Horror Highlights: Labyrinth Pop! Vinyl Figure, Grey Zone, Boggy Creek Monster, The Mothman Of Point Pleasant

6 hours ago

In today's Horror Highlights, we have a photo and details on the new member in Funko's Pop! vinyl line, a glitter variant of Jareth the Goblin King from Labyrinth! Also, we have the trailer and music video for Grey Zone and trailers for the creature-based documentaries Boggy Creek Monster and The Mothman of Point Pleasant.

New Funko Labyrinth Pop! Vinyl Figure Photo and Details: From ThinkGeek: "So the default version of the Funko Pop! Jareth from Labyrinth does not come with glitter. Which was obviously an oversight on someone's part. Somebody at Funko should probably be suspended head-first right now in the Bog of Eternal Stench for that.

However, we might pardon them considering they've given us a second costume option with this owl-cloak festooned David Bowie Pop! The cloak itself and his eyes have gold glitter, and the rest of his outfit has silver glitter spangled on it. And »

Tales From The Black Circle: Check Out the Cover Art & Preview Pages from Corpsepaint Comics’ Grisly Graphic Novel About the History of Black Metal

20 November 2017 12:33 PM, PST

In addition to sharing their love of horror on Daily Dead, our team of writers stay busy pursuing other passion projects on the creative front, and Sam Hart is certainly no exception. Readers of his Graphic Nature column know that Hart has a deep interest and understanding of macabre music and terrifying tunes, and he's teamed up with artist Trevor "Morbid" Markwart to channel that passion into an EC Comics-style exploration of black metal in a new graphic novel called Tales From the Black Circle.

Set to kick off an Indiegogo campaign shortly, Tales From the Black Circle captures the spirit of EC Comics with eye-popping artwork and eerie dialogue dripping with equal parts horror and humor.
