Remember that first time you saw the original A Nightmare On Elm Street? Freddy Krueger was literally something out of a nightmare. He was creepy, maniacal, and just plain fucking scary. But as the later NOES sequels went on, Freddy became more cartoonish – like a Three Stooges episode. His evil was replaced with yucks and bad puns. And the marketing they did for poor ol’ Freddy around these times? Oh, the marketing. Case in point: Freddy’s Bubble Gum!
Oh, Freddy :-/ But anyway, my point of this post isn’t to scold those involved with pimping Mr. Krueger out to the world with terrible ideas and concepts – my point for this is to let you know that you can buy that unopened box of Freddy’s Bubble Gum on eBay right now! Yay? For those who don’t know – the container is just a plastic tube filled with terrible tasting gum with a picture of Freddy at the top and a “clever” saying attached. I mean look, it’s nostalgic – even if I don’t agree with the direction they took him. So, if you want to own this piece of Freddy Krueger nostalgia….then head on over HERE to the eBay listing and snatch it up or make an offer. I would advise against eating that gum though.
God bless, eBay. And by the way, do you know what time it is? Well – you do now, because during my weekly scouring of the eBay horror listings I stumbled upon a super rare item. This glorious promotional wall clock from the 1986 movie April Fool’s Day!
Now, normally I don’t get too excited over wall clocks – but you have to admit that this is an exception. I always dug April Fool’s Day and it’s approach to the slasher genre, so I wouldn’t be hesitant to snatch this guy up. It is a bit pricey ($124.99), but it is rare and honestly you might never find another one again. If you’re interested in looking at more pics and read more info on the listing, head on over HERE to check it out!
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!
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!
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!
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…….
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.
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……..
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.
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.
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!
One of my favorite sequels to the original A Nightmare On Elm Street is easily A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. And one of my favorite scenes from that sequel is when Freddy turns Phillip into a human marionette. But before Freddy does that, he himself is a little marionette before he turns into actual Freddy. And guess what? Someone has created a replica of ‘Marionette Freddy’ and is selling him on eBay!
Now, if you go to the eBay listing HERE, you can see more pics. Unfortunately, not much more info is given (other than the buyer uses bad punctuation), so you’re buying a bit blindly here unless you want to contact the seller. From the pics though, this looks like a top notch replicate of the marionette in the movie. The price is a bit steep at $390, but given the detail and time it most likely took to make this – it might be worth it. If I were to buy this, I would be slightly worried that it would come alive in the middle of the night and I would wind up on top of the roof at my building falling to my untimely slumber death……..
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.
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:
Well, there’s a first time for everything – and today’s first time is me writing about the killer rat movie Willard, a remake from 2003 of the 1971 original. And if you ever wondered if there were any promotional rubber rats that were given out to help promote the remake, feast your eyes on this:
Boom! No, that rubber rat is not playing dead – it’s just flipped over, thanks to the seller on eBay, to let you know that it’s legit. Gotta love that the website associated with Willard was ‘www.tearhimup.com‘ btw. Sadly it doesn’t exist anymore. But yes, this gem of a find is up on eBay right now if you go HERE. It’s a modest $31 right now, but you can make an offer if you wish. And rubber rats are always fun to try and play tricks on people that you don’t like. Sadly, Crispin Glover (the star of the movie) does not come with this promotional product. But if you would like your Crispin Glover fix, then please watch the clip below and feel free to emulate his funky dance moves……..
