'GHOST CASTLE' - Board Game 1980s

With a title change, new graphics and playing peices. Ghost Castle is basically the same game as the previous Haunted House games I have already featured. I quite like the almost photographic graphics on the castle walls, although I still prefer the more cartoon style of the older games. There is another newer version of 'Ghost Castle' which has been out a few years, will put a picture up when I find one.

Be the envy of your horror film fan freinds with these Hammer Dracula official socks available from Asda here in the UK featuring images from 'Dracula Prince of darkness' and 'Taste the blood of Dracula'. Would be nice to see more of this type of thing including underwear featuring such films has 'Lust for a Vampire', 'The Vampire Lovers', 'The Gorgon', 'The Reptile'...

'THE BLACK BOX CLUB' has risen from the tomb

For those that read my previous posts on the Black Box Club will know a little about what the club was about, anyway here is the 2 links to those previous posts:

Well its fantastic news that The Black Box Club will be re-launched as a website which will also have it's own live radio show, as well as wonderful unseen and heard Interviews, photos, bits and bobs that I am sure will delight lovers of especially British Horror films from Hammer and Amicus. The website will be launched on January 1st 2011 and I think its going to be a great place to talk, have a laugh and share those monster memories of classic British Horror films and its stars. The site is free to join. Please do sign up with them, I'm sure you won't be disapointed:

Frankenstein monster shaped jelly candy made in Spain for Candyland of Middlesex, UK. These were around during the 1990's, haven't seen any since, although there are a number of these sort of Jelly sweets around especially during Halloween time. Quite like the cartoon Frankenstein Monsters on the label, not sure what they are supposed to be doing though.

'SPOOKY PUFFS' - Halloween Limited edition 2010

Made me laugh when I saw this in the supermarket around Halloween, the familiar 'Sugar Puffs' cereal getting in on the Halloween spirit by changing the name a little to 'Spooky Puffs' and adding to the normal sugar puffs cereal fruit flavour ghost shapes. I quite like the taste, they both went well together.

Spooky posters

Here is a small selection of posters for various events/occasions. Hope you like them. All of these are from the 1980's. I really love the fun graphics on these especially the 'Monster Sale' one which is very striking. The 'Prices Slashed' poster is from a sale that 'Our Price' record shop had one year. The Dracula one is a Abbey National building society promotion.
