We’ve reached the end of another week – thank god! – which means it’s time to once again take a look at the coolest, weirdest and/or most awesome images that I’ve stumbled across on social media this past week.
So let’s get right to it, shall we?!
It’s been a long time since I’ve laughed at anything Chuck Norris related, as those silly jokes about him being the world’s most badass human being wore out their welcome, a few years back. And so I must give a whole lot of credit to this hilarious mash-up, which serves as a reminder that there’s just something inherently humorous about Chuck Norris, no matter how milked to death those jokes may be!
My friend Gabe LaPeer runs a company called Homemade Horror, where he sculpts unique figures/collectibles of fan-favorite horror characters. What initially drew me to his work were his Karbonite Killers statues, mash-ups between Star Wars and horror films that depict the biggest and best horror icons encased in carbonite. With Jason, Freddy and Ash already under his belt, Gabe released this Pinhead version earlier in the week, which can be purchased for $44, over in the Homemade Horror online shop. An absolute bargain, once you see how impressive these things are in person!
Several horror-themed ‘mystery boxes’ have popped up in recent years, with perhaps the coolest being Rotten Rentals, themed after the VHS boom of the 80s. Unique in the world of mystery boxes, the contents of the Rotten Rentals grab bags are housed inside replica VHS boxes, and you get to choose which box you want your goodies to come in. They recently made available a special Monster Squad VHS pack, which came with this hilarious little item, in reference to the memorable ‘Wolfman’s got nards!’ scene from the film. Thanks to my buddy Garrett Sawai for uploading this picture, which makes me wish I got in on that pack, while it was available!
Fright Rags is celebrating Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘s 40th anniversary with the release of five limited edition t-shirts, which all went up for grabs this morning. Five different artists put their own spin on Leatherface for the designs, my favorite of which is this one, by frequent Fright Rags collaborator Jeff Zornow. There’s just something about Zornow’s style that makes for the absolute coolest horror shirts. Head over to Fright Rags to see all the rest, and pre-order your favorites, which are only available through next Friday morning!
If you’re asking me, those ‘Make Me Pretty’ Barbie heads don’t pose enough of a challenge for kids, as they’re already pretty enough, before anything is even done to them. Now this, this would teach little girls how to use makeup to its full potential! No idea who created this art, but kudos to whoever came up with the clever idea.
Is there a silly bit of subliminal imagery hidden in the awesome promotional poster for this past season of American Horror Story? Squint your eyes and prepare for your mind to be blown!
Last night, director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2) tweeted out this image, which gives us a glimpse at the remake of William Castle’s The Tingler that he was working on, back in 2009. A script was written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (Feast, The Collector) and these storyboards were whipped up by Lynch, though unfortunately the project never got off the ground. Click on the image to super-size it, which will give you a better look at the remake that almost was!
Toy company Amok Time recently picked up a license for both Re-Animator and its sequel, Bride of Re-Animator, and this week they unveiled this upcoming prop replica, of the ‘hand creature’ that Herbert West creates in the whacky sequel. An exact replica of the creature from the movie, this must-own collectible is limited to only 200 pieces and is selling for $99.99. You can pre-order yours over on Amok Time, and it’s set to begin shipping in October.
See ya next Friday, for more awesome imagery!
