Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood is known for its spine-tingling experiences, and this year’s highlight is the Stranger Things haunted house, which has consistently impressed fans since its debut in 2018. The event’s creative director, John Murdy, recently shared some intriguing details about what visitors can expect and how Netflix was taken aback by their meticulous craftsmanship.
The Stranger Things haunted house for 2023 focuses on the show’s fourth season, plunging guests into the dark narrative surrounding Vecna. Murdy revealed that the chilling journey begins inside Eddie’s trailer, where visitors will encounter the contorted Chrissy, a character who has suffered at the hands of Vecna. The attention to detail in crafting Chrissy was so astonishing that Netflix questioned whether Halloween Horror Nights had used a 3D model as a reference.
This haunted house builds upon the success of previous Stranger Things experiences, which brought to life the first three seasons of the show. Season 4 introduced audiences to the gruesome transformation of Chrissy, a pivotal moment that sets Eddie and his friends on a quest to confront Vecna.
