Festival of Fear

Official Festival of Fear poster takes shape

on August 21, 2012 | 1 Comment

Today was a little like Christmas at the House of Horror — assuming, of course, your idea of Christmas has less to do with creepy home invaders like Santa Claus and more to do with creepy home invaders like Michael Myers. The official Festival of Fear print is here, and it’s a beauty. Designed by Justin Erickson, the 18″ x 24″ screen print is part of a signed and numbered edition of 200, available at the Rue Morgue booth at FoF. (Printing by D&L Screen Printing.)

Justin will be at FoF peddling prints and posters on behalf of Phantom City Creative, so be sure to drop in and say hi.

So, seeing that many horror fans (particularly if you’re of a certain age) were introduced to the genre through television, I thought it would be nice to celebrate our favourite holiday with a look at some the classic ads featured within the magazine.

Thirty-two years ago this week, a certain little indie film called Halloween was first released to theatres. Making its premiere in Kansas City on October 25th, 1978,  John Carpenter’s low-budget tale of a homicidal maniac who escapes from a psychiatric institution and returns to his hometown where he  stalks a trio of teenaged girls would go on to break box-office records and become one of horrordom’s most iconic films. So, to celebrate the film’s 32nd birthday, here’s a look at some of the collectibles Halloween and its sequels have inspired.
