Gallery: Inside the "Silent Hill" House at Universal Halloween Horror Nights

Complex: Did you always plan to include both Pyramid Head and the Bogeyman?

Braillard: That's the great thing about doing a maze with multiple rooms, is that you get to have your cake and eat it, too. You get to say, "Okay, I'm going to take something like Pyramid Head, that is extremely well recognizable, if not—I won't say the face of the franchise, but he's definitely recognized worldwide to being a part of the Silent Hill franchise. And then you get to take a character that is one of our favorites, who is going to place an immediate threat on our guests. I mean, and that's what we're all about. We're about scaring our guests. That's what we're in the business of. So it's really fun to be able to do that.

Whether or not they were [both] in the mix to begin with, I'm not exactly sure. Because when you work on conceiving an event like this, if you know where an idea came from, if you know who spoke up during the meeting, you know it's a bad collaboration. Everybody needs to be talking over each other and everybody needs to be yelling at each other and figuring it out. And [the Bogeyman] I know was a point of contention because we wanted say, okay, we need somebody who the true fans are going to know, but somebody who's still going to be scary enough to carry on inside our maze. And I think we accomplished that.
