By now, horror fans are likely well-acquainted with Trick or Treat Studios. Why? They’re only the hottest Halloween mask and prop shop business around! A quick browse on their website will yield such results as a replica Good Guy doll from Child’s Play 2, a full-head martian mask from Mars Attacks!, and just about every version of Michael Myers’s mask from the Halloween franchise. Already boasting a design team that includes Don Post Jr., the company just picked up a big name in the horror business. Trick or Treat Studios announced via social media that legendary effects artist Tom Savini has joined on as a sculptor/character designer. If this wasn’t enough, the company also included news of a new mask collection from Savini himself, debuting later this year.
Tom Savini’s team member bio via Trick or Treat Studios:
Special effects artist, actor, director, stunt man, teacher, mentor – all these things could easily describe the career of Tom Savini but none of them do justice in describing his influence on the horror genre. Horror classics like Friday the 13th, Dawn of the Dead, Creepshow and Day of the Dead are but the first rung on a career ladder than has spanned decades and continues to thrill genre audiences around the globe. Recent years have brought him acting acclaim with roles in films like From Dusk Till Dawn, Machete, Django Unchained and Grindhouse.
Needless to say, we are absolutely thrilled to have Horror Legend Tom Savini on our team and make sure to check out his amazing Zombie Face Mask Collection, new for 2019!
Needless to say, this is GREAT news for horror fans and collectors alike. It’s great to see Trick or Treat Studios not skipping a beat in 2019, despite already offering such a vast collection of Halloween masks and horror movie history.
