There’s nothing quite like a good horror movie this time of year. All those dark color schemes, soundtracks, and scenes really help us get in the mood for spooky season. But did you know that Seattle’s MoPOP has an exhibition that celebrates all things horror year-round?
Yep, horror fans this one is for you. MoPOP’s Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Film is a permanent exhibition and is included in your ticket each time you visit. So no need to pay extra to see more than 50 props and costumes from your film and television horror favorites.
Just which movies can you see props from? Expect to see items from A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, The Walking Dead, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bride of Frankenstein, Dawn of the Dead, Hostel, Jeepers Creepers, Pet Sematary, and more. And if that’s not enough for you, MoPOP let Curiocity in on a little secret and that is the addition of the “Candyman” hook from 1992 and Sutter Cane books from “In the Mouth of Madness.”
While seeing the objects is cool, the exhibit is just about as cinematic as the films themselves. See if you can survive a vampire’s lair dripping with blood and try not to scream when you see suspended corpses framing a killer’s den. But if you do make it through all that you’ll also be able to see extensive exhibit films, oral history interviews with the genre’s top directors, and also some interactive photo ops.
It’s a seriously star-studded exhibit and if you’ve never seen it before now is the perfect time to check it out. Not to mention, it might give you some Halloween costume inspo. If you’d like to learn more you can click below.
