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 I’ve stumbled across on the internet this week.
So let’s get right to it, shall we?!
In their never-ending quest to turn every iconic character in the history of popular culture into a cute vinyl toy, Funko announced yesterday that they’re soon adding the colorful cast of American Horror Story: Freak Show to their POP! line, bringing folks like Twisty, Pepper, Elsa Mars and the Tattler Twins to our toy shelves for the very first time. And yes, Elsa even includes a mini-figure of the adorable Ma Petite. Expect these bad boys in June.
As much fun as I had watching the first season of FX series The Strain, I honestly didn’t plan on picking up the home video release, as I see little reason to revisit the season – at least for a long time. And then, earlier this week, FX announced this upcoming Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set, which instantly made me rethink that choice. Releasing on June 9th, the set includes all sorts of bonus features and, coolest of all, is housed inside The Master’s head. Don’t want. Need.
Though artist Aaron Crawford used to only sell his own art through his shop Cavity Colors, he’s recently been expanding, and bringing other awesome artists into the mix. Today he released these two brand spankin’ new t-shirts based on Donnie Darko and The Monster Squad, respectively coming our way courtesy of Hillary White Rabbit and Travis Falligant. If you can’t pick a favorite, as doing so is kind of impossible, then just grab both!
Believe it or not, a toy has never been made of Sleepaway Camp‘s Angela Baker, who of course revealed her manhood in one of horror cinema’s most shocking and unforgettable moments. But the fine folks over at Chop Till You Drop have just fixed that with their new line of custom-made ‘Slashback’ toys, which also includes the villains from Prom Night, The Prowler, The Burning and My Bloody Valentine. The quality of the toys is admittedly not that great, though it’s the thought that counts – and with this particular toy, the thought counts a whole lot.
How do I know that 2015 is going to be the best year ever for us horror fans? Because this coming Fall marks the series premiere of Starz’ Ash vs. Evil Dead, which sees Bruce Campbell FINALLY reprising the role of Ash and FINALLY kicking more Deadite ass. On Twitter, the network showed off this poster art as well as a brief promotional trailer earlier in the week, giving us our first taste of the action. Proof that sometimes, things that are too good to be true are actually… true.
Legendary monster-hunter Burt Gummer returns this October in Tremors 5: Bloodlines, the first installment in the fan-favorite series since 2004. Burt teams up with Jamie Kennedy’s Travis Welker to do battle with the Graboids one more time, and word is that some brand new monsters will be coming along for the ride. Over on the official Tremors Facebook page you can help pick the poster/home video art for the sequel, simply by commenting with your favorite. So head over there and vote!
One of the great things about the horror community is that fans are constantly churning out cool products that companies quite frankly would never offer up to us, and my buddy Anthony J. Rapino just put up for grabs a limited run of these handcrafted Baby Freddy Krueger figurines, based of course on Dream Child. Each of the 30 figures sell for $60 and come with individual birth certificates, and you can adopt yours over on Candy Corn Apocalypse.
This last image for the week is one that only fellow wrestling fans will get a kick out of, so my apologies if you’re not one of those. This past Monday night on Raw, Brock Lesnar essentially became a human version of Godzilla and destroyed everyone/everything in his path, leading one clever fan to use him as the inspiration for a Goosebumps book. A true monster story, if there ever was one!
