Smell Like Your Favorite Horror Film with Lathyrus Soaps on Etsy (with Mini Product Review & Discount Code)

Have you ever wondered what the scent in a particular horror film or of a specific character would be (besides blood, fear and rotting flesh) or wanted to smell like you had just fallen out of the film itself? Now thanks to Lathyrus Soaps on Etsy, you can; the store offers a range of bath products such as bath bombs, body butters, wax melts, face masks, shower gels, makeup brush cleaners, lip scrubs, soaps, body mists, body lotions, body scrubs and mystery boxes, all of which are inspired by some of the most prolific genre films and characters.

Lathyrus Soaps is out of Bloomington, Indiana. All of the products are made from natural material and are super affordable for the quality you receive (more on that later, mini product review further down). Prices range from $4 to $20 with an average price of $8 which when compared to big store names is more than a decent price range.

A new body butter scent was announced via the store’s social media inspired by everyone’s favorite bioexorcist called “The Ghost With The Most” (scented with coconut and lime with a hint of vanilla). I for one cannot wait for my order to arrive.

Mini Product Reviews

I have personally tried 5 products from Lathyrus Soaps (still have a face mask to try and another body butter on the way) and have loved every single one of them. Below is a small review of each product I have tried as well as a discount code if you would like to try any of them or any of the other amazing products offered.

*Disclaimer*: Some of these products were sent to me to test out and I am a brand representative, but all reviews are 100% my true opinions of the products as I would not back products I truly did not feel were of quality.

You’ll Float Too Body Butter 

Inspired by: Stephen King’s IT

Scented with: Cotton Candy, Caramel Apples and Funnel Cakes

Review: Scent is strong and long lasting without being overbearing (when applying in the morning, it lasts the majority of the day and when applying at night, I can still smell it in the morning). Smell given is true to the scent description (while wearing it, on more than one occasion I had people say “what smells so good” and “I smell caramel/maple syrup, I don’t know what it is but it smells really good” as I’ve walked by them). After applying it, my skin has a beautiful glow (not Twilight vampire shimmer but healthy looking glow) and it feels soft all day.

Buy: You’ll Float Too Body Butter

Cabin In The Woods Body Butter

Inspired by: The Cabin in the Woods

Scented with: Crisp Leaves, Musk, Bergamot, Clove and Vanilla

Review: Scent lasting power and effect are the same as above. All of the elements blend together nicely and give almost a lily of the valley scent. This is my personal favorite so far.

Buy: Cabin In The Woods Body Butter

The Teen Dream Body Butter

Inspired by: Jawbreaker (Courtney more specifically)

Scented with: Cherry Blossom and Peach (dupe for VS Love Spell)

Review: Scent is listed as being a dupe for VS’ Love Spell, it truly is, but I personally feel that it smells a bit better than Love Spell and is literally half the price (it also lasts longer). The green and pink/purple color swirl makes the product look as beautiful as it smells (a lot like candy).

Buy: Teen Dream Body Butter

Camp Blood Body Butter

Inspired by: Friday the 13th franchise

Scented with: Patchouli, lavender, lily and lime

Review: Patchouli can be a little overbearing, but not in this case, it blends so well with the other scents that it is hardly noticeable. It has a clean scent while smelling like a refreshing day at the lake running for your life (without the sweat and fear smells).

Buy: Camp Blood Body Butter

Rules of Halloween Lip Scrub

This is one of the products I was sent and is not currently listed on the store page, so I cannot say what it is scented with or link it for purchase. It smells a bit like candy corn and while using it, it tastes a bit like candy at first with a hint of cinnamon that lasts on the lips. My lips are super soft and the color is even improved after using.

Deranged Minds Entertainment Launches Indiegogo for Upcoming Film ‘Inverted’

Following the success of their first feature film (Red Eye), the immensely passionate and talented Tristan Clay and Destinie Orndoff of Deranged Minds Entertainment have begun crowdfunding for their next feature, Inverted.

INVERTEDOFFICIALTEASER1

What is Inverted?

Synopsis:

In a world paralleling the 70’s, a centuries-old cult known as the “Inverts” kidnap four individuals against their will to recruit for the holy war against the second coming of Christ. From a homosexual hippie, drug- addicted prostitute, man in drag, and a pedophile priest; they’re all deemed to be choice victims to invert through various initiations that push past the most brutal of boundaries.

Although this is an indie film, Clay and Orndoff have snagged some pretty recognizable names. Inverted is set to star Destinie Orndoff (Red Eye), Trevor Dow (Rise), Jennifer Nangle (Irrational Fear), Lynn Lowry (The Crazies), David McMahon (Rogue Island), Tommie Vegas (Party Night) and Maria Olsen (Lords of Salem).

Clay and Orndoff had this to say about the film:

“With this film, our main goal isn’t only to deliver an insanely intense, horrific piece of cinema; but to improve from our past work. To the character development, how we present our story, the special effects, everything. We promise to bring you a horror film, made by horror fans. We have learned so much since we shot our first feature and want to make Inverted go above and beyond.”

The chosen platform is Indiegogo. Like all other crowdfunding projects, there are loads of perks; everything from t-shirts, DVDs and Blu-rays to parts in the film. Inverted has a flexible goal of $17,666. With a month left on the campaign, the film is 3% funded with $443 of the total goal.  Backers can be assured that 100% of the funds will go directly to the film as the creators have provided a breakdown of where your donations are going.

‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Fandom Doc ‘FredHeads’ Gets Poster & Teaser

A Nightmare on Elm Street has been terrifying viewers since the debut of the first franchise film in 1984. Since then, the franchise has created a total of seven franchise title films, a Friday the 13th crossover, a 2010 reboot and numerous documentaries. No matter how terrifying the films may be, fans love Freddy, his legendary one-liners and his gruesome kills. A new fandom documentary, FredHeads, has gotten a poster and a teaser and has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help finish production.

FredHeads

The main focus of FredHeads analyzes how being a fan can change your life. Filmmakers have been traveling the country to speak to fellow fans and filmmakers. Director Paige Troxell credits the Nightmare film franchise for saving her life stating:

“In my darkest times I have turned to Elm Street. It is a survival story, it is my best friend, it is my comfort, and it is my home,” gushes Troxell. “I knew that there were others out there who saw this film for more than just the typical slasher. It is my goal to bring to life each and every story; to show the world that this community stands together, that we are a support team for each other.”

The documentary also includes interviews with franchise alumni Lisa Wilcox, Robert Kurtzman, Tuesday Night, Miko Hughes, Ricky Dean Logan and more.

Venn Pictures and Northgate Pictures have started a campaign via Indiegogo to help raise the remaining funds needed to finish production. Perks for contributing to the campaign include pre-order of the limited edition DVD to ensure backers see the documentary first, t-shirts, pins, posters, soundtracks and one-of-a-kind perks from franchise alumni, including prop replicas signed by Freddy himself, Robert Englund.

Jen and Sylvia Soska have been blazing a path for women in the horror industry since the release of Dead Hooker in a Trunk. Since that release, they have gone on to make even more goretastic films such as American Mary and See No Evil 2; they are even hosting their own horror survival game show on GSN called Hellevator (also available on Netflix). There doesn’t appear to be any stopping the Twisted Twins, and we’re all just fine with that. Horror t-shirt company, Terror Threads, has teamed with the Soska sisters to bring a new line of officially licensed merch.

The Soska collection includes t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, cellphone cases and slipmats. It features two stunning designs, Stitched (artwork by horror artist Joel Robinson and is black light reactive) and Double Trouble (artwork by Toto6 x Ama Lea).

The most popular item from the Soska sisters collection appears to be the hoodies which have already sold out in both designs, but further expressed interest in them may bring a new listing of them.
