Looking for Contributors/Guest Writters for Shitmas 2014!

(Banner via Christine Larsen)

There are few things that bum me out more then the days few after Halloween, we wait all year for for our favorite day to arrived and then it's over before you know it . . .
 But in the last couple years the end of Halloween has made way for the coming of "Shitmas" here at The Shit Movie Fest Blog!
Yeah I know that Halloween's body isn't even cold yet, but in order to get everything together in time for December, I gotta ask now who's in for a forth helping of Shitmas?!?

There are Reviews or Lists about Holiday Movies, features on Old-school Toys, a few Giveaways/Contests, etc.

Spotlight on FUNKO's "Horror Classics" Vinyl Figures!

Doing a spotlight this evening on FUNKO's Horror Classics "Mystery Minis" Figures! Released in 2013, these vinyl toys are cutesty versions of some of Horror's biggest and best know Icons!
Thanks to the kindness of "Chris Tank" and some sellers on Ebay I finally got myself a complete set! 

When you buy a box you are in the dark of figure you are going to get, hence the name "Blind Box"! The box in the middle shows what figures are up for grabs and the rarity of each one. The rarer one is the set are often referred to as "Chase Figures"!

In Wisconsin, No One Can Hear You Scream: Ed Gein, and the Horrors of Rural America

Arrested in 1958, Ed Gein fast became the poster boy for depravity and sexual deviation. The ultimate mother's boy gone wrong, Gein's farmhouse of horrors introduced his small Wisconsin hometown and the country to the sinister world of a man society had written off as a loner, a quiet man, and a devoted son. 

Littering Gein's farmhouse were the remains of a myriad of body parts from the corpses whose graves Gein had robbed. Skulls become bowls for soup, human skin became macabre lampshades and upholstery, and pieces of intact hides were used by Gein to play dress-up. The centerpiece of Gein's den of ghoulishness was the decapitated body of one of his two murder victims strung up, and dressed out in the same manner of a deer.
