If you are a die-hard horror movie buff and want to start collecting movie memorabilia here are two easy steps you can take in order to start your collection.
Contacting Horror Movie Legends
The first step you can take in building a horror movie memorabilia collection is to seek out autographs from your favorite scream kings and queens like Kane Hodder, Gunnar Hansen, Dick Warlock, Jamie Lee Curtis and Robert Englund.
I am sure that most people, even if they are not movie fans, recognize the names of Jamie Lee Curtis and Robert Englund because they have also been on television. But what of the other names mentioned?
For the uninitiated Kane Hodder, Gunnar Hansen and Dick Warlock have been in countless horror movies.
Kane Hodder is the quintessential horror actor and stuntman extraordinaire. He played “Jason” in the “Friday the 13th” Series, “Victor Crowley” in the “Hatchet” series as well as countless others.
Gunnar Hansen played “Leatherface” in the original 1974 version of the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” movie as well as a whole plethora of other horror movies that include but are not limited to; “Freakshow”,”Witch Hunter”, and “Chainsaw Sally.”
Dick Warlock played “Michael Myers” in “Halloween II” , “Halloween III”, “Friday the 13th Part V”, “The Abyss”,”Child’s Play II”,”Child’s Play III” and “Pumpkinhead” just to name a few.
Nowadays with the internet, it is easy to look up an actor, actress or stunt person’s website online. Once on the website of your favorite horror movie star you can usually find a whole host of original autographed memorabilia.
Some of the items will be in your price range and perhaps some will not be. Either way you can generally pick up at least one ultra-cool item for your budding movie collection.
If your favorite star doesn’t sell autographed items online you may also find out on their website where they are going to be appearing in person for autograph signings.
If that is the case you can bring your own favorite movie item with you for the star to sign.
Researching and Purchasing Movies
The second step you can take in building a horror movie memorabilia collection is to start collecting first edition movies.
If you are interested in collecting movies but are not sure which ones you want to collect, a sound idea is to go online to Yahoo Movies and do a little research first.
Yahoo Movies has a large and informative movie database that will help to put you on the right movie memorabilia collection path.
Once your horror movie memorabilia collection is formed you may eventually want to consider collecting horror movie props, posters and other similar such items.
A good site where you can learn about collecting horror movie prop memorabilia is the “Horror Movie Prop Collecting” website. Happy horror movie memorabilia hunting and good luck!
