The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) presents an evening discussion between producer and director Roger Corman (The Little Shop of Horrors, House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum) and director Andy Muschietti (IT, IT: Chapter Two, Mama) moderated by writer Anthony Breznican (Vanity Fair) on the past, present, and future of the horror movie genre. The panel will be followed by an audience Q&A.

The evening will also include movie props from IT, food trucks, cash bars, and access to NHM’s new homegrown Hollywood exhibition Natural History of Horror, which links science, history and the art of movie-making by exploring scientific discoveries – from early experiments in animal electricity to the excavation of King Tut’s tomb – that inspired some of cinema’s most iconic monsters.

  • 6pm: Doors open to public
