These are certainly creepier than the previous ones I posted, and certainly not as influential.

Don’t forget you can still become a backer, an Associate Producer or an Executive Producer on the film, alongside the likes of Neil Marshall, Sam McCurdy and Paul Hyett! Look at our rewards here – you can even get a prop, or a visit to the set!

    Wow! Those are great cards. I love old-timey Halloween crap too! I wish i still had some of the stuff we used to decorate with when I was a kid. The anticipation of hauling it out each year was tantamount to Christmas decorations…where did you find those loverly cards? Ebay I’ll wager…?
