Halloween Month: Collection

This week's Theme Thursday is "Collection".

To tie this into Halloween Month, I am presenting pics of the items in my "Horror Collection"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Photobucket

To start with, here is my collection of horror films (and some books). Lots of slasher stuff here, with some odds and ends and oldies mixed in.

The 3 seasons of Friday the 13th: The Series on DVD are a highlight for me.

Also happy to have the novelizations of Halloween II & III. Have Friday the 13th: Part II in book form, but apparently have misplaced it. Doh!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Horror 12

I have a bunch of t-shirts, but this is the coolest. Actually, it is part of a Jason costume. The mask isn't that great, but the jersey is sweet.

And no, that is not me. Stole that pic from the Net.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Horror Collection 10

Horror Collection 9

These are two pics of one long shelf in our living room display cabinet. Included here are Movie Maniacs Jason Voorhees & Michael Myers; Jason & Michael bobbleheads; Jason & Freddy Kreuger Matchbox vehicles; and Jason, Freddy & Leatherface Mez-Its

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Horror Collection 11

This is a shelf in a different room, with light-up collectible houses. Each comes with two versions of the film's villain.

Horror Collection 8

The Elm Street haunt of Freddy Kreuger. One of the Krueger figures has a furnace.

Horror Collection 7

Camp Crystal Lake cabin. One of the Jason figures is holding a severed head.

Horror Collection 6

Leatherface's family home.

Next to this house is a Friday the 13th glass I got at Newbury Comics earlier this year. Sweet!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Horror Collection 2

A few odds and ends, including: A Friday the 13th/Nightmare on Elm Street Trivia game; Crystal Lake Memories - The Complete History of Friday the 13th; Legacy of Blood - A Comprehensive Guide to Slasher Movies; A Friday the 13th deck of cards; and my new set of 4 Monster PSA stickers from artist Rob Kelly!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Horror Collection 1

Some more collectibles, including: The Friday the 13th 3D Movie Poster (very cool!); Friday the 13th Lunch box; 18" NECA Jason figure with weapons; Cinema of Fear 14" plush Jason; 13" plush Jason; plastic Jason goblet; Movie Maniacs Halloween set (Michael Myers & Dr. Loomis); Movie Maniacs Freddy vs Jason set (with flame dock and 3 changeable Freddy heads); Friday the 13th set (sack-head Jason and Mrs. Voorhees, with Mrs. Voorhees altar and severed head).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Photobucket

Michael Myers with a body and Judith's grave statue. Didn't realize this was a 'rare' item.

His mask here always seemed 'off', to me. Still better than the versions used in some sequels!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Horror 13

This is an 18" tall, motion-activated Michael Myers figure. When activated, it plays the "Halloween" theme. Pretty creepy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Photobucket

And this is the gem of my collection: A limited edition (1 of 1,250) 1/4 scale Jason Voorhees. He is heavy, stands about 21" tall and is pretty damn creepy.

I think the best thing is that I won this dude! He retailed for over $200 new. Zoinks!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The coolest thing about my collection? Almost all of these items were given to me as gifts, either from my very generous (and understanding) wife or from family and friends.

I am one lucky horror fan!

  7. Great collection. I love seeing other people's collectables. I know how much I love being in the room/cave with all my stuff. Its the best part - enjoying the collection. I am sure the Jason Vorhees Daycare will appreciate it being donated to them when you are gone. Hey, its a tax deduction. EEEEEK. And why does everyone ask about the dusting?

  12. Baino ~ dust probably just adds to the creepy displays, right Wings? :)

    This is an impressive collection! If you are ever a suspect in a murder investigation, they are going immediately think you are guilty when they search your home! ha-ha!

  21. I love your passion about horror! I have a story for saturday that is right up your alley! :)

  22. I must say that if I were to collect anything, this would not be it. I've never even seen the Freddy Kreuger movies. That said, your collection is impressive -- especially impressive that they are all gifts. Interesting post.

  27. Very awesome as everyone else said. That Michal Myers statue, where he is holding Annie's body and is by Judith's grave, is a rare item? I have it too.
