Horror fans looking for some one-of-a-kind additions to their cache of collectibles are in luck. As long as they have deep pockets.
Prop Store will hold a special auction of film and TV memorabilia from Nov. 9-11, as reported by tmz.com, with two fascinating items steeped in horror lore up for bids.
Freddy Krueger’s deadly glove from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and Michael Myers’ iconic mask from Halloween: Resurrection will, no doubt, attract several hefty bids from fans everywhere. In fact, both items are expected to go for between $27,000 and $40,000 by the time the final gavel strikes. Going once…going twice…sold.
These items actually were used in the horror films, with Freddy’s frightening globe worn (of course) by Robert Englund, and Michael’s legendary mask sported by Brad Loree on screen.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors–the 1987 installment in the classic series–was directed by Chuck Russell from a screenplay he wrote with Wes Craven, Bruce Wagner and Frank Darabont. The film killed at the box office, earning $45 million on a $4-million budget.
Halloween: Resurrection–the eighth entry in the series that hit theaters in 2002–was directed by Rick Rosenthal from a screenplay by Larry Brand and Sean Hood. A direct sequel to Halloween H2O: 20 Years Later, the film received mostly negative reviews and earned just $38 million on a budget of $15 million.
