For me, September only signifies one thing: that rotten month standing between me and October! My go-to way to get in the spirit of my favorite month is by watching Michael Dougherty's 2007 horror anthology Trick 'r Treat on repeat. In fact, I so love little Sam, the spirit of Halloween himself, that my house is loaded with Trick 'r Treat collectables: from signed posters and blu-rays to my beloved little Sam Pop Vinyl! So as an extra special treat for all you good little goblins out there, and to get you excited for the Trick 'r Treat sequel coming in 2015, I've decided to share some of my favorite Samhain-themed collectables! Some are decorative, some are fashionable, but all of them are 100% Sam-approved...
1. Illustrated Trick 'r Treat Movie Poster by Steve Jencks
This awesome design from illustrator Steve Jencks is a must-have for any Trick 'r Treat fan, and is an absolute steal at $12. Each print comes signed by the artist as well! You can find this fabulous poster here, along with all of Jenck's other designs!
2. The True Face of Sam Mask from Rockabilia.com
Personally, I can't think of anything more fun than scaring the pants off strangers while looking just like the spirit of Halloween! And now, you can do just that in this awesome Samhain mask, available from rockabilia.com for $39.99.
3. Animated Table-Top Sam from Morbid Enterprises
Not only is this little Sam adorable as crap, but he is actually animated, so he will run around your house and play sounds and music from Trick 'r Treat! While he's currently out of stock on the site, you can put an order in now and receive your own personal Sam when he comes back in. Well worth the $24.99 price tag for lovers of the little guy.
4. Trick 'r Treat Hair Bow from LttleShopOfHorrors
You can find tons of Trick 'r Treat themed accessories on Etsy, but my favorite by far comes from Jenn at LttleShopOfHorrors! At $6.75, this bow is the perfect adornment for any ghoulish gal. I know that I will be buying myself one post haste!
5. Candy Apple & Razor Blade Sam Soap from Gore Bodyworks
If you're going out on Halloween, can you think of a more perfect scent to sport than candy apples and razor blades? Not only is this 100% vegan soap a steal at $5, but it comes with the all-important Samhain reminder: check your candy, kids!
Bonus Item: Snuggle Up with Your Very Own Sam Doll!
Handmade by AmberLillyCreations on Etsy, this absolutely adorable Sam doll is perfect for anyone that has always wanted to snuggle up with the spirit of Halloween! If you're too old to trick or treat this year (booooooo), grab you very own Sam for the ludicrously affordable price of $30, make some hot apple cider, queue up Trick 'r Treat, and don't forget to leave that jack-o-lantern burning until sunrise! Sam is watching, my little ghosties...
