Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2’ Promotional Standee

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth……and an awesome Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 promotional standee!


I had posted a pic of the original order form for one of these standees up on my Facebook page a few months back, and it looks like you could grab one back in 1986 for $19.95 if you acted quickly.  But now it’s almost 2015 and the price has gone up slightly to almost $600.  Fuuuuuuuuuuck.  $600?  Don’t believe me?  Check out the Ebay link HERE.  Now, although I can’t really justify the $600 price tag, at least you do have the option to make an offer.  So for all of you still shopping for that special horror lover in your life, surprise the shit out of them and pick this up – and in the process scare the shit out of them when they walk through the door and see it.

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: 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: ‘The Return Of The Living Dead’ Promo T-Shirt (1985)

Good news for all of my readers who are on the smaller side that love The Return Of The Living Dead!  There are not one, but two actual promo T-shirts from the 1985 horror/comedy up on Ebay right now:


Even though that these shirts are ‘Size Small’ and I have no chance in hell of fitting into one, it’s refreshing to see a shirt up on Ebay from the 80’s that doesn’t have armpit stains.  They have never been worn, and I’m really digging the “More Brains!” script on the front.  I’ll try not to sulk too much about the size, but you might be sulking about the price when you see it over at Ebay right HERE.  Kind of a random ‘Buy It Now’ price of $134.85, but at least you can make an offer and hopefully get one cheaper if you want it that bad. Braaaaaaains!

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: A ‘Re-Animator’ Paperweight

If you’re a fan of rare paperweights and the 1985 classic horror movie Re-Animator, then I’m here to make your Friday even more happy!  That’s right, a few Re-Animator paperweights are up for sale on Ebay that were used to promote the movie for it’s VHS release back in the 1987.  The good news? They’re somewhat rare.  The bad news?  They’re somewhat terrible.


Ok.  Yes, if you’ve seen Re-Animator (and shame on you if you haven’t), then you can figure out that the paperweight is supposed to be Dr. Hill’s severed head in a pan.  Only slight problem is that it doesn’t really look like Dr. Hill.  Or a severed head for that matter.  And the sides are all crooked and disproportionate.  I’m really selling this, aren’t I?  But if you are a true Re-Animator fan and just have to have it, you can head over HERE and Buy It Now for $75!  Seriously?  Ugh, I think the seller needs to lower that price a tad, but Re-Animator is pretty awesome so it might be worth it.  He does state that it was kept in a pet-free home, so that’s comforting to know in case you’re allergic to cats.

Ebay Find Of The Week: Promo T-Shirt From ‘Deep Star Six’

If you’ve been searching for a promotional T-shirt from 1989’s underwater creature feature Deep Star Six, you’re about to be in heaven!  What’s that you say?  You’re only looking for a promotional T-shirt from that other 1989 underwater creature feature, Leviathan?  Oh.  And I see that someone else only wants a promotional T-shirt from the 1998 underwater creature feature, Deep Rising.  Well, tough shit!  Because you only have an opportunity to get one from Deep Star Six.


She’s a beauty.  I know what you’re saying though, for being an Extra Large T-shirt it looks as if a XXX-Large person wore it for a year straight.  Fear not though, because that just means it will be more roomy and comfortable.  Not only that, but the seller makes a note that there are no holes in it!  However, it does come with two small white stains in the front, which is always a high selling point.  He says they don’t seem permanent though.  Whew!  It has a dirty collar, so I guess a courtesy wash is out of the question.  The logo is in good shape though!  But does have some cracking.  If all of that doesn’t sell you, then head over HERE and take a look yourself and grab your Deep Star Six T-shirt before it’s gone.  Only $79.98 if you Buy It Now!
