Buttons and pins seem to be all the rage nowadays, so it only makes sense to start scouring eBay for old promotional horror buttons. And upon my scouring, I came across this little gem for all of my Phantasm fans out there:
Wow. That’s one big ass button! It looks like it’s the size of about 20 quarters. No word in the listing if the quarter actually comes with the button or not though. I actually like Phantasm II more than Phantasm, and I’m sure I’m not alone on that. So if you need this to add to your Phantasm collection, it will only set you back $12.95 (plus shipping) which is not too shabby for a magnificent horror-themed button. You can go to the eBay listing HERE to snatch it up before someone else does. Do it now BOY!!!!!!!
Who doesn’t love promotional buttons?!?!? Ok – I’m sure a lot of you don’t really love promotional buttons. But let’s just say for the sake of this post that you do. Well then, I found something amazing, but completely unnecessary on eBay today just for you!
You might think those just look like some normal promotional buttons from the 1992 horror movie Sleepwalkers…….and you would actually be right. Nothing too crazy going on here, but they do all have their own sense of flair. Sleepwalkers for all purposes is not a great movie. But it is enjoyable in a ‘crappy horror movie’ kind of way, and these buttons just add to the flavor of that crappiness.
It seems from two of the buttons that they were really trying to hype up Clovis The Cat too. These would make great random stocking stuffers for someone this holiday season, so if you’d like to get in on the action you can go HERE to place a bid. And after you do, you can come back and watch the one and only scene from a horror movie where someone gets killed by a corn cob.
Good thing I’m in the market for a new overpriced 80’s horror movie keychain! Upon searching for keychains on Ebay for some reason, I stumbled upon something so rare…..so special…..so unnecessary…..that I just had to share the good news with you. Brace yourselves as you gaze upon this promotional keychain from the 1987 horror/comedy, House II: The Second Story!
Oh it’s beautiful, and I’m actually having trouble finding the words to describe such a remarkable specimen. And it’s even better if you like the color yellow! Now for those who don’t know, House II: The Second Story was a sequel to the entertaining first movie in 1986 called House. Personally, I didn’t really like the sequel, but I’m sure there are fans out there who will clamor towards this keychain. But (and it’s a big but), it’s going for $25 on Ebay right now. There is the option to ‘Make An Offer’, so you have that going for you. Head on over to the listing HERE and take a look. I’ll stand back cautiously while the stampede settles down to claim this one……
Dang. I didn’t get a chance to go to Universal Studios in Japan this year. Not that I was really planning on it, but after seeing this little horror nugget that they’re selling exclusively over there, it felt like the right thing to say. Feast your eyes on the Hello Kitty/Chucky hybrid vinyl figure!
How adorable! Fun for all ages I’m sure. I do have to admit that I kind of want one, and I’m not too confident that Universal Studios in Hollywood is going to be getting them anytime soon. So what does that mean? You go to Ebay and pay 5 times the price of course! Just know that this figure is pretty small, so try not to shell out too much dough for it. To ship from Japan, I would say $40-60 total is a decent price. You can get one for $54 right HERE that includes shipping. Domo Ariagto!
I was never much of a comic book reader when I was a kid. But the comic books that I did have were horror related in some way, shape, or form. And if you were or are a horror comic book collector then there’s really only one comic book that you need to own: Dr. Giggles!!!!!! I can see that my suggestion of what the number one horror comic book to own should be, so let me say it again and a little louder this time: DR. GIGGLES!!!!!!!!!!!!
Truth be told, I honestly love the movie Dr. Giggles. Yeah, it’s stupid and full of terrible puns, but it’s enjoyable – especially if you’re stoned. And apparently Dark Horse Comics released this two-part comic series featuring our favorite maniacal doctor during the same year the movie was released in 1992. And as luck would have it, I stumbled upon someone selling both copies on Ebay for a very reasonable price! Head on over to the link HERE and place your bid if you dare. And feel free to click the link below to revisit all of Dr. Giggles’ best puns:
I know that Halloween is coming up soon, and Christmas won’t be far behind it. So why not purchase something that combines the two in glorious hand painted latex fashion? Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you – the Jack Frost snowman mask!
If you’ve seen the wonderful 1997 straight-to-video crapfest that is Jack Frost, then you know that the mask above bears an unmistakeable likeness to our favorite homicidal snowman. So if you were to buy this off of Ebay, you could be the hit of your holiday party this year! Just make sure you don’t go dipping your carrot anywhere it’s not wanted. Believe it or not, at $80 a pop – there have already been four of these masks sold and only two are left. So head on over HERE and grab yours before they’re gone. And if you need any inspiration to assist you with your purchase, then by all means click on the link below:
When it comes to disappointing horror movie sequels, 1988’s Return Of The Living Dead Part II is definitely up at the top of that list for me. Such a downgrade to the 1985 original, it attempted the horror/comedy hybrid and pretty much failed miserably and had an annoying kid as the lead character to boot. But sometimes from trash, there is treasure found. Behold the Australian promotional poster for the movie that I found on Ebay recently:
Now if a zombie just walked around giving everyone the middle finger throughout Return Of The Living Dead Part II, then I probably wouldn’t hate it as much as I do. Zombies with a big “Fuck You” attitude always wins me over in the end. I had never seen this poster before, so obviously it’s fairly rare. This copy seems as though it’s in pretty good shape too, but it will cost you. About $125 before shipping to be more exact. If you’re feeling like you really need this Australian poster for Return Of The Living Dead Part II, then head on over to the listing link HERE and snatch it up! Just steer clear of the actual movie.
I honestly never thought I would be doing a post about an Atari video game that costs $500. But here we go! Not just any Atari video game though – but The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Atari video game:
I was actually surprised that the price was so high for this. Not because it’s an old video game, but because it’s a shitty old video game. Pretty much the best thing about it is the cover with the Columbo-looking guy hunting down Leatherface and the fact that Leatherface’s chainsaw in the game looks the cross between a faucet and a penis. Nevermind the $500 price tag, if you are the hardcore horror collector, this is a must to own. Go check out the listing on Ebay over HERE and make sure to check out some of the awesomely bad footage from the game down below:
Guys, why wait 9 months to scramble to find that perfect Valentine’s Day for that special lady in your life? Here I come to save the day again because all of your gift troubles are now solved with these luxurious Critters earrings!
Yeah, it’s a slow news day so you get a post about Critters earrings. But anyway – over on Ebay right now you can grab a pair of these beauties that were apparently hand crafted and hand painted. From the look of them though, you might want to strengthen your earlobes because they could possibly weigh them down and cause some damage.
Critters has always been a favorite movie of mine since the day it came out in 1986 (the sequels not so much), so if I was trying to surprise the female horror movie lover in my life, this might be the way to go! Who the fuck am I kidding, no it wouldn’t. But if you want to roll the dice, head on over HERE and grab your pair while they’re still available!
Nothing gets me more excited than a promotional pin from an early 90’s horror movie. I know, you might be thinking by that statement that I get easily excited – and you would be correct. And luckily for me today, I came across a promotional pin on Ebay for one of the most underappreciated horror films of all time called Popcorn:
Oh it may be small, but it sure does the job! Words that any man would never want to hear by the way. But let’s get back to this fantastic promotional pin. For those who don’t know, Popcorn is a great old school horror movie that came out in 1991, was set in a movie theater and has one of the best taglines ever (Buy a bag….go home in a box.) Long overdue to have a proper DVD/Blu-ray release, Popcorn is a definite guilty pleasure and at the time was a breath of fresh air in the horror movie world. If you’re interested in snatching up this pin, head over to the Ebay listing HERE. It’s cheap, so I suspect it won’t be there for long, especially since I might go buy it right now. Now let’s start the petition to get Popcorn on Blu-ray already.
