In the run up to Halloween the theme park transforms at night into a world of haunted houses, scare zones, creepy mazes and actors dressed as your favourite horror villains and creatures to give you a real fright or two.

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride billboard 2012
This billboard for L.A.'s annual Haunted Hayride employs that familiar horror trope of the tragic family photo with a sinister past.
LA Haunted Hayride billboard 2012
Indeed this mono family portrait splattered in blood hints at murderous goings-on, and if that's not enough there's also a great big Jack O'Lantern to get the Halloween message across.

MOVIE WEEK: Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 billboards...

 Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 movie billboard
The end is nigh and The Twilight Saga is almost over on the big screen.
Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 movie billboard
Will you be breathing a sigh of relief or shedding a tear or two over the finale of Breaking Dawn Part 2?
Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 billboard
Fans of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling books will already know how the love story between 'Bella Swan' and 'Edward Cullen' ends, but from the looks of these billboards there'll be lots of vampire and werewolf action before the couple, and their new daughter, can live happily ever after.
Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 movie billboard
The other questions on everyone's lips is whether Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will stay together off screen after all the publicity for this final installment is over, and whether they along with Taylor 'Jacob Black' Lautner can have a successful career beyond the Twilight movie franchise. As none of their respective solo projects - Snow White & the Huntsman, Water for Elephants or Abduction has proven to be a box office smash yet.
Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 movie billboard
These billboards for the final chapter in the saga were snapped along 3rd Street on the side of The Grove shopping centre, plus along Melrose Avenue and Beverly Boulevard on October 25, 2012.

MOVIE WEEK: Lincoln billboards...

Daniel Day Lewis Lincoln movie billboard
In Hollywoodland it's not unusual for there to be two movies about the same historic figure released in the one year, but if the supernatural fantasy Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter wasn't your cup of tea, maybe Daniel Day-Lewis' portrayal of Lincoln will be more to your liking (and historically accurate).
Lincoln movie billboard
Obviously when an Academy Award-winning actor like Daniel Day-Lewis plays the 16th (and one of the most recognizable) President of the United States, and is directed by an Academy Award-winning director like Steven Spielberg, you just know there's going to be some serious Oscar buzz surrounding this movie.
Lincoln movie billboard
Add to the fact this is a Presidential Election year and there's never been a better time to release a biopic drama like this.
Lincoln movie billboard
These evocative billboards for Lincoln were snapped along Beverly Boulevard, Fairfax Avenue and Melrose Avenue from October 13 to October 24, 2012.

UPDATED: To add some extra marketing muscle behind the opening weekend, here's a giant-sized billboard for the movie snapped along L.A.'s Sunset Strip on November 9, 2012.
Giant Lincoln movie billboard Sunset Plaza
Giant Lincoln movie billboard
The question will be can this epic historical drama about the popular U.S. President beat the dashing British Secret Service Agent, 007, in Skyfall at the box office, or will audiences be looking for some pure escapism after the months of focus on politics in the recent Presidential Elections.

MOVIE WEEK: The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey billboards...

Hobbit An Unexpected Journey movie billboard
For three consecutive years Peter Jackson wowed the world with The Lord of Rings trilogy, but can he make magic happen again with his new trilogy for The Hobbit.
Gandalf Hobbit Unexpected Journey billboard
One of the questions will be, is there enough content to fill three movies and will The Hobbit just be more of the same (not that that's necessarily bad), or can it capture our collective imagination in new ways.
Hobbit An Unexpected Journey movie billboard
If anyone can do it Daily Billboard is confident that the director will deliver another three epic fantasy films (obviously the less said about his King Kong remake the better).
Hobbit Dwarves billboard
In these prequels, Ian MacKellen returns as the wise wizard 'Gandalf' and Martin Freeman takes the reins from Ian Holm as the younger, titular Hobbit, 'Bilbo Baggins'.
Hobbit movie billboard
Along with elves, dragons and the other magical creatures of Middle-Earth, you can expect a whole host of dwarves to take center stage as Bilbo's traveling companions.
Hobbit movie billboard
In this first installment entitled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, our diminutive hero sets off with his thirteen dwarven allies to the Lonely Mountain to reclaim a stolen treasure from the dragon 'Smaug'.
Hobbit An Unexpected Journey movie billboard
Not to give anything away, but the next movies will be sub-titled The Desolation of Smaug and There and Back Again, released in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
Hobbit An Unexpected Journey movie billboard
These billboards for the first movie, featuring an assortment of familiar faces and races, were snapped around the streets of L.A. from October 10 to October 23, including an early portrait teaser featuring Gandalf snapped at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank on August 26, 2012.
