The Hollywood Horror Museum will commence a world tour starting in 2016 and have a permanent location in Los Angeles come 2018. The museum is created by the “Masters of Horror” (Clive Barker, Sean S. Cunningham, Joe Dante, Mick Garris, Tom Holland, Sara Karloff, Tim Lucas, Jennifer Lynch and Victoria Price). The museum is not intended to be a “Halloween Haunted House” but rather a nonprofit, educational museum that will examine “what frightens us and why”.
Guests will be involved and educated as they learn all aspects of film making from makeup, costumes and special effects to model making and computer graphics. Artistic, technological, psychological, historical and creative aspects of horror in all formats will be presented through interactive exhibits and presentations.
“Horror as a genre has become mainstream through Emmy winning TV shows like American Horror Story and The Walking Dead and films like The Exorcist and Paranormal Activity”.
