Scarecrow, Clown Tent, and More Added Outside Halloween Horror Nights Houses at Universal Studios Hollywood

We’re fast approaching the start of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood on September 8, and more set pieces are visible at the haunted houses under construction.

Curious George Lot

There are two houses currently under construction in the Curious George parking lot. The first is Scarecrow: The Reaping, which was just officially announced. This house will be based on the house of the same name from Halloween Horror Nights 27 at Universal Orlando Resort.

This house has a dilapidated farmhouse façade at the entrance. A pickup truck for Smyth’s Piano Service is parked next to the door.

The scarecrow on the other side of the doorway has been uncovered since our last update. It is made of branches, with a face in shadow beneath a wide-brimmed hat. It has on a black coat.

Piles of hay and branches sit in front of the scarecrow.

Large fake wood logs also sit nearby.

The other house may be inspired by “An American Werewolf in London.”

We can only get a side view, which reveals a white building with a porch and brown fence.


The tent on the backlot behind Transformers has a circus-style awning now. This aligns with the rumor of “Killer Klownz From Outer Space 2.”

Parisian Courtyard

Signs have been added to the construction walls around the house in the Parisian Courtyard of Universal Studios Hollywood.

Behind the walls is a collapsing church tower with three bells. This is the rumored location for La Llorona. The façade is very similar to 2012’s La Llorona: La Cazadora de Niños. It’s unknown if this will be a repeat, sequel, or otherwise.

For comparison, the photo below shows the façade from 2012’s La Llorona.

The signs have a QR code that leads to the Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights landing page.
