Upon walking into the MoPop, I made a beeline for the horror exhibit.
The first thing you are greeted with is the Governor’s aquarium of heads from the Walking Dead.
Once inside the exhibit is incredible. It’s dimly lit and feels almost like a haunted attraction. Glass cases that you can look in from both sides house most of the props. And if props aren’t your thing, there are all sorts of high quality sitting areas with TVs showing clips and documentaries about horror films, as well as nice art work that explains some of the biggest icons in horror, the timeline of horror, and even recreated pages from Bram Stroker’s Dracula.
I think most of the pictures and props are self-explanatory so I’m just going to post them for everyone to view. Some of the highlights include: a sweater worn by Robert Englund in A Nightmare on Elm Street, Machete Prop from Dawn of the Dead (1978), Lament Configuration Box from Hellraiser: Inferno, Mr. Pointy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1998), Special Effects Switchboard Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, Pages from the Necronomicon from Evil Dead 2, Judd’s head and ankle from Pet’s Sematary (1989), and the Ax used by Jack Nicholson in The Shining.
If you ever get a chance to check out the horror exhibit at MoPop I highly recommend it!
