“It comes to life!”
In its continuing commitment to provide horror fans with apparel from all eras of the genre, Fright-Rags has released a new Universal Monsters collection featuring The Wolf Man and The Mummy, and collections for two cult favorites from the 1980s: Wes Craven’s Shocker and John Carpenter’s They Live.
“No more Mr. Nice Guy!”
I’m well into my 30’s now. That means I was lucky enough to be in my pre-teens when Fred Dekker was still directing films and TV. He may be known by most people as either the director of the entertaining Night of the Creeps or calamitous Robocop 3, but sandwiched in between these two totally dissimilar yarns was 1987’s The Monster Squad.
The titular “Monster Squad” is a small group of horror-loving kids, led by Sean, who run their affairs from a poster-adorned treehouse.
“You know who to call when you have ghosts. But who do you call when you have monsters?”
Half of what makes a good horror film is a good monster. Without a believable, and ultimately scary, antagonist there’s not much for the audience to latch onto. No film studio – not even the amazing Hammer Films – has ever been able to hold a candle to the classics, and probably wouldn’t have ever existed without the Universal monster movies of the 1930s and 40s.
“Not since the beginning of time has the world beheld terror like this!”
Slasher Pack IX: Monsters includes four Japanese inspired horror tees from Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Mummy and Frankenstein; available for pre-order now!
