While National Space Day (May 3) is usually dedicated to the extraordinary achievements, benefits and opportunities in the exploration and use of space, as a horror lover you absolutely must dedicate your first Friday of May to all your killer favorite, intergalactic franchises that have abducted your creep-tastic heart over the years. That being said, aside from binge-watching out-of-this-world movies and TV shows you could use this day as an opportunity to browse the web and start adding to your vivid compilation of horror collectibles.
The Star Wars franchise
Not only is today National Space Day but tomorrow is coincidentally enough, Star Wars Day, so, it only seems appropriate to let the force awaken with some extraterrestrial Star Wars merchandise. Why not start by dressing up as your favorite unique franchise character? After all, there is no set calendar day to tell you to join the wise Jedi master Yoda or Darth Vader’s dark side… although getting prepared early for the ultimate Halloween costume is never a bad idea. While you’re at it, why not top off your celestial purchase with a durable lightsaber and a fearsome costume for your canine pal? The deals are strong with this one!
The Alien franchise
Although this cosmic, interstellar space series is not quite as popular as Star Wars, it’s arguably one of the most terrifying franchises in horror history. That’s why it deserves to be a part of your collection! As someone who can’t get enough when it comes to gathering a number of gruesome and petrifying keepsakes, it seems rather fitting that an assortment of Alien franchise items should be made a part of your spook-tacular assemblage. So, regardless of whether you’re more of a fan of Xenomorphs or Neomorphs, there are plenty of otherworldly horror collectibles that would make frightful additions to your ever-growing collection.
The Killer Klowns from Outer Space
This wacky film plays on two very common fears, clowns and aliens. While the movie is not super well known to mainstream moviegoers, the fearsome gang of killer clowns is about as creepy and common as they come in the horror world. Especially with their objective is to invade, kidnap and kill human inhabitants in order to consume their flesh. Needless to say, no out-of-this-world compilation could ever be complete without the faces of Slim, Fatso, Klownzilla or shorty as gruesome, unique horror collectibles.
