like scary movies 200x300 - Take a Sneak Peek at the I LIKE SCARY MOVIES Immersive Experience Opening This Week

When I was invited to take an advanced walkthrough of the I Like Scary Movies immersive experience last week, I had no idea that I’d be joined by horror icons Mick Garris and Bill Moseley; obviously, we all had a blast! Though many pieces were still being assembled, the installation pays tribute to IT, The Shining, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Beetlejuice, and The Lost Boys.

I Like Scary Movies (at the Desmond on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles) opens to the public this Thursday, April 4th, and will run most Thursdays thru Saturdays until June 16th. Here’s a summary of what awaits you:

Come play with us! “Sink” into the infamous carpet from The Shining’s 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 St. 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 we’ll have exclusive merchandise for you to take a part of your experience home with you!
