If it is one market I think is disgustingly under-tapped it would the replica pillow market. Well thanks to the good folks over at HorrorDecor, that situation is about to be rectified and what better way than showing a little brotherly love with the Basket Case’s Belial custom pillow.
SKC and HD collaborated with illustrator Nathan Thomas Milliner who has been making quite the name for himself in the horror art world with his fantastic work with Scream Factory and HorrorHound magazine.
The pillow itself will be about 12×12 with a double side print and will go on sale at 10:30am on Oct 3rd at HorrorDecor’s website. The catch, however, is that it will be extremely limited to a run of only 25 so you better be quick with that clicking finger if you want to pick one up, as I would imagine these will go very, very fast.
If you have not seen it, Frank Henenlotter’s Basket Case is the story of Duane who was born with a tumorous conjoined twin brother named Belial. After Belial is removed from Duane, the two form a psychic bond. When they grow up, they seek revenge on the doctors that separated them when they were young, carrying Belial around in a large wicker basket. The film found a cult following on VHS in the early 80’s and spawned 2 sequels.
This market has a huge amount of untapped potential. I personally would like to see a Jason Voorhees Hockey Mask comfort pillow or even CandyMan full size body pillows. Heck, why not do your whole bedroom with a Hellraiser comforter/pillow case set with Lament Configuration throw pillows.
