Dirty Horror Memory Lane: ‘Hellraiser’ Watch & Wear Promotion (1988)

Ok.  Time to show my age again.  Remember VHS tapes that you used to watch movies on?  They went into this contraption called a VCR.  And if you rented a VHS copy of a movie from your local video store, you were supposed to always be kind and rewind.  But before you could rewind, on certain movies there would be something called ‘Watch & Wear‘, and if you were smart you would have had your wallet ready back then.  ‘Watch & Wear‘ was a special promotional addition before and after the movie that would allow you to purchase memorabilia from the movie you just watched.  And the one movie that I remember most that had this option, was none other than Hellraiser!

Goddammit.  I knew I should I gotten that satin Hellraiser jacket when I had the chance back in 1988.  Now it’s just a pipe dream.  Truth be told, I would have gotten the T-shirt, jacket, coffee mug, and the gym bag for sure.  And my flipper mentality knows that these would be worth a lot more than what I would have paid for them back then.  Good luck trying to track down any of the items located in the ‘Watch & Wear‘ promotion, but if you do find the satin jacket – please make sure to contact me ASAP.
