Halloween Horror-Themed Art Exhibition
Hollywood Gothique Says:
There is much delightfully creepy art on display at SugarMynt’s annual Halloween-themed exhibition. Whether or not you a fan of the Michael Myers franchise, you are bound to find interesting treats, including posters, collectibles, and decorations inspired by John Carpenter’s Halloween and other movies with spooky season on their mind (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus). The more expensive work is for serious collectors, but even if you’re not in the market for original art, Haunted Haddonfield is worth a visit just to browse.
