as one of the 10 best electric guitar players of all time by Time magazine, is joining forces with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose an original score for the theme parks hypnotizing new 3D maze, Clowns 3D Music by SLASH at Halloween Horror Nights, beginning Friday, September 19, 2014.

While partnering with top recording artists has become a signature of Halloween Horror Nights, this collaboration with prolific guitarist, SLASH, marks the first time a musician has created an original maze score for the popular event. This inspired effort comes at a demanding time for SLASH, whose new album World on Fire debuts on September 16, 2014, on the heels of his Let Rock Rule World Tour performing with Aerosmith.

Infused with the rockers hell-raising electric guitar riffs, the ominous new Clowns 3D Music by SLASH haunted attraction is no laughing matter as it unmasks the psychological disorder known as Coulrophobia, a disturbing condition affecting those with an extreme and irrational fear of clowns.

The psychedelic 3D maze will horrify guests, taunting and tempting them with terror and treats as they parade through Sweet Licks Frozen Clown Pops Family Amusement Center, a dilapidated roadside attraction and one-time thriving ice cream factory run by deranged siblings and their mad clown father, Sweet Licks. As this demented trio schemes to restore the family business by luring visitors with free ice cream, guests will soon find themselves on the menu as the key ingredient of a sick new high-protein ice cream concoction.

Im a HUGE fan of Halloween Horror Nights and was inspired to partner with Universal Studios Hollywood because they are the founders of creating extreme horror, said SLASH. Ive been composing music for as long as I can remember and jumped at the chance to be an integral part of this years event and create the original score for this creepy clown maze. I cant wait to see the fans reactions and will be first in line to experience the maze myself.

Halloween Horror Nights 2014 at Universal Studios Hollywood will be More Dead Than Ever, as it brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in the living, breathing, three-dimensional world of the most notorious and terrifying creatures in existence. This years event will feature a slate of all-new unrivaled film production quality mazes, terror-filled scare zones and a fully re-imagined Terror Tram experience, uniquely themed to todays most definitive horror properties, including, The Walking Dead: The End of the Line, based on AMCs critically-acclaimed, Golden Globe-nominated and Emmy Award-winning television series; From Dusk Till Dawn, inspired by Robert Rodriguezs cult film and El Rey networks TV series; Dracula Untold: Reign of Blood, based on Universal Pictures upcoming epic action-adventure; AVP: Alien vs. Predator, based on the Twentieth Century Fox film franchise; An American Werewolf in London, based Universal Pictures Academy Award-winning and genre-defining film, written and directed by John Landis; Face Off: In the Flesh, based on Syfys hit TV series, and The Purge: Anarchy, a new scare zone inspired by Universal Pictures blockbuster thriller.
