Colouring Book Theatre: Horror

Horror (1982), World Publishers
It's weird to be doing a Colouring Book Theatre on a Friday but this October and this is one of the coolest colouring books I've ever found.

I discovered this in a shop called Planet of Stuff and bought it mainly because it had Peter Cushing as Arthur Grimsdyke on the cover!

The content is just as grisly and gory.

Grab your (red) crayons  and join me after the jump

Full Colour Monster Kits!

Torn right from the pages of Famous Monsters, the Aurora Monsters of the Movies series is easily one of the "top five" monster kit series of all time.

Hong Kong Gorilla by Imperial Toys

Sure, it's a total King Kong rip off but at the same time, it's an accurate description as to where he was produced.

Mego Mad Monsters Love

I adore the Mego Mad Monsters, it's definitely in my top five all time Monster toy lines (which I'll speak more about this month). While Mego didn't get the Universal license, they created a really crazy series of generic Monster figures that even glow in the dark!

Here's Mego Dracula and the Mummy in their glowing form.

Here is the stunning Mego Counter Display box featuring gorgeous art by the legendary Gray Morrow.


I don't have all of the Mad Monsters in every one of their packaging formats but I am obsessed with Frankenstein, so i grab every single thing I see that I don't have. 

 For more on the Mego Mad Monsters, you should really visit the Mego Museum Galleries it's the best resource there is for the line.

Pressman Movie/TV "Monster Make Up"

It's October and that means the Halloween content flows like fake blood around here. 

To all of you who had this wonderful set as a kid, please let it be known I'm still a little envious of you. These kinds of items always intrigued me in the back of magazines and comics but I never put my hands on them.

Pod Stallions Episode 35: Kolchak the Night Stalker

It's October and that means you get two podcasts, both devoted to scary subjects.

Episode 35 is dedicated to that TV sensation of the 1970s, the amazing phenom that was Kolchak: The Night Stalker. Jason and Brian discuss the TV Movies, the subsequent series and all the amazing influence this show had. We also debate who would make a great Kolchak now.

Flash Gordon Pistol by Lonestar

It should come as no surprise that this was submitted by my pal and podcast partner Jason Lenzi. According to him, this is the only toy that bears any connection to the movie.

It's pretty tenuous as the gun itself is a mix of parts from licensed products made for shows like "Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons" and others.

So strange how little merchandise this movie got, (luckily it's been remedied) I know as a kid I kept hoping and waiting....

The Adventures of GI Joe (in France)

I kind dig that GI Joe's adventures continued in Europe long after the US handed him his walking papers.

More Foreign Joe
