The killer known as "Ghost Face" has stalked many a high school femme fatale and stabbed his way through anyone who got in his path.

It's been nearly 10 years since the specter of death has struck fear in the minds of all Woodsboro residents, so we figure you're ready for another run! We'll give you a head start...

Hot Toys Finally Digs Up Marvel Zombies

Hot Toys - Marvel Zombie - Zombie Deadpool collectible figure
Do you know how hard it was to get Marvel Zombies action figures BEFORE Marvel was owned by Disney?  ...Pretty damn hard! Marvel Zombies was a hit with comic fans and Marvel left it to Diamond Select to release three figures to celebrate the title. Zombie Hulk, Zombie Colonel America and Zombie Spider-Man are still favorites of action figures fans and fetch a hefty price today. Despite the popularity of the title, Marvel shut down further merchandising after a string of sculptural pieces, stating they were concerned fans would get confused by the horrific look of their iconic heroes and the license would be tarnished in the long run. Years later, we'd get a Zombie Sabretooth and Zombie Magneto to add to our collection, but again, despite the excitement behind these releases, it seems the breaks were put on further undead Marvels. 

Now, with Disney firmly holding the reigns of power, I was shocked to see Marvel Zombies returning to the comic racks and with it, renewed interest in Marvel Zombie TOYS!! 12 inch action figure masters Hot Toys take first swing at this license with Zombie Deadpool...because of course they are.

The falling apart. We are most definitely going back into lockdown for the holidays. There's a psychopath in the White House who screams into Twitter every 5 minutes and it doesn't look like he intends to stop. So....what can we do to turn things around? How about jewel encrusted Yoda years on a headband? See...we know what the people want. 

Presenting, the Star Wars x Gigi Burris collaboration featuring a six-piece limited edition unisex collection inspired by the original Star Wars trilogy. When it came to the development of this collaboration, Burris took cues from the wise and beloved Yoda: "Do. Or do not. There is no try.” She founded her female-owned brand to preserve the romantic craft of millinery, working tirelessly to ensure timeless design and craftsmanship in every piece produced. Thoughtful materials and supporting local New York City production are at the forefront of this capsule collection as it has been in every past collection for the brand.

A Toy Store Near You
A Toy Store Near You, the docuseries that takes you behind the scenes of some of the world's quirkiest, most beloved vintage toy stores and the tough, tight-knit, and sometimes kooky personalities that bring them to life, is dropping its second season on Christmas Day 2020.

The first season of A Toy Store Near You, brought to you by The Nacelle Company (The Toys That Made Us, The Movies That Made Us, Disney +'s Behind the Attraction, etc), focused on the way that the independent toy store community was responding to COVID closures.

SECRET ZOO Comes to Digital & DVD on November 10th

Secret Zoo movie poster
Dissatisfied with his temp position at a well-known law firm, attorney Tae-su takes an unexpected assignment to help revitalize a failing zoo. Seeing this as a chance to prove himself and move up in the firm, Tae-su discovers instead that the zoo in fact has no real animals. What's worse, he only has 3 months to turn around a seemingly lost cause into a golden opportunity. Enlisting the help of the zoo's bewildered staff, he comes up with an unorthodox solution: have the humans dress up as animals and put on a show for guests. 

And when a video of Tae-su in full polar bear outfit goes unexpectedly viral, the zoo suddenly finds itself the center of attraction for thousands of visitors. But Tae-su's achievements may be undercut by the very firm he thought he was helping, and he'll have to make a decision between loyalty to the corporate success he so long dreamed for and his newfound sense of fulfillment at this most unusual of zoos.
