Stab 8 was never actually made into a full movie but, guests of Halloween Horror Nights in 2011 got treated to a special look at production of Stab 8, with footage produced by Planet C Studios!
Today Universal announced 4 new horror films are shooting on the backlot, including “Stab 8” the latest sequel in the popular film series.
Eager to capitalize on this publicity bonanza, the theme park has started letting tourists on the Universal Studio Tour visit the production. With thousands of tourists rolling past the set every day, pretty much anyone with a cell phone has been given access to the production.
A barrage of unauthorized photos and unsettling rumors about the troubled production have been lighting up blogs and chat rooms across the web. The most damaging of these leaks is a homemade video purporting to show “Ghostface” attacking and killing tourists on the Universal tram! No one seems to know whether these videos are a clever viral publicity stunt or the real deal…
Despite all the negative press, USH is still moving forward with plans to host “Stab-a-thon,” a Stab movie fan fest on the Universal backlot. “Stab-a-Thon” will take place during the theme park’s popular seasonal event Halloween Horror Nights.
