A Seattle museum is exploring some of the 'most terrifying monsters' in horror cinema


An exhibit at Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture is exploring some of the "most terrifying monsters in horror cinema."

"Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Film," which opens Sept. 30, features props and costumes from films and shows including "A Nightmare on Elm Street," "Friday the 13th" and "The Walking Dead," as well as "extensive exhibit films" interviews with top directors and interactive photo ops.

The exhibit is recommended for ages 13 and up, due to some "graphic content."

"Themed gallery sections evoke the unsettling sensations associated with cinematic terror," the museum's website says. "A vampire’s lair drips with blood; zombies shamble through an abandoned containment center; and a thicket of suspended corpses frames a killer’s den."

The Museum of Pop Culture, also known as MoPOP, celebrates contemporary pop culture. Founded in 2000 by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, it features exhibits, interactive activity stations and educational resources.
