THE HORROR & SCIFI PROP PRESERVATION ASSOCIATION [International Prop Preservation Association, Inc.] champions the collections and restoration of some of the most incredible screen used props in cinema history. Horror, science fiction, superhero, fantasy, adventure, and all genres in-between find a home in The HSPPA collection.
The Horror & SciFi Prop Preservation Association (The HSPPA) is a not-for-profit museum of screen used and production made props, costumes, and film relics that focus on the Horror & Science Fiction genres with a sub-branching into the Super-Hero/Comic Book, Fantasy, Thriller and Action genres. The HSPPA is the brainchild musician/producer/actor, James Azrael, and centers around his collection, which was started nearly 30 years ago. After repeated mentions from friends, pizza delivery persons & service technicians that his house was like a museum and he should charge admission, James started on the road to form The HSPPA.
