Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Terror In The Aisles’ Promotional Skull! (1984)

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!

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!

Did You Know That There Was A ‘Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh’ Board Game?

Who loves board games??!!  And who loves board games that are based off of subpar horror movie sequels??!!  Well then do I have some good news for you.  In a random search for horror-themed games, I stumbled across this:


That’s right.  You’re looking at a promotional board game based on Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh that came out in 1995.  Now, even though I wasn’t crazy about the movie – I have to admit that this looks pretty cool.  Of course it could be a complete waste of time and utter horse shit, but at least it looks like they took some time on the design.  Here’s a brief synopsis of what it’s all about:

As you travel the streets of New Orleans looking for pieces of the puzzle to solve the Candyman Murder mysteries you have to make sure you do not become a victim yourself. To win, player must proceed clockwise along the streets of New Orleans and get to the Mansion with the key card in order to unlock the secret to Candyman’s power.


Not sure if this would be a game to gather the whole family around on a Friday night to play, but it definitely might be a game to get your friends together and drink heavily while you try to unlock the secret to Candyman’s power.  If you’re intrigued by the premise of the game and of the pics above, I have good news for you!  There is one up for sale on Ebay HERE right now.  I would imagine you might be able to walk away with it for no more than $50.  A small price to pay for an enjoyable piece of horror memorabilia.  Oh that’s right – I don’t know if it’s enjoyable or not.  Forgot I said it could be utter horse shit.  Up to you to take the gamble I guess!

Find Of The Week: Rare Japanese Promotional Item For ‘Dead Alive’ (1992)

It pains me to not be able to put the ‘Ebay’ in front of ‘Find Of The Week’ for this post today, because that means what I’m about to talk about is sadly not for sale at the moment.  Upon searching for photos of Peter Jackson’s classic gorefest Dead Alive (aka Braindead) yesterday, I stumbled across a legit picture of a randomly amazing promotional item for the Japanese release of the 1992 film on VHS.  Thanks to Ghoul Basement for the info, below is a pic of an inflatable version of the maniacal face-ripping baby that you apparently could have owned if you lived in Japan.

Easily one of the best promotional movie items I’ve ever seen.  But it’s such a tease!  The tease being because you basically can’t find one and I would imagine that if one of these babies showed up on Ebay, they would go for a pretty price.  So unfortunately, all we can really do is just stare at the pic and imagine what it would be like to have a creepy inflatable Dead Alive baby in our possession.  Just don’t stare at the pic too long, because then not only is the inflatable Dead Alive baby creepy, but you are too.


Rare Promotional Annabelle Dolls From ‘The Conjuring’ Up On Ebay…..For A Price

With February 14th almost right around the corner, it’s never too early to start shopping for that perfect Valentine’s gift for your significant other.  And if you’d like to scare the shit out them this year, I have the perfect gift for you!

For those who have seen The Conjuring, you know that the Annabelle doll only inhabits a small portion of the movie, but is creepily effective for that short amount of time. So much so, that it’s getting it’s own spin-off movie as a reward for that creepiness.  And apparently, to celebrate the recent Blu-ray release of The Conjuring, a rare 12-inch replica of the Annabelle doll was being sold along with the disc. As far as promotional items go for movies, this one’s pretty sweet.  Only problem is that it’ll cost you to grab one off of Ebay.


There are only about three of these up right now for sale, so you can understand the rarity, with the ending price usually being around $200.  A small price to pay for something that can freak out anyone who comes into your home.  If you’re interested, I’m providing a link to one of them HERE!
