Howdy there, Scream Freaks! If we didn’t know better, we’d think Halloween already snuck up on us. Seems the haunted season can’t get here soon ‘nough fer some of y’all, ’cause the web’s gettin’ slammed with all kinds of celebratory updates featurin’ mass purchases of this year’s spookiest decor. From big box lumber shops to pop-up costume emporiums, this October’s shapin’ up to be one outrageously blinged out spook-tacular, and we couldn’t be more excited! Curious what’s been catchin’ our squirrelly attention so far?

Spirit Halloween stores have ‘come synonymous with merch that costs an arm and a leg, but none more so than this overpriced sucker we ’bout shit bricks over. Standin’ a bit over a foot tall, this weighty Light-Up Killer Klown Popcorn Statue rings in at $90! You can get a full size Ghostbusters proton pack with all the bells and whistles for that price! Why is this over the top paperweight so much? Is it the lights, ’cause they ain’t all that impressive or bright. But don’t be discouraged, Scream Freaks. If yer a Killer Klowns fan like we are, there are much more affordable and cooler lookin’ popcorn clowns as low as $10 at Wal-Mart!

Blowmolds are makin’ a comeback this year, and there’s plenty to be found at Lowe’s Home Improvement. From licensed kiddie properties like Mickey and Minnie Mouse huggin’ jack-o-lanterns to generic black cats and tombstones, these nostalgic decorations are all the rage with mid-century obsessed collectors, and are a welcomed blast from the past.

The last item that pulled us in like a tractor beam and had us runnin’ to the registers with it in a death grip were these Mr. Halloween Trick or Treat Tunes radios. Sleek retro designs with some pretty bad ass decals, these babies tune into three modestly pre-recorded channels fer weather, sports, and organ jams. We found ’em in a Marshalls department store, but plenty are sold online for reasonable prices.

There’s plenty more frightenin’ furnishin’s and demented decor we could yammer on ’bout, but we wouldn’t wanna peak to soon, Scream Freaks! Plus, we gotta get back to work on our Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Retrospective we’ve been teasin’ y’all with. Editin’ 20+ hours of interviews with all the cast and crew involved with creatin’ such a cult hit series is provin’ to be a chore, but we’re havin’ a blast as killer veggie fans and can’t wait to share this passion project as soon as it’s ready. So far, it’s lookin’ to be a real couch potato marathon with a potential runtime of four hours. Sounds like a lot, but horror fans like myself had no problem sittin’ through ’em 4-7 hour documentaries on the makin’ of the Freddy and Jason movies, so why not go all out for this? Killer Tomato fans have been denied all the behind the scenes trivia long ‘nough, and I’m gonna pack in all I can!
