'World's First' Horror Museum Could Be Housed in 'The Shining' Hotel

This house of horrors will have an impressive Hollywood pedigree.

The Estes Park, Colorado, hotel has long been a must-see for film enthusiasts and horror hunters alike. And if the people behind the project get their way, the "horror destination" would draw legions more people. The Stanley Film Center has applied for an $11.5 million credit through the State of Colorado's Regional Tourism Act, which would be generated through film center sales tax.

"I would love to have a home for which we could constantly come year-round and celebrate with other fans from around the world," Elijah Wood said in a statement. "There's really no better place for there to be a permanent home for the celebration of horror as an art form than the Stanley Hotel. It was practically built for it."

"At 109 years old, the story of the Stanley Hotel is just beginning," said Stanley Hotel owner John Cullen. "The Stanley Film Center is my chance to give back to the millions of horror fans around the world who have supported Estes Park and the hotel for so many years."
