A Possible Horror-Movie Museum in Colorado?

Posted on October 29, 2015 at 8:00 am

Would you go to a museum devoted to horror movies? That’s the idea behind an $11.5 million proposal to turn the location used for one of the most terrifying movies of all time into a museum, archive, and film production studio devoted to whatever scares you. The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, which inspired the Stephen King novel and provided the location for “The Shining” would become a horror movie resource for studying past films and creating new ones. Horror movie director George Romero and actor Elijah Wood are already signed up as board members.
