However, it looks like a recent screening of the iconic Monster Horror Makeup Show didn’t exactly go to plan.

*Please note that the post below contains spoilers*

In a recent Reddit threada Universal Orlando guest shared a not-so-normal experience while enjoying the Monster Horror Makeup Show.

“It happened as usual: cutting off the spectator’s arm, the child ‘throws something at the curtain’, etc. All the while they were hinting at a finale with the thing behind the curtain, like always, but then they said they ran out of time. Then the actors left,” User U/OkayOpenTheGame said.

The guest said that at first they thought it was part of the show, but quickly learned that something didn’t go as planned.

“At first I thought it was part of the act so the monster could jump up and scare everyone. But no, the show legitimately ended out of nowhere. As I was leaving, I could even hear the actors say “Well, that’s never happened before”.

For those unaware, the Monster Horror Makeup Show is Universal Studios Florida’s longest-running show. If you’ve been in comedy over the years, you’re probably familiar with the routine.

As the show’s hosts joke with the audience and share fun facts about the development of Classic Universal Monsters, they continue to hint at the secret behind the curtain. When revealed at the end, it’s a giant werewolf named “Eddie” who comes to life and hilariously attacks the show’s hosts before a final round of applause from the audience.

Since that didn’t happen, however, it seems like the cast legitimately went on too long and had to cut the show short. Or, potentially, a mechanism in the series had malfunctioned. Whatever the case, the members of the Universal team are sure to make sure the issue is resolved and the iconic show has its grand finale as it should be.
