Freddy Krueger Fire Pit Is the Stuff of Nightmares

One, Two, Freddy’s coming for you… Three, Four, better lock your door… Those simple words still send chills down my spine. After all, Freddy Krueger is one of the scariest villains in the history of horror flicks. Those of us who grew up watching A Nightmare on Elm Street and its sequels had a hard time sleeping after worrying that Freddy might come to visit us in our dreams. Now, Freddy is back and ready to take up residence as a waking nightmare in your backyard. Only this time, he’s on fire!

UK artist Burned by Design makes this custom Freddy Krueger fire pit that’s sure to give your neighbors pause before stepping across the property line. The 33″ tall wood burner features Freddy’s nightmarish visage, complete with scars and burn marks, his beady eyes, and jagged teeth backlit by fire. Flames belch forth from his trademark hat while his steel-bladed glove beckons you to come closer to the flame.

If you’ve got about $1500 burning a hole in your pocket, you can order your own Freddy Krueger fire pit from the Burned by Design shop on Etsy.

The Thing Board Game Will Have You Suspecting Your Friends Are Aliens

When I was just 14-years-old, I managed to sneak into the movie theater to see John Carpenter’s gruesome, R-Rated horror movie The Thing. I left the theater both thrilled and horrified by the creepy creatures I had witnessed, and the incredible scares along the way. To this date, it’s still one of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen. Now, you can reminisce about the classic horror flick with your friends with the official The Thing: The Board Game.

Pendragon Game Studio has teamed up with Universal to create a great looking new board game inspired by the 1982 movie. Designed to mimic the tense, cinematic experience of the film, the game focuses on the drama between the humans exploring a mystery in Antarctica and the terrifying alien that hides among them. The game can be played with up to 8 players as they attempt to figure out just who is an alien and who isn’t in the cold and isolated Outpost 31 research base.

The promotional video below does a good job describing the gameplay:

The graphic below shows everything that comes with the game, including a large game board that serves as the research base, along with lots of action and item cards, playing discs and tokens, and some fantastic miniatures based on both the film’s characters and some of its creepiest alien forms, including that upside-down head that sprouts crab legs that I will never be able to erase from my mind.

The Thing: The Boardgame can be pre-ordered now over on Kickstarter for €79 (or about $93 USD) with an expected release date of December 2021. The project has already busted through its fundraising goals, so will definitely go into production. I’ll just be a long, long winter until you can get your hands on the game and play it for yourself.
