DEATH Mall – Halloween Horror Nights 7

Escape from the malicious spirits trapped in the DEATH Mall haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights 7.

SPOILER WARNING

Photos of DEATH Mall, a haunted house attraction at USS Halloween Horror Nights 7, are featured here to showcase its design and atmosphere. This is also a page for haunt fans to share their thoughts.

Photography and video recording is not permitted inside any Haunted Houses at Universal Studios Singapore during Halloween Horror Nights.


Overview and Thoughts

Haunted houses built within Soundstage 28 are usually highly produced, and DEATH Mall is no exception. The moment guests step inside, the mall’s imposing facade welcomes them in, while the heavy environment effects engulf them. The scenes inside are full of good tricks that work well with the scare actors’ performance to misdirect and catch guests off guard.

Beyond the scares and production values however, some parts of experience didn’t feel as well-integrated as the other 4 houses this year. The Sinister character, and her ‘Sin’, Malice, is apparently the result of the disaster, and not the cause. The victims don’t have the ghostly look and seem to have strange injuries unrelated to the collapse. Much of the mall structure is still intact, as mostly the second floor ceiling fell. There is a lack of “crush” damage in most of the scenes. Of course, the creative team would have to balance between crafting realistic disaster, and an attraction that works for the massive crowds of HHN7.

A lights-on walkthrough of this haunted house is included in the Behind the Screams Tour programme, which allows fans to slowly enjoy the easily-missed details in the scenes. I have excluded images of Malice in this photo tour – good luck when you meet her in DEATH Mall…

Your visit to Southpoint Mall’s grand opening starts from its car park. Not a good sign to see that mortuary van.

Going through the back of the store, you’ll need to go past rows of mannequins – pray that they don’t move.

Escaping from the mannequins, you end up in Cold & Fresh.

It’s very cold here, but not sure about the fresh.

One Response to DEATH Mall – Halloween Horror Nights 7

    So far this is the best haunted house among the 5, can’t agree of that it is really highly produced and just look at the production design, it make us feel real in our real life, closely to our living, best local theme haunted house. The best part will be the last scene – In the cinema meeting the mascot character – Malice, from screen to unexpected jump scare at the corner, it’s really awesome scare. Why I say this is the best one, because comparing to other, mascot characters usually appear in the beginning part of the haunted house, when you see it at the first place, there’s no more anticipation at the behind. So, when step into the Death Mall, we keep wandering where’s the hell of this Malice, the mascot character, where and which part, just like we can’t wait to reach the climax of the story. Then we ended up walking from supermarket to hell cinema and finally meet Malice at the end, may we all “rest in peace”. Good planning for the walk through and storyline for this haunted house.
