Horror Made Here

Friday, October 2, 2015

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood unveiled a brand new experience for fright fans as Horror Made Here made its debut. Featured inside the newly-opened Stage 48: Script to Screen and available for a limited time only especially for Halloween, Horror Made Here offers guests the opportunity to discover behind-the-scenes filmmaking secrets from some of Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema’s more sinister titles.

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. Archives especially for the occasion, the authentic artifacts also include the spell book and wooden staff with totems and crystals from Practical Magic as well as the music box and ‘Miss Me?’ notes from The Conjuring.

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.

Launching Stage 48: Script to Screen

Wednesday, July 15, 2015


Last night, guests celebrated the launch of Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood’s new 25,000 sq ft expansion, Stage 48: Script to Screen, ahead of its official opening on July 16th. Based on the studio lot, which is home to more than 90 years of much-loved entertainment, drama and action, Stage 48 gives guests unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the world of film and TV production.

At the red carpet preview of Stage 48, guests had the opportunity to get up close to sets, props and costumes from some of Warner Bros.’ most beloved movies and TV shows. Celebrated Actor and Director Clint Eastwood joined invited guests last night for the exclusive preview, declaring Stage 48 “a terrific tour.”

Talent was spotted testing out the orange couch on the original Central Perk set from “Friends” and seen riding a Bat-Pod from “The Dark Knight” series at the green screen experience.Celebrities also enjoyed a coffee from the Studio Tour’s brand new Central Perk Café before exploring an authentic space capsule from Oscar®-winning epic “Gravity.” Guests also appeared to shrink as they took a seat at a recreation of the table used in “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings,” which relies on an optical illusion to make cast members appear significantly smaller or larger than they actually are.

Special appearances by stars from TV shows featured on Stage 48 included Jon Cryer, who starred as Alan Harper in all 12 seasons of “Two and a Half Men” and was spotted at the show’s famous living room set. Stage 48 offers “a window into how we actually work,” said Cryer.

Other stars included Director Zack Snyder posing in front of original "Superman" costumes and "Friends" cast member James Michael Tyler posing behind the counter on the authentic Central Perk set just as his character Gunther did on the show.

Along with the launch of Stage 48, which includes a shop themed with props from Warner Bros.’ film and TV classics, newly enhanced elements have been added throughout other areas of the experience including specially recorded messages from the stars of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and the wildly successful “Pretty Little Liars”. Stage 48: Script to Screen opens to the public tomorrow, Thursday, July 16, and entrance is included in the standard ticket price.

This innovative new addition to the Studio Tour, Stage 48: Script to Screen offers guests the unique opportunity to explore the full film and television production process – from the earliest scripts and casting sessions to the final touches in post-production and the glory of awards season, each component is represented step-by-step throughout the purpose-built soundstage.

Guests will also be able to design their own Batmobiles and movie costumes while in the pre-production section. Guests will enjoy “flying” on Harry’s broomstick at the photo opportunity, which employs the same green screen technology used in the “Harry Potter” movie productions.

Additionally, the Studio Tour will feature newly enhanced elements throughout the attraction, including specially recorded messages from the stars of “2 Broke Girls,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” as well as new video montages highlighting the movies and television shows filmed over the years on the studio’s iconic backlot sets.
