Ebay Find Of The Week: ‘Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight’ Promotional Pin (1995)

I have found myself falling into this collector ‘pin craze’ that’s been going on lately (thanks in large part to Creepy Company), so because of that I also find myself searching eBay from random promotional pins from yesteryear.  And upon a recent search……I found this!


Truth be told, I am a Tales From The Crypt junkie.  I love anything and everything that has to do with the comics, the show, and The Cryptkeeper.  And the movie Demon Knight might be one of my favorite ‘fun’ horror movies ever.  Sooooooo – not a huge surprise that my trigger finger is itchy to snatch up this pin off of eBay.  But before I do, I am going to give you the reader the chance to snatch it up before me because that’s the kind of guy I am.  I care about the horror people.  So, if you would like to grab it like a rabbit, then head on over to the listing HERE and it can be yours for less than $10 (including shipping).  Enjoy, boys and ghouls!

Do You Remember ‘Secrets Of The Cryptkeeper’s Haunted House’?

As a huge fan of the TV show Tales From The Crypt, I was pretty impressed to see the following that it gained and the promotional items and merchandise that it pumped out along the way.  Everything from pinball machines to pre-paid phone cards, The Cryptkeeper was doing business!

In addition to all of that, not only did the show have it’s own spin-off cartoon (Tales From The Cryptkeeper), but in 1996 there was actually a Saturday morning kid’s game show called Secrets Of The Cryptkeeper’s Haunted House.  I feel the title could have been a bit longer.  But anyway, yes – this terrible but entertaining show ran on CBS for only one season and actually did feature The Cryptkeeper (John Kassir).  It also featured a horrible CGI skull named “Digger”.  Pay close attention to how smug some of these kids are too.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Punch To The Face’ From ‘Demon Knight’ (1995)

Believe it or not, punching your fist through someone’s head can have it’s downside.  It might get stuck, and in turn, make your hand very uncomfortable.  Especially when a guardian of a key containing the blood of Jesus Christ is playing a game of cat and mouse with you.

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday where I’m spotlighting one of my favorite horror guilty pleasures of all time:  1995’s, Demon Knight.  My love for this movie deserves it’s own separate post, but I’ll give you a delicious taste with a scene that really kicks things off in the movie.  And that scene would be when Billy Zane’s character puts his fist through the head of the local Barney Fife.  Hilarity ensues as he tries to get it unstuck, and the result is a headless town sheriff.  It happens more often than you think.
