Punch Button has scheduled a Mortal Kombat arcade tournament, which our four inebriated protagonists plan to dominate! But first, they’ll need more alcohol for their inevitable victory celebrations! It was a culture they believed would never end; getting drunk, getting high, and mastering Scorpion’s six-button ‘Fatality’. And yet tonight, these four friends would soon find themselves taking on the undead; struggling to survive in this horrifying George A. Romero-style nightmare.
“Tranquility stood strong while embracing a culture they believed would never end.”

Fright-Rags honors the glory days of VHS with apparel from two Vestron Video cult classics – Return of the Living Dead III and The Gate – plus Fangoria merch commemorating the beloved horror magazine’s 40th anniversary.
“There’s a passageway – A gate behind which the demons wait to take back what was once theirs.”
Fright-Rags’ latest releases are all about the end of the world. Whether it’s at the hands of aliens, zombies, or creatures, prepare for the apocalypse with apparel from Mars Attacks, Day of the Dead, and A Quiet Place.
“Nice planet. We’ll take it!”
Fright-Rags digs up new merch from two of the most beloved zombie films of all time – Dan O’Bannon’s The Return of the Living Dead and George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead – along with an official t-shirt for genre favorite Barbara Crampton.
“Send… more… paramedics.”
Shed of the Dead is a zombie thriller, from director Drew Cullingham. One part Shaun of the Dead and one part 28 Days Later, the film follows two slackers, who whittle their days away playing Dungeons & Dragons, painting figurines, and dreaming of their fantasy hero, the battle mage Casimir the Destroyer. As life pressures build up for Trevor and his agoraphobic friend Graham, events take an unexpected turn, when the undead turn up in their little gardening spot. Now, it is a fight for survival, in a real zombie apocalypse – this May!
“An unlikely hero’s tale of blood, sweat, and shears!”
Written and directed by Shinichiro Ueda, One Cut of the Dead begins with an impressive 37 minute long take set in an abandoned Japanese water filtration plant. “It’s just an urban legend… On record, this place was built for water filtration. But the Japanese army used here for some sort of experimentation… Human experimentation. Like…bringing the dead back to life.” Shinichiro Ueda’s movie injects the zombie trope with new life; thus reanimating the sub-genre. This is not Dawn of the Dead, nor is it Shaun of the Dead. Instead, One Cut of the Dead celebrates low-budget filmmaking.
“Making a zombie movie, on a live broadcast, in one take?”
One Cut of the Dead opens in a run-down, abandoned warehouse where a film crew are making a zombie film… Yet, this is no ordinary warehouse. It’s been said that this warehouse is the site where military experiments once took place…
“Don’t stop shooting!”
Fright-Rags has explored sour ground to unearth new merchandise from Pet Sematary, Night of the Living Dead and Die Hard. If that wasn’t enough Fright-Rags have also created Dead Neighbors, a short film that imagines what may have inspired George A. Romero as a young boy.

Waxwork Records is honored to present the 50th anniversary edition release of the original motion picture soundtrack to George A. Romero’s horror classic, Night of the Living Dead; and The Haunting of Hill House music from the Netflix horror series by The Newton Brothers.
