    25 Times I Was Scared Out Of My Mind At Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights

    Every year, Universal Studios transforms the theme park for Halloween Horror Nights. As a diehard horror fan, I was thrilled to attend — and also kind of terrified. I ended up screaming, a lot.

    1. When it was hard to see anything through the fog.

    2. And then the fog cleared and I was like, BRING BACK THE FOG.

    3. When Chucky made an appearance. He's so small, and yet!

    4. When this guy didn't even need a costume to be terrifying. Serving Patrick Bateman realness, y'all.

    5. When I decided to check out the house from Insidious, despite having seen Insidious and knowing better.

    6. When I realized I should probably just turn around. If you see this shit, and you keep going, that's on you.

    7. Things that I didn't think would move started moving. It was incredibly unsettling, and I jumped every time.

    8. And then this happened and I actually died. R.I.P. me.

    9. When CLOWNS.

    11. WHY.

    12. This is actually the worst thing I've ever seen. I'd pay good money to wipe it from my memory.

    13. When I sought haven in this prison from The Walking Dead.

    14. Turns out, there were zombies everywhere. I probably should have paid more attention to the show.

    15. But seriously. Zombies. All over the place.

    16. Some were more active than others.

    17. Also, it was a vegetarian's nightmare.

    18. But Woodbury wasn't much better.

    19. When the government shutdown straight up caused The Purge.

    20. And people responded accordingly.

    21. When I was like, OK, one more maze, and it was the goddamn house from Evil Dead. I make the worst choices.

    22. It was like being in the movie. NOT A MOVIE I WANT TO BE IN, THANKS.

    23. When there were dead cats hanging from the ceiling.

    24. Eventually I reached the film's climax and exhaled. Oh, spoiler alert.

    25. When I realized there wasn't really anything to be afraid of, which meant all my screaming was for nothing. Sometimes I scare myself.
