Hollywood celebrities have helped save a Los Angeles horror bookstore.
They told the Los Angeles Times that they considered the effort a shot in the dark, so a retweet from filmmaker Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Blade II, and The Shape of Water) caught them by surprise.
It also worked.
By Tuesday evening, the GoFundMe had well surpassed its initial $20,000 goal — and of that, $3,000 came from another famous filmmaker: James Wan, director of Saw, Insidious, and Aquaman.
(The goal is now at $30,000, with over $27,000 of that secured.)
Read the rest of Del and Sue Howison’s feel-good story in the Los Angeles Times.
