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.
