31 Days of Horror – Day 8: Angry Video Game Nerd – Halloween Episodes. I watched a bunch of AVGN Halloween episodes (Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Dracula, Frankenstein, Castlevania, Halloween, A Texas Chainsaw Massacre) tonight as I toiled away in the workshop.
It’s October again and that means it’s time for the 31 Days of Horror. An annual tradition that finds me immersing myself in all things horror. Whether it be scary movies or books, horror themed comic books or video games, everyday has a touch of darkness. For day 1, I’ll be taking a stroll through 8-bit Transylvania with Simon Belmont as I dust off the Nintendo classic Castlevania and prepare to do battle with Dracula.
Kill People 8Bit13, is the latest bootleg resin action figure from Jack’s Attic. Dropping on Saturday, April 25, 2015, at 12:00 PM EST for $30, this release is limited to only twenty (20) hand numbered and signed pieces.
Arriving in the familiar blue and purple colorway of a certain video game camp slasher, this Kill People release will come attached to a vintage, repurposed Nintendo cartridge complete with a custom authentic style game label and hang tag ready for display.
Each figure will also include a scratch-off trading card for an opportunity to win a one-of-a-kind “Bloody Gold” variant figure.

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest (1987)
Slender: The Arrival (2013) from Blue Isle Studios
“One of the most terrifying games in recent memory.”
“As a sort-of myth born on the Internet, Slender Man is probably one of the first genuinely compelling monsters to grace pop culture in a long time. The related games and their variants and mods, as well as the stories and YouTube videos surrounding them, show the genesis of 21st century folklore. While a little rough around the edges, The Arrival is fascinating because it plays on modern fears through a modern medium. For that, it has managed to breathe new life into a genre once thought dead. Slender is not an experience you will soon forget, and at $10, is priced just about right for its short length. Just be sure to play at night with headphones for full effect. Good luck.”
