Horror Fans Gift Guide (US)

Horror Fans Christmas Gift Guide 2012 (US Edition)

 

Written by Steve Pattee

 

 

So Dan covered our UK readers with his Christmas Gift Guide, but what about our folks in the US? Never fear, kids, I'm here to offer up my own suggestions. From zombie headphones to a haunted hotel, I try to cover everyone from music lovers to readers to film lovers and more.

Zombie King, Arthur Suydam Headphones


For the horror fan who loves music, the Zombie King, Arthur Suydam Headsphones are the perfect choice. These are limited to only a hundred pairs, so act fast. Each set comes with an official certificate of authenticity hand signed by the artist. I own a pair of the Jam Master Jay special editions made by BIGR Audio, the same company that created these beasts, and if the JMJ's are any indication at all at the quality -- and I'm sure they are -- that music fan in you life is in for a treat. Quality, style, tunes and zombies...what are you waiting for?

Where can I buy it?: Wizard World Market

DarkFuse Kindle Book Club


The DarkFuse Kindle Book Club was on my list last year and it makes it again for 2012 because it continually delivers. It's even more enticing this time around because not only has it dropped in price, but you get five free books for signing up! With those, plus bonus books and novellas scattered throughout the year, you can get up to 41 books when all is said and done. This one is perfect for that member of your family who likes to get their read on.

Jason's Old Fashioned Deli Tshirt


For fans of Friday the 13th, how about “Jason's Old Fashioned Deli”, the latest shirt from Tshirtbordello.com? Like DarkFuse, Tshirtbordello.com is another company that is a repeat from last year. And like DarkFuse, the reason is simple: the company is that damn awesome. Make sure to get on the mailing list for the $10 shirt sales that they run every few months.

Box O Zombies


Before action figures there was army men. Little green pieces of plastic that had no moving parts, but were so much fun regardless for those of us with imagination. The Box O Zombies is both an sweetly updated blast from the past for us old schoolers and a great gift for those up and coming horror fans.
