AM~Erica Finds the Horror in the Music

So anyway...

(<<< == Like the different pic for this post?)

As we were having an amazing time at the EMP museum, and totally geeked & freaked in the Icons of Science Fiction exhibit, it moved right into a very creepy was all about horror flicks...

It was dark & set up kind of like being lost in a forest. Many pics that I got didn't really turn out due to the extra low lighting throughout. However, there was some pretty cool stuff.

And, I would like to point out that I am very happy there were no birds anywhere in there. I might have died of a heart attack, landing in an ugly puddle of something. So...we all survived!

Teen Girl with the mask & machete of Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th movies

The ax used by Jack Nicholson in "The Shining"

The glove of Freddy Krueger in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" movie series
and the gloves of Edward Scissorhands
(no...I have no idea why the scissorhands were in this exhibit, but they were Johnny Depp'

One of the iconic costumes used on one of the zombies of the Thriller mini-movie

Hubby & the kiddos doing the Thriller dance (kind of) with the Thriller zombie costume

A movie being shown on the floor, so Teen Girl played dead in it.
Hey, it's about the horror of it, right?

This screen was SO cool! This is the kids in front of a projector that would give their silhouettes
extra hair, eyes, birds, strange bubbles, etc. on this shadow wall. It was AWESOME!
One of the most awesome parts of the exhibit was doing the "Scream Booth". It was like a photo booth that would record pictures of you screaming. You had to pick being either "fight" or "flight" (otherwise choosing predator or victim).

Teen Girl screaming

Teen Boy screaming

Lil Guy screaming
And once you picked which screaming picture was best, it was added to the ongoing digital display while the horror exhibit was there. All three kids showed up together...

Hubby took a turn...

...and he was SCARY!!

My turn inside the scream booth

My pic in the scream digital exhibit with Teen Boy
(look familiar? See my opening photo.)
This exhibit was kind of weird, kind of creepy, but still kind of cool. It was a traveling exhibit that left the EMP at the beginning of September.

But the museum continues...time to check out some Seattle music...

Stay tuned...

God Bless, AM~Erica
