Every October, The Hollywood Museum re-brands its ghoulish year-round display Dungeon of Doom, turning it into a Halloween attraction named "Monsters, Mummies and Mayhem." Located in the basement, the Dungeon of Doom features props, posters, photographs from horror films dating from the dawn of the genre to current times, plus full-size figures of Elvira, Vampira, Freddy, Jason, Frankenstein, the Bride of Frankenstein, along with Hannibal Lecter's jail cell from Silence of the Lambs. For Halloween, a live element is sometimes added; typically, on October 31, visitors in costume receive discount admission.

The upper level of the Hollywood Museum is not without interest for fans of Fantasy Films, Mystery Movies, Sci-Fi Cinema, and Halloween Horror, featuring displays of memorabilia from King Kong, Harry Potter, Planet of the Apes, Monsters Inc, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, and many others.
