10 Days of Torture -The Saw

Buzz Saw

Let’s get right to the point shall we? I’ve been doing some research around the internet to bring you a collection of my favorite and most disturbing ancient torture devices. Just the sight of these devices would give even the makers of “Saw” and “Hostile” a chill down their spine. Even I, your Halloween Harlot, could not help but gasp and wince at the horrors before me.

It’s hard to believe that people could come up with such twisted ways to execute someone. Some forms of torture were used to get people to talk while others seem to have been invented for pure morbid pleasure. Though, once you found yourself into one of these little devices, no amount of talking, crying, or praying could save you. You are damn well damned if you do and damn well damned if you don’t. Your fate was sealed the minute the finger was pointed.

Saw Torture

With that in mind, let me introduce to you our most multifunctional item. In fact, you most certainly have one of these horrific torture devices hanging around your garage. It’s called: The Saw. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? It’s great for cutting down trees or trimming lumber for various house hold projects. It’s also amazing at ripping through some poor soul’s flesh as they are hung upside down being bathed in their own blood.

In the middle ages, the cheapest, easiest, and most effective way to torture and/or kill a suspected criminal was with saw torture. Imagine all the fantastical torture devices in you time, all the wonderful ways to die, and your sorry criminal behind gets shafted to the saw. First, you get hung upside down with your legs spread. Your blood is rushed to your head which slows down blood loss and keeps you conscious longer as your body is sawed in half. Isn’t that nice. This method was especially handy during the Inquisition being used to extract confessions. Some bodies were sawed completely in half while others were only to the abdomen.

Now you can own your very own torture device! It’s not cheap- but it’s certainly worth the money. You can scare confessions out of any poor child or adult that dare cross you! The Buzz Saw has a huge spinning blade that comes and rips into the flesh and organs of the victim. It’s actually and illusion that uses the actor’s own head, arms, and legs. While it doesn’t hang you from your feet and rip you from your crotch to your abdomen, it still gets the “point across”.

Devil DLittle Infant Toddler Costume

Random Fact: Not to bring up dead babies again but… while we are on the subject… I came across a website that mentioned saw torture was used in France on pregnant woman who carried the “children of the devil”. Just a little info to store in your brain if you should need it.

Happy Hunting.

Babies. The other white meat.

Imagine if we could solve poverty and world hunger at the same time? In 1979, Johnathan Swift published a classic satire essay that proposed a solution: sell the babies of the poor as a delicacy to rich English gentlemen. In this way he mocked high society and shed a light on class disparity by his absurd proposition.

The website EatBabies.com was born (excuse the pun) in part to Swifts essay and also to celebrate satire in all forms (though, mostly that of eating babies). The site includes comics, art, and some fabulous recipes. Hungry? Try such entrees as Bab-B-Q Torso and follow with a dessert of Babyberry Pie. On a lighter diet? EatBabies.com has got your back! Babies can be a bit high in the fat department, but you can still go healthy with the Low Carb Baby Protein Shake.

Baby Bunting – Pizza Infant Costume

Some time ago, there were emails circulating that depicted an Asian man eating what appeared to be a cooked baby carcass. People were shocked. However, About.com delved into this Urban Legend and believe it to be a hoax. The pictures were traced back to an underground art exhibit after being rejected as “too controversial” by curators of Shanghai 2000 Bienniale. The article suggests that the image could have been composed of doll parts and that if indeed the man was eating a real baby, he would have been arrested.

However, despite the hoaxes and satires, baby eating can be both fun and nutritious. We already know that placenta eating is popular in Chinese medicine and is also practiced in America to an extent. The placenta is loaded with nutrients and is said to have many healing properties. Well let’s not be so quick to disregard the baby itself. The meat is as delicate as veal. The high fat content and lack of muscle makes for a true delicacy.

If you are having a little bit of trouble stomaching the though of eating a baby- FrightCatalog has a solution. We carry all sorts of infant costumes to help the babies go down easier. Try a nice Italian entree of Baby Bunting Pizza followed by a chocolatey Tootsie Roll dessert, and for the more health conscious, the Banana Baby Infant Costume. Just slide on your favorite food costume, and your baby will be much more appealing to eat. TIP: babies are best served rare with a side of buttered peas and a nice Chianti.

Enjoy!

Deluxe Freddy Krueger Overhead Latex Mask

He’s baaaack.

Seems like Freddy just won’t die. He’s come for another round of terrorizing teens and audiences alike.

Ms Krueger Naughty Nightmare Adult Costume

The latest Krueger appearance is in the new movie “A Nightmare on Elm Street” scheduled to drop in theaters Friday, April 30th. The movie is based on characters from the 1984 Nightmare that we all grew up with. Sadly, there will be no Johnny Depp in this one. Instead, we get a cast of some seemingly familiar faces. The teens come together due to similar experiences concerning Freddy. As each starts to die off, it becomes critical to find out why they are being targeted and what they can do to stop it… before it’s too late.

To celebrate the movie…and creep people out in theaters, Fright Catalog has you stocked on all things that go bump in the night. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, take your lady to the theater in matching costumes. Children will scream and movie goers will applaud. Show up a little early and get yourself ready for an inevitable photo session.

If instead, you just want a little creep in the theater, get one of our famous Freddy claws and prepare for spine tingling fun. Go with a large group of friends or just your innocent lady friend, and keep your claws hidden. When the opportunity strikes you put on your hand and tap your friends on the shoulder using your best snaring growl. They will jump 5 feet out of their chairs! Pick a moment when the suspense is so thick you can cut it with a knife… or finger blades.

Freddy Kruegers Glove

If you are perhaps the most devious of them all. If you decide you really don’t mind if you lose a friend or two. Wait til everyone gathers after the movie for drinking and games. Let them drink their fears away. When you feel the time is right, turn off all the lights. Slip on your mask and Freddy glove…. and….well… you know. Bring the movie to life. The screams will echo and people will run. You just gave them a night to remember. They should be thankful.

Every day is Halloween. Live in the dark with everything that slithers and snarles. Fright Catalog has everything you need to fight the vampires… or become one. You can raise the dead… or walk among the living dead. Raise a cup and open your eyes, because the devils crawl until the sun does arise.

Pleasant Dreams.

Technology

Technology has broken the final frontier, everywhere in our modern lives we are exposed to modern technology. There seems to be no escape from it even if you wanted to. Its bad enough that it hounds you at work, at home, even your play/relax time is most likely festooned with some type of techy gadget. The new fangled stuff cooks our food, operates our cars, controls every aspect of your day to day life, now it will even follow you to the grave.
When you go to visit the dear departed in the future you will just hold your cell phone next to the marker and you will be able to see and hear your loved one from beyond the grave.

Mailbag Madness

From time to time we get letters from our customers. Most are people requesting catalogs or placing an order. Some people even send us nice letters letting us know they were happy with their FrightCatalog.com shopping experience. We also get some jail mail.

Then sometimes we get letters like this.

We did the author a favor by editing out his info. I am having a hard time believing that this kid even wants to write this letter. His teacher assigned this homework and he was just banging out a letter to get it done. Are you really hating on sexy costumes? If there are no sexy costumes next Halloween you might as well just cancel it.
