ABOUT Can’t Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film
Organized by EMP, Can’t Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film examines the pivotal role that horror plays in the human experience.   Three iconic horror directors—Roger Corman, John Landis, and Eli Roth—have curated a selection of their favorite films, providing a solid foundation on which audiences can explore the spectrum of cinematic horror, from its inception at the turn of the 20th century to the present day.
Visitors will get a chance to view iconic artifacts, including the script from Night of the Living Dead, the alien creature suit from Alien, the scavenger demon from Constantine, Jack Torrance’s axe from The Shining, the original “Gill Man” mask used in Creature from the Black Lagoon, Bram Stoker’s Dracula manuscript, and other horror film memorabilia.
Interactive highlights:
Scream Booth:  Visitors are prompted to scream on cue as they watch horror film footage in a soundproof booth. A camera memorializes the moment with multiple shots displayed just outside the stall.
Horror Soundscapes:  Visitors explore the fundamental music elements and scoring techniques used in horror to enhance a cinematic sense of suspense, dread, and terror.
Shadow Monsters:  Philip Worthington’s interactive installation allows visitors to watch as their projected shadows morph into monsters.
