Video: Hollywood Gothique’s Guided Tour through Icons of Darkness
Icons of Darkness takes eager guests on a guided tour through Rich Correll’s collection of horror, fantasy, and science fiction film memorabilia. The guides focus on the nature of the exhibits themselves (are the props and costumes original or recreations, etc.), but we thought it would be fun to offer our own video version of the tour, focusing not displays but on the films they represent. What was special about them? What is their place in film history? Why are the memorable? For the answers to these and other questions, come along with us – if you dare!
Located at the corner of Hollywood and Highland in Hollywood, the exhibition is open daily through February 28. Get ticket information at the official website: iconsofdarkness.com.
