For a limited time only until Sunday 1st November, guests can get up close to iconic props and costumes from some of studio’s best-known horror films, as well as admire the art of horror make-up and prosthetics in a display created especially for the Studio Tour by Oscar®-winning special effects expert Christien Tinsley.
Freddy Krueger’s glove from Nightmare on Elm Street, the original cracked bedroom door from The Exorcist and the sinister stunt doll from Annabelle are showcased amongst a collection of ghoulish film props in the attraction’s Stage 48: Script to Screen. Unearthed from Warner Bros.

Christien Tinsley, who was honored with an Academy Award® for Best Technical Achievement, received an Oscar® nomination for his work on The Passion of the Christ, and three Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Prosthetic Make-Up on American Horror Story, Glee and Nip/Tuck has constructed a unique exhibit which demonstrates the step-by-step development of practical creature effects for horror films. Guests are able to see the process behind incredibly-detailed prosthetic special effects make-up. The artist’s display takes guests through the creative process, from design, sculpting and molding to painting and application (highlighted with tools, reference images and special effects supplies).
A spooky photo opportunity adds the final touch to the Horror Made Here experience; inviting guests to take the ultimate head shot. The final effect, achieved by a mirror illusion, shows guests with their head on a platter and provides fright fans with a fun memento of their visit.
