Nice witches guys! One of these days I'll pick up the H3 Witch and Pumpkin from ToTS to complete my set. I'm just not willing to shell out what people are asking for the 2012 DP masks and really lets be honest all you're paying for is the DP name on that vinyl set. The ToTS masks are just as nice if not nicer. Yeah, I know blasphemy!  :o 

One mask that kind of sneaked in the back door from the new 2018 ToTS line up from a grindhouse style movie was the Blood Beast from Beast of Blood which was the 3rd and final movie of the Blood Island Trilogy, an obscure set of movies made in the Philippines. You can read more about them here:

http://www.fantasyliterature.com/reviews/the-blood-island-trilogy/

This is a great mask of an obscure character and I applaud ToTS for making it. This is a mask made for fans by fans. I love the aesthetics of this mask. Definitely on my "to get" list when it's released.

Never heard of the movie, but that's a great mask. TOTS does decay quite well!

'One of the scariest monsters ever and an ideal choice for a mask.
There's a photo of that "chlorophyll man" in one of my old books
about horror movies. To this day, I still find it deeply disturbing.
'Great reply, GoryGlenn!

LOL!, I totally forgot that he was called the "Chlorophyll Man". I guess they have the technology in the Philippines to make mammal monsters out of plant life.  ;D He really is hideous which is what I like about him. Thanks 'huna!

It appears DPS used that same image for the mask's debut in 2009, again full page treatment ~



'Fun review, j2. Maybe I'll go find a copy to scare the family this Easter!

Yours is a terrific copy, jupiter. Even though it was towards the end of the DP run, the latex appears to be holding up.

Fun story: when they released the director's cut of Donnie Darko in 2004, I went to go see it in the theater. Because I really like the music over the end credits, I stayed until the lights came back on. Sitting two rows in front of me was... Frank the Bunny (well, the actor who played him in any event). He was immediately recognized and stuck around for several minutes to answer fans' questions. I love L.A.!

'Excellent FtB experience, Doh! I always stay until the lights come on, too.
 
'My copy of the PMG MUMMY ~



It was created with other "Universal Monster" masks at Illusive Concepts
but marketed through Paper Magic Group in the 1990s ~



It's my favorite of the series because it reminds me so much of
the mask Jack Pierce fashioned for the 1940s Mummy movies ~

       

I want to seal up that awful eye hole in the brow but the mask is
made of some type of vinyl and my tape won't stick to the inside ...  :(

That was quite an interesting review, jupiter! I must say, I'm intrigued by the appearance of the NECA logo on the tag. I wonder what the story is with that. Collaboration? Same parent company?

You're onto something there, Huna. Deranged Easter Bunny is a criminally underrepresented option in the mask industry. Someone needs to fix that!

Well, the ones trying NOT to be creepy are already pretty creepy:

I wanted to just mention this small bit of interest to the Collection Corner thread, as I did in the below thread.
Over in the "Distortions Unlimited: Monster Tales" thread (http://www.thehma.net/forum/index.php?topic=46847.0), you can see the first, great video by Distortions.
Is was a thrill for me to see a screenshot of my very first Collection Corner video featuring the Don Post 1102 Werewolf at the 7:02 mark in this first Distortions video!
I know it's a small thing, but it was a surprise, and a delight to see that!

Heres a new addition you gents might be interested in. Don Post unproduced "long neck" 800 line Cousin Eerie. Sculpted by none other then the queen of plasticine herself Pat Newman. I like this version better then the production version. Long been on my holy grail list, glad to finally add him to the collection.
