Watch James Franco Terrify Guests at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Night

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA (KBCWtv) - When it comes to cosplay, you really don't know who it is under a mask. In the case of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios, one can run into a movie star (behind a mask) like James Franco.

Promoting their latest HBO series The Deuce, Franco and co-star Chris Bauer donned Jack Nicholson masks and fake axes from Stanley Kubrick's horror classic, The Shining to scare the living hell out of guests to the park. Inside the Universal's latest haunted maze, guests wander through "The Overlook Hotel" where the actors would pop out of iconic scenes from the movie.

Watch Franco & Bauer "chop it up" with guests at Universal Studios:
