Regular readers of Dread Central know that we’re huge fans of the docu-series Collection Complete (which takes an in-depth look into the lives of artists and the collections that fuel their work, as presented by Gemr, an app for collectors worldwide). Kicking it all off on August 1st is returning Collection Complete guest Sean Clark, who in the first episode titled “The Warriors Screen-Used Vest Comes Out to Play!” discusses the 1970 cult film and artifacts from it with actor and friend James Remar.
The show (created by Carlee Baker and Sean Decker) which in the past has showcased the personal collections of filmmakers Mike Mendez of Tales of Halloween fame and The Hills Run Red producer Robert Meyer Burnett, as well that of screen-used prop collector Sean Clark (Horror’s Hallowed Grounds) is set to explore in future installments the curations of an ever-growing variety of collectors of pop culture.
Las Vegas resident Jason Egan (the mastermind behind the haunted attraction Fright Dome and the Official SAW Escape Room), LA-based Barbie aficionado Azusa Barbie, Tom Devlin of the Nevada-based road-side attraction “Tom Devlin’s Monster Museum,” artist and designer Micheline Pitt, and Crave filmmaker Charles de Lauzirika (among others) are some of the few slated to take viewers on a journey into their own personal obsessions, which range from screen-used props from such films as Jaws, Hellraiser and Gremlins to vintage Barbie dolls, rare Star Wars and KISS collectibles and so much more!
What’s more, Midsummer Scream, inarguably the west coast’s largest horror and Halloween con, is hosting a panel on Collection Complete on Saturday, August 3rd from 4-5 pm at the Long Beach Convention Center. Moderated by Brian Collins of Birth.Movies.Death, “Pop Culture Collecting in the Modern World” is set to feature show creators Carlee Baker and Sean Decker, along with series’ stars and collectors Burnett, Mendez and Pitt, who hope to collectively answer the question, “What makes a collector collect?” while delving into their own ultra-rare collections of pop culture ephemera.
