Own a Piece of Horror History

Have you always wanted to own one of the original puppets from Puppet Masters or the titular bubbler from Evil Bong? How about one of the ghoulies from Ghoulies? Maybe some of Elisha Cuthbert’s clothes from Captivity (stalkers rejoice)?

Well, what are you doing this weekend?

Cause this Saturday the 11th, Fangoria, Dreadcentral.com and ShockTillYouDrop.com are sponsoring a live horror-themed charity auction at Premiere Props in El Segundo.

There will be a preview from 9am – 11am, with the auction begining at 11am.

The charity in question is the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
