The I Like Scary Movies experience was brought to life by Maximillian. He’s the brilliant experiential artist behind 20 years of Comic-Con and Hollywood studio productions. We’ve had our eye on this event for a while, bringing you early news, exhibit views, and an interview with Maximillian himself. We even had a chance to visit the show in person recently. It’s badass! Check out our review here!
The show is open now. Where is it? How do you see it? Read on for the details!
From The I Like Scary Movies Grand Opening Press Release
In celebration of the April 4th opening of the I Like Scary Movies Experience, fans and industry icons came out to immerse themselves in the reimagined worlds of The Shining, Beetlejuice, A Nightmare on Elm Street, the first chapter of IT, and The Lost Boys. Experiential artist Maximillian, of Ultra Productions, was joined by Bryan Fuller (American Gods TV series, Hannibal TV series), Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries TV series, Scream 1996), Glenn Hetrick (Star Trek: Discovery TV series, Face Off TV series), Bobcat Goldthwait (Misfits & Monsters TV series, Shakes the Clown 1992), Sandy King Carpenter (In the Mouth of Madness 1994, They Live 1988), Katie Featherston (Paranormal Activity 2007), DJ Skee, Artist Alex Pardee, Powerman 5000’s Spider One, and many more!
I Like Scary Movies is the experience that all scary movie fans have been dreaming of. It’s a groundbreaking interactive art installation celebrating some of their favorite films. This first-of-its-kind exhibit spans 25,000 square feet (nearly half a football field!). It features amazing large-scale photo opportunities and multi-sensory experiences. The exhibit is vast, and visitors can expect to spend an average of 90 minutes on their quest to capture their own iconic moments as they explore the rich worlds that have come to life.
Come play with us as we take you back to The Shining, where you can “sink” into the infamous carpet from the Overlook hotel and explore REDRUM hedges. Swallow your fear as you pass through the jaws of IT’s Pennywise and explore the clown’s sewer lair. Have a seat in the throne of Freddy Krueger and step into his boiler room to become snatched by his giant glove from A Nightmare on Elm Street. Then have a turn as recently deceased guests in the Netherworld waiting room before visiting Beetlejuice’s graveyard.
Test your strength as you hang from the Santa Clara train tracks before becoming part of a “noodle” dinner from The Lost Boys. These are just a few things that fans will interact with on their way to the Gift Shop at the end of the journey, where guests can find exclusive merchandise to take a part of their experience home with them!
