Exclusive: Debut of Beverly Lane Action Figures



Here’s a little secret about me: I love action figures. In fact, I’ve always wanted to get myself immortalized in action figure form. And while I wait to get that dream fulfilled, Dread Central recently learned of some really fun new action figures that are making their debut this October for the indie horror comedy Beverly Lane.

Writer/director Joshua Hull sent word over that in honor of Beverly Lane’s October 29th premiere, he had a set of action figures made of some of the key cast members and will be giving them out during the premiere event in Indiana. If the response is great enough, Hull teased there just may be an opportunity to purchase sets of the figures in the future.

The four characters from left to right are Adam Cadabra (Jim O’Rear), Andy (Noah East), Susan (Debora J. Mincy), and Scotty the Janitor (Mark A. Nash). Read on for character descriptions and details on the Beverly Lane premiere!

Exclusive: Debut of Beverly Lane Action Figures

* Adam Cadabra is the creepy magician Andy hires for “Coney Island” day. Adam is a magician, part-time stripper, and aspiring screenwriter.

* Andy is the new boss at Beverly Lane Metal. The 26-year-old has to deal with ungrateful older employees, crazy clowns, bloodthirsty religious circles, and zombies — all on his first day.

* Susan is the office tramp/minor league cult leader. When all hell breaks loose, Susan adds judgment, murder, and re-population to her resume.

* Scotty is the long-time janitor at Beverly Lane Metal. A life-long action movie addict, Scotty attempts to become the “JCVD” of Beverly Lane. The word “hero” fits him as well as his janitor jumpsuit.

Beverly Lane is set to premiere on October 29th at midnight at the Hamilton 16 IMAX Theater in Noblesville, IN. Tickets to this event are $7.25, and those in attendance will get so much more than just a night with some flesh-eating zombies. The premiere event kicks off with a costume contest in the theater mezzanine between 10:30-10:45 pm, and contestants will be competing for tons of great prizes.

For more information, check out the official Beverly Lane website, and befriend Beverly Lane on Facebook.

Vintage Toy Finder ALERT! If You Collect This Is a MUST-READ!



Anyone who knows me knows that when it comes to collectibles, I’m like a moth to a flame. Especially vintage toys. I, like many of you, grew up in a dysfunctional family circus. When I reached a certain age, my parents saw fit to take my most beloved toys and give them away to younger kids or just trash them completely. I’m still devastated. My childhood was pretty much nil, and I’ve been swimming in chaos ever since.

Once things finally “calmed down” a bit, I began reclaiming these relics of happier times. Damned straight I got an 18″ Kenner Alien, a Stretch X-Ray doll, a Mighty Men and Monster Maker, the Bermuda Triangle board game, etc. I revel in them as few items make me as happy as they do. As a result I always keep my eye out for things, specifically horror related toys I may have missed.

Enter 1967’s Ka-Bala, the most insane and intricate Ouija board I’ve ever seen. I don’t use Ouijas, but once I saw this, it was love at first shiver. The problem with collecting toys like this is that rarely can you find them complete. For Christmas Debi tracked down Ka-Bala for me, BUT we were missing the instructions. There’s not much sense in playing or having a board game if you don’t know said rules.

I scoured the Internet but only came up with a few sites that were charging astronomical prices for replacement parts and/or instructions. It was ludicrous. So I busted out my Creepy resources and asked our resident board game loony David Hahn, who writes Last Meeple Standing for us, for some help. Within days he and his wondrous wife, Tiffany (who also works with David on Meeple), led me to a site called Lost and Found Vintage Toys maintained by Brenda Roudabush.

Brenda, who says she has “gotten to play happiness broker several times reuniting vintage kids with their old long lost toys,” got right to work and sent me some amazing scans of the instructions and more.

After piquing my interest with her knowledge of such things, I can’t recommend her more. If you’re a collector, and chances are very good that you are because, well you’re reading this, make sure to check out the site listed above. It’s like an encyclopedia of happiness! Enjoy, and tell her Creepy sent ya!

For even more fun check out my other go-to toy site, Raymond Castile’s Gallery of Monster Toys. Quick trivia re Ray… He’s the spitting image of Coffin Joe and played young Zé do Caixão in José Mojica Marins’ 2008 film Embodiment of Evil. How friggin’ cool is that? It’s a small and sometimes wonderful world, I tell ya!

Gremlins 2 Blind Bag Is Adorable and Awesome



“G2, baby. G2!”

I’m not going to lie to you guys and say that I know what this Blind Bag Collection is. It seems from the slick name that one shouldn’t know what’s exactly inside… but maybe I’m missing something.

Anyhow, none of that really matters as long as the Blind Bag Collection boasts such awesome shite as this Gremlins 2: The New Batch one from Monogram International does, then it’s all good.

The set seems to include a collection figural keyrings that include such classic Gremlins characters as Combat Gizmo, Brownie, Penny, Phantom, Stripe, Greta, Gizmo, Flasher, George, and Lightning Gremlin and Bat Gremlin.

You can check out pics from the “Gremlins Series 2 Blind Bag Collection” below as well as a fun unboxing video. After all that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think!
