In 1968, George A. Romero established the modern zombie film with his raw and terrifying debut the Night of the Living Dead, one of the most well-regarded and influential horror movies of all time. Now, 50 years after it all began, there’s a new entry into the undying franchise: Day the Dead: Bloodline
Peachfuzz, the friendly wolf 🐺 has informed me that Cavity Colors have released their first licensed collection for the cult horror Creep; including three t-shirt designs, a one size fits most ‘Dad Hat’, and a ‘Peachfuzz’ enamel pin.
“You know, that moment I scared you in the woods? There was murder in your eyes, but it was like… you’re not ready to accept that yet, and I want to encourage you to embrace your inner wolf. So, take the knife, and don’t be afraid to murder…”
Terror Threads has launched a pair of exclusive designs featuring Jen and Sylvia Soska – the twisted twins collectively known as The Soska Sisters – and an exclusive The Houses October Built 2 combo; limited to just 31.
“Appearances are everything.”
Terror Threads has made an impact with their official merchandise for horror genre favorites; both cult classic and modern macabre; continuing their impressive run with new The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Houses October Built collections.
“In the search for the most extreme haunt, the haunt found them.”
The Blair Witch Project is ‘The Cardiff Giant’ of modern horror films. The film employed the now common trope of “found footage” to give an authentic and haunting atmosphere to the story. The movie was also one of the first to use the internet to reinforce the found footage concept, going so far as to hire actors to pose as policemen for interviews and post pictures of artifacts found at the crime scene.
“In October of 1994 three student filmmakers disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland, while shooting a documentary… A year later their footage was found.”
In 1999, the original Blair Witch Project first hit our screens. It seems like a long while ago – the Internet was in its infancy and mobile phones were a still a luxury item. At that point in time it appeared that the horror genre had nothing new to offer in terms of original scares. In 1996, Wes Craven’s Scream had mocked the genre’s stale conventions and spawned a spattering of meta-textual, postmodern imitations with their tongues planted firmly in their cheeks.
