Fright-Rags rings in Halloween with unique apparel from John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, plus spooky merchandise from the Universal Monsters, Starlog, Gorezone, and Joe Bob Briggs.
It wouldn’t be Halloween without John Carpenter’s seminal slasher. Fright-Rags has lounge pants featuring iconography from the film, a distressed dad hat with an embroidered logo, and a much-requested reprint of the Halloween nylon jacket.
John Carpenter’s Halloween is as follows. On a cold Halloween night in 1963, six-year-old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith. He was sentenced and locked away for 15 years. But on October 30, 1978, while being transferred for a court date, a 21-year-old Michael Myers steals a car and escapes Smith’s Grove. He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he looks for his next victims.
Fright-Rags has unleashed the first part of its Universal Monsters collection. Dracula, Frankenstein, and Creature from the Black Lagoon have each received their own T-shirt, hoodie, socks, and enamel pin.
Beloved horror host Joe Bob Briggs is back on Shudder and back at Fright-Rags. THE LAST DRIVE-IN line features new tees, including any Army of Darkness parody and Darcy the Mail Girl’s own design, plus a pair of Joe Bob socks.
Shudder and Briggs first teamed up in July 2018, for the 24-hour The Last Drive-In marathon, intended to be Briggs’ final farewell to televised movie hosting. Due to overwhelming popular demand, Shudder brought Briggs back for two specials later in the year, Thanksgiving’s Dinners of Death and December’s A Very Joe Bob Christmas. THE LAST DRIVE-IN series premiered in March 2019, and to date has featured films spanning five decades, encompassing everything from classics to obscurities and foreign cult offerings. From time to time, filmmakers and other guests have visited Briggs’ Texas trailer park to join the conversation, including horror icon and Castle Freak star Barbara Crampton and Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer’s boundary-breaking director, John McNaughton.
Every horror fan has a soft spot for Fangoria, but Fright-Rags celebrates its science fiction predecessor, Starlog, and its bloody offshoot, Gorezone. The magazines’ classic logos are featured on T-shirts and enamel pins.
Halloween, Universal Monsters, Joe Bob Briggs, and Starlog/Gorezone collections are on sale now at Fright-Rags.com.
