10 Long Lost Horror Products!!

  • MrDisgusting

    I would do anything for Slimer gum. My mom used to have a never ending supply of Ecto Cooler, if I even smell it again I may barf.

    I remember those books! My favorites were always the Godzilla and King Kong ones. Funny how after all these years that love for giant monsters STILL hasn’t gone away.

    I remember coming across the Fright Flicks cards online somewhere, not too long ago. I’ll have to retrace my steps and order some!

  • divisionbell

    Oh man I remember ecto coolers (and slimer gum). Used to have a decent set of the Fright Flick cards too. Man this is nostalgic! I had no idea they made a NOES board game. That’s insane!

    You should add Dinosaurs Attack cards to this list. Those were wonderfully horrific as well.

    So happy I still have my copy of the Creepshow comic. It was so well done.

    “Are kids these days drinking any of their favorite characters’ asses?”

    LOL, you must not have seen this:

    And yes, the straw rotates around so you can drink it out of her backside, or pretend she’s a tranny and drink it from the front.

    I had that freddy doll!….I wish I took care of it

  • Screamz

    Oh this brings back so many memories. I’ve got the Freddy doll and all of the Fright Flicks cards except for #87, which – like the stories on the back – my dog managed to eat without disturbing the other cards…

    I own the Freddy boardgame. Never played it though.

    The Crestwood book about Godzilla was the first book I ever read, and the one about King Kong was maybe the second! Of course, remembering back, that Godzilla one had a LOT of factual inaccuracies, but was still an awesome thing to read right as I was learning how to do so. Still love Godzilla to this day. Also, that Slimer gum tasted awesome!

    • horror_geek1331

      You just brought a memory back! I remember reading something in the King Kong book about there being two different endings in King Kong vs Godzilla. One where King Kong won in the US and Godzilla won in Japan. I believed that for years because of that book!

    Fright Flicks cards were awesome. Last summer I found a bunch at a local flea market. Dude was selling a bunch of Fright Flicks, Garbage Pale Kids and Dinosaurs Attack! cards.

  • Zombie-Killa

    A Nightmare On Elm Street video game????? Damn, if my NES was still working, I would go out of my way to track down a copy on Ebay or somewhere else.

    Oh, and I LOVED the Ecto Coolers as a kid.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I really want that Nightmare board game. And the Gremlins cereal. XD

  • Joe-Banger

    I had the Creep Show comic book back when I was in first grade! Damn! Good article here.

    My school library carried ALL those Crestwood books. There was a purple covered batch of them too. Great stuff for a burgeoning horror fan like myself back in the day.

    I remember back in the 60’s there was a film viewer that was hand-cranked and it used cards about the size of matchbooks. You would fold them in half and then insert them into slots on a ferris wheel type thing. It was encased in a round plastic canister, about three inches wide, something like a movie reel would be housed in. You’d look through a two inch by two inch opening and you’d crank the handle on the side and the inserted cards would flip one at a time like and old-fashioned cartoon, creating motion. But there were actual movie scenes from the classic universal monsters: Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman, The Creature, etc.
