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! Featuring an eerie-sistably accurate portrayal of the killer villain, this amazing product is a gift that’s on track to get you the ultimate boo-ty call. So, since he or she brings out the devil in you, ensure that they have a vile Valentine’s Day.

Posted on

Horror lovers looking to learn the true secret behind Santa’s slay are the ones that should read along to discover Nightmare Toy’s roundup of top holiday picks. That’s right! Since the holiday season is a time of comfort, joy, and roasting chestnuts over an open fire, why shouldn’t you be able to submerge yourself in this merry occasion by fixating on some macabre thrills? Have yourself a scary Christmas and more when you deck the cinematic halls with these three feature films! 

Gremlins (1984)

Those who are looking for a blackened comedy that’s equally balanced against a Christmas setting will love the ‘80s film, “Gremlins”. Devilish fans of this iconic title likely own an assorted assemblage of Gremlins-inspired horror collectibles, however, if you’re unfamiliar with this hair-raising installment, it’s high time you added it to your holiday must-watch list. 

When a gadget salesman is on the haunt for a special Christmas gift for his son, he stumbles into a unique Chinatown store, and although the shopkeeper is reluctant to sell him a mogwai, he caves and hands over the creature with a warning to keep it away from water, bright lights, and food after midnight. Now doesn’t this plot description sound like a grisly, festive film that will delight the senses? 

Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

It goes without saying, but the ‘90s classic, “Nightmare Before Christmas”, is one of the few existing films that can bridge the almost 2-month gap between Halloween and Christmas. Since the animated musical offers a frightful display of supernatural qualities overtaken by the actions of The Pumpkin King attempting to overthrow Christmas, this haunting flick pulls at the heartstrings and the wallets of horror lovers everywhere, encouraging a vast compilation of horror collections.

For those who’re less experienced with a blended variety of horror and festivity, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is a cinematic wonder that follows Jack Skeleton on his road to self-discovery. Little did he know was that this particular road leads to a grove of holiday-inspired trees containing a jamboree of festive worlds, including Sandy Claws and the infamous Christmas town!    

Krampus (2015)

Based on European folklore, “Krampus” is a festive, horror film that portrays the horned, anti-Claus who punishes misbehaved children during the Christmas season. While the figure has been rendered on many dark, desirable horror collectibles, the flick is a recent installment to the genre, featuring a family whose dying faith in the holiday season leads them to a confrontation with the time-honored monster. So, whether you want to scare your children into behaving the weeks leading up to the holidays or you simply enjoy a holly, jolly bloodbath, this must-watch film would make a delightfully demonic addition to the most joyous occasion.
