Before Peter Jackson was doing some crap called the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, he was making what quite possibly the bloodiest, goriest, most enjoyable horror/comedy ever called Dead Alive a.k.a. Braindead in 1992. But even before that, he had a bad taste in his mouth in 1987. And that bad taste was a sci-fi/horror/action/comedy hybrid called…..Bad Taste! I still don’t know what the hell is going on when I watch it, but I know that I like it. And now someone has actually made a Bad Taste action figure based on the character Lord Crumb!
Yeah – that’s for real. Goodleg Toys just put these up today, so if you act quick you might still be able to grab one. Only 10 of the regular version were made (pictured above) and there were 5 ‘green border’ variants made as well with a different overall color. Obviously since there are only 15 total, these are rare and will make a great addition to your Bad Taste collectible roster. Not sure what that would consist of, but it’s a great addition nonetheless. The regular version is going for $65 and the variant is $70. Head on over HERE and see if there’s any left to pick up. And while you’re at it, go blow up a sheep with a rocket launcher.
Aside from having a fear of mayonnaise, I also have a striking fear of having somebody shove their fingers literally into my face. A strange fear, I know, but that’s why this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday is all the more personal to me.
If you’ve never seen Peter Jackson’s bloody brilliant Dead Alive (aka Braindead), then you shouldn’t be reading any horror sites anymore. Your privileges have been revoked. But if you’re like me and have seen a couple hundred times, then maybe one of your favorite scenes is when the nurse gets a face full of Mum’s fingers. Watch below and enjoy the deadly digit demise. Try saying that 5 times fast.
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.
