Fright Rags Just Released Some AMAZING Re-Animator Trading Cards!

Being that I’m officially over-the-hill in age, I have my fair share of memories of collecting trading cards growing up.  And now thanks to the company Fright Rags, I can relive my youth and celebrate one of my favorite horror movies ever at the same time!  Behold, the newly released Re-Animator trading cards!

16108-ReAnimator-Cards-2_1024x1024

So here’s the deal on these:  First of all, go HERE and snatch some up ASAP.  The reason I say that is because these are limited.  There are 3 options you can purchase:  As a single pack (limited to 600), as a factory box (limited to 200), and as a sealed box (limited to 75). Included in each pack are 5 trading cards, 1 chase card, and 1 sticker.  Also randomly included in packs will be an artist sketch card OR an autographed card from Re-Animator star Barbara Crampton!  I would expect these to go pretty fast, so if you’re interested then I wouldn’t hesitate long.

Horror Movie Posters I Love: Hatchet (2006)

I love a movie that knows where it belongs.  And Adam Green definitely knows that his 2006 throwback slasher flick Hatchet (and the sequels for that matter) belongs in the 80’s.  The only problem is that the original poster didn’t exactly have that true 80’s feel, but this one below done by artist Justin Osbourn sure as hell did.

Boing!  Horror boner going on over here.  TMI.  Fright Rags put 250 of these beauties up for sale a while back and all were numbered and signed by Victor Crowley himself, Kane Hodder.  This poster just screams 80’s and is everything that is right in the horror world.  I read that Adam Green was so impressed as well that he would have used it to promote Hatchet during the release.  Bad news is that I see none of these up on Ebay for sale.  The good news is that you can just gaze at it here and get your fix.

Horror Holiday Gifts: ‘A Christmas Gory’ T-Shirt

I know I’m not alone when I say that every time I watch A Christmas Story, I envision Ralphie snapping in the worst way when he tries on Aunt Clara’s pink bunny pajamas.  And now the great horror t-shirt site Fright Rags has brought that vision to life in comfortable 100% cotton form!

Yep.  That is actually a t-shirt.  And it goes on sale this Friday The 13th over at Fright-Rags.Com and in my opinion, is the perfect holiday gift for that horror fan and/or A Christmas Story fan in your life.  It’s a pretty epic product and obviously deserves to have some kind of movie to accompany that epicness.  I only wish that there was a partner shirt featuring our favorite bully that will make you scream ‘Uncle’:  Scott Farkus.  “He had yellow eyes…..so help me God…..YELLOW EYES!

Horror What Ifs: Jason Voorhees G.I. Joe Action Figure

Last year, I was lucky enough to purchase quite possibly the best horror T-shirt ever from Fright Rags that meshed two of my favorite childhood memories together as one.  And those memories would be G.I. Joe and Friday The 13th.  Yep, Fright Rags released a limited edition G.I. Jason T-shirt and I made sure to snag one up!  But what I didn’t intend to snag up in addition, was this mock cardboard packaging that they sent out for a real G.I. Jason action figure:

The detail is amazing and it even comes with a Clearance $4.00 sticker on the top right corner!  Not to mention the fact that it actually looks like the figure was ripped out of the package.  So it really got me to thinking of how cool it would have been to have an actual army of Jasons to battle against Joe and his team, or maybe even team up and take on the evil genius of Cobra Command instead!  And if you flip the cardboard package over, you’ll see some of the other Jason characters that you could use to plan your attack:

I think Sackhead probably would have torn some shit up.  If they can make some horrible Django Unchained action figures, then why not get in the lab and crank out some of these G.I. Jason bad boys?  Kudos to you Fright Rags for stepping up your game and giving every kid who grew up in the 80’s something to hope for when they’re in their 30’s and 40’s.  Yo G.I. Jason!

 

Required Viewing For Halloween: Halloween III: Season Of The Witch (1982)

Here we go.  The Halloween movie that everyone either loves or loves to hate. Halloween III:  Season Of The Witch came out in 1982, but with one small omission. There was no Michael Myers.  What?!!  Blasphemy!!  That’s right kids, no Michael Myers.  Instead, he would be replaced by an evil mastermind of a Halloween mask company called Silver Shamrock who planned on killing millions of kids on Halloween night by placing pieces of a stolen Stonehenge boulder into their Halloween masks! This stuff just writes itself.  Panned by critics as well as fueling outrage from the faithful Halloween moviegoers, this entry into the franchise did poorly at the box office, but slowly started to develop a much deserved cult following.

*jazz hands!*

Yes, I am on the one side of the electric fence that feels that this movie is a guilty pleasure, especially around Halloween time and I’ll gladly burn at the stake for thinking that.   Continue reading

Ladies Of Horror Bowl For Boobies And Take On Domestic Violence!

Two separate great causes are going on right now involving some of our favorite ladies of horror and you can help them out!  First up:  Sean Decker over at Dread Central has put together another team of Horror Starlets for a yearly fundraiser supporting breast cancer awareness aptly named, Bowling For Boobies. Participating this year are:  Cerina Vincent (MoniKa, Cabin Fever), Ashlynn Yennie (The Human Centipede), Allison Kyler (Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2), Brooke Lewis (Slime City Massacre), Sarah Butler (I Spit On Your Grave), Carlee Baker (The Woman) and Barbara Nedeljakova (Hostel), among others.

You can help with a donation, whether it be small or large, by going HERE. And if you’re in the Los Angeles area, you can come out to Jillian’s Hi Life at Universal City Walk on October 21st for the full red carpet and bowling experience, all for a great cause.  Help them reach their goal of $20,000 and help fight breast cancer at the same time!

Next up is something really cool that Fright Rags is doing to help fight and bring awareness to domestic violence.  They’ve joined forces with the “final girls” of the first Friday The 13th movies (Adrienne King, Amy Steel, Dana Kimmell, Kimberly Beck) and had designer Gary Pullin put together this nifty little eight-color screen print poster. Better yet, each print (limited to 175) is personally signed by all four women and is individually numbered!  On top of that, 60% of the profits will be split between four charities that each help the victims of domestic violence.  The prints go on sale September 21st for $89.95 and you can buy them HERE!
