Count Orloks's had a wonderful collection of life sized horror movie figures. each one was highly detailed and came with a story beneath it. despite the wonderful collection no photography was allowed and the gift store was placed at the entrance to the building.

For $9 a person you can't beat it. Cool movie monsters and props. All well made, not cheesy. Small but lots of stuff inside. Worth checking out for a quick something to do!
