Awww yeah! It’s summertime and nothing says summertime like hittin’ the beach for some sand, sun, and tasty waves. And who wouldn’t want to hit the beach with something that would make people stop and stare and say “Why the hell is that person wearing a promotional tank top from the original 1990 Flatliners movie?”
Why, yes. That is indeed an original promotional tank top from the 1990 movie Flatliners. Notice I had to specify by saying the year because of that remake abortion that came out in 2017. Anywho – I do love perusing eBay for old promotional horror items and when this one popped up in my search, I just had to share. It even has a fun ‘beach’ color to it! So if you’re interested in knowing more about purchasing, head on over to the listing HERE. Cowabunga, dudes!
Bones!!! I said…..BONES!!! Yes, everyone loves a good bone. But who doesn’t really love a good bone from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie set?!? You’re probably a bit confused, so let me explain a little. Someone on eBay is selling three bones said to be used in the Sawyer house (specifically the ‘door slam scene’) from the horror classic. Below are said bones:
Now, to help along with the certification – the seller has gotten Ed Neal (The Hitchhiker) from the movie to sign for the authenticity. I bet you’re wondering how much these bones cost. Well……no bones about it, they’re not cheap. Starting at the price of around $2100 (ouch), you can choose ONE of the three ones. Only one bone for you! Want to know more? Head over HERE to the listing to check it out. Now, the original TCM is my favorite horror movie of all time……but, I don’t know I can plunk down $2100 for a bone from the set. To each his/her own though!
Glue: The underrated holiday gift. Think I’m kidding? Hardly. I’m not horsing around and if you’re finding yourself in a sticky situation regarding those holiday gifts this year…….then a strange eBay listing has come to the listing. Behold: The unauthorized A Nightmare On Elm Street glue!
Oh, and it’s ‘multi-purpose’! Just don’t eat it. So anyway, yes – this is an actual thing. And if you go on over to the eBay listing right HERE, then you can learn more about it. There is some pretty nifty stuff on the back of the bottle having fun with the whole “1, 2….Freddy’s coming for you” rhyme. While this is some rather expensive glue ($27), I have a feeling that the horror fan in your life might be ok with this being stuffed in their stocking. Happy Holidays!
Woohoo! Summer has officially arrived! Now, you’re probably wondering what kind of stylish gear you could wear to all of these summertime parties to really make yourself stand out. Well, you can relax. Because I’ve got you covered. Actually, I’ve specifically got your head covered……with this amazing Final Destination 3 promotional hat!
Wow. Look at that trifecta of color just bursting off of that thing. Now, you’re telling me you wouldn’t be pulling all of the D-level ladies with that thing on your skull? Clearly, this will sell fast – so if you want to beat the rush, then you can go on over to the eBay listing HERE and snag it. And…..it looks like you can even make an offer too! Does it get any better than this? That tanning bed scene was pretty cool in the movie btw, right? Ok. My work is done here.
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.
As we officially roll into October (also known as Halloween month), I am reminded of my healthy obsession with old Ben Cooper Halloween masks from the days of past. I myself, had a few Ben Cooper costumes when I was a young lad – so naturally now that I’m in my 40’s, I do enjoy reminiscing on eBay as I try to find some good deals to increase my collection. Case in point:
They’re glorious! So, so glorious! Don’t you just love how the colors pop on these? You can try and duplicate the style, but there’s nothing better than having an original Ben Cooper mask. Or how about 6 of them? The eBay listing that you can find HERE was recently put up and already has some bids (of course). To make these even more tantalizing is the fact that they are in GREAT condition and come with the elastic bands still attached! Very rare. Expect the price to steadily move up on these, but to me the price will be worth it.
Well, the summer is in full swing. The humidity is at an all time high. The sun is shining brightly while I run around at the beach, enjoying seeing people in bathing suits that they probably shouldn’t be wearing. But you know what? I don’t have a hat to protect me from the dastardly UV rays from the aforementioned sun. I wish I had a blue corduroy Final Destination 2 fisherman hat to help me out……..
Oh, what luck! Thanks to eBay, that is indeed a promotional fisherman hat from the movie Final Destination 2. I’m always amazed at the kind of horror movie promotional items that pop up on there. But anyway, if you are indeed a fan of this movie (to be honest, it was a solid sequel) – then now’s your chance to support it and grab this hat HERE. Starting price of $25 with an option to ‘Make An Offer‘, so that’s always fun. Enjoy and always remember to wear sunscreen and help prevent skin cancer!
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!
