Headsup: Mummies, Genies, Ninjas & Beasties

There’s a lot of stuff that comes out all the time, and the companies are want your attention and mostly…your coin. But, you know, it’s your coin and you have to take care where you spend it. With these posts we try to take you through recent releases so you can make up your mind. If you find the info here to be of use, do us a favor and purchase stuff from Amazon through us. Especially if you were going to buy the stuff anyway. That gives us kickbacks, which help pay for things. Like the server. And coffee. And therapy. We thank you.

I want an entire line of horror-themed cuckoo clocks. “They’re Coming to Get You, Barbara,” followed by Johnny coming through the door after her like towards the end of the film? Hell yes. Hell yes.
