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: ‘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.

Find Of The Week: Rare Japanese Promotional Item For ‘Dead Alive’ (1992)

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.
