This year's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood resurrects some beloved horror movie icons: Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Leatherface. Among the familiar faces, though, are some brand-new tricks and treats on the Universal Studios backlot. Guests can experience the demonic possession of young Regan MacNeil inside The Exorcist maze. Fans of the hit FX series American Horror Story have the chance to get up close and personal with Twisty the Clown. The Christmas Krampus brings the holidays early to Southern California. Visitors can take a ride on the new Terror Tram, presented by horror mastermind Eli Roth, which drives you out to the backlot only to abandon you in the middle of a group of demented killer clowns.

Halloween Horror Nights runs through Nov. 5. Advanced ticket purchase is recommended, as event nights sell out. Tickets can be purchased here.
