Black and White Wednesday: The Little Horror-Mood Shop of Horrors

Check it out, Groove-ophiles! Warren mags' Captain Company wasn't the only way to order cool horror-related junk out of a black and white horror mag! Archaic Al Hewetson and company had their very own Little Horror-Mood Shop of Horrors going on in their Skywald Horror-Mood mags, as well. Just in time for your Halloween ordering pleasure (provided you have a time machine), you can check out all the spooky and slimy stuff offered in Scream #11 (cover-dated February 1975)...

Can you imagine a mailman carrying that Styrofoam boulder to the doorstep? Sheesh!


  1. Let it never be said that Diversions of the Groovy Kind snubs Halloween.
    It's a dern shame we can't still order this stuff, and at 1975 prices.
    Much enjoyed this!


  2. I always wanted those Night Gallery posters.

  3. Thanks, Groove! Another great post! BTW, the BLS inflation calculator shows that 34 smackers is equivalent to 184 today...that's an expensive mask!

  4. I think the Night Gallery posters would still be eagerly bought up today. Someone send the message to Universal Studios, they are missing on a gold mine and they don't even know it.
