Any giallo fan worth their salt knows the imagery of the iconic green and yellow scotch whisky bottle is about as important as black gloves and straight razors to the genre.
This is a 1.25″ soft enamel lapel pin with a high polish gold metal plating. This sucker glints in the sunshine, and will definitely get people’s attention! Comes on a dense, high-quality custom card back, attached with a strong rubber clutch.
Each pin also comes with its own fake mini giallo book cover!
This will sell out so don’t sleep on it!
GO TO THE CAMERA VISCERA SHOP TO BUY!
One of the great things about 80s horror flicks (versus today’s pedigree) is they didn’t take themselves so seriously. They weren’t afraid to inject lots of humor right alongside the buckets of blood. Everything from Evil Dead to Creepshow, A Nightmare on Elm Street to The Lost Boys, there was an art to the balance of humor and horror – something that is most certainly lost on 99.98% of today’s spook movies.
George A. Romero was no stranger to having fun in his movies, especially them zombie ones that made him so famous. Hell, Dawn of the Dead (1978) has a pie fight! By his third zombie film, Day of the Dead (1985), the slapstick got toned down a bit but there was still lots to smirk at – one of the main ones being the childlike “Bub”, a zombie who we see being ‘taught’ by Dr. Logan. Bub is iconic, as are his interactions with Dr. “Frankenstein” Logan, so I thought I would take a familiar scene and update it a bit – contemporize it for the year it was released, 1985.
Y’know if you study that above gif closely, it’s almost as if Jason is giving little Tommy Jarvis a big hug.
Perhaps it’s this demented way of thinking that made me realize when you remove all the murders from Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, it actually looks like some cheesy 80s sitcom. So, I did just that!
I finished by slapping some nondescipt 80s keyboard music behind it, and boom: no longer an 80s horror movie, but an 80s sitcom about a loving family with a big cast of characters and that wacky neighbor Jason who always seems to barge in at the wrong time.
So enjoy. Y’know, now that I’m thinking about it, those wacky teens from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 would make for a great Just the Ten of Us-style show. Hmm…
Here’s the first batch of pins I designed for the Camera Viscera shop. A second batch consisting of 4 total new designs will hopefully be going up later this week!

I whipped up a couple pieces for the Cinema Du Meep dudes to use for their podcast art. If you appreciate 80s cinema (especially the ‘so-bad-it’s-good’ or cult kind), then you’ll love the stuff they do. Check out their site HERE and their podcast Twitter HERE!
