ZOMBI Mask and a Victim of the Impaler

I made another pilgrimage the other day to Nightmare Toys in Madison, Alabama. I had some money that I really should have spent on more practical things that was nevertheless burning a hole in my pocket. (Who needs practical stuff, anyway, when there are Horror action figures to buy?) I got some awesome new wall décor featuring the Universal Monsters, a couple of Funkos, and a new Universal Monsters mystery mini-figure that turned out to be the Bride of Frankenstein. A good haul.

While there, and with no one to talk to since the owners, Kristy and Phillip, were out of town at a Horror convention (the guy behind the counter, minding the store for them was nice, but I’m still an introvert who is slow to engage with strangers), I perused the aisles. A couple of things caught my eye. The gorgeous ZOMBI mask, for example, the instantly recognizable “walking flower pot” from Lucio Fulci’s ZOMBI, aka ZOMBIE, aka ZOMBIE 2. (Pictured above, duh.) And this skeleton.

A victim of Vlad Dracula’s, no doubt. Impaled and left for the crows to pick apart, ripening in the sun. Or the air-conditioned interior of Nightmare Toys. But you get the gist of it.
