Dirty Horror’s Rapid Reviews: Get Out (2017), The Belko Experiment (2017), Pet (2016)

Being that I’m a busy man (some sarcasm is implied there), I haven’t been keeping up on my reviews!  For shame.  Soooooooo – instead of boring everyone with long-winded summaries of what I thought of my recent watches, I’ll condense them and skip the bullshit.  Let’s go!    Continue reading

Fright Rags Just Released Some AMAZING Re-Animator Trading Cards!

Being that I’m officially over-the-hill in age, I have my fair share of memories of collecting trading cards growing up.  And now thanks to the company Fright Rags, I can relive my youth and celebrate one of my favorite horror movies ever at the same time!  Behold, the newly released Re-Animator trading cards!

16106-ReAnimator-Cards-Single-Pack_1024x1024

16108-ReAnimator-Cards-2_1024x1024

So here’s the deal on these:  First of all, go HERE and snatch some up ASAP.  The reason I say that is because these are limited.  There are 3 options you can purchase:  As a single pack (limited to 600), as a factory box (limited to 200), and as a sealed box (limited to 75). Included in each pack are 5 trading cards, 1 chase card, and 1 sticker.  Also randomly included in packs will be an artist sketch card OR an autographed card from Re-Animator star Barbara Crampton!  I would expect these to go pretty fast, so if you’re interested then I wouldn’t hesitate long.

Good News If You Ever Wanted A Box Of ‘Fu Man Chews Cereal’ From ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge’!

Even though today is the 30th anniversary of A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, I’m going to go against the grain and do a post about A Nightmare On Elm Street 2:  Freddy’s Revenge!  Well, more specifically a little moment that doesn’t get talked about much.  No, not Jesse dancing in his room – but the moment when his little sister is eating a box of Fu Man Chews cereal and playing with the toy fingernails that are inside.

Have you ever watched that part of the movie and thought to yourself “Hmmmm…..I really wish I could own a replica box of Fu Man Chews!“.  Well……..now you can!  And how about a bonus replica of the toy fingernails too?

Ok, I will have to admit that this is pretty cool.  Especially since it comes with the fingernails too.  Now – if you want to try and get your grubby hands on this, you can do so on eBay right HERE.  If you’re located in the US, the shipping is a bit of a letdown – but in the end you’ll definitely probably be the only one in your crew with a replica box of Fu Man Chews cereal.  Now here’s the scene of Jesse dancing just for diehard Jesse dancing fans out there who just can’t get enough.

The Feel Good Moment Of The Day: ‘Personality’ From ‘Basket Case 3 – The Progeny’ (1991)

With everything going on in the country right now (or let alone the world), we could use a little positivity.  A little something to put a smile on our faces.  A little something to make us all feel better about ourselves.  So roll that ridiculous ‘Personality’ clip from Frank Henenlotter’s Basket Case 3: The Progeny!

There.  Now don’t you feel better about yourself and everything around you?

Review: XX (2017)

Anthology films are like a box of chocolates…..you never know what you’re going to get. Unless of course you are eating a box of chocolates that has that little guide on it to show you what you’re going to get.  But anyway, anthology films (specifically horror movies) can be hit-or-miss.  Creepshow will forever be my favorite, but more recently the VHS franchise was the definition of being hit-or-miss as far as anthologies go.  Now comes along XX:  Four tales all directed by women that are intertwined with creepy stop-motion animation.  Will these gals go 4 for 4 or are we entering more hit-or-miss territory here? My money is on the latter unfortunately.    Continue reading

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Saw III’ Promotional Dental Floss

I have a confession to make right now:  I have some food stuck in my teeth.  I know it might be a hard confession to comprehend, but it’s true.  And I also have another confession:  I kinda like Saw III.  It might be one of my favorites in the ongoing Saw franchise.  That might be just as hard to comprehend.  Now if only I could combine my two confessions and get this damn food out from in between my teeth……..

s-l1600

Oh my stars!  Today’s my lucky day!  Yes, that is actually some promotional dental floss released in correspondence with the Saw III movie.  And it’s complete with the hilarious tagline “Opening Wide This Halloween“.  Now, the good news is that a seller on eBay is letting this go to one lucky bidder.  The bad news is that it might be the most expensive dental floss you ever bought because it will set you back about $20.  If you want to check out the listing and more pics, then head on over HERE.  Or if you just want to sit there with food in your teeth like me, then you can do that as well.

Great Moments In Horror Hair History: Johnny Depp In ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’ (1984)

Valentine’s Day may be long gone now (even though it was just yesterday), but that’s not going to stop me from giving you ladies (and some men) out there a special treat.  Let me talk about hair for a minute.  More specifically some hair from 80’s horror movies and even more specifically, the hair on none other than Johnny Depp (Glen) from A Nightmare On Elm Street!

Don’t you just want to run your fingers all through that follicle goodness?  I guess you would say it’s a poofy-feathered do that doesn’t require much Aqua Net to give it that bouncy youthful look.  What the hell did I just write there?  Clearing I’m stammering because I’m so taken by Glen’s hypnotic hair.  Let’s just be glad that the pic didn’t show his cut-off football shirt, or else none of us would be able to concentrate!

Tis a sad thing that this pic was pretty much the last we saw of Glen before he became bed food and a glorious spouting pool of blood.  So with that, it gives me great honor to induct Glen aka Johnny Depp into the class of Great Moments In Horror Hair History! Now get back to work and stop staring!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Head Explosion’ From ‘The Prowler’ (1981)

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I figured I’d get the romance started with an exploding head from the 1981 splatterific slasher movie The Prowler.  Flowers and chocolates are pretty much overrated anyway, so exploding heads are the way to go nowadays.

Welcome to Sunday Bloody Sunday, where as I’ve already mentioned – I’m shining a spotlight onto an exploding head from The Prowler.  But who’s exploding head is it?  Well…..therein lies the rub.  It’s a scene from the end of the movie, so if you haven’t seen it – then this would be considered a big spoiler.  That being because the exploding head is that of the revealed killer!  Dun Dun Duhhhhhh.  Yeah, it’s kind of like a super graphic Scooby-Doo ending.  But anyway, click away below and you’re been warned if you haven’t seen the movie!  P.S. – Kudos to Tom Savini for the FX work.

Who Needs ‘Pennywise The Clown’ When You Have ‘Krinkles The Clown’?

With the anticipation and nervousness associated with the upcoming two-part movie based on Stephen King’s IT, I found myself looking for creepy clowns online.  Much has been discussed and bitched about regarding the new images of the big screen version of Pennywise The Clown, so I found a clown that can easily replace him and be even creepier.  Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls…..I give to you:  Krinkles The Clown!

Sleep with one eye open……gripping your pillow tight!  Alright….Krinkles is pretty fucking creepy.  It’s amazing what was geared towards kids in the 50’s and 60’s btw.  I’m not sure what kind of boost creepy ol’ Krinkles gave to the Sugar Rice Krinkles brand cereal – but I’m sure every kid in America ran out to the stores so they could own a box with his disturbing face on the front.  Krinkles is pretty jolly, I will give him that.  I’ll also give him the fact that he would probably murder you in your sleep and cut you into little pieces.
