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!

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……..

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: ‘The Ruins’ Promotional Tool Kit

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!

s-l1600

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.

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: ‘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: ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street 3’ Freddy Marionette

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!

s-l1600

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……..

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: Prism Vending Machine ‘Toxic Avenger’ Sticker

From time to time, I like to post up ridiculously priced horror-related items that I find on eBay.  This is one of those times.  But who knows – maybe you won’t find the price all that ridiculous, and maybe you’ll even click the ‘Buy It Now‘ button on the listing after you read this?  Especially if you’ve been looking for an 80’s Prism vending machine Toxic Avenger sticker!

s-l500-1

Oh that shiny metallic border is pretty sharp.  Now, I do remember the old school Prism sticker vending machines where you would slide a quarter in and get a surprise sticker from a particular entertainment genre.  Unfortunately, I don’t really remember the horror ones, but you can take a stroll down memory lane HERE and check out what they had to offer.

Now let’s get back to business with this Toxic Avenger sticker that’s up on eBay. Guesses on the price?  $20?  $75?  $100?  Nope, nope, and nope.  Try $200!  Yes, this sticker is up for sale HERE on eBay for $200.  Let that sink in and feel free to watch it and see if someone actually pays that amount.  FYI – you can actually find some of the other Prism horror movie offerings on eBay for a much more reasonable price.

Ebay Find Of The Week: Promotional Rat From ‘Willard’ (2003)

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:

s-l1600-2

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……..
