There’s so much to do this weekend for the horror fan in Los Angeles!

At the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, take a lantern-light guided tour of their exquisite mummy exhibit by Dr. Paul Koudounaris on either Saturday or Sunday night. With dinner and drinks, too. The Marvelous Dead and Darkness Tour, indeed.


Plus, indie film lovers can beat the heat at Dances with Films this weekend. There are so many intriguing flicks for the horror fan here, including 20 Matches, a horror short shot entirely by match light.
