The 2012 Joss Whedon / Drew Goddard horror movie The Cabin in the Woods is the basis for a new maze at Universal Orlando. Rather than a straight recreation of the movie, the maze will feature a new storyline told from the perspective of a worker in the cabin's "facility." Mike Aiello, Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights creative director tells Zap2it that his team is "building the cabin completely. You're going to walk through a forest to get there. You're going into the cabin. You're going into the cube cells."

Aiello envisions the maze as a "kind of best-of montage of the film" linked together with a new take on the story. Many of the movie's monsters will feature in the attraction, including some that were only depicted on screens inside the control room. The maze is being built with Goddard's and Whedon's blessing; Goddard tells Fox News that he's "too excited by it... I'm just so happy that the film has continued to live on." In the interest of not spoiling the movie for those of you that haven't seen it, we won't go into too much detail here, but there's a lot more info on the project available from both Zap2it and Fox News. Halloween Horror Nights 23 begins on September 20th and will run through to November 2nd.
