In partnership with the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, Miskatonic is proud to present this panel on the Universal Monsters as part of a all-day special event.

What truly created the classic Universal Monsters? The iconic figures of the Frankenstein Monster, Dracula, The Wolfman, The Mummy and The Creature from the Black Lagoon were the not only the results of great performance, make-up and filmmaking skill, but a response to the events of the world around them. From the movie monsters birthed by the Great Depression to the creatures who emerged from the atomic age of the 1950s, director Joe Dante (The Howling, Gremlins), author Mallory O’Meara (author, The Lady from the Black Lagoon: Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick) and special guest Sara Karloff will discuss these origins and more on a panel moderated by author and screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner and curated/presented by the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies.

This panel is part of the Natural History Museum’s annual “Haunted Museum” event, in conjunction with their Natural History of Horror exhibit, running through October 2019. Your $25 ticket includes activities at the Museum from 4pm-8pm – including complimentary appetizers and non-alcoholic refreshments, a ghostly scavenger hunt, access to the spider pavilion, a taxidermy demonstration and the panel discussion hosted by the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies from 7-8 pm. 

There is free parking on site and a cash bar will be available.

Note: Tickets are VERY limited so get yours before they run out!
