Universal Studios Singapore at Resorts World Sentosa unveiled first look images from two key Asian-inspired haunted houses set to raise the horror meter at Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights 9: Curse of the Naga and The Chalet Hauntings. Drawing inspiration from Asian folklore and mythology, both haunted houses feature a combination of elaborate and authentic set designs, stunning special effects and original characters – all of which to immerse guests in eerily-authentic environments. Join us on our HHN9 Haunted Houses Preview to experience firsthand the terrors of the Serpentine Spirit and the Langsuir to the Toyol.
Based on a man-versus-nature narrative, Curse of the Naga breathes life into the collective vision of Thai director duo Parkpoom Wongpoom and Gunn Purijitpanya, and the creative minds from Universal Studios Singapore. Conceptualised since December 2018, this haunted house marks the event’s first-ever regional collaboration in the creation of an original haunted house and promises to raise the horror meter for fans.
Curse of the Naga charts the journey of a foreigner who incurs the wrath of the malevolent Naga spirit and has to find a way to escape her clutches. Unfortunately, the path is paved with obstacles and dramatic environments, from bashing through dense undergrowth to passing through an abandoned village and navigating a labyrinth-filled house. Along the way, guests will come face to face with a plethora of original characters, including the iconic Serpentine Spirit who is covered in snake scales from head to toe and adorned with traditional brass fingernail extensions.
Singaporeans can relive some of their most commonly shared experiences of paranormal sightings when they visit The Chalet Hauntings, presented by Official Partner Traveloka. Guests will put themselves in the shoes of a curious trespasser setting foot into a chalet that is off-limits, investigating the rumour that five teenagers have disappeared into the darkness. The possessed chalet will bring to life the most extensive collection of Southeast Asian iconic ghosts in a single house – a first in the history of Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights.
As brave fans navigate their way through the haunted corridors, dark living rooms and an ominous bathroom, expect to encounter the demonic Toyol, evil Hantu Galah, demented Pocong, beastly Hantu Raya, alongside the bloodthirsty Langsuir – the female terror that attacks her prey with sharp fingernails and rips them to shreds, only stopping after she has quenched her thirst for blood. The haunted house incorporates illusions, animatronics and special effects that will trigger all five senses, raising fears and anxieties and testing one’s limits along the way.
