Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Terror In The Aisles’ Promotional Skull! (1984)

One of my guilty pleasures from the world of 80’s horror was the movie Terror In The Aisles – a feature film documentary filled with a compilation of clips from some of your favorite horror movies that were released prior to this 1984 release date.  Oh, and it was hosted by Donald Pleasence and Nancy Allen!  It also sported a sweet poster to boot, and speaking of sweet…..check out this promotional rubber skull that I saw pop up on eBay:

I’m not even going to bother lying.  I want that thing.  Do I want it for $50 though?  Therein lies the question going through my mind as I type this.  Regardless of the price, it’s kind of a cool piece of 80’s horror history – and something that you could proudly display as well. It measures about 8″ X 5″ and looks to be in overall good condition.  If you are interested in knowing more about this promotional rubber skull from Terror In The Aisles, then head on over HERE.  If you haven’t seen the movie btw, I recommend it because it’s a good time and you get to see Donald Pleasance!

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘The Toxic Avenger’ Promotional Standee!

If you know anything about me, then you know that I love promotional standees for horror movies!  Actually, a lot of you probably don’t know that about me.  It’s kinda like a deep dark secret.  But anyway, once in a while I peruse eBay and see what pops up.  And quite possibly the ‘holy grail’ of promotional standees appeared during my recent search!

s-l1600

Holy mops and toxic waste!  Tell me you wouldn’t be the envy of all of your friends if you had that greeting them at the door when they came over.  And how cool is it that it has an actual mop head attached?  Now – you’re probably asking what something like this costs.  Well………it would run you at least $250 (which honestly isn’t terrible considering the rarity of it), but the seller has a ‘Make Best Offer’ option as well.  Head on over to the listing HERE and snatch it up if you’re feeling impulsive and extra toxic today!

Ebay Find Of The Week: Promotional ‘High Tension’ Matches And Keychain!

If you’ve seen the 2005 French horror movie High Tension, then chances are that you either LOVE it or HATE it – all primarily based on the twist that comes in the end.  It’s a twisty twist and seems to divide most High Tension watchers.  Me myself, I loved it.  And because I loved it, I was pretty stoked to see these promotional items on eBay this week!

s-l1600

High Tension matches and a keychain!  Not exactly groundbreaking, but still pretty cool nonetheless.  The ‘barbed wire bat’ keychain is symbolic and not for anything to do with Negan from The Walking Dead.  Now, if you are a High Tension fan like me then you might want to head on over to the eBay link HERE and contemplate if you need some matches for anything.  The price ($25) is a tad rich for my blood, but there’s always a chance that the seller will come down with the price.  Now excuse me while I go put on the song ‘New Born‘ by Muse and think about any exes of mine who did me wrong…….

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.

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Wishmaster’ Button Pins!

As I’ve stated before, horror pins seem to be all of the rage nowadays and I myself have bought into the hype both figuratively and literally.  But what about the good old horror days, when buttons or pins were made to help promote a movie?  Case in point – the 1997 movie Wishmaster.  What would you do if you could own a promotional pin from that film?  Or wait – what if you could own TEN promotional pins?!?!

s-l1600

Yesssssssss.  Someone on eBay is selling 10 promotional pins from Wishmaster.  You’re gonna have to be a pretty hardcore Wishmaster fan to snag these up, but I’m sure there is someone out there who can’t get enough of Djinn!  Maybe you can buy them and try and use them as quarters too.  But anyway – if you want to be the proud owner of this lot of Wishmaster pins, then follow the link HERE and snatch them up for $10.  Sidenote: I’m not sure why the listing has the word ‘Vampire‘ in it.  Clearly this seller has never seen the movie.  For shame!  I wish for you to be banned from selling Wishmaster merchandise.

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight’ Promotional Pin (1995)

I have found myself falling into this collector ‘pin craze’ that’s been going on lately (thanks in large part to Creepy Company), so because of that I also find myself searching eBay from random promotional pins from yesteryear.  And upon a recent search……I found this!

s-l1600

Truth be told, I am a Tales From The Crypt junkie.  I love anything and everything that has to do with the comics, the show, and The Cryptkeeper.  And the movie Demon Knight might be one of my favorite ‘fun’ horror movies ever.  Sooooooo – not a huge surprise that my trigger finger is itchy to snatch up this pin off of eBay.  But before I do, I am going to give you the reader the chance to snatch it up before me because that’s the kind of guy I am.  I care about the horror people.  So, if you would like to grab it like a rabbit, then head on over to the listing HERE and it can be yours for less than $10 (including shipping).  Enjoy, boys and ghouls!

Ebay Find Of The Week: Promotional Magnifying Glass From ‘Lifeforce’ (1985)

I was just saying to myself the other day that magnifying glasses are a very underrated item in the world today.  How else are we supposed to read fine print?!?!  I guess a pair of glasses or some contacts would work, but what if it’s really super small and what if I want something that is also affiliated with a cult horror movie?  Oh if only there was a magnifying glass available on eBay from a 1985 horror/sci-fi movie directed by Tobe Hooper………….

s-l500

Oh my lucky horror stars!  Is that?  Could it be?  It is!  Putting the magnifying glass game to shame is an actual promotional magnifying glass from the 1985 movie Lifeforce.  It looks as though it was given to video stores in promotion for the VHS release.  Aside from the boobs that were in the movie, there were actually some cool vampires too and Lifeforce is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine.  But mostly for the boobs.  If you’re feeling especially nostalgic and want to own this rare magnifying glass so you can read your funnies on Sunday morning, then head over to the eBay listing HERE.  Yikes – $55? Really, random eBay seller?  Well, maybe the price will lower.  Until it does, enjoy some of the free complimentary Lifeforce boobs below.

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Young Michael Myers’ Clown Mask Replica From ‘Halloween’

It hasn’t been proven, but I might have a lot of readers who are 6-years-old and younger. And for all of my youngsters out there, who now that I think about it shouldn’t be reading my blog, have I got a treat for you!  If you want to scare the shit out of your babysitter around Halloween, you can now get your grubby hands on a replica of the clown mask that a young Michael Myers wore in the original Halloween.

s-l1600

All jokes aside, this is a mask for adults and is an adult size mask.  And it comes in three different versions:  clean, weathered, and bloody.  The one in the image is the weathered version.  It’s hand painted onto very strong plastic and a protective coat is also applied. The detail is pretty amazing, although the price is a bit steep at $60.  It does include free shipping though and no two masks will be the same since they’re handmade.  If you’re interested in picking one up, you can do so right HERE.  Happy Halloween!

Ebay Find Of The Week: ’30 Days Of Night’ Promotional Beanie

Well, it’s the summertime and as the late Glenn Frey would say…..the heat is on!  There are a lot of ways to beat the heat:  a dip in the pool, rubbing ice cubes all over your body, eating some delicious ice cream, and buying a promotional 30 Days Of Night beanie.

s-l1600

Yeah – probably not going to really keep you cool, but you will be really stylish while you’re dripping buckets of sweat from wearing a beanie in 100 degree weather.  Although uneven, I actually enjoyed 2007’s vampire flick 30 Days Of Night.  So much so, that I almost clicked ‘Buy It Now‘ on the eBay listing for this promotional beanie.

If you are a bigger 30 Days Of Night fan than me, then head on over to the listing HERE and check it out.  The asking price of $8 isn’t too shabby for what it is.  I’ve spent money on a lot worse off of eBay before.  And to get you in the mood, watch one of my favorite scenes from the movie below and feel free to shout out your best vampire screech while you’re at it:

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Bad Dreams’ Promotional T-Shirt (1988)

Oooooooh…..I love promotional T-shirts from horror movies!  Especially ones that shouldn’t even really exist.  Like this one!

s-l1600

Damn right.  That’s a promotional T-shirt from the 1988 movie Bad Dreams.  Some would say it was a Nightmare On Elm Street knock-off, while others would say it’s an underrated 80’s gem.  And others might also say that actor Richard Lynch was one of the creepiest looking human beings ever put on this Earth.  Point is that you probably won’t ever see a Bad Dreams promotional T-shirt up for sale ever again.  So if you’re an 80’s horror enthusiast, or maybe someone who just likes collecting random shit – head on over to the eBay link HERE and grab this while you can.  It looks to be in good condition, which is always good for used piece of clothing.
