To get the ball rolling, assigning of roles and costume fitting for over 400 scare actors will have to be completed in a limited spam of time. During the fitting, scare actors were being briefed on the storyboard of their horror zones to aid them in preparing and getting into the character of their role.
Preparation for this year’s Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Horror Nights 2 begun right after last year’s inaugural Halloween Horror Nights. With five scare zones and three haunted houses each covering a specific portion of the storyboard, it is not just plain horror for Halloween Horror Nights 2, expect a lot more mental trauma & fear.
Let’s make this a perfect birthday celebration for the one you love… see video below:

On this night, over 400 scare actors, directors, producers & crews from the Class of Halloween Horror Nights 2 gathered at the Pantages Hollywood Theater in Universal Studios Singapore for a debrief on the overall concepts and storyline for Halloween Horror Nights 2. As the details were being presented, you could see the adrenaline rushing through everyone in the theater, excited and eager to get on location to check out their designated horror zones for the first time.
Upon reaching my set, Total Lockdown, on New York Street, I was impressed with the set. The once beautiful and swanky street has turned into a Bio Hazard zone with vehicle wreckage filling the street, where pure mayhem will unfold. *Spoilers not included, somethings are better when you experience it yourself.
Scare Acting 101
BOO is LAME. You have to be in-character making everyone believe that you are your character. Catch your victims off guard. Avoid physical contact with your victims. Scare them and move away.
With all these rules, props, make up and the number of practice runs every scare actor has to go through, you can expect only the highest quality of scares you can find in Asia.

After many days of drills and practice, we are ready to don into our costumes & outfit for first time after they went through a “HORRIFYING” process. In our Total Lockdown cast holding room, we are sharing room with the cast from Dungeon of Damnation. This is the first time I meet the Undertaker from Dungeon of Damnation in full costume… I AM FREAKING IMPRESSED!!! For a moment I thought he was the real thing and standing at 1.9 metres tall, he did freaked out some of the girls.
Though the guidance from our director and producer, everyday is a learning curve for us newbie scare actors. Starting without costume and makeup, we learn how be in character and started scaring any USS staffs that happened to walk pass our zone to improve our scaring techniques and maintaining our role all the time. If you can’t convince yourself, you can’t convince others. That’s why we have so many nights of practice and lessons before the show begins on 19 October 2012.
With the help of Nike+ Sports GPS watch, I tracked that I’ve covered 5.71 km through my shift as an scare actor. 5.71 km!!! I’m only covering one zone and it’s not even opening night, that’s how much sweat we need to shed as scare actors.

It was full dress rehearsal for USS Team and Media preview for Halloween Horror Nights 2. FINALLY!!! We had big crowds coming in for us to give them some BIG SCARES! Before the gates opened for the guests to enter the park, we had to undergo a “HORRIFICATION” makeup process… Check out this video on my transformation:
