“It’s a privilege for us to partner with the Turner Classic Film Festival,” commented Donelle Dadigan, Founder and President of The Hollywood Museum. "What better place to have the Sons of Gods and Monsters panel than at the Museum where guests can explore a whole floor devoted to horror films, with costumes and props from The Walking Dead, The Silence of the Lambs and cult heroes like Freddy, Jason and Chucky.”
From the silent era and the Universal Studios cycle of the 1930s, to the Hammer horrors of the 1950s and ‘60s and the creature features of today, monsters in the movies have scared moviegoers for decades and have inspired young fans to become formative artists and creators of their own monstrosities.
