3 spooky gift ideas for your bloody Valentine

Posted on

Whether you’d kill to be his boo or you’ve got your eyes peeled on her, chances are that your Valentine’s Day will be a zombie love story — loving up all the brain, maybe some of the body. So, if you’re hoping to spark that flame and spend this February 14th watching all the dumb people get murdered in the best horror flicks, you’ll need to get your claws on a grim gift that will eat their heart out. Well, maybe not literally! That being said, if you’re absolutely bewitched by a special someone and if they’re a connoisseur of all thing’s horror like yourself, give them adding to their compiled collection that’s both exclusive and uncommon. 

Frightening Funko POP!s are full of surprises 

Although Funko POP! vinyl figures are small, they’re also mighty and even better, they depict all your favorite licensed characters from the most gruesome horror franchises. Recognizable for their over-sized heads and piercing eyes, these creep-tastic impersonators will extend your fandom to a whole new level and if you choose to gift them to your bloody valentine this year, they will likely make their head spin with excitement. Choose from front-running foes like Pinhead, Beetlejuice, and Michael Myers or admire heroes like Jack Skellington, Daryl Dixon or Coraline with her cat buddy. So, which frightening Funko POP! would your beloved devour? 

Gift tees that please!

Some horror lovers are all about practicality which means that instead of buying your valentine a prop that’s bound to sit on a shelf, you can present them with a horrifying tee allowing them to cape themselves in the comfort of some heart-throbbing characters. So, since what we wear is a reflection of our personalities, allow your ghoul friend to embellish The Terrifier, The Shape or Godzilla in their everyday attire. After all, they would kill to look this great! 

Awe them with a Chucky Good Guy Doll

If you often say, “you’re a doll”, to your treasured valentine, then the perfect present may exist and since the love you possess for your significant other cuts deep, give them something extra special on February 14th. When it comes to horror collectibles, none are more popular than the officially licensed, one-to-one scale Child’s Play 2, Chucky Good Guy Doll!

Our 5 favorite films to binge-watch before Halloween

Posted on

Whether you prefer stand-alone films or haunting franchises with a grisly cult following, there are so many movies to go batty over as Halloween night inches closer. Needless to say, to the fans who’re obsessed enough to buy horror movies online to watch them year-round, or those who may be on the haunt for some horrifying tales to bewitch the senses, here are some of Nightmare Toys’ most cherished, binge-worthy contenders.   

The Conjuring (2013)

While there are many alarming choices from The Conjuring Universe, none make the same bloodcurdling impression as the first installment in the creep-tastic franchise. For those who have it on their horror bucket list, The Conjuring is a supernatural film that follows a real-life telling of the experiences of the Perron family while living in their Rhode Island farmhouse in the ‘70s. It also gruesomely intertwines demonologists, Lorraine and Ed Warren, as they attempt to investigate these paranormal events. 

Fans of the film should be pleased by our devilishly delightful collection of The Conjuring horror keepsakes, including Annabelle, The Nun, and The Crooked Man.    

Coraline (2009)

Although Coraline is an animation that’s not particularly known for being frightening or gory, the reality is it has some grisly terrifying scenes that were inspired by age-old folktales. So, why hasn’t it been added to your must-watch Halloween list?

Of all the nightmarish monsters in this quivering horror film, none are more brilliantly creepy than, Other Mother. Thanks to Pop! Movies and Pop! Animation, we’ve got an otherworldly collection of Coraline mementos that add alluring diversity to your ever-growing horror collection. Ultimately, who can resist those button eyes? 

Terrifier (2016)

Those looking for a slasher that’s bound to fog their dreams with frightening nightmares should relish in the bizarre darkness exhibited by the film, Terrifier. After all, who wouldn’t want to watch as an unnerving clown maniacally terrorizes his prey on all Hallows eve? Those who’re fans of the homicidal, Art the Clown, can even reanimate the beloved murderer with some of his cult collectibles — including a full-bodied costume, chilling mask, and even a dreadful tee designed to cloak their ghoulish charm.

Carrie (1976)

The days leading up to Halloween wouldn’t be the same if they didn’t include watching one of Stephen King’s iconic cult classics. That’s we recommend that you add Carrie to your list of alarmingly, bone-chilling horror films. An oldie, but a goodie, Carrie is an adaptation of the famed horror novel which follows a teen who faces bullying at school and parental abuse at home. Equipped with supernatural powers, she takes a malevolently dark turn for the worst, making the violent plot sequence a cackling good time for horror lovers. 

If you buy horror movies online and haven’t already acquired this eerie addition, we’ve got an impressive DV that contains all the chilling bonus features. Although if your devotion extends beyond basic film collection, a bloody coffee mug or mini figurine may be enough to tame your loathing heart. 

Chucky (1988 – 2019)

Whether you binge-watch the series or select a slasher favorite from the famed horror franchise, no countdown to Halloween could ever be complete without a heavy dosage of Chuck! After all, his voodoo-chanting is rather mesmerizing to worshipers of the notorious serial killer. So, grab yourself some popcorn and start decorating your crypt with your collection of Child’s Play action figures, horror movies pillows, and dolls, dead-icating your evening to the Good Guys! 

Note that some of the above collectibles may be pre-order items and will be shipped on their scheduled dates.

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!

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.
