An opening celebration of Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Film
Friday, September 29, 2017
This event is all 21+.
Vampires, zombies, and a slasher or two may be waiting for you in MoPOP’s newest exhibition, Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Film.
Take a tour of the terrifying at the exhibit launch party; join a deadly dance party; and slay the stage in a costume contest with wicked prizes.
Learn the ins and outs of creating horror films at a Q&A with filmmaker and Scared to Death guest director Roxanne Benjamin. Wander through the museum’s haunted halls, but don’t stray too far from your friends. You never know what lurks in the shadows.
Up your chances for survival by coming in costume. Channel your inner Jason, Freddy, Buffy, Ripley, Norman, or Gizmo.
Preparing your costume? Here are the 4 categories for the costume contest:
• Most creative
• Wild Card
Judges will be scouting the audience from 9:00pm–11:00pm and picking the most deserving semi-finalists.
