In recent years, Trick or Treat Studios has released a couple different Evil Dead 2 Halloween masks, and they continue the franchise love this year with these two based on Starz’ “Ash vs. Evil Dead.” The series, which premiered last Halloween, introduced us to all sorts of new Deadites, and the masks allow you to become and/or display two of the most memorable: Eligos, who literally leapt off the pages of the Necronomicon, and Vivian, Ash’s friendly trailer park neighbor who got real ugly and real mean.
Fans of Lucio Fulci’s Italian horror classic Zombie were treated to a Halloween mask based on the film’s “Worm-Eyed Zombie” last year, and Trick or Treat beefs up the Fulci collection this year with one depicting the equally memorable “Boat Zombie.” This particular zombie was seen early on in the movie, and his name is derived from the fact that, well, he brutally attacked a police officer on a boat. He was played by the late Arthur J. Haggerty, and is officially credited in the film as “Fat Boat Zombie.”
One of the 2016 Halloween season’s most unique offerings is this replica of Be Something Studios’ “Fantome” mask from the 1980s, which you may remember from Friday the 13th: Part 2. In the film, Ted (played by Stu Charno) wears one of the masks to scare his fellow camp counselors, and they haven’t been produced since Be Something Studios became Zagone Studios back in the ’90s. Thanks to a partnership between Trick or Treat and Zagone, they’re coming back. How cool is that?!
Horror movie imagery doesn’t get much more iconic than the fully zombified/decayed face of Jack Goodman in An American Werewolf in London, which was sculpted and applied to actor Griffin Dunne by the legendary Rick Baker. Now YOU can become undead Jack thanks to this incredibly detailed mask, which was officially approved by Baker himself. Trick or Treat Studios previously released three different masks of American Werewolf‘s nightmare demons, along with one of the titular wolf.
Which of these masks will you be picking up this year? Let us know!
