The best part is that the first movie is already in the works.

Halloween Kills (2020) 

Filming for “Halloween Kills” began early this month, placing it in theatres for October 16, 2020. The final scene from last year’s film ends with Laurie’s home engulfed in flames and a focused shot of the burnt basement containing Michael. Although, if you waited around for the credits to finish rolling you would have noticed the intense breathing, confirming that the infamous serial killer likely survived the events of the film — and that’s where “Halloween Kills” begins. How do we know that exactly? Well, you can thank Jamie Lee Curtis’ Instagram feed. One of the photos that she posted features her all bruised and beaten up. In fact, if you look closely at her injuries in the final scene of the reboot, the two are uncanny.

Halloween Ends (2021)

Since we don’t have the official plot and have only seen some online speculations, there isn’t really much to say about the final movie in the trilogy, “Halloween Ends”, other then we know that it will premiere a year later, on October 15, 2021. 

Needless to say, while there isn’t a lot of information floating around at the moment, here at Nightmare Toys we’re incredibly excited and have ordered more Michael Myers horror collectibles to celebrate his undying return to the big screen.

What horror villain matches your personality?

Posted on

Naturally, as a fan of the macabre, there has probably been a time that you’ve wanted to place yourself in the shoes of your favorite horror villain. Whether you relish in the appalling idea of stabbing the back of your enemies, teaching the unworthy a lesson or simply dabbling in a little foul play, it’s hard not to admire the chilling personalities of the most fearsome foes in the genre. So, hold on to your hellish hats if you want to unchain yourself to find out which sociopath best exuberates your hair-raising characteristics. After all, wouldn’t it be ghoul putting horror collectibles on display that haunt your charm?

Michael Myers

If you’re a hair-raising ghoul who lacks emotions and is rather unimpressed by mankind in general, you may find that you can relate to some of the eerie-sistable qualities of Michael Myers. While many would describe this horror legend as a horrendous beast, we would define him as an empowering and patient man, as he often becomes fixated on things, but never lets his obsession take control. That being said, this menacing monster is also known for possessing superhuman strength, endurance and stealth-like movement. So, maybe you’re also a quiet, athletic soul?

Jason Voorhees

Those who are fans of hockey, swimming or the great outdoors, in general, have no problem finding connections to the personality of Jason Voorhees. So, whether you find spending time in nature to be soothing or you just enjoy keeping to yourself, there are so many relatable reasons to bond with this horror icon. Not to mention his quiet, subtle movements make him rather unpredictable, while also possessing an unstoppable desire to achieve his goals — murdering all those naughty campers. Does any of this sound relatable to your inner villain?

Leatherface

Chucky

For the devilish folks who are part scandalous and a tad bit threatening, you may best relate to the unnerving personality of Leatherface. Artistically inclined with an eye for fashion and design, the delicate craftsmanship that goes into sewing human skin should never go unnoticed. Nevertheless, if your human skin lamps and skeleton chairs are contributing to your misunderstood nature, this outback killer may be the one that pumps your dark, black heart.

If you’re anything like this voodoo-chanting, sinister doll then you’re likely the life of the party. Just like how each Chucky horror collectible is full of spunk and dirty jokes, you probably also take pride in your say-it-like-it-is personality. So, although his crude way of handling things can sometimes get him into trouble, it’s entirely relatable. So, bring on your extrovert nature and embrace your inner Chucky!

Slay the beach with these horror must-haves

Posted on

With sweltering, scorching weather on the rise, it can only mean that there will soon be a revelation of fiery, apocalyptic destruction. Although this would set the scene for a rather spooky and ominous horror film, the boiling heat simply means that summer is creeping up on us. That being said, there’s nothing more horror-ific than being sullen and unprepared for the outburst of seasonal possibilities. So, whether you’re the type of soul who enjoys crafting satanic symbols using sidewalk chalk, roasting a tasty treat over an open flame or simply constructing a devilishly frightening fortress out of the sand, your black heart will need a few spooktacular horror accessories in order to bring out the darkness in your seasonal endeavors.

Horror beach towels

Let’s face it when you’re cursed with a long winter and a rainy spring the pigment of your skin turns pale like a ghost. So, it’s about time for you to get your boo-ty to the beach and crisp up a bit! However, if you’re the type of ghoul who’s wanting to be the most alarming apparition on the boardwalk, you’ll need to get your claws on one of our signature, eerie-sistable horror beach towels. Choose from an assortment of franchise favorites, including, Ghostbusters, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street. Now you can haunt your style and personality while laying and resting on these high-quality must-haves. But be careful… the eyeballs of jealousy may have grim consequences.

Horror books

For those of you who melt when you’re exposed to direct sunlight, it makes sense for you to want to cloak up under a wide umbrella and relish in tales of the occult. That being said, we’ve got a few other enchanting reads that might jerk your horror crank. So, why not dive into the chilling biography of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, test your divine knowledge of necromancy with the Evil Dead Army of Darkness Necronomicon Journal or simply learn about what it’s like to crossover with the Handbook for the Recently Deceased?

A ghastly behind the scenes look at the Hellraiser franchise

Posted on

With ten films, a collection of books, various comic adaptations and even an assortment of creep-tastic horror collectibles, the Hellraiser franchise has kept us chained with devilish delight since 1987. That being said, aside from tearing your way through the brilliant novella, The Hellbound Heart, how many gruesome, gory facts do you really know about the making of the Hellraiser franchise? Well, how about we shed some light on it?

Clive Barker was not fond of the name Pinhead

In his novel, Barker refers to his character as “Priest” or “Lead Cenobite”, however, the makeup crew actually came up with the name “Pinhead” partially due to his eclectic prosthetics and also as a means to distinguish him from the other Cenobites. So, even though the writer and director disliked the unimaginative name, it stuck amongst the horror genre as the franchise grew in popularity.

S&M was a huge inspiration

It’s pretty obvious that the Cenobites embellish many elements of sadism and masochism — leather spandex, chains and hooks… not to mention the interlinkage of pain and pleasure — but the real fun fact is that Barker took inspiration by spending time in some seedy hotspots in New York and Amsterdam. Now that we mention it, don’t you think the Cenobites look like the members of a punk rock band?

Pinhead was inspired by Dracula

The standard 80s horror villain consisted of weapon-wielding slasher, aimlessly targeting anyone who happened to cross their path. Whereas, Pinhead was rather unique being that he was more intelligent, philosophical and in some cases more classy than traditional horror movie lore. Does this description remind you of anyone? Maybe the aristocratic charm of Dracula perhaps?

It was originally banned in Canada

Despite numerous sexual scenes already being scrapped from the movie, the original film struggled to make it into Canadian theatres. In fact, New World Motion Pictures of Canada had to remove a torture scene featuring hooks pulling apart a body and face, as well as a scene that show rats squirming while nailed to a wall — 40 seconds of trimming later and the horror movie was given an R rating.

Who are the most ruthless horror villains in the genre?

Posted on

While there are tons of notable villains who have crept their way into our horror lovin’ hearts over the year, not all these grotesque antihero’s get the same grueling recognition for their blood-curdling scares. That’s why we wanted to shed some moonlight on a few creepy mischief-makers who’re devilish, defiant and possess a rather impressing body account. So, let’s take a look at a couple of bone-afide killers who deserve an extra round of gruesome applause.

Hannibal Lecter

Regardless of whether you’ve seen The Silence of the Lambs, chances are that you’ve heard of Hannibal Lecter, an iconic name in the horror genre. While many people nowadays are desensitized to the idea of a cannibalistic serial killer, the truth is this ruthless character was actually based on a real-life doctor who was convicted of murdering and chopping up his lover. How’s that for a frightful fact? Needless to say, while most killers tend to follow the gore-fest and blood trail of timeless classic slashers such as Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, though, Hannibal Lector takes on a grim new role — a highly intelligent, mannered man who could just as easily be your next-door neighbor. Known for punishing and mutilating his victims, who wouldn’t want to have horror collectibles resembling this fearsome foe?

Leatherface

This unhinged sociopath is rather fond of chasing innocent bystanders and if we tallied up his misdemeanors through the entire Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, he has managed to strike a body count of over 60 people. Now, that’s a lot of new faces! Needless to say, although Leatherface has kept our hearts pumping through the decades with his frightening facades of chainsaw-wielding suspense, we think that he deserves some extra recognition. After all, it must be incredibly tough to rundown your victims carrying a heavy-weighted chainsaw! So, as a way to honor his intense, otherworldly horror sequences, we’re selling a wide selection of horror collectibles to enable fans to enact their own sequels.  

Jeepers Creepers

No one really knows where this ancient, mysterious demon came from, but we do know that once he picks up the scent of his prey, nothing with stop his relentless, indestructible pursuit to get his claws on them. Essentially, the creeper is immortal and he’s always on the hunt for some new organs to replace his old failing ones. His undying nature and everlasting abilities make him a rather ruthless horror villain that you wouldn’t want to get caught spying on. So, that’s why he made our list! As merciless and frightening as the creeper is, real horror lovers won’t be able to taste the fear, but they can’t help but wonder where he got his peepers.

Which iconic puppet heightens your Pupaphobia?

Posted on

While there are many thrilling reasons why people watch countless spine-chilling horror films the intoxicating element of fear is probably the most electrifying push. Phobias have a riveting way of making our hearts tremble and whether you’re addicted to that gripping feeling or it leaves you feeling unpleasant, the reality is that the horror genre has the ability to prey on our emotional imperfections. So, while we’re on the topic, how many of you suffer from Pupaphobia?

What is pupaphobia?

This insufferable fear means that you’re deeply terrified of puppets, although it can also be used to refer to the fear of ventriloquist dummies, animatronic creatures, wax statues or simply anything that represents a being that appears to have feelings or perceptions.

What are some of the causes?  

In general, phobias usually arise from a combination of traumatic events and predispositions, like genetics and brain chemistry. They often start at an early age, but can also develop later in life.

So, why puppets?

Childhood trauma: It isn’t unheard of for a child to have a terrible nightmare involving a puppet, whether it’s after watching a scary movie or provoked by a frightening encounter during a puppet performance.
The illusion of life: Many people are fearful of inanimate objects coming to life.
Uncanny representation: Although it’s obvious that puppets aren’t human, they still embellish an uncanny representation of being human.
Intentionally creepy: Puppet horror collectibles, although the perfect representation of memorable characters from horror movies, was created to be creepy for our entertainment.

Which iconic horror puppet is your favorite?

The horror film and TV industry have done a hair-raising job creating the creepiest, most otherworldly puppets. So, regardless if they’re the stars of your nightmares or the horror collectibles sitting on your shelf, you can’t help but applaud their ability to scare fans of the genre. But which puppet heightens your pupaphobia?

Puppet Master: The Puppet Master franchise is definitely one of the horror installments that’s equipped with threatening, anthropomorphic puppets. Whether you prefer the demonic qualities of Blade or the flamethrower, known as Torch, it’s clear that these two puppets can’t be pulled by any mere strings.

The Billy Puppet: Whether you prefer the horror-ific voice of the Saw franchise’s Billy Puppet or you get a kick out of the antagonist version from the film Dead Silence, what both of these horror icons have in common is downright darkness. With their ghostly white faces, demonically possessed eyes and scary, real-life personas these horror puppets are what night terrors of made of.

Goosebumps: No other character quite represents Goosebumps like Slappy the puppet. As one of the series’ most popular villains, he appears to have a fun-loving, family-friendly personality at first, but if you cross him or attempt to ditch him, he becomes an entirely different demonic entity with the supernatural powers to summon great evil.

You wouldn’t want to SPRING into these 4 horror movie icons

Posted on

What is it that’s so absolutely chilling and alarming about the dark facade behind our favorite horror movie icons? Is it their damaging upbringing that makes us feel a connection to them? Is it the menacing terror that’s bestowed upon their victims that hooks us? Or is it this shrill element of fear that gets our hearts pumping? Regardless of how we choose to analyze the horror genre, horror movies and their dreadful villains are incredibly terrifying and lovable for so many reasons and best of all, they come in different ghoulish forms — disturbed people, demonic entities, grueling monsters or something utterly unexplainable. Needless to say, these iconic killers, despite their eerie-sistable performances in horror movies, are not the dark souls that you would want to be bumping into while out on the streets. Since the days of darkness are dwindling leading up to the Spring equinox (March 21), let’s take the last few precious days of darkness that we have left to pay our respects to the darkest horror movie icons in the business.

Michael Myers, Halloween  

No one quite knows what makes this psychopathic killer tick, but with a hit list that’s surely miles long, we simply wouldn’t feel comfortable asking him. Horror fans know Michael Myers as one of the most cold-blooded, faceless, motivation-less killers in the genre, so they probably wouldn’t want to run him unexpectedly. After all, he is the essence of pure evil and once he becomes fixated on a victim, he will stop at nothing until they’re in his clutches.

Pinhead, Hellraiser

Now, a run-in with this ruthless villain would result in the bloodthirsty harvest of your soul, so it would probably be best to avoid the leader of the Cenobites. Though Pinhead appears to be a quiet 80s horror movie villain, don’t let his presence fool you, this demonic entity is swift, ruthless and has several supernatural abilities. Needless to say, if you manage to spring yourself from the clutches of Pinhead, it’ll be short-lived escape before his unearthly attack methods will have you hanging by a hook and chains prior to mutilation.

Jason Voorhees, Friday the 13th

If you were to combine the emotionless evil of Michael Myers with the cutthroat, superhuman strength of Pinhead, you would get the machete-wielding killer Jason Voorhees. Needless to say, have you ever noticed the compassion that envelops Jason’s character? While he has no problem slaying adults or teenagers who he comes into contact with at Crystal Lake, Voorhees is never seen carving an animal or a child. Perhaps this evil villain is only concerned with teaching a lesson to those who enjoy breaking the rules. So, you better hope that he doesn’t discover your deepest, darkest secrets if you cross each other’s path one day.

Xenomorphs, Alien

Probably not one of the horror movie icons that you were expecting, but a shout out to the Xenomorphs, better known as the aliens from the Alien franchise, for their ferocious, otherworldly nature that’s so unrelenting when they come across any human form. How do they torture their victims? Well, they attach themselves to their victim’s face, embed an egg into the person’s stomach and once the supernatural life form is finished growing, it bursts out of the chest of the casualty while they’re still breathing. Yeah, there’s no witchcraft that’s going to get you out of their malevolent encounter!

Out of all the horror movies out there, which bloodthirsty villain are you most afraid of? Tell us in the comments section below.

A behind the scenes look into the Child’s Play franchise

Posted on

Horror fans who crave a tasteful combination of chilling, slasher suspense and comedy absolutely adore everything about the Child’s Play franchise. This particular horror series takes a very original approach to the motives behind a stereotypical, creepy living dead doll. While the Good Guy Chucky Doll — a toy that’s possessed by the notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray — looks innocent, he is indeed obsessed with cursing, sexual desires and figuring out how to transfer his soul into a living human body. It’s safe to say that this authentic storyline has fanatics constantly wondering what might happen next. Needless to say, while you’re already familiar with the voodoo-practicing, menacing murders and a whole lot of blood, there are still a lot of intriguing facts about the franchise that you probably didn’t know.

Chucky’s real name was inspired by serial killers

While we’re most familiar with the provocative, knife-wielding character, Chucky’s threatening persona as a doll is actually based on his psychopathic tendencies in his original human form. Charles Lee Ray, also known in the Child’s Play franchise as the Lakeshore Strangler is a fictional killer disciplined in the ancient art of voodoo rituals. Although the character is fictitious, his name was inspired by three infamous murders throughout history — Charles Manson, American cult leader, Lee Harvey Oswald, the sniper who shot John F. Kennedy and James Earl Ray, the man who assassinated Martin Luther King.

Chucky loses a hand in many of the films

SPOILER ALERT! Before Chucky “dies” in Child’s Play, Andy’s mother shoots his right hand off with a gun. During the second film, Child’s Play 2, Chucky is forced to rip his own hand off while escaping, later replacing it with a knife. How classic? And finally, during the third installment of the original Child’s Play franchise, Andy gets his chance to chop off Chucky’s hand. The best part is, this hand-chopping tradition is continued on in the sequel films.  

Bride of Chucky pays homage to classic horror films

If you look closely during the opening scene of Bride of Chucky, some horror Easter eggs have been left behind for the slasher film fans. Freddy Krueger’s razor-tipped glove, Michael Myers’ killer disguise, Jason Voorhees’ hockey-mask and Leatherface’s chainsaw is locked away in the police evidence depository.

A Child’s Play reboot and TV series are in the works

Production is currently underway on a Child’s Play reboot that aims to breathe a fresh take on the infamous horror franchise. While this contemporary reimagining is changing up the persona of the 1988 classic, it will still possess the same seat-jumping, horrifying blood bath that the original franchise is known for. The best part is that this modern-day film will be jam-packed with technological upgrades in order to entice a new generation.

Not to be confused with the upcoming Child’s Play TV series, which is keeping the classic undertones of the original horror franchise. Said to be honoring the storyline of Chucky’s menacing adventures, this creation has room to expand his character, explore the bloodthirsty playground and tell a little bit more of the backstory.
