The Ultimate Guide to the Hallloween Candies of 2006!

It's finally up! I told you guys last Saturday that I had a big article coming up this week and it's now up. I-Mockery's Ultimate Guide to the Halloween Candies of 2006! For the past several weeks, I've been going to all sorts of Halloween shops and general stores in search of as many different Halloween candies as I could find. The end result? I've reviewed over 30 different candy varieties for the 2006 Halloween season! I'm really excited about this piece because 1) it's fun to finally show it to all of you and 2) I'm still on a sugar high from eating all that candy which will most likely keep me hyper until Halloween '07. Lemme know what you think. Hope you all enjoy it!

In other news, does anybody have a million dollars I can borrow? As you know, I recently moved to Los Angeles, and while I did just get a new place... I would gladly trade it for this house that just went up on the market:

Do you see any girls playing jump rope and singing nursery rhymes in the yard?

Sure, it might look like an ordinary house at first, but if you look a bit closer, you'll realize it's the house from A Nightmare on Elm Street. Freddy Krueger's home! I can't even begin to imagine how much fun Halloween would be each year if I lived there. So yeah, I know there's a sugar daddy out there somewhere wanting to give me a million bux to buy that place. I'll be waiting by the phone for your call.

Speaking of stuff related to horror movies, as you may or may not know, I consider the Phantasm series to be in the upper echelon of great horror movies. The Tall Man, played by Angus Scrimm, is easily one of the scariest and most entertaining horror icons you'll ever come across in a film. Other characters such as Reggie will always give you some good chuckles. And who can forget the sentinel spheres - those killer silver balls that keep on attacking until you're dead. Well, something that's bothered me for a while now is that there has never been a box set released here in the states for the series. Even worse, my favorite movie from the series (part 2) has been out of print for quite some time. And then I see that people in the UK get this:

Best. DVD. Packaging. EVER.

A DVD set of the entire series that comes in a big killer Sentinel Sphere? You have got to be shitting me. That's pretty much the greatest novelty DVD set design I've ever seen. Believe me, I LOVE my two squishy Evil Dead "Book of the Dead" DVD cases (especially the one that screams when you poke it in the eye) but they don't hold a candle to this set. If this set doesn't get released this set in the United States, I might have to talk to Angus to see if he'll lend me a few of his killer spheres to take with me to Anchor Bay Entertainment's headquarters.

You can help show your support for getting the Phantasm Sentinel Sphere DVD set released in the States: Email Anchor Bay about it!

That's one nice set, but I have no clue how I could find room for it on my movie shelf.


Night (Guest) on 09/20/2006 7:51 am

OMG, that is one of the best things ever. Not only do you get a box set of the movies but a Sentinel Sphere aswell. Would make for a great prop for a costume.


i-mock-you- (Guest) on 09/20/2006 9:38 am

the people in the UK get all the cool movie packaging. :(


shannon (Guest) on 09/20/2006 2:40 pm

speaking of Evil Daed, Bruce Campbell will be at a signing event in Santa Barbara saturday from 1 to 3, and also if you are interested in horr film houses, the house from Poltergeist is in Simi Valley where i live, so if you ever come out here i could show you. burbank is only a half hour away. also, the Meyers house from halloween is in Pasadena, and the house where Jamie Lee Curtis is babysitting is off Sunset Blvd.

so how is october 21 looking?


Tempest (Guest) on 09/20/2006 6:41 pm

The Phantasm looks boss, but that sphere is just screaming "Safety Issues" to me. I can see it now...

"Man, Phantasm is AWESOME!"
"No it's no, I hate Phantasm. It's dumb."
"Oh really? Then let's see if you like this..." *STAB*


ColdFusion (Guest) on 09/20/2006 6:44 pm

Nice job on the candy thang, bro-dude-guy-man. Be -very- glad you didn't find these new Twizzlers "Tweeters".. Oh I'm sorry, tweeterZ.. because a Z makes it cool.
The last few twizzlers products that came out were awesome (sour bits, goo-filled bits, and rainbow ropes), so I thought I'd give these a shot.. but they suck _anus_.. they're nasty little "candy"-coated bits of.. very thick pull n' peels? very thin regular twizzlers? I dunno. They're about the size of cocoa shmallows.. and are terrible.


richard (Guest) on 09/20/2006 6:46 pm

You lucky bastard you, you have the evil dead box set >=( Speaking of Bruce Campbell I snuck into his bathroom last night,- I mean uh... I'm being Ash for halloween, hey, my sisters friend, lives 5 minutes away from the house were texas chainsaw massacre HAPPENED, I dont mean filmed, BUT HAPPENED. Any who, im off to check the candy thing so I can reccomend my neighbours on what to buy for me, since I live on private property and no ones aloud in here so I can get all the candy I want, OH GOD WHY AM I TELLING YOU PEOPLE, also i need a good picture of pickleman for the thing i'm doing in art class, im painting a tile with my buddies, and im putting pickleman on it, THIS WILL BE PUT ON THE WALL AT MY SCHOOL 4 EVAR. Well, just thought i'd let you know, TELL ME IF THERES ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY IN THE ASH COSTUME THAT I WOULDNT NOTICE, PLEASE?! kthxbai.


Aks (Guest) on 09/20/2006 7:55 pm

Try ebay to get both the Phantasm Sphere and the Kreuger house.... I just read that hurican horror article again. Your cat kicked ass. lol


Katie. (Guest) on 09/20/2006 8:16 pm

Wow. That Phantasm Sphere rocks. I'm sad to say I never saw the movie, but I will defientally have to pick it up.


Kyle (Guest) on 09/20/2006 10:09 pm

I want that damn sphere! Amazon don't fail me now...


King Vince (Guest) on 09/20/2006 10:19 pm

"Damn! That's craaazy tight!"


Angryhydralisk (Guest) on 09/21/2006 3:44 am

Speaking of Elm Street, I've been feeling like I've been stabbed in the armpit since Sunday. Maybe I got mauled in my dreams for getting four cds and the movie "THE DRILLER KILLER" at my local music store's annual sale for 12 bux.

Words can't even describe that Phantasm boxset (Except maybe that I had a Phantasm in my pants from seeing it! And it reminded me of this box-set by a particular Japanese band...).


MarioRPG (Guest) on 09/21/2006 3:41 pm

Me wanty. :(


Doctor dumbass (Guest) on 09/21/2006 5:20 pm

why are they selling the house? it's a movie landmark.


Jesse B (Guest) on 09/21/2006 6:12 pm

RoG, what did you user to lay the candy on?


Re (Guest) on 09/21/2006 6:14 pm

And now I can eat all the candies!


Ninjawolf (Guest) on 09/21/2006 7:34 pm

I really think that they should give way more attention to candy corns brother (who happens to be the one who hides in the attic all the time and is a lot less popular) indian corn. I've always perfered it over candy corn, though its delicous too.


richard (Guest) on 09/22/2006 8:17 pm

Guys, I was at a Value Village to get the clothes for my ash costume and, I was looking through a shitty store bought costume rack, AND I SWEAR TO GOD! I saw, a fucken Boo Berry costume, yeah. If im lying, I'll fuckin... Eat my toes. If I go there again (Don't hold your breath :[|] ) I'll try to get a picture of it. I guess Boo Berry is making a full blown recovery, isn't it?


Robotic_chicken (Guest) on 09/22/2006 9:49 pm

Yo, I know its of topic but check out this, you'll love the ending!


peety (Guest) on 09/23/2006 4:15 pm

England does not look so crap now eh? Thats what i thought.... Shame i moved to spain...


richard (Guest) on 09/23/2006 9:00 pm



Pat v from michagaaaan (Guest) on 09/24/2006 10:56 am

I WANT PHANTASM...that is the only movie that still makes me jump...when i was a little boy i actually went as the old man and i spray painted tennis balls grey and chucked them at my friends .....ahhhh the memories....but seeing that the they get that..and we dont...COME ON were americans....we live for this shit..


Debra (Guest) on 09/24/2006 7:28 pm

Awesome box set design! But as for the sugar daddy thing, dude, when you find one, see if he has any equally giving friends. I could use one myself.


-RoG- (Guest) on 09/24/2006 10:26 pm

Shannon, nope nothing set in stone for the 21st yet, but I'll keep ya posted. That's cool about all those other horror houses being relatively close by. Maybe sometime I'll check 'em all out. Thanks for the info!

ColdFusion, thanks man, glad you enjoyed the candy piece. As for the Twizzlers, I honestly wouldn't have bought them even if everybody on earth said they were good. I just don't like Twizzlers. They smell sooo good and then when you bite into 'em, you realize that they taste extremely bland. It's like eating plastic. Bleh.

Richard, if you need a good picture of PickleMan for reference, I suppose you could use this one. And what about the Boo Berry costume?

Jesse B, it's this weird shredded carpet we bought a few years back when we lived in Stamford. It's always good for a photo backdrop and for losing small things in.

Peety, haha England never looked like crap to me before. I loved it whenever we traveled there, especially Brighton. Really cool town.


Simon (Guest) on 09/25/2006 1:50 am

RoG, why don't you buy a DVD player that can play All Region DVD's?? I had to get one of those so I could buy all the sweet R1 DVD's to play down here in Aus. All new TV's here are PAL/NTSC compatible, is that the same in the US? Cus I guess it's not really worth buying a DVD player if your TV isn't compatible.

I went to the Home Alone house last year, I was so excited, Home Alone is probably my favourite movie ever :D


-RoG- (Guest) on 09/25/2006 9:27 am

Simon, I've considered it before and still might try it sometime, but I'd really rather just see the same DVD sets released in all countries rather than have to import them. Seems like people shouldn't have to go through that kind of trouble to get the DVDs they want, ya know?


Simon (Guest) on 09/26/2006 8:29 pm

Yeah I know what you mean, the whole region coding thing is a pain in the butt. I originally didn't want to have to go out and by a new DVD player, but in the end, prices came down and so I got one.


Yaoi Huntress Earth (Guest) on 09/29/2006 4:05 pm

Best DVD packageing ever.

Cat (Guest) on 09/02/2008 10:46 am

I think the reason they haven't released it here in America is because Universal owns the rights to number 2 and refuses to sell them to Anchor Bay. So it's not really Anchor Bay's fault.


dvdfreak (Guest) on 01/07/2009 6:42 pm

amaing boxset. i definatly want one for my own dvd collection.

Shotgunbundy on 03/25/2009 2:04 am

universal (the owners of Phantasm 2) are so full of shit, they don't make a dvd for it but they won't sell the rights to anyone

P.S. it is not out of print it never was released on dvd
