Trivia

The title "Hollywood Babylon" is taken from an infamous book by Kenneth Anger that allegedly exposed the seamy underside of Hollywood and many famous people in the movie industry. It was banned in the United States for ten years and the subject of lawsuits as most of its material was poorly sourced. See more »

Goofs

When Dean is shown with a headset for the first time (18:10), it looks like the other end of the headset wire isn't attached to anything. However, what we see is the clip used to hold the cable to your clothes, that Dean isn't using. See more »

Quotes

Martin: I cannot believe there's an afterlife.
Dean Winchester: There's an afterlife all right. But mostly it's a pain in the ass.

A Joke and Tribute to Hollywood People
23 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dean and Sam go to Hollywood to investigate a haunted studio where the lead actress Tara Benchley of a horror movie saw a member of the crew dead and a ghost. Sam researches and finds that four people have died along the last eighty years and the ghost could be any of them. The Winchester brothers are mistaken as PAs and discover that the event was actually a marketing strategy to promote the film. But when the producer Brad Redding first and another executive later die in the set, they discover that a revengeful screenwriter is really summoning fiends in the shooting.

"Hollywood Babylon" is a funny episode, a joke and tribute to Hollywood people. Dean is hilarious, fascinated with the life and the lead actress of the movie. There are also many references to horror movies in this enjoyable episode. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Assombração em Hollywood" (Ghost in Hollywood")
