There's quite a bit of savage news out of Funko lately, and the latest is seasonally-perfect. On the heels of their Savage World Thundercats announcement comes an assortment of action figures that reimagines some of the biggest icons of horror in an unexpected way - buffed-up and ready for battle! The Horror Savage World collection will launch with Freddy Krueger from ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’, Jason Voorhees from ‘Friday the 13th’, Leatherface from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', Michael Myers from 'Halloween' and Pinhead from 'Hellraiser' - each presented in the muscular 5.5" action figure style that was made famous by Mattel's Masters of the Universe line back in the 1980s. As Funko points out, these horror villains are "ready to haunt your dreams and chase you down." If you want these in time for this Halloween, get your pre-orders in via my affiliate, Entertainment Earth!
Utah's "Skinwalker Ranch" is a paranormal hotbed that has become infamous in recent decades - a property where so much unexplained has happened, the entire place is shrouded in mystery.

It investigates the confidential, most extensive scientific study of a paranormal hotspot in human history. Set for release by The Orchard on Digital HD to own September 11 (streaming on-demand on 9/19), check out the trailer and details below...
From ghost stories to haunted houses, many of us enjoy the thrill of the supernatural—especially in the fall. We share scary tales to invoke feelings of fright at the unknown, but the most unnerving thing about these stories is they are often based on true events and real locations. Several historic places in Montana are known for their own spooky legends and tales of paranormal activity. As you step back in time and discover the past, you might find some of these ghost stories are more than just fiction.
The Drac Pack is back with HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3, which will make its debut on Digital HD September 25, and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on October 9, just in time to for a spooky, fun, family movie night right before Halloween! This must-own family comedy, which has grossed more than $425 million in theaters worldwide to date, follows in the tradition of the blockbuster Hotel Transylvania franchise when Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury, haunted monster cruise ship. Of course, the rest of the Drac Pack has to tag along, and that’s when things get a little…batty. The monsters are having a great time, indulging in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to colossus-sized buffets and exotic excursions, but then the unexpected happens when Drac falls for the ship’s mysterious (and dangerous) human captain Ericka. The third film in this family-friendly monster franchise is the best reviewed installment and you’re invited along on the haunted cruise vacation!
It's that time of year again... where the General Mills Monsters emerge from their crypt and start to haunt the cereal aisles once more. As in recent years (with the exception of 2013), Yummy Mummy and Fruit Brute are being left behind on the grocery end of things, but they are joining Franken Berry, Boo Berry and Count Chocula somewhere else... the toy department of your local Target (an affiliate) store! Thanks to Big G Creative (oddly enough, no relation to General Mills' Big G cereals), the whole crew is present for Monster Crunch! The Breakfast Battle Game, officially launching on August 26th.
