The horror genre is home to some of the most recognizable characters across all works of fiction. Likely due to the terror instilled in audiences, horror villains garner large followings in relation to other genres. One of the biggest names in horror merchandising is NECA, a manufacturer that specializes in collectible figures. We got an exclusive look at what’s next in horror from the company.
We got a first-hand look at what collectors can expect to see next from NECA. In the video below, we see some Gremlin statues that are almost too true to life. NECA previously released products based on the original Gremlins film, and are moving onto the sequel. Also featured in the video is the sinister Pennywise. Fresh off of a new film adaptation, Pennywise is one of the icons of modern horror. The NECA figure for the cursed clown includes interchangeable faces, staying true to the shapeshifting character.
The video also features an Annabelle figure. Appearing in several movies since The Conjuring universe kicked off in 2013, Annabelle stands with Chucky as some of the creepiest children’s toys in fiction. The Annabelle figure is resting within her glass, which we see her displayed in at different points throughout both The Conjuring and Annabelle films.
NECA also shows off their 8” clothed Ghostface figure. One of the most recognizable faces in the slasher subsection of the horror genre, Ghostface is the antagonist of the Scream series, and is a mantle that many characters have taken up. The Ghostface figure is fully clothed, and even comes with the character’s voice changer. It’s been nearly a decade since Ghostface got to grace the silver screen, but is set to make its triumphant return with Scream 5 currently in the works.
