It’s officially Halloween season again, which means thousands of fans will be celebrating the month of October by flocking to movie theaters across the country on Saturday nights flaunting their fanciest pair of high heels and fish nets to take part in the 40 year old tradition for a midnight screening and shadowcast of the cult classic and longest running theatrical film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Now if you’re unfamiliar with how these screenings work, there are generally actors shadowing what is taking place on screen, the audience is encouraged to participate by throwing items from prop kits(usually sold by the cast hosting the screening), screaming the most vulgar callbacks which coincide with the film and if its your first time, participating in a “virgin sacrifice” which is usually a slightly embarrassing yet fun game to initiate your first screening(Don’t worry, it only hurts the first time). With it being the official Rocky Horror season and a made for TV re-boot on the horizon, which is set to air on October 20th, we are naturally beginning to see an influx of awesome Rocky Horror merchandise and for this weeks version of Creepy Collectibles I’ve chosen to feature this gorgeous Zippo® collection available from The Bradford Exchange.
Details and photos from The Bradford Exchange website are as follows :
