DethBanger’s Holiday Gift Guide for 2015

Chris Savage

As you’re well aware, the Holidays are coming thick and fast and while many of you might be more organised than me and probably many others when it comes to buying your gifts in time, we thought that we’d give some of you a helping hand in the horror department of gift buying. So, we just a few weeks left, you still have time to score some awesome gifts for that horror lover in your family, or for yourself, we won’t judge.

So, without further-ado, here’s my (Chris aka Deth_Banger) Holiday gift guide for 2015.

As Krampus pretty much dominated the box-office during it’s opening weekend, no list would be complete without something referring to the anti-Claus known as Krampus. From Legendary Comics comes the graphic novel Krampus: Shadow of Saint Nicholas.

Ancient folklore warns of a mythical counterpart to Santa Claus, who punishes naughty children every Christmas… his name is KRAMPUS. Michael Dougherty presents the official graphic novel – KRAMPUS: Shadow of Saint Nicholas – based on his festive horror comedy, which expands the mythology of this iconic terror with an anthology of three deliciously twisted morality tales that will leave you praying you are not on the naughty list.

At the most wonderful time of the year, a drunken mall Santa comes under siege from some very mischievous Christmas spirits, a dysfunctional cop becomes trapped with the man who ruined his life and the wealthy town “scrooge” must face the shadows from his past as his home comes under invasion from the homeless. This Christmas, Krampus will make sure they all get what they deserve.

Michael Dougherty, the writer/director behind cult horror hit Trick ‘r Treat, is joined by a fantastic team of creators, uniting Krampus co-screenwriters Zach Shields and Todd Casey and artists Fiona Staples (Saga), Christian Dibari (Hoax Hunters), Maan House (Witchblade), and Stuart Sayger (Bram Stoker’s Death Ship) to deliver a twisted gift for the holiday season.

As we love Michael Dougherty around these parts, and the fact that he directed Krampus, we suggest that you check out the graphic novel of his earlier work Trick ‘r Treat, because everyone loves a bit of “Sam.”

From the twisted imagination of Trick ‘r Treat creator Michael Dougherty (director of the upcoming Krampus and Trick ‘r Treat 2 and screenwriter of X-Men 2 and Superman Returns) alongside a top-notch team of creators including writers Todd Casey and Zach Shields(Krampus), Marc Andreyko (Batwoman) and artists Fiona Staples (Saga), Stephen Byrne (Buffy/Angel), Stuart Sayger (Bram Stoker’s Death Ship) and Zid (Son of Merlin) comes this 4-part collection that paves the way for the Trick ‘r Treat film sequel.

Days of the Dead takes readers on a journey through Halloween history with 4 chilling new Trick ‘r Treat tales. Discover old-world lovers whose romance takes a chilling turn and Western pioneers who discover the dark side of the frontier. Travel to 1950s Los Angeles for a tale of pure horror noir and into the heart of small-town America to see some pranksters taught a lesson they’ll never forget.

Across centuries of Halloween horror, wherever fear lies, Sam will be waiting…

Got A Nightmare On Elm Street fan in your family? How about one of the few that likes the video game of the same name on the NES? If so, we have an awesome print that would look awesome on any self-respecting Nightmare On Elm Street fan’s wall. From London 1888, comes a screen printed piece of awesomeness. You may remember they had these as an exclusive at the SDCC, but they have a few left in stock, and at $20, you can say better than that.

Screen Printed 18 x 24. On French brand Bubblegum cardstock.

This is what’s left of a SDCC Exclusive Limited Edition of 200.

Tube shipped, in a Yazoo Mills tube, with extra care to prevent any possible damage.

Fancy summoning some demons this Holiday? Well, with these awesome handmade Hellraiser puzzle box coasters, now you can, and if things get out of hand, at least you can offer the cenobite a drink. If you couldn’t afford to part with near $500 for the recent Lament Configuration box that we recently told you guys about, maybe you could part with $52 for that very special Hellraiser fan? I think these coasters are beautiful, as they’re hand crafted using aged crafting stone. They come from FairyTaleNightmares on Etsy.

The coasters are made up of 3 different sides of the puzzle box times 2, for a total of 6. They are made of a durable aged casting stone, and have a wonderful feel, and weight to them. The underside of each coaster has four black square feet. If you or someone you know, is a classic horror fan, this is a must have in home decor.

Measurements: approx. 3 inches x 3 inches, 7 1/2 cm x 7 1/2 cm
Thickness: 1/4 inch, 1/2 cm

Materials: aged casting stone, black foam square feet

Color: aged stone, with black recesses.

One of the best films I witness this year was Turbo Kid. It has everything you want from a post-apocalypse film, it’s just awesome. Think Mad Max on a BMX, with a soundtrack that will keep you coming back for more. I can’t praise this one enough. As such, the film has been given a truly epic release in the form of a steelbook on Blu-ray/DVD in Canada, only. Sorry the rest of the world.

Special Features:

  • A 12-page colour limited edition “making of” production booklet
  • English & French Commentary
  • T is for Turbo – short film (5:32)
  • Bloody Wasteland – The Making of Turbo Kid (23:08)
  • Web Clips (subject-based teasers)

The film is currently sold out at Amazon.ca, but they have some in stock at Walmart.ca. Just click on the picture below to order your copy.

The Holidays are great, but as you know, TV pretty much sucks during that time. So, once you’ve finished gorging on that turkey and you’ve pulled a few crackers. What’s next? Well, how about a game of cards, but not just any cards, horror-themed cards. Granny loves a bit of Leatherface, right?

Well, from the folks over at Halloweentown Store comes a set of playing cards in the style of either Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare On Elm Street. You could choose just one set or them all! Check them out below, and score yours HERE.

        Maybe it’s just me… but I think Black Christmas was more of a thriller than a horror flick. Meh, difference of opinion I suppose.
