Monstrous Movie Memorabilia on Display
Hollywood Gothique Says:
Though basically a year-round attraction rebranded for Halloween, Hollywood Museum’s Dungeon of Doom offers more than enough posters, props, photos, and costumes to satisfy hungry horror movie fans. Unfortunately, the attraction loses one-half star for erroneously captioning a pic of Christopher Lee as Dracula, misidentifying him as Frank Langella!
