COUNT ORLOK'S NIGHTMARE GALLERY
This "history of horror cinema" museum features the most lifelike mannequins in town, including the Phantom of the Opera at a cobwebbed organ, the Creature from Black Lagoon, the freaky little girl from The Exorcist, mama Bates from Psycho, Freddy Krueger, and Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th series. Owner James Lurgio is clearly driven by movie monster nostalgia and respect for the artistry of horror special effects. Bonus: it becomes a haunted house on weekends from October 9 to 31.
