Horror Movie Posters I Love: Dolls (1987)

God bless the 80’s.  And God bless 80’s horror movie posters.  In the past when I’ve done this feature, I’m usually more in love with the poster art than I am with the actual movie.  But this time, there’s equal love going around because it’s all about 1987’s underrated Stuart Gordon classic:  Dolls.

I’m not going to gush about the actual movie, which is finally getting a proper Blu-ray release from Scream Factory very soon by the way, but I am going to gush about that poster.  To me, all great horror posters have a great tagline.  And in this case, “They Walk, They Talk, They Kill” is simple, but very effective.  Now let’s talk about the creepy half-skeleton face doll that’s prominent on the print.  If you’ve seen the movie, then you know there’s an equally great sight gag with eyeballs involved.  And for the poster, it definitely grabs your attention and your eyes (obvious pun intended).  Great poster, great movie, and a great way to reminisce about 80’s horror!

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.
