◂ The Blood Moon ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - Hollywood Lights

Many lights along Hollywood. This is supposed to be a chill-out zone, right?

The Moon shall join your coalition. The Blood Moon prop has arrived at the park. This is either this year’s icon, or a backdrop for this year’s icon.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Blood Moon Projector

The Blood Moon shall rise with the help of this Christie projector.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Moon Pancake

It looks like a moon from the front, but is actually a giant pancake up close. And what lies behind the dark side of the moon?

The event branding, of course!

◂ The Invaders ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Invaders Scare Zone

According to the official HHN5 website, The Invaders scare zone is about the arrival of a gargantuan extraterrestrial race called the Horde. Using the lunar eclipse (The Blood Moon) as a cover of the eclipse, these sightless aliens have opened a portal to destroy the city.

Anyway, the spaceship/portal has arrived.

And it has made the nearby lampposts all wonky. Pretty cool huh.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Invaders Scare Zone / Spaceship and Lights

Check out that layout of lights for the spaceship. It’ll be dazzling.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Invaders Scare Zone / Giant Boulder

For the more earthbound, a giant boulder has also popped up.

But this will definitely be the thing to watch during HHN.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Invaders Scare Zone / Spaceship bottom view

I can imagine all sorts of #BeamMeUp photos being taken here.

The way things are setup at this end of New York zone hints that we may not see a projection effect on the New York Library facade. Also, it is unlikely for fancy aerial acts to happen here, although a mini show might still happen.


UPDATE 7 SEP

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Invaders Scare Zone / City overview from Sci-Fi

Here’s a view of the scare zone from Sci-Fi City.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Invaders Scare Zone / Sheet Metal Box with LED display

Over the weekend, this ‘Danger’ box, constructed from sheet metal, appeared.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - The Invaders Scare Zone / LED Display

There’s a curious LED display.

But other than that, this piece is quite a mystery – could it be used to store another prop? Or is this a break zone?

◂ ConTERMINATED ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / Outside Quarantine

We have lots of photos from the ConTERMINATED scare zone in this update.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / The Crowded Path

This place is looking more and more like a haunted house.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / The Messy Path

Props being covered up isn’t a good sign for the faint-hearted. (more on that later…)

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / School Furniture by Jing's Revenge

Furniture proudly sponsored by Hua Sin Secondary School. It’s always fun to spot things from past HHN.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / The Bridge 1

The ‘Bridge’ looks messy now, but I don’t think the park is done with this area yet.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / Bedframe with Body 2

It looks like someone something is lying there.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / The Bridge 2

A look back at the ‘Bridge’ section.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / Inside the Alley 3

Garbage and all sorts of random things are strewn all over Sting Alley. We’d rather not step in.

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / View from the Harbour

This area is covered, shielding the other parts of the Lagoon away from the horrors. And oh, talking about covering up – before I forget!

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - ConTERMINATED Scare Zone / Mysterious Tent

Inside this tent are some props that was left open during the day. So yes, we have photos.

Please note that the contents are graphic and may be terrifying.

WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGERY (GORE)

Yes, I still want to see. (Click to expand)

You have been warned.

◂ Chillout zone? ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - Ancient Egypt Chillout zone - 44 Sins to return?

There are three chill-out zones this year. These areas, free from scare actors and unsettling music, are places where guests can sit down or dance to the music. Looks like 44 Sins from the first Halloween Horror Nights might return?

◂ Hungry Ghosts ▸

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - Hungry Ghosts scare zone

Welcome to the Hungry Ghosts scare zone!

Universal Studios Singapore - Halloween Horror Nights 5 Before Dark Day Photo Report 2 - Hungry Ghosts scare zone 2

Potentially the scariest free-roam scare zone* this year, Hungry Ghosts will take place in a village of its own. Something like Forbidden Forest (2013).

*- ConTERMINATED is likely to follow the design of Bogeyman (2014), that is an enclosed, one-way scare zone.

Look at the details of the roof!

Even in the day, the entrance alone is rather moody.

As for the inside, it’s mostly the same as the last update for now. It’s taboo to lift up the black covers, although…

We’d like to report that there are mysterious red boxes.
