Post Thumb:


While the Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark remake was disappointing to most of us, no one can deny that the creatures themselves were pretty cool, which is why we’re letting you know that Sideshow Collectibles’ badass Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark polystone diorama just became available for pre-order.

Product Description:
Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark diorama. Inspired by the gripping Guillermo Del Toro film, the mysterious and vicious inhabitants of Blackwood Manor are captured in 1:1 scale. Creeping out from the darkness, the creatures measure 6.5 and 7.25 inches tall, respectively, and are hand crafted with Sideshow’s trademark attention to detail. The Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark diorama makes a chilling and noteworthy addition to any collection.

The Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark Polystone Diorama features:

  • Alphabet Blocks with initials GDT (Guillermo Del Toro) and DBA (Don’t Be Afraid)

    Back Story:
    Peering at victims from the darkness and a past that predates humanity, the homunculus creatures dwell in our nightmares made real. They surface with stealth, to catch even a glimpse is unusual, and far more rare are open interactions, except with the isolated or the weak.

    Alex, an over-busy father, brings his girlfriend Kim and daughter Sally to Blackwood Manor in Rhode Island to begin restoration of the estate. Eight-year-old Sally finds herself with plenty of time to explore the mansion and discover its secrets, including a hidden basement and sealed fireplace she can’t resist opening. Inside she finds a curious item: a discarded adult tooth.

    Drawn to children, the creatures offer few clues to their origin or motives, but they violently prevent the fireplace from being sealed again. Offering insight into their disturbing intentions, they leave a coin under Sally’s pillow in exchange for the lost tooth. Rooted in the darkness of the area’s underground caves and in the realm of faerie, the creatures become more aggressive in their attempts to abduct Sally, as they likely have uncounted other children. After the creatures brutally attack one of Blackwood’s workmen, Mr. Harris, Kim investigates the mysterious history of the estate and its former lord. The terrified family discovers the true intent of these creatures: to abduct Sally and transform her into one of their own.

    One of our favorite horror TV shows is Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” and one of our favorite moments from the first two seasons is when Ash brings out his “Ashy Slashy” puppet.

    If you’re like us and have been wondering when you could get your hands on an Ashy Slashy puppet of your own, today we have good news.

    NECA has just announced its prop replica!

    You can check out pics of the packaging reveal NECA did over on Facebook below, and then let us know if you’re going to be buying your very own Ash Slashy puppet.

    We’ll let you know when the item becomes available for pre-order!

    Rundown via NECA:
    Every day can be demented play day with your very own Ashy Slashy puppet from Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead! We’ve replicated Ash’s potty-mouthed little doppelganger from the asylum episodes for your (hopefully G-rated) entertainment.

    This is a working puppet – insert your hand, and you can move the mouth; plus the arms are poseable thanks to inner articulation.

    Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph Getting Their Own 8-Bit Pop Vinyls



    Funko has released some delightful horror-themed products over the years, but this just takes the cake. They’ve announced a new line of 8-bit Pop Vinyl figures, which will feature pixelated versions of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph. I never thought I’d say it, but even Freddy Krueger looks cute.

    Freddy and Jason will both come in standard editions, in addition to GameStop exclusives based on how they both appeared in their own NES video games. The Xenomorph will also have a Previews exclusive edition depicting it smeared with acid blood. Have a look at the images below to decide which versions you like best. Most of us would probably like to purchase all six!

    These adorable (but still horrible) figures will be available in January, so make sure you don’t go bankrupt over Christmas.
