* General horror art inspirations
I was especially excited to see Stephen Gammell's illustrations from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. I loved these stories as a kid and the macabre, surreal art made a big impression on me.
* Other horror films
Compilations of Del Toro's films also played throughout the exhibit to link theme and imagery I didn't catch before. One of my favorite clips was a short film he directed for the show The Strain, which featured a luchador vampire hunter wrestling and then battling vampires. I had no idea luchador horror films existed and now I have to watch them. If you have a chance, definitely go to this exhibit. It's surprisingly large. These pictures are only some of what is displayed. I could have spent all day there.
