PRE-911 (Alternate): EDDIE

For 19 nights, Universal Studios brings your worst nightmares to life with Halloween Horror Nights XI.

You’ll encounter the world’s most terrifying haunted houses, live shows that will have you screaming for more and scare zones.

Experience the terror of Halloween Horror Nights XI… if you dare!

Halloween Horror Nights XI was a touchy event. Coming so close after the September 11 terrorist attacks on the US, Universal hurried to change the event to reflect and be more accepting to the mood amongst society at that time. Many changes were made, from house titles to the non-existence of blood. One of the most notable changes would be the event’s original icon – Eddie.

Eddie was a chainsaw-wielding, facemask-wearing maniac who had an elaborate backstory. Eddie was subtly replaced by the return of the previous years’ icon Jack the Clown – with taglines such as “Jack’s Back” and “There’s no more clowning around.”

In addition to the icon change, anything graphic or violent was scrapped from the event, displaying no blood or any sort of gore. Names were changed left and right, anything that could be taken remotely offensive in the country’s state of vulnerability was removed in respect.

Some original titles (which may still sound familiar) included “Bloodbath Underground” as what we knew as “Ooze Zone,” modifications included red lighting being changed to green, and blood turning into goop. “Scary Tales” was originally named “Terror Land.” “Nightmare Alley” was originally titled “Slasher Alley,” and the most obvious change would be the Festival of the Dead Parade being renamed as “Nightmares on Parade.” Additionally, the “Deadly D’illusions” show became “Dangerous D’illusions.”
