Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! As many of you probably already know, that means Black Friday is right around the corner. While stores aren’t necessarily as packed as they used to be thanks to online deals and events like Cyber Monday, Black Friday is nonetheless a very stressful and busy day for some people. There are just so many deals out there! I don’t know about any of you, but I choose to stay out of the brick-and-mortar stores and stick to online shopping in my pajamas at my home. Here is a list of some of the must-have horror toys that we think you should consider purchasing this Black Friday!
Penny Dreadful CLUE (Penny Dreadful)
If you’ve never watched Penny Dreadful, you’re really missing out, but that’s an argument for another post. Showtime has gifted us with a Penny Dreadful game of Clue, and it couldn’t be more glorious. You know how Monopoly has a bunch of different editions themed after different movies, shows and themes? Parker Bros. should really do that with Clue and horror movies. They’ve got a Simpsons edition and even a Big Bang Theory edition, but it would probably boost sales put out more horror-themed editions.
Mina Murray has been killed and the murderer remains at large– lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. In this classic mystery game of CLUE: Penny Dreadful, it’s up to you to uncover the clues and find out WHO killed Mina, WHERE they killed her, and with WHAT weapon. Was it Dorian Gray with a Syringe at the London Zoo? Or was it Vanessa Ives in Ferdinand Lyle’s Mansion with Arsenic? 6 Suspects: Vanessa Ives, Sir Malcolm Murray, Dorian Gray, Brona Croft, Ethan Chandler and Victor Frankenstein Custom Sculpted Weapons: Pistol, Syringe, Tarot Cards, Arsenic, Handkerchief, and Sword Cane Beautifully illustrated game board represents locations from the show set in 1891 London Movers & Personality Cards Intrigue Cards – 24 card deck comprised of 16 action cards and 8 tarot cards Clue Sheet & Envelope Instructions
If you’ve got an hour to spare and at least two friends nearby, play this game. There are fifty different ways the game can play out and they all involve some truly horrific events. It’s a must-have party game for any horror fan.
From the Manufacturer:
The creak of footsteps on the stairs, the smell of something foul and dead, the feel of something crawling down your back – this and more can be found in the exciting refresh of the Avalon Hill favorite Betrayal at House on the Hill. This fun and suspenseful game is a new experience almost every time you play – you and your friends explore “that creepy old place on the hill” until enough mystic misadventures happen that one of the players turns on all of the others. Hours of fun for all your friends and family. Designed for 3–6 players aged 12 and up, this board game features multiple scenarios, a different lay-out with every game, and enough chills to freeze the heart of any horror fan.
Bat Gremlin (Gremlins 2: The New Batch)
This guy won’t be in stock on Amazon until March, so now is your chance to pre-order it before they sell out!
One of the most requested Gremlins figures of all time is finally here! Our latest deluxe action figure from Gremlins 2: The New Batch is the spectacular Bat Gremlin, with a massive wingspan of nearly 18 inches. This detailed re-creation of the puppet seen in Gremlins 2 is fully articulated, including hinged ears, hinged jaw, and jointed arms that allow the wings to spread open and fold closed! At approximately 6 inches tall, it’s perfectly in scale with our previous Gremlins action figures, too. Comes with a “flight” display stand.
Freddy Krueger Potato Head (A Nightmare On Elm Street)
If you’re a horror fan with kids, then this is the perfect present for them! They even have a Jason one. Who says you can’t start ’em early?
Life-Size Xenomorph Egg (Alien)
This one is a real steal at only $600 on Amazon! In all seriousness though, it’s a pretty nifty toy. If you’ve got the cash, this would make for a fantastic addition to your home décor.
Transform any room into a deadly alien breeding ground with this Life Size Xenomorph Egg — complete with its own eerie lighting and life size facehugger! As seen in the 1986 horror classic Aliens, this full-sized replica stands almost 36” tall, and articulated flaps with a wire armature allow you to actually open the top folds of the egg. The included full-size facehugger has a bendable tail, so you can pose it anywhere… waiting to drop on unsuspecting prey from overhead, or simply lurking inside the egg. The Life Size Xenomorph Egg is made of detailed, hand-painted foam and stands on its own. A switch activates the LED lights inside the base to create a menacing, otherworldly glow effect. Requires 3 AAA batteries, not included.
Friday the 13th 25th Anniversary Boxed Set (Friday the 13th)
This guy is about 10 years old, so he’s a little pricey. You can buy him on Amazon though. The set comes with sack-head Jason from Friday the 13th Part 2, along with Mrs. Voorhees and her severed head.
8-Bit Jason (Friday the 13th)
From Toys on Fire:
Based on his appearance in the classic Friday the 13th video game, released in 1989 for the popular 8-bit home console, Jason stands 7″ and has over 25 points of articulation for great poses. The figure comes with machete, axe, harpoon gun and removable mask, plus new mother’s head accessory. New paint deco reproduces the game’s pixilated look. And not only does the window box packaging re-create the look and feel of the classic video game cartridge box, lift the front flap and it plays music from the game, too!
Jason Mug (Friday the 13th)
This mug is a magic mug. It gets a picture as it gets hotter! It makes for a perfect gift for any coffee (or tea) drinkers out there!
From Entertainment Earth:
Prepare for the day everyone fears…with a nice, warm cup of coffee. This 11 oz. Friday the 13th Jason Voorhees Morphing Mug transforms from black to full color as hot liquid is added! Watch as the heat-activated process reveals a hidden image of Jason in vivid colors. Hand wash only. Not safe for dishwasher or microwave. Measures approximately 3 3/4-inches tall x 3 1/8-inches in diameter.
These adorable figurines will make an excellent addition to your horror-comedy shelf. Wait, you don’t have one of those? Well time to make one, and what better way to start with these guys?
Freddy Krueger Syringe Glove (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors)
Freddy’s razor glove gets all the attention, but there was a time when he turned his razor hands into syringes, and it was awesome. Now you can get the replica of that glove and show up your friends who dressed as mere regular ol’ Freddy Kruegers on Halloween!
From Entertainment Earth:
