DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Nightfall will bring terror to Downtown Los Angeles next month, when all crime will become legal for 12 horrific hours, and only the strong will survive.

OK, everyone will survive and it’s only pretend crime that’ll be legal, but there still should be horror aplenty when Blumhouse Productions once again takes over the Variety Arts Center.

Last year the company run by producer Jason Blum (the Paranormal Activity series, Insidious and Sinister) took over the historic building just north of L.A. Live and turned in into a haunted house. They are coming back Sept. 27-Nov. 3, and this time the story is based on Blum’s summer film The Purge.

The storyline for the haunted house, dubbed The Purge: Fear The Night, will place visitor at the annual convention of the New Founding Fathers, the governing party of a future America where all crime is legal once a year for 12 hours. But not everyone believes in the purge, as visitors to the 89-year-old Downtown theater will find out.

Admission for the event is $65 and the length of the tour is up to each attendee, but it is expected that people will take up to two-and-a-half hours to go through the building, according to Blumhouse officials.

“We had such a fantastic response last year, and we wanted to build on what we learned and take it to the next level,” Blum said in a statement. “This experience goes way beyond theater or movies or even haunted houses — it is a full night of entertainment that lets people explore all six floors of this incredible building on their own, and suffer the potentially terrifying consequences of their decisions.”

The event is for ages 18 and over.
