Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Basket Case 2’ Promotional Notepad (1990)

As I grow older, I tend to forget to do things.  It happens, so I try and shrug it off.  But one thing I am always doing to help avoid this, is jot my notes down on a notepad.  The problem is that my current notepads are old and boring.  They have no pizazz or flare to them.  If only I had a promotional notepad from a cheesy horror movie sequel…………


Great Scott!  Is that a Basket Case 2 notepad????  Oh you bet your sweet Belial it is!  It’s amazing what hidden wonders you can find while browsing on eBay.  So yes, that is indeed a promotional notepad for Basket Case 2 from 1990.  The listing says that it’s unused (which is always a plus), and it looks like the bidding is at $9.99 to begin with.  If you feel like you must own this, then head on over HERE and get your bid on.  Or you can just stare at the picture above and be creepy about it.

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Trick ‘R Treat’ Lollipop Props

It’s the middle of April and I’m already posting about Halloween.  There’s nothing wrong with this statement, because it’s never to early to talk about Halloween!  And when I think of this beloved holiday, I think about Trick ‘R Treat, the amazing anthology horror movie given to us in 2007 by writer/director Michael Dougherty.  So who wouldn’t want to own some homemade replica lollipops that Sam carried around in the movie and sometimes murdered people with?


Be careful if you’re thinking that those look delicious, because you can’t eat them.  Unfortunately, they’re not edible unless you have a taste for sculpted resin.  They’re pretty dead on to the real thing from the movie though, which makes them a must have for any real Trick ‘R Treat fan.  Only problem is that they’re going to cost you $75.  I may have just lost a few of you on that price tag, but if you’ve got some deep pockets then head on over to the listing HERE and grab them while you can.  Me personally, I would do it for $50, so maybe the seller will drop the price eventually.  Oh btw – Halloween is only 203 days away!

Ebay Find Of The Week: Promotional Hat From ‘Brain Damage’ (1988)

Well, file this one under ‘random’.  Upon searching for rare horror Ebay items, I came across something from Frank Henenlotter’s (Basket Case, Frankenhooker) 1988 amazing and awesomely bad horror comedy:  Brain Damage.


Good thing I was looking for an obscure promotional somewhat used and dirty white promotional horror movie hat, because I struck gold!  Now let’s all go to the Ebay link HERE and see how much this slice of awesomeness costs. Hmmmmm – $49.99, huh?  Well, that’s a bit too rich for my blood.  But hold on! You’re able to make an offer.  That gives us, the buyer, a little power now.  I would probably go about $20 for this considering the condition it’s in, but maybe your pockets are deeper than mine.  I will say this – you’re probably never going to find a Brain Damage hat ever again on Ebay.  So it does add to the value for sure.  While you mull it over, please enjoy the following NSFW clip below from the movie:

Ebay Find Of The Week: Annabelle Sleeping Mask

I love finding useful things on Ebay.  And nothing to me nowadays is more useful than something to cover my eyes so I don’t have to watch Annabelle again.  And that Ebay item I’m speaking of just so happens to be connected to that shitty movie!  Behold…….the Annabelle sleeping mask!


What a shocker.   It looks just as cheap and slapped together as the movie did. The good news is that if you are having trouble sleeping at night or just want to creep the fuck out of your significant other, it’s a nice little item.  The bad news is that you’d be buying something associated with Annabelle, and for that alone you may be going to hell.  Don’t let me scare you with that assumption though – feel free to head over to the Ebay listing HERE and snag it up for $29.99 or be brave and submit an offer for 25 cents.

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘The Amityville Horror’ 1979 Promotional Night Light

Having trouble sleeping at night?  Afraid of the dark?  Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.  Luckily upon my weekly scouring through the pages of Ebay, I found something to help cure your night terrors and put a hole in your wallet at the same time!


What you’re looking at up there is an actual promotional night light from the original 1979 haunted house flick, The Amityville Horror.  And what better way to give you a better night’s sleep than with a night light from a creepy-ass horror movie about demonic forces that can possess your body?  Now for the price shocker:  this little gem is up on Ebay for $95.  It better damn well come with a possession for that amount of dough.  Maybe you’re a die-hard Amityville Horror fan and can justify that price, or maybe you’re just an avid night light collector and desperately need this to be added to your collection. Whatever the case, if you feel like snatching it up – head on over to the Ebay listing HERE and get it!

Ebay Find Of The Week: Pumpkinhead Coffee Mug

Tired of your old coffee mug?  Have you been craving one that reminds you of a large demonic creature from the depths of hell that comes to exact revenge thanks to a creepy witch summoning him?


If you can’t read or maybe don’t have your glasses on, I’ll tell you what that is. It’s a rare Pumpkinhead promotional coffee mug given out to video shop owners back in 1988 when the movie was released on VHS.  Now even though it doesn’t have the face of the great creature that the late Stan Winston created, it’s still a nice little slice of horror nostalgia, especially if you’re a coffee drinker.  Head on over to the listing HERE on Ebay and ‘Buy It Now’ for a reasonable $17!

Ebay Find Of The Week: Rare ‘Hostel 2’ Promotional Poster

**Warning:  There Will Be Female Nudity Involved In This Post**

That warning up there probably didn’t turn most of you away, so if you’re still with me, let’s get on with the nudity!  Now, I remember seeing a particular promotional poster for 2007’s Hostel: Part 2 back online when the film was released that involved a nude woman holding her own severed head.  Aside from being strangely aroused by this, I thought it was a genius move by Eli Roth on the promotional front.  Problem is, the poster was pretty much banned and extremely hard to find in it’s original form……until now!

Thanks to Ebay and a seller named ‘sassysatellite’, you can own this highly sought after Hostel: Part 2 poster for $134.  I may have just lost some of you with that price announcement, and I would have to agree that it’s a bit steep. Maybe you can message ‘sassysatellite’ and have him or her drop that down to about $100?  Just because they’re sassy, doesn’t mean they have to be unreasonable.  For that price, I think it would be worth it considering this is an original concept poster that you are not going to find very often.  Interested? Then head over HERE if you want to purchase this Ebay Find Of The Week. Ok, I’ve teased you long enough without showing a pic, so feast your eyes below, and gentlemen – go grab some tissues.


Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Creepshow’ Movie Theater Cup

I’m pretty much a Creepshow fiend and whenever I find something on Ebay that has to do with the movie, I get the itchy trigger finger on my computer mouse button.  And although I love what I found this week, I do have to draw the line when the words “minor stains” come into play when describing the item.


What you’re looking at there is a promotional soda cup that was given out at the time that Creepshow was in theaters during it’s 1982 release date.  At first glance, it’s pretty awesome even though it’s just a wax cup.  But then you get a look at the starting bid HERE for $75, and my interest just started to slide.  The seller also confirms there are “minor age stains“, and upon further investigation I could have sworn I saw a rouge hair in the bottom of the cup in one of the pics.  Not really all that appetizing now, especially at $75, but still a cool little item to add to your growing Creepshow collection if you don’t mind stains and random follicles.

Ebay Find Of The Week: Go-Kart Trap From ‘Saw 3D – The Final Chapter’ (2010)

Have you always wanted to own an actual trap from the Saw movie franchise? Do you have $28,518.72 lying around?  If you answered yes to both questions, then today’s your lucky day!

This is actually pretty cool, even though the prop that’s for sale comes from the last Saw movie, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter.  If you’ve seen the movie, then you might remember a ‘dream sequence’ involving Jigsaw’s ex-wife Jill (Betsy Russell) getting plowed into by a nasty little go-kart device.  And that go-kart device is what’s up for sale on Ebay right now!


Now, even though the movie kind of sucked – you have to admit that owning this and having it on display would be pretty sweet.  And the good news is that if you don’t have the full amount being asked ($28,518.72), then you have the option to make an offer.  Twelve people have attempted those offers though, and all have expired.  So if you want to try your luck – head over to the listing HERE and give it a go!  Now let’s watch a clip of that bad-ass killing go-kart in action to give you some buying inspiration, shall we?
