"I got a rock." It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown taught us all that trick-or-treating can sometimes be a disappointing endeavor. Fortunately for you, I-Mockery's Halloween Club Packs have returned for the 2015 season, and they're so full of spooky goodness that they'd even make Charlie Brown himself smile through one of the many holes in his ghost sheet costume. Once again, I've scoured the globe in search of the finest random Halloween goodies to make these limited packs one of the most awesome things you'll ever find in your mailbox. And I gotta say, I honestly think I've topped myself this year! Behold!
I'm sure your eyes are crying tears of bloody joy at the mere sight of this spectacle, but I assure you this is just a mere sampling of what you can expect to find in one of our new Halloween Club Packs. So dry your eyes and let's take a closer look at some of the bigger things you'll receive in this year's pack. We begin with my personal favorite item:
Really excited about this one. Believe it or not, I managed to score a ton of vintage "Spooky World: A Video Visit To America's Horror Theme Park" VHS tapes from 1994! This video is all about one of the best haunted attractions in New England, when Spooky World was still in its original Berlin, Massachusetts farm location! Special effects horror wizard, Tom Savini, worked on the haunted house there, and Kane Hodder (aka: Jason Voorhees) provides the narration for the entire tour. There's hand-drawn Halloween animations, tours of the haunt, hayrides, Jason hanging out in the trunk of a car for some reason, and even a live performance by the creator of the Monster Mash himself, Bobby "Boris" Pickett. It's like taking a time machine back to the early 90s and paying a visit to the kind of classic haunted attraction we all wish still existed today. The artwork and photos on the packaging is killer too, so you can put it on your shelf as a Halloween decoration, or bust out an old VCR and enjoy the footage! They're still sealed in their original packaging, and everybody who places an order will be receiving one! Plus, with scintillating reviews like "Such a good time" by Linda Blair, and "People are getting the yell scared out of them" by Leeza Gibbons, how can you possibly go wrong?
Another thing that I'm sure none of you already have are these monster figures from 1989. The reason I'm sure you don't have them? Because they were only released in Spain! The series was called Super Monstruos by Yolanda, and featured 24 different horrific characters. The characters included a ghost pirate, skeleton, grim reaper, cyclops, mummy, zombie, witch, a sheet ghost, the fly, and even a cheesy bootleg Freddy Krueger with two bloody razor gloves, among others. They're solid, colorful hunks of plastic that have a ton of retro horror charm. I'm including one of these rare figures in each club pack, and regardless of which random character you receive, I'm sure you'll treasure it forever. I bought extra Freddy Krueger figures to improve your chances of scoring him, but I assure you, all of these creatures and characters are worthy of an honorary spot on your shelves. I'll be writing up an article on them this month so you can learn more about each one!
I'm happy to report that Marie Barr (Re) has printed up a brand new hand-drawn Halloween scarecrow illustration that you're gonna love. It's an absolutely beautiful piece of Halloween imagery, featuring the scarecrow, ghostly white albino pumpkins, corn stalks (I watched her painstakingly color in each individual kernel one at a time!), a full moon, and a crow. You'll get one of her full-color scarecrow print cards with every club pack order! The prints came out sooo nice, and I'm sure many of you will wanna frame 'em.
Next up, I already wrote an article this season about the awesome Weird Wheels trading cards, and now I'm giving you a handful of your very own! These are the original Weird Wheels trading card stickers from way back in 1980, and the artwork looks even better in person. Each club pack will come with five (5) different vintage Weird Wheels cards! But that's not all the cards 'n stickers you'll be receiving...
You'll be getting a rare pack of Monster In My Pocket "Slurpee Fun Packs" that were only available in 7-Eleven stores back in 1991! You can go buy a Slurpee and then open up the pack to relive the full experience. Maybe you'll get a Tengu tree monster, or the Kraken sea monster card! I'm also included not one, but *five* packs of Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters stickers! If you visited our Comic-Con booth earlier this summer, you saw I had a few of 'em for sale, but I stocked up big time for Halloween so everyone could enjoy these stickers featuring our favorite ugly little spud ghost and his pals! I'm also including one pack of Skeleton Warriors trading cards from 1995, because you can't enjoy Halloween without a hearty helping of skeletons, right? Right!
And for those of you who still haven't tried it, I'm throwing in a packet of Ghoul-Aid in every club pack once again, because Halloween simply wouldn't be complete without a delicious Scary Blackberry beverage. And this stuff really is delicious and worth tasting, though I have a feeling half of you will save them for all eternity, which is completely understandable. I don't care what the expiration dates say, I'm convinced Kool-Aid mix (er, Ghoul-Aid) has the same shelf life as your average Twinkie, so hold onto 'em as long as you like. Big thanks to Bill C. for helping me track down enough of these packets, as they're no longer being made!
As always, I'm including a variety of random Halloween trinkets, toys, stickers, and treats in every pack too. You'll find everything from adorable springy pop-up skull toys, orange & black Halloween fortune cookies with actual spooky fortunes inside them, miniature zombie figures, and sticky jack-o-lanterns, edible skull rings, Snoopy Halloween stickers, glow-in-the-dark parachute skeletons, seasonal Halloween candies & treats, and more! There will be other little surprises included with every order to ensure this box o' goodies keeps you entertained all month long.
As you can see, there's a whole lot o' fun in every box. I've spent even more time this year running around putting together all the supplies for these Halloween packs, so I'm really excited to hear what you think of 'em when they arrive at your doorstep. Please note that while I've made even more club packs than I did in 2014, they're still limited in quantity. Once they sell out, I won't be reproducing them again, so be sure to place your order early to ensure you get one and aren't left standing alone in a pumpkin patch like a disappointed Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin to arrive. Nobody wants to be a disappointed Linus.
Please keep in mind, you're not only getting a club pack filled with loads of hand-picked Halloween fun, you're also helping support all the time and work put into I-Mockery. Halloween season is easily the most important time of the year for me, but it's also the most expensive time as well. In addition to the cost of running I-Mockery, I rack up some hefty traveling and purchase expenses for all the articles and reviews I post on this site, so you purchasing my club packs and other merch really helps offset those costs. Also, if you have any friends who might like the Halloween Club Pack, please let 'em know about it before the packs sell out!
The Halloween Club Packs are $31 a pop (after all, Halloween is on October 31st) for anybody in the continental United States, and yes, that price does include shipping. Only one purchase per person please, as I wanna spread the wealth and make sure lots of people have a chance to order one. If you're ready to order, click the button below:
For international customers outside of the United States, due to the widely varying shipping costs and all the time it takes to fill out customs forms among other things (time that would be better spent writing new Halloween articles for the site), the club packs are not available for you to purchase on this page. That said, you know I don't like to leave anyone out, so if you *reeeeally* want a pack / can't live without one, and you live outside of the United States., drop me an email about it and I'll do my best to set one aside for you and we'll work out the shipping costs later. I can't make any promises, as I often get more requests than I can handle, but I'll do my best to get a club pack into your hands just like I did with a bunch of you last year.
Okay, I've blabbed for long enough. I really hope you have a blast with these newest packs, because I'm extremely happy with how they turned out this year. As always, I wanted to give you what I see as "Halloween in a box" to make your October even more spooktacular. Can't wait to hear what you think of 'em! Thanks in advance to all of you who help support I-Mockery and all the work I do every Halloween season by ordering one. Have at it, Halloweenies!
I'm sure it comes as no surprise to any of you who've been with I-Mockery over the years, but I'm extremely excited about Halloween 2015. Yes, I go absolutely bonkers over it every year, but in recent times I've been so incredibly busy working on my upcoming video game projects, I've felt like quite the shut-in. Making my own original games is incredibly cool, don't get me wrong, but it's a very solitary line of work. Creating articles and videos for a web site can be solitary too, but it's usually a fairly quick turn-around time, and then I can enjoy talking with all of you about 'em. With games, however, I have to wait ages before I can release them and see how people react.
Ah, but when September 1st rolls around each year, it's like an ancient curse has been lifted, and I can emerge from my sarcophagus to seek out human flesh... or, you know... Halloween-themed cereals and candies to talk about. Whichever I happen to find first.
It's hard to believe how many years I've been doing this annual Halloween celebration for, but it's even more amazing to know that it's become such a major seasonal tradition for so many of you. I've always looked at it as an awesome privilege to share with you all the weird and wonderful things that accompany the spookiest of seasons each year, and I have a really good feeling about Halloween 2015. So a big thank you to all of you who've allowed me to be your petrifying pied piper, leading you into the spooky annual abyss that is Halloween on I-Mockery.
For those of you not in the know, September 1st marks the beginning of I-Mockery's annual "Two Months of Halloween" celebration. Every single update you see on this site from now until October 31st will be Halloween-related in one way or another. We've been extremely spoiled over the past several years with some insanely cool Halloween products hitting store shelves, and this season is shaping up to be one of the best yet again. Just on the horizon we have new Halloweeny cereals (and not just the Monster Cereals), new horror toys, new candies, new horror movies, and even Halloween falling on a Saturday! Yes indeed, the 2015 Halloween season is looking incredibly strong. And keep in mind, it's still very early in the season, so the best is yet to come. Trust me when I say the next two months are going to be insanely awesome. There is no greater time of the year.
(Wes Craven's cameo as Fred the janitor in Scream)
Before we move on to all the fun, it's with a heavy heart that I have to report what I'm sure most of you already know by now - Wes Craven has passed away. The man created some of the most amazing, fun, and unique horror films we've ever seen. Growing up with his films was a big reason why I've always loved the horror genre. Obviously, this is not the kind of news any of us wanted to hear when kicking off the 2015 Halloween season, but rather than drown in our sorrows, let's celebrate Craven's wonderful career. I can think of no better way to honor him than by watching many of his amazing horror films throughout the season. It's what Wes would've wanted. So bust out your old copies of A Nightmare on Elm Street, The People Under the Stairs, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Scream, Deadly Friend, and The Hills Have Eyes, and enjoy the works of one of horror's greatest visionaries.
Now onto some good news: Many of you have been asking, and I'm happy to announce that our classic Halloween Club Packs WILL be returning again this season! Last year, I more than doubled our supply and they still sold out, so I'm stocking as many as I can. That said, they're still in limited supplies, so when you see them go up for sale here on I-Mockery, place your orders quickly so you don't miss out. I already found some insanely cool new goodies for the packs that I think you're all gonna love! Remember, buying a pack really helps support this site in what is easily the most expensive time of the year for me. If you follow us on Twitter and Facebook, you'll know the instant the packs go up for sale. I don't have an official date / time set yet, but you can expect it to be towards the end of September. Just like last year, these packs will be available to people in the continental United States only. Sorry to our international readers, but the amount of time it takes me to fill out all those customs forms would be much better spent on writing more articles. That said, if you live elsewhere in the world and you really, really want a club pack, you can email me and I'll see if I can possibly set one aside from you.
Alright, let's get into the details of what you can expect to see on I-Mockery in the coming months. As you probably already know, we pride ourselves on going crazier over this holiday than just about any other place has in our 17+ year history, so we've got all sorts o' skull-splitting surprises planned for the 2015 Halloween season. We'll have coverage of various haunted Halloween attractions, horrific novelties, my huge annual round-up of the best & worst Halloween candies, horror movie reviews, new videos, craft projects, scary toy features, contests, and all the other wonderfully random oddities we stumble upon over the next two months.
If any of you have suggestions for Halloweeny things you'd like to see covered this season, or you have something you'd like to donate for us to review, please let me know here in the blog thread or shoot me an email. It doesn't matter if it's a Halloween event taking place in your area, a horror movie, an independent seasonal costume shop, some new candy, or some completely bizarro new Halloween novelty... I wanna see and hear all about it, so please get in touch!
To those of you who aren't well acquainted with our annual Halloween celebration here on I-Mockery, I always suggest checking out some of our main Halloween attractions. We have a huge archive of Halloween material on this site from previous years, so while you wait for our newest pieces to go up, I highly recommend checking out those older things to get in the spirit of the season.
-I-Mockery's Halloween Collection: Here you'll find quick 'n easy access to most of our Halloween material from the past. Extremely in-depth horror movie and candy reviews, product reviews, and of course the boppin' Halloween adventures of Count Pop himself along with other oddities. Of course, be sure to check back here on the homepage every day for the very latest Halloween updates as well.
-The Halloween Grab Bag: Much like our "Shorts" section, this is a place where you'll find our smaller Halloween articles, but often covering some of the weirdest stuff we've ever stumbled upon.
-The Greatest Horror Movie Moments: Another favorite is our ongoing quest to document some of the finest moments in horror movies. Sometimes they're moments you're well aware of, other times, it's stuff you probably never knew existed. Either way, if you're looking for some horror movies to check out this season, this is a great place to start.
-The Halloween Jack-O-Juke: Here be our Halloween music jukebox, filled with over 218 hand-picked horrifying songs and counting to keep your decaying ears bleeding with ghoulish glee all season long. Feel free to keep the Jack-O-Juke open in a separate window so you can listen to all of the hand-picked tunes while still checking out the latest article offerings here on I-Mockery. I've already added a handful of spooky new tunes this season, and hope to add some more during the next two months. If there's a song you think should be added to the jukebox, be sure to let me know by dropping a comment in this thread and I'll try to add it before the end of October!
-Trick-Or-Treat Adventure: One of the largest Flash games we ever made... and it's all about Halloween. If you're a fan of classic adventure games such as Secret of Monkey Island and Space Quest, you'll feel right at home with this one as you go on an adventure to build a Halloween costume and then collect enough candies before you battle the ultimate evil! It even auto-saves your progress as you go play, so you don't have to beat the game all in one sitting.
-Haunted House Candy Hunt: In this Halloween game, we pay tribute to the games of the Atari 2600 by creating an all new one in the same style. You must guide two buddies (who just so happen to be from a galaxy far, far away) through all the treacherous rooms of a spooky haunted house as they hold hands. Should you reach the end of the game, you'll have a showdown with the ultimate candy hoarder - The Grim Reaper himself! I've also heard from a reliable source (ie: myself) that there's a secret level select hidden somewhere in the game. But you don't need that anyway, right? Cheater!
-MonsterTime: With our most recent Halloween game, we pay tribute to another favorite arcade classic, BurgerTime. Only difference is, instead of building burgers, you're a mad scientist named Doc Mock who is building classic monsters to save you from the modern slasher monsters who are out for your blood!
-Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum: Doc Mock, I-Mockery's official horror host is looking for a new home to shoot his original show at, but we have over 30 archived episodes you can still watch online. If you're looking for a good cheesy b-movie flick, check out all of the Doc's episodes that are archived on iTunes (some were archived on YouTube as well), including his Halloween specials! You can also find some of Doc Mock's special "Mini Mausoleum" videos here.
In addition to a ton of new feature articles, you can still expect our regular site updates to the Blog (don't forget the archived Halloween blog entries from years past). We've also got some great Halloween contests in store for you to participate in as well. Please show your support for all the hard work we put into our Halloween celebration by following I-Mockery us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get all the latest updates.
HALLOWEEN SURVEY: Share in the comments section below what you're looking forward to most this Halloween season! Is there a horror movie you wanna see? A seasonal candy returning to store shelves? A haunted attraction you've been wanting to check out? Let's get this Halloweeny discussion going!
ONE FINAL NOTE: As a writer, the best compliment you can pay me is to chime in with your comments on any articles I post, and to share them with your friends on various social networks. I can't even begin to tell you just how much of my life gets swallowed up by Halloween for two months out of every year, and the workload is pretty tremendous; so it's the little things like your comments that which keep me motivated and going full-steam ahead on my DRAG-U-LA from now through October 31st. I-Mockery's big 2015 Halloween season has finally begun and I hope you'll join me on this spooky ride once again!
I'm still recovering from all the madness at Comic-Con, and I wanted to thank all of you who came by our booth to support the site and/or just say hi. Had a great time seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones!
Anyway, I'm happy to report that after a long two-year hiatus, Keith Apicary's "Talking Classics" is back, and I have a small bit in the first episode (in addition to helping shoot a lil' segment). It's all about the Turbo-Grafx-16 and its original star. Nope, not Bonk. Keith Courage! Hope you can handle that much radness packed into a single episode. Take a look:
Hope you enjoy it, and more updates coming soon! I'm already itching for our annual Two Months of Halloween to get started come September 1st!
You too could experience the thrill of being mauled at Comic-Con!
Holy crap, what a busy day! It's now Thursday at 1am, and this is honestly the first chance I've had all day to sit down and talk about how we're exhibiting at 2015 San Diego Comic-Con. It's hard to believe it, but this will be I-Mockery's seventh time as an exhibitor, and I'm excited to see all the familiar faces (and new ones) who stop by our booth. Be sure to pay us a visit if you're coming to Comic-Con as we'll be at (Booth #E10 - near Aisles 600 & 700 on the West side of the convention center - here's a handy map). As always, we'll have a variety of nifty things for you to check out, and here's some of what you can expect:
-I'm SUPER excited to be announcing Team Bobo's first new game since we made Abobo's Big Adventure! Yep, all three of us are getting back together to make something completely original this time around, and we simply cannot wait to share it with you all!
-The unveiling of our brand new "8-bit Pixels In Space" pixel poster! Pox and I have been waiting to show this one to all of you for a while, and it'll make for a perfect set to go with the 8-bit Worlds Collide poster that we released last year. Any fans of outer space and sci-fi pop culture in general are gonna LOVE this one!
-Rad Packs! Another Comic-Con first for us; we'll have a limited number of "Rad Packs" available for purchase at our booth this year. They'll have a wide variety of vintage trading card and sticker packs (over 80 total!), along with some toys!
-A set of four incredibly stylish 8x8 Halloween Witch Prints by Strangepuppets!
-We'll still have our giant Abobo on-hand, waiting to pose with you for a very special photo opportunity.
-I-Mockery Button Packs!
-I-Mockery Magnets & Stickers!
-PickleMan comic books! Protoclown's comic books!
-They've been a staple at our SDCC booth every year, so why break with tradition? Free ultra-gory "Dinosaurs Attack" vintage trading card packs from the eighties with every purchase while supplies last! (this site is old as a dinosaur, so why not?)
-The latest videos from my YouTube channel and more!
-Screen Junkies (where you've perhaps seen some of my appearances on "Movie Fights" or seen some of the "Honest Trailers" I've co-written) are holding a special meet & greet at our booth on Saturday from 1:30pm - 2:30pm!
As always, we had an absolute blast last year, so I can't wait to head on down to the convention and get started. It's too much fun meeting longtime fans of the site along with all the new ones. We've put a ton of work and cash into making this happen once again this year, and it's all because want to celebrate the 17+ years this site has been online with the fans that have kept us going! So, if you're going to be at the Comic-Con, be sure to stop by I-Mockery Productions Booth #E10 - near Aisles 600 & 700! (here's a map to our booth)
Myself, Re, and some other pals will all be there at the table again this year, so if you're attending, please stop by and say hello! And yes, to those of you who've asked, we'll be more than happy to sign anything you buy (or any other weird things you bring to the convention for us to sign). We'll even sign your face if you remember to bring it with you.
For those of you who can't come, we're sorry you're gonna miss it, but rest assured we'll still do our best to take as many photos of the convention as possible, though things got so busy I didn't even have a chance to post them online last year (again). Obviously, we're gonna be super-busy with the booth, so getting time away from it to take pictures is always tricky. Once I'm back in town from Comic-Con, I'll do my best to post them if I'm not too swarmed with work... but I'll also be gearing up for our annual "Two Months of Halloween" season, which takes precedence over the SDCC photos.
Again, for those of you who've never been, I feel I need to once again remind you of a very important fact: despite the misleading name, the Comic-Con has MUCH more than just comic books. True, if you're a fan of comic books, you'll be in heaven, but if you're not that into 'em, there's still PLENTY for you to do. Over the years, the convention has basically become a mega-media event. The convention center is chock full o' the latest video games for you to test out, tons of movie promotions, toys galore, incredible costumes, and some truly amazing artists as well. If anything, comics have taken a backseat to all the other crazy things going on at the convention. So yeah, the name is really misleading to some people, and that's unfortunate because they have no idea what they're missing out on.
Be sure to keep an eye on the I-Mockery Twitter and I-Mockery Facebook pages throughout the week. As always, I'm gonna be super busy, but I'll do my best to update them with fun photos and news from Comic-Con whenever I have a chance.
Alright, that's all for now. Wish us luck, cuz this is gonna be one hell of an insane week... again!
I attended another Anime Expo last week, and while Dr. Boogie (my trusty cameraman at these events) was out with a foot injury, I still brought along a tripod to get the job done. I always have an awesome time seeing the amazing costumes that people put together (99% of which are referencing something too obscure for me to recognize). Due to Comic-Con preparations, I only had enough time to hang out for one day this year, but it was more than enough time to get enough funtastic footage for TWO new videos showcasing some of my favorite costumes & sights for those of you who couldn't attend. Take a look:

Hope you enjoyed this latest batch o' videos along with all the amazing costumes, and I'm really looking forward to attending Anime Expo once again next year. As always, please drop a comment on the Youtube videos to lemme know whatcha think of 'em, and please subscribe to my channel if you haven't already to be notified whenever I release a new video. Also, in case you missed it, you can watch my Anime Expo coverage from last year HERE.
And now I gotta resume prepping for Comic-Con 2015! I'll have info about our booth at Comic-Con posted in the next day or so. Hope to see a bunch of you there again!
We attended E3 2015 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) this week, and I just couldn't contain my enthusiasm about about all the video games, costumes, booths, and promotions on display as I walked around the convention center. I'm sure this will come as a shock to you, but I actually ended up yelling at nearly everything I looked at. Thankfully, John was on-hand to film the entire thing (while likely experiencing hearing loss) for you to enjoy. Take a look, cuz you might see some more familiar faces!
As always, we'll also have a our in-depth E3 article coming up next week, including reviews of the latest games and photos of all the sights and surprises. In the meantime, hope you enjoy the video and be sure to drop a comment and/or subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven't already. I put a lot of work into these, so it's always nice to hear whatcha think! Thanks for watching!
UPDATE 6/24: Our in-depth E3 coverage is now up. Read it here!
