'World of Horror' magazine 'Horror bags' peice

Here is a small peice that tells about the new creepy corn snack, that is 'Horror bags'. This appeared in an issue of the British horror magazine 'World of Horror' in 1974. I know the picture isn't too clear, but you can probally make out some of the creepy advertising images for Horror bags, including the top hatted vampire boards, a mask, the bags and boxes themselves.

'HORROR BAGS' Identi-kit box cover

Dracula artwork

The 6 horror character cards and the 4 tombs

Well it has been awhile since I put something else on this blog, thanks for being patient. I will try and get back in to the swing of things again by showing a picture of the box artwork to the 'Horrorbags' Identi-kit game. I really love this type of artwork showing the classic monsters. I always prefer to see artwork on the covers of monster magazines [such as Famous Monsters] and also on film posters rather than photo images; photos just don't have the effect that a good peice of artwork can have.
The 6 horror character cards featured Wolfman, Skeleton, Dracula, Dracula's Bride, The Mummy, and Frankenstein. The object of the game was that you had to mix the cards up and taking a card from the pile on your go, you had to try and make up a character to win which you placed in your tomb.
