October isn’t complete without its trademark holiday Halloween. Throughout the month, plastic ghosts, cardboard vampires, and toy devils appear in windows and grocery stores around town. This October, Experience Music Project (EMP) is hosting an exhibit in tune with the spirit of the season.
The exhibit aims to explore the cultural relevance of the horror genre and examines the role that horror plays in the human experience. Visitors will also get a chance to view iconic artifacts, including the script from Night of the Living Dead, the alien creature suit from Alien, the scavenger demon from Constantine, Jack Torrance's axe from The Shining, the original "Gill Man" mask used in Creature from the Black Lagoon, Bram Stoker's Dracula manuscript, and other horror film memorabilia.
According to EMP’s website, there are some interactive events as well, including a scream booth, a horror soundscapes, and a monster timeline.
