It’s been a year and a half since plans to build the Hollywood Horror Museum — which will celebrate the horror genre’s contributions to the arts — were first announced through a Kickstarter campaign. How far along in the process is the museum? Where will it be located? And who are the names behind it?
The following is what we know (and don’t know) so far about the Hollywood Horror Museum:
Vlad the Impaler stands at the downstairs entrance of the Torture Museum Oude Steen doing what he does best. The notoriously barbaric ruler (better known as Dracula) holds a spear in his left hand with a man’s pale, severed head resting on the sharp tip.
Think of this scene — which, like all the exhibits in this museum in Bruges, Belgium, is recreated with mannequins — as an appetizer for what is to come.
