Last Friday Universal Studios premiered its Halloween Horror Nights which will run from 7pm to 1am on weekends and the occasional weeknight. It is a special after-dark event that requires separate tickets than the daytime entry. The regular rides and attractions, including The Simpsons Ride will remain open. Check out the schedule here.

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood is all-new this year with four new terrifying mazes, six new “Scare Zones,” a production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute,” an all-new “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure,” the flesh-eating zombies from "Shaun of the Dead" and an entirely new “Saw-themed Terror Tram”.

Halloween Horror Nights kicked off with the annual Eyegore Awards Friday. This year's honorees included Rob Zombie, Tobin Bell, who plays "Jigsaw" in "Saw" and Noah Segan for his performance in “Deadgirl” Rick Baker, who recently worked on “The Wolfman,” was honored with the “Jack Pierce - Lifetime Achievement Award.” The event was hosted by Corey Feldman, because, seriously, what could be scarier?
