The Hollywood Sci-Fi Museum announced the launch of their Kickstarter for the Hollywood Horror Museum.

The museum, created by some of horror and Sci-Fi’s biggest names, will be the world’s first educational, non-profit museum teaching the history of horror in films, TV, literature and art, as well as filmmaking, makeup, costumes and special effects, from model making to computer graphics.

Board members include Clive Barker (Hellraiser), Sean S. Cunningham (Friday the 13th), Joe Dante (Gremlins), Tom Holland (Child’s Play), Mick Garris (Masters of Horror), Sara Karloff (daughter of Boris Karloff), Tim Lucas (Video Watchdog), Jennifer Lynch (The Walking Dead) and Victoria Price (daughter of Vincent Price).
The museum will include props, costumes, makeup effects and displays from all horror including Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman, Jason from Friday the 13th, Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street, Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Gremlins, zombies, mummies, poltergeists, slasher films, psychological horror, TV shows like The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Munsters, Dark Shadows and tributes to Stephen King and Alfred Hitchcock.

Classes will be taught daily, with Hollywood professionals teaching writing, acting, filmmaking and the art of special effects.

The Hollywood Horror Museum Kickstarter purpose is to raise funds for their 2016 World Tour, with a permanent museum tentatively 2018 in Los Angeles, next to the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum.

Sponsors include Famous Monsters, Entertainment Earth, Shout Factory, Synapse Films and Severin Films. Rewards include rare items from Clive Barker, Tom Holland and all the board members.

What some of the board members have to say: 
Tom Holland: “The Horror Museum is the best idea I’ve heard in a long while that will give the public some of the greatest movies to watch, remind them of the history of monsters, and protect valuable screen-used props.”
Clive Barker: "Horror shows us that the control we believe we have is purely illusory, and that every moment we teeter on chaos and oblivion. I can think of no better reminder, nor worthwhile effort, than saving our most iconic and important horror artifacts to display for future generations."
Sara Karloff: “The establishing of a Hollywood Horror Museum is long overdue.  Horror films have been a major part of Hollywood’s cinema history since its earliest days.  The revenues generated by some of the early horror films helped save the very existence of some major studios.  Horror film stars such as my father, Boris Karloff, made nearly 170 films during his career, many of which were horror films.”
The project began in 2012 when writer/fan Huston Huddleston found two discarded Star Trek Enterprise Bridge sets created by Paramount in 1998, and decided to restore them. The Hollywood Sci-Fi Museum was developed to permanently display all science fiction props, sets, costumes and artifacts. They have nearly 100,000 followers and has 2.3 million Facebook views a week.
