Today, when we refer to modern horror icons we still mention the now decades old Michael Myers from John Carpenter’s Halloween, Freddy Kruger from Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and Jason Voorhees from Sean S. Cunningham’s Friday the 13th. This is testament to their popularity, that has arguably surpassed that of both Universal and Hammer’s horror creations. It is perhaps then surprising to horror newcomers that the character of Jason is notably absent for the majority of the original Friday the 13th.
Fright-Rags have a treat for you… A new collection dedicated to Trick ‘r Treat, and a Friday the 13th Part III t-shirt; available only for 24 hours on Friday the 13th. Also, relive your childhood with three new t-shirts designed by Abrar Ajmal and Coki Greenway, based on three Halloween family favorites: 1993’s Hocus Pocus, 1986’s The Worst Witch (featuring Tim Curry), and ‘The Disney Sunday Movie’ Mr. Boogedy.
“It’s just a bunch of hocus pocus!”

“What have you done to him? What have you done to his eyes, you maniacs!”

Based on the Manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note is a huge franchise in Japan. The Netflix remake rather misses the entire message of the original Death Note – which is that power corrupts. It barely touches on the themes that gave the original depth and intrigue and lacks its tension-building storytelling, which left the viewer wondering where the latest development might lead, and who would win. It’s the version for people who can’t cope with subtitles.
“Every human spends the last moments of his life in the shadow of a death god.”
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the deluxe soundtrack re-press of George A. Romero and Stephen King’s seminal 1982 horror-anthology classic, Creepshow; along with six large vibrant and detailed 1.75″ Creepshow enamel pins; designed by Ghoulish Gary Pullin.
“Where’s… my… cake? I… want… my… cake!”
Tobe Hooper was one of the most influential horror directors of all time. His vision and intelligence can be seen in almost every slasher and splatter film over the last forty years and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is Hooper’s masterpiece.
Originally conceived as a faux film “based on true events”, Hooper did draw inspiration from the story of Ed Gein, a murderer, grave robber who had a predilection for a number of other unsavory character traits.
“What happened is true. Now the motion picture that’s just as real. Once you stop screaming, then you’ll start talking about it.”

Olaf Ittenbach is a German auteur who is a combination of Tom Savini and Takashi Miike. Originally a dental technician, Ittenbach then became a top notch SFX artist, his most notable credit being for BloodRayne by Uwe Boll.
Along with Boll, he is part of the German new wave bringing media attention to their underground films specializing in rape, necrophilia and extreme violence. Ittenbach’s films focus on pain, body destruction and gore, preferably as much that can be jammed into a two hour film.
“Breaking up is so very hard to do…”
Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell pays tribute to the enduring spirit of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead series, and meshes the SFX style of Nobuhiko Obayashi’s cult horror Hausu (1977). Evil Dead and Asian horror fanatics, or anyone else with any interest in the splatter subgenre should own this movie!
Do you want to get your severed hands on this Japanese curiosity? Attack from Planet B and Terror Cotta have three copies of Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell available on DVD to giveaway.
