SPOILER WARNING

Photos of Pontianak, a haunted house attraction at USS Halloween Horror Nights 8, 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

Starring the region’s most iconic ghost, Pontianak brings us through a harrowing journey through a Malay village to witness this ghost’s origins and the various ‘conditions’ that would cause her to manifest. Many have agreed that this is the scariest house this year, for various reasons. There have been several rumours about actual hauntings at this attraction, witnessed by the cast, crew and even park guests.

Well, the Jurassic Park site where this house is built at is notorious for reports of unexplained events, and for some reason this venue has been home for mazes with supernatural themes – I mean, they even dared to try a ‘taboo’ concept like Hell House (2015) here.

As an iconic ghost of the region, the Pontianak is a staple character that has appeared in Singapore’s past horror nights: Old Changi Hospital (house), True Singapore Ghost Stories: The MRT (house), MATI Camp (house) and Forbidden Forest (zone).

While the park has billed this house as the ‘scariest’, it is also one of the more immersive houses, with great attention to detail in the kampung home interiors – so much that you feel like you’ve stepped into an authentic film set. Also adding to the scares are a handful of highly-effective stunts that can make some people lose their mind, heart, soul, or all at the same time. Apart from seeing apparitions of Pontianak in every room, the highlight of this maze is the very unsettling trek through the jungle-like banana plantation, where over 8 terrifying Pontianaks can be encountered within seconds.

Once you step out of the sheltered queue area, the Pontianak experience begins. There is suddenly a lingering scent of jasmine, otherworldly cries, and chilly sensations…

You ignore these unsettling signs… and continue walking until you reach the outskirts of a village.

In the house, a woman suffers from a miscarriage. Carrying her baby, she screams endlessly, while an elderly woman berates her fate.

The back of the house opens into an eerie graveyard. An elderly man, who looks like a bomoh (shaman), seems to be casting a spell.
