New Grave Encounters T-Shirt from Fright Rags

5 March 2015 8:53 AM, PST

Grave Encounters was supposed to be the next big ghost hunting show, but its paranormal investigative team made a little too much contact with the other side when they locked themselves in the Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital for the night. Featuring lobotomization, sinister spirits, and one shocking bathtub scene, The Vicious Brothers' 2011 feature film debut is a found footage fright-fest, with one ghost patient's impossibly wide-mouthed scream leaving an especially indelible mark on some viewers. Paying homage to that scream is Fright Rags, who capture the ghost's wicked facial features on a new T-shirt.

Framed by the icons of a camera's recording point of view, Fright Rags' Grave Encounters T-shirt is now available to pre-order in both men's and women's sizes for $24.00 apiece. The shirts will ship in late April. To learn more, visit:

New House on Haunted Hill Poster from Mondo Features Vincent Price

4 March 2015 1:09 PM, PST

"Come with me, murderess, come with me." Over a quarter of a century before Clue dazzled audiences with its mansion-based murder mystery, William Castle's House on Haunted Hill brought together its own group of strangers for a night of terror in which everything—including a body swinging from a noose—was not quite what it seemed.
