Modern Horrors and Wicked Critter Team Up for Indie Horror Apparel Venture
We at Modern Horrors have been wanting to enter the apparel space for quite some time, but it’s a lot easier said than done. Just like when we crafted an excellent web platform and podcast back in 2014 that now reaches more than 250,000 genre fans a month, we wanted to be certain that whenever we entered this space that we did it with the utmost quality in mind. Turns out… we didn’t know a thing about manufacturing, merch design, or shipping–so we needed a partner. Enter Wicked Critter.
Wicked Critter is an independent Portland-based husband/wife team with a long and not-that illustrious background in comics, art, and design. They crank out original merchandise inspired by films such as Halloween, American Psycho, The Thing, Krampus, and many more–but they’ve also done licensed manufacturing and design work for brands like Blizzard, DC Entertainment, and Image Comics. We knew after a few initial conversations that our goals and ambitions aligned, so we joined forces immediately to begin working on the foundation for what we believe can be a landmark deal for not only Modern Horrors and Wicked Critter, but for underrepresented independent genre films and brands all over the world. More on that in the coming months.
For now, we’re thrilled to unveil and announce pre-orders for the first EVER Modern Horrors enamel pins. That’s right! You can FINALLY rep team MH on your backpacks, purses, hats, or motherfucking flesh (if you nasty) with not one, but TWO brand new designs with multiple color variants!
Pre-orders are live at this very second, so swing over to the new Modern Horrors Shoppe section to claim your pins. Supplies will be limited, and we’ll be sharing early access links to our debut short film, BEDTIME, and other first-looks at future MH projects, gear, and meet-ups to customers that preorder. We’re also tossing you 20% off of your next Wicked Critter order (you’re going to want more, we promise). This is a big day for us, and we’re thrilled that you’ve been along with us on the ride up to this point. We constantly repeat it, but we’re not able to do any of the things we do without the support of the people reading this, so thank you so very much. This is the first of many products that we hope to launch in collaboration with Wicked Critter, so let us know what you’d like to see next, and we’ll try our best to make it happen.
Lastly, be sure to follow Wicked Critter on Instagram and Twitter for future updates and all kinds of other cool offerings in the future. They’re an amazing team and share the same passion for Horror as the rest of us. The Modern Horrors family just got a little bit bigger!”
