It’s that time of year when people line up outside of department stores to maul each other while the poor bastards working in retail wish they were home with their families. Tis the season for Black motherfucking Friday.
My biggest conundrum is that while I loathe the barrage of sales-happy lunatics this time of year, I also love spending dough. Especially on myself (c’mon, we’re all friends here, let’s be honest). Luckily there’s plenty of sweet online deals this Black Friday weekend to satisfy the most rabid horror fans. So if you’ve been holding out on that pricey Blu-ray box set, action figure, or shirt, bust out the plastic and tear it up. Then when you click that “Place Order” button, sit back and relax while all those suckers inside Best Buy trample one another.
Black Friday happens to coincide this year with a Barnes & Noble 50% Criterion Collection sale. While this earth-shattering event happens like three times a year, it’s still cool to be reminded of all the wicked horror flicks Criterion has put out that can be picked up for 50% off (so it’s like the normal price of Blu-ray). If you haven’t yet, pick up their pristine releases of The Uninvited, The Innocents, House, Eyes Without a Face, and slew of other great horror movies.
For Black Friday, Amazon’s dropped the price on a boat load of horror box sets, including The Twilight Zone complete series (over 70% off!), the Universal Monsters set (half off!), the highly underrated Thriller: The Series, the 40th anniversary Blu of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and the Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection (over half off!).
Check out all of Amazon’s horror deals here! There’s a lot of season Blu-rays on sale for shows like True Blood, Hannibal, American Horror Story, and more.
Entertainment Earth has been holding daily deals leading up to Black Friday, with a “doorbuster deal” promised the day of. As I’m writing this a few days early, I have no clue what door this deal will be busting, but sniff around their website Friday to find out. They are gonna be throwing down sales ALL weekend, through the first week of December, so keep watch! They sell a lot of silly shit on that site, but hopefully they’ll have deals on the painfully awesome Reaction figures line.
For our high net worth readers, Gentle Giant is holding a 30% off sale through Sunday, Nov. 30th. If you’ve been waiting for a sweet deal on a Daryl Dixon mini-bust, this is your moment!
A bunch of Walking Dead and other McFarlane toys are on sale for Black Friday over at Amazon (yes, I’m an Amazon whore).
Fright Rags is throwing down a Black Friday sale, though at the time of writing this their site is down while they update their inventory. I always kick myself for missing out on their stuff, maybe Friday night I should get my shit together.
For the season, they’re releasing some AMAZING Christmas shirts like “Clark’s Revenge” (a Christmas Vacation x Friday the 13th mash-up, “A Christmas Gory” (Ralphie from A Christmas Story on the hunt), and “Abominable Snow Massacre” (takedown of the classic Rankin/Bass stop-motion classics). Fright Rags’ gear is wicked limited so ACT FAST!
