Ebay Find Of The Week: Promotional Rat From ‘Willard’ (2003)

Well, there’s a first time for everything – and today’s first time is me writing about the killer rat movie Willard, a remake from 2003 of the 1971 original.  And if you ever wondered if there were any promotional rubber rats that were given out to help promote the remake, feast your eyes on this:

Boom!  No, that rubber rat is not playing dead – it’s just flipped over, thanks to the seller on eBay, to let you know that it’s legit.  Gotta love that the website associated with Willard was ‘www.tearhimup.com‘ btw.  Sadly it doesn’t exist anymore.  But yes, this gem of a find is up on eBay right now if you go HERE.  It’s a modest $31 right now, but you can make an offer if you wish.  And rubber rats are always fun to try and play tricks on people that you don’t like.  Sadly, Crispin Glover (the star of the movie) does not come with this promotional product.  But if you would like your Crispin Glover fix, then please watch the clip below and feel free to emulate his funky dance moves……..

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Basket Case 2’ Promotional Notepad (1990)

As I grow older, I tend to forget to do things.  It happens, so I try and shrug it off.  But one thing I am always doing to help avoid this, is jot my notes down on a notepad.  The problem is that my current notepads are old and boring.  They have no pizazz or flare to them.  If only I had a promotional notepad from a cheesy horror movie sequel…………

Great Scott!  Is that a Basket Case 2 notepad????  Oh you bet your sweet Belial it is!  It’s amazing what hidden wonders you can find while browsing on eBay.  So yes, that is indeed a promotional notepad for Basket Case 2 from 1990.  The listing says that it’s unused (which is always a plus), and it looks like the bidding is at $9.99 to begin with.  If you feel like you must own this, then head on over HERE and get your bid on.  Or you can just stare at the picture above and be creepy about it.

Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘House II: The Second Story’ Keychain!

Good thing I’m in the market for a new overpriced 80’s horror movie keychain! Upon searching for keychains on Ebay for some reason, I stumbled upon something so rare…..so special…..so unnecessary…..that I just had to share the good news with you.  Brace yourselves as you gaze upon this promotional keychain from the 1987 horror/comedy, House II: The Second Story!

Oh it’s beautiful, and I’m actually having trouble finding the words to describe such a remarkable specimen.  And it’s even better if you like the color yellow! Now for those who don’t know, House II: The Second Story was a sequel to the entertaining first movie in 1986 called House.  Personally, I didn’t really like the sequel, but I’m sure there are fans out there who will clamor towards this keychain.  But (and it’s a big but), it’s going for $25 on Ebay right now.  There is the option to ‘Make An Offer’, so you have that going for you.  Head on over to the listing HERE and take a look.  I’ll stand back cautiously while the stampede settles down to claim this one……
