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!
Shots! Shots! Shots! Shots! Fitting considering it’s Cinco de Mayo and I’m craving tequila. But anyway, why take a shot out of a boring shot glass that you picked up on your road trip to Nebraska when you can put your lips onto this promotional shot glass from the remake/reboot of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre?!?
Unfortunately, they weren’t able to coordinate Jessica Biel’s wondrous white tank top into the design of the shot glass, but it’s a shot glass nonetheless. Some good news is that the seller on eBay has about 10 of these and is accepting offers and is including ‘free shipping’ as well. So, I’m guessing you could probably snag one for around $5 in total. If you’re feeling like you need this in your life, then go to the listing HERE and do your business. Or you can just go to Youtube and look up slow-mo shots of Jessica Biel running around in that white tank top. Your choice.
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…….
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.
Ho-Ho-Ho!! Santa isn’t done bringing you presents yet! And man oh man, do I have good news for any of you little boys and girls out there that were asking for a promotional tool kit from the 2008 killer plant movie, The Ruins!
That’s right – everything you need to fend off those pesky plant vines that try to burrow into your body and under your skin and make you horribly disfigure yourself to try and get them out: A compass! A flashlight! And something that kind of looks like a switchblade! Truth be told, I kind of admire The Ruins and it’s one of the only horror movies that makes me “squirm”. If you want to own this ultra-rare promotional tool kit from the movie, then head on over to the eBay listing HERE and either ‘Buy It Now’ or ‘Make An Offer’. You’ll be glad you have this the next time a vine is rubbing up next to you trying to make a move.
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?!?!
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.
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!
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!
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……..
