* In Creator/RobertBloch's novel ''Psycho 2'' (different from the [[Film/PsychoII movie]] of that name), nearly everyone in Hollywood (where they're making a [[Film/{{Psycho}} movie about killer Norman Bates]]) is a degenerate scumbag, from the director who watches snuff films to remember the time he watched his mother get gang-raped to death to the male actors who are all perverts, to the leading lady who slept her way into every role. One gets the idea that Mister Bloch was not a fan of Hollywood.

* "Make the Cut", one of the haunted houses at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Singapore]]'s 2017 Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights event, parodies the [[KoreanPopMusic K-pop version of this]], with aspiring singers and actors being [[BodyHorror mutilated via plastic surgery]] by the [[PunnyName K/LL]] Entertainment Group.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', this is the kind of place depicted in Gloria Gouten's mind. She's an actress, who's [[StageMom actress mom]] sent her off to [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors boarding school]] in order to pursue her own career and relationship with her boyfriend. When she left, she also became an actress, becoming very rich and famous, while her [[WhiteDwarfStarlet mom's]] popularity had faded. On the eve of Gloria's debut, her mom committed suicide. However, since this is seen only from the inside of Gloria's head, she may be an UnreliableNarrator.
* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' is set in a thinly veiled parody of southern California, and so the game's version of Hollywood is portrayed as the usual wretched hive of hypocrisy and stupidity.
** The [[EagleLand entire country]], and possibly the [[CrapsackWorld entire world]] is the same way.

** The
stupidity. Then again, this being ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'', the [[EagleLand entire country]], whole damned country]] is portrayed the same way, and possibly the [[CrapsackWorld entire world]] is the same way.as well.

* ''Series/{{Entourage}}'' shows Hollywood at its ''worst'', with petty, egotistical actors and actresses who are easily tempted to ruining their lives with drugs, unscrupulous producers and studio heads, basically anything you can think of when showing the dark side of Hollywood, the show does and doesn’t hold back.

WRONG! In Horrible Hollywood, the actors and actresses are brain-dead, spoiled, have a tendency towards fighting the law, like to engage in occasional sexual deviancy, and are [[HookersAndBlow addicted to various illegal substances and/or sex workers]]. Everyone fears [[WhiteDwarfStarlet growing old and losing their fame]], so plastic surgery and desperate attempts to seem young abound. The directors are [[PrimaDonnaDirector egomaniac control freaks]] who wear funny pants and throw [[HairTriggerTemper petty tantrums]] at the slightest provocation. The assistants are overworked, underpaid, and might be [[DeadpanSnarker snarky towards the talent]], but this won't stop them from ruthlessly trying to climb the ladder -- and in this depraved environment, climbing to the top tends to be a [[CastingCouch horizontal sort of activity]]. The fans are insane and you might gain some stalkers. The executives are fond of [[ExecutiveMeddling excessive meddling]], [[HollywoodAccounting screwing artists out of their royalties]], and/or are just plain [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt]], and have people fired on the spot for being insufficiently sycophantic. [[WritersSuck Writers are second-class citizens]] and {{Butt Monkey}}s. Absolutely everyone -- even those not actually ''in'' the entertainment industry -- is a StepfordSmiler [[SuchAPhony Phony]] who may be all smiles and charm and obsequiousness to your face, but only because they secretly hate you and can't wait for you to turn your back so they can stick a knife into it. Everywhere you look, crippling insecurities and neuroses are constantly being masked with bombastic, preening arrogance and ego.
