Third Annual ‘Alien’ Day Set for April 26th

Are you looking to express your fandom by purchasing some new merchandise based on a beloved franchise after the conclusion of Harry Potter Book Night, but before the launch of Star Wars’ May the Fourth extravaganza and Force Friday? Well, Twentieth Century Fox has just the event for you: the third annual Alien Day!

Set for April 26th, 2018 (because “4/26” sounds kind of like “LV-426,” the name of the infamous planet where the crew of the Nostromo encounter the viscous little facehugger), the event will include everything from sale prices on digital purchases of classic Alien movies to an Aliens pinball tournament. Special products will be available from such companies as Dark Horse Comics, Fright Rags, Neca, Funko, Mondo, Mattel, and Diamond Select. read more

HNN’s Coverage of The 2018 New York Toy Fair

This weekend, the Jacob Javits Center in New York City played host to the cultural phenomenon known as Toy Fair 2018.  For four glorious days, national and international toy producers, re-sellers and developers converged on the West Side of Manhattan to display their current products and provide a glimpse of what the future holds for their catalogs as well.

Horror continues to play an integral part in the toy market, and Horror News Network was there to cover all of the excitement and wonderfully-gory products that both casual and hardcore collectors (and their kids!) can expect throughout 2018 and even into next year.  Staff Journalists Larry Dwyer and Sean McLaughlin made the trek ready to report, and thanks to an assist by our friends at Action Figure Collectors (www.actionfigurecollectors.com) we were able to provide thorough coverage of all announcements and news relevant to the horror masses. read more

Horror Hunting! Edition #25

      Welcome to another chilly, snow-covered edition of Horror Hunting!.  As this winter continues to punish the Northeast for some unknown, undeserved reason, I think it’s appropriate to warm our thoughts with the splendor and magnificence of our favorite horror holiday of the year, Halloween!  We’ll also take a look back at a simpler time, when terror came from above as well as from within.  Remember when we were scared/hoping for a violent alien invasion of Earth?  Hopefully the much-rumored Independence Day sequel can install a little more of that soon, but in the meantime check out the collectable goodies lined up for you….. read more
