I haven’t updated this since 2017 and most of the toys I had on the previously list I was lucky enough to track down most of them.
SO HERE IS THE LIST FOR 2018!
-My Pet Monster- In 1986 American Greetings introduced a stuffed plush that was blue, have fangs and orange cuffs. What could a kid ask for more?
-Castle Grayskull- who wouldn’t want a castle from Eternia? And the green facade with a skull face drawbridge is an extra plus! This structure is part of the Masters of the Universe toy line from Mattel. However I wish it was still the price listed below!
Battlecat- (Mattel 1984) this was originally a mold from a previous toy line from Mattel. They just basically slapped on a cool forest neon green color and gave him yellow stripes. Although is arms and legs are movable he does come with a saddle and helmet when HE-Man needs to ride into battle!
Dream Glow Barbie (1985) Also by Mattel this barbie had a dress with a star print THAT GLOWS IN THE DARK!!! I remember one of my friends had this barbie and I would always go to her house to play with that barbie! She was one of toy wish list wants for years. She was so cool even her umbrella matched her gown and of course it also glowed in the dark! The commercial below would send any little girl to there parents demanding for this dolls for their birthday. I know I did!
INHUMANOIDS METLAR- these massively cool 14 inch figures has some of there parts that also glow in the dark. I have Tendril but I still want to track down the rest of the pack. Also Metlar is the leader of this bad guy group and who wouldn’t want to get the leader of the pack? Back when they were first released in 1986 kids were too scare to buy these toys however when they grew up they must of release how awesome they are because finding one in the box will cost you!
Until next time!
It came to my attention that a couple of weeks ago of a message I received inquiring if I had more than two IG accounts.
I do not.
My personal one is @lady.cult
And my non personal one is @retro.cult:
Why do I have two accounts?
That is a great question~!
I started the retro cult page as vintagehorrorads
It was a page solely dedicated to old newspaper ads of Horror movie ads. However about a year into having the page I decided “Man I love all things retro, exciting, cool and kitsch! Why am I going to contain it in just my personal one?! Life should not be limiting why should my media platform be the same?!”
So I made the decision to turned that into that page that it is today and I haven’t looked back!
But I decided that two accounts was my personal limit and I have been consistent in the decision for the last couple of years.
There might be similar accounts as mine but there will never be a similar person like me.
Thank you for hearing me out! I appreciate the constant kindness and friendships I have made on this social media platform!
Until next time!
Today’s movie of the day is 1981’s Shock Treatment directed by Jim Sharman. It stars Jessica Harper, Cliff De Young, and Richard O’ Brien.
This movie is a mixture of comedy, drama and musical tightly rolled into a 94 minute long movie.
It is about just married couple Janet Majors and Brad Majors who go to a live taping of a show done in Denton, Ohio. In fact the whole town is own by Fast Food King Farley Favors and since he owns the whole town he decided to movie the whole town of Denton, Ohio inside a studio and named it Denton Studios.
The town is divided into a couple of categories: audience members, the ones who get the own show, background cast and crew. While in the audience Brad and Janet are picked to go on a TV game called “Marriage Maze.” Unfortunately the prize is making Brad go to Dentonvale (a hum drum soap opera) prison which revolves around a mental hospital.
In the meanwhile Janet is slowly made into some kind of TV reality like superstar who is made over to sing and dance at a drop of Farley Flavors hat. Farley Favors is a schemer though because he wanted both Brad and Janet to come onto that show to break them apart.
The rest of the movie has a bit of twists and turns along the way but in the end Brad and Janet realized that they are meant to be together!
One of my favorite things about this movie is the amazing soundtrack! Compared to the other movie Richard O’ Brien wrote “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” I favor this soundtrack way more!
Below is one of my favorite songs from the movie soundtrack:
In no way is this movie a sequel to Rocky Horror Picture Show however there characters that are prominent in Shock Treatment that were in Rocky Horror.
Fun Fact: This movie was based on the concept of making fun of TV shows that were on the air during that time!
Until Next time!
