From the Press Release:
Documenting Kirk’s love of all things horror and the legendary collection of horror memorabilia he has amassed over the years, TMHB is a stunning 228-page hardback, large format coffee table book featuring well over 300 full color images from Kirk’s private collection and exclusive set photography by Mark Leialoha and Joe Gibbs. There will be three extensive conversations with writer Steffan Chirazi covering the importance of collecting in Hammett’s life from childhood, plus written captions by Kirk for many of the items displayed in the book.

“This is my gift to all the other horror nerds out there who are just like me,” says Kirk. “It’s been made with great love for all the many characters and movies which guided me through childhood, into adulthood and which still keep me on track today.”

On June 23rd-24th, at Orion Music + More, the new annual festival founded by Metallica and taking place in Atlantic City, New Jersey, fans will see a preview of what’s to come in Too Much Horror Business. Hammett will be hosting Kirk’s Crypt and offering fans an extraordinary glimpse into his collection. Click here for more information on Kirk’s Crypt and Orion Music + More.

In addition to Too Much Horror Business, Hammett will also commence producing collectible items through his Kirk Von Hammett line, specifically toys. Each of the collectibles will be a strictly limited edition, with the first one being available on October 1st at KVHtoys.com. In the meantime Too Much Horror Business t-shirts are now available, with other surprises due as the publishing date gets closer.

“I’ve spent my life collecting toys, so what could be more fun than making a series of toys which indulge my childhood fantasies AND which people can collect! “It’s more about fulfilling a huge ambition than anything else, and I hope I get the first one!”

Bruce is Back in Bitchin’ New Retro Poster for Eli Roth’s Death Wish Remake

Published

on

Bruce. Is. Back.

A few weeks back we shared with you guys the awesome retro grindhouse trailer for Eli Roth’s upcoming remake of Death Wish, starring Bruce Willis.

That trailer was a ton of fun so we wanted to make sure to also share with you the new retro grindhouse poster for the film as well.

You can check out the poster to the right and the grindhouse trailer below and then let us know what you think!

Personally, I’m digging the hell out of this new marketing strategy, but then again, I love me some Grindhouse cinema. And if we can’t have Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving, then I guess this flick will do, for now.

Death Wish is a remake of the Charles Bronson-led 1974 film of the same name, which itself was based on Brian Garfield’s original novel.

This film is directed by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) from a script written by Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Narc) and stars Bruce Willis, Vincent D’Onofrio, Dean Norris, Elisabeth Shue, Camila Morrone, and Kimberly Elise.

Bruce is Back March 2, 2018.

Synopsis:

Dr. Paul Kersey is a surgeon who often sees the consequences of the city’s violence in the emergency room. When home intruders brutally attack his wife and young daughter, Kersey becomes obsessed with delivering vigilante justice to the perpetrators. As the anonymous slayings grab the media’s attention, the public begins to wonder if the deadly avenger is a guardian angel — or the Grim Reaper itself.

Want a LEGO Godzilla Set? Here’s Your Chance!

Published

on

The longest-running franchises in cinema history, the Godzilla films have created a cultural icon in the form of the titular beast. Simply hearing its roar or seeing its silhouette is enough to let us know precisely what we’re looking at. Having ventured out of cinema and forayed into TV shows, comic books, video games, and countless merchandise options, Godzilla still hasn’t managed to break into one of the world’s most popular toy company: LEGO. However, that might change if BRICK_101 has their say via LEGO Ideas, where they submitted a design based on the 1954 original film!

Here’s the description from the site:
This model contains approximately 850 LEGO pieces, stands 9 inches (23 cm) tall, and measures 17 inches (44 cm) from head to tail. Godzilla has had many different designs over the years, but we based ours on the original 1954 movie. The arms, legs, jaw, and tail are hinged to allow the model to be posed in a variety of positions. In addition to Godzilla, the set also includes a small microscale train for Godzilla to stomp on or chomp on and a flame piece to represent Godzilla’s atomic breath.

The website allows people to submit their own ideas (such as this Call of Cthulhu set) and then allow the public to vote on whether or not they want to see it get made. Should the idea get 10,000 votes, it then gets moved up the ladder within LEGO’s headquarters and a decision is made to see if they want to make an official set.

So, if you want to see LEGO make an official Godzilla set, click on the link above and cast your vote!
