Universal Studios is planning to announce at Comic-Con today that AMC’s The Walking Dead and the video game Silent Hill that spawned a movie franshise will be two of the featured themed attractions at the 2012 Halloween Horror Nights events. The Silent Hill attraction will mark the first time Universal has chosen a video game as the source intellectual property for one of its horror attractions — and it will promote the release of the next installment of the video game Silent Hill: Book Of Memories as well as the release of Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, which hits theaters October 26 via Open Road.

Halloween Horror Nights is a monthlong event every year at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Orlando — they work with the best in the biz to create entertaining, horrifying Halloween experiences that are wildly popular. The seasonal events feature a series of themed creepy haunted mazes. In the past, themes have included horror movie staples like Scream, The Thing, Saw, Friday The 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare On Elm Street and Hostel.
