You can generally tell the seasonal Halloween trend early in the season and this year is all about nostalgia. This year seemed to be a callback to that fun era of vacuumed formed masks and all night movie marathons. A year where the biggest sharks were Goosebumps and spooky black burger buns. Talk about throwback. EZ shares this sense of Halloween fun while still providing designs anyone would rave over. Enough talk, let's look a quick look at some slections.
Mask-a-cre" tee Featuring various masks from horror characters like
Sam and Jason Vooorhees. I really like the design of this shirt with the focus on the sleeves and pocket while keeping the shirt itself clean. Priced at $35.
DeadBox" is a baseball style shirt featuring a "Late Night Movie Crew" seal on the back and front. The artwork calls back to the Terror on Tape compilation with a monster hand squeezing a VHS cassette. Priced at $35
Punchline" features the Grinner as he would appear on a EC style comic cover. Priced at $25.
The "Slasher" pocket tee is similar to the "Mask-a-cre" shirt only themed to our favorite dream master. This is a great design for anyone who wants to wear a horror shirt without wearing a horror shirt. Featuring the famous red/green color scheme and printed flesh design, this design is priced at $30.Death Squad" is covered with custom patches related to The Monster Squad and, as an owner of two custom EZ/Gravetakers jackets, I can attest to the quality. Pre-order is priced at $80.
Mask-er-AD" print. Designed after those classic mask ads that appeared in genre magazines, this 11" x 17" print is limited to an edition of 200 and is also featured a t-shirt design. Print priced at $10 while the shirt is priced at $20.
Horrorthon" is a beautifully designed 24" x 36" print featuring a stuttering TV effect (accomplished by Crawford actually running the images through his TV). Priced at $20.
Kill-Aid" candle collaboration with Horror Decor. Named in honor of Ghoul-Aid and blackberry scented, this candle has all the trademarks of a 80's/90's Halloween. Featuring more creepy callbacks in its design, this candle looks stunning. You got Franken Berry, the CryptKeeper, Raven Bart, Chicken McNuggets(!), and the Kill-Aid man himself. Not limited to a candle, this design is also available as a t-shirt and sticker selection .
Kyle Crawford is a man who does things his own way, personal opinion be damned. He runs his company exactly the way he sees fit and, as far as I'm concerned, it has worked so far. So grab some Ghoul-Aid and enjoy the horrorthon.
