Wish is the internet’s very own bargain bin with items coming directly from China with prices that are hard to beat, in fact some items cost less than the cost of posting. Crazy I know, but it’s true.
With Wish it’s a little bit of a lottery where the items may be a total bargain, may be of less than great quality or may even be complete garbage bearing little resemblance to the item advertised. Delivery can by an issue too. Items arrive amazingly quickly, take months to arrive or don’t arrive at all, consistency is not a strong point with Wish.
That said, one thing Wish cannot be beaten on is the sheer scale of items available, products appear on Wish and some, apparently, nowhere else.
Here’s a run-down of some of the items available on Wish at time of writing.
1. Face-Hugger Mask
So in these times of COVID face coverings are required in so many places. Why not set yourself apart with this Alien inspired mask? You’ll certainly cut a dash in this little number. One thing’s for sure, you’ll turn a lot of heads wearing this in the supermarket
2. Supermarket Wrapped Hand
Everyone needs a rubber hand on a plastic tray wrapped in cellophane. Right?
I’m not sure of the use for this particular item but judging by the picture it seems you place it on your table in the canteen at work and see all your workmates reel in horror. Mmmm, OK!
3. The ‘Charnel House’ Pack
When a single bloody hand just doesn’t cut it, here’s a whole selection of gory body parts to choose from. If your looking to really pack a punch you could pick up the entire collection.
4. Severed Head
To complete your very own charnel house we present this life size severed head. The head is complete with straggly hair, a pained expression and a ragged neck covered in loose skin and fresh blood. No blood-bath is complete without one.
5. Bag of Bones
When all the gore of the items above just isn’t your bag, get yourself a collection of bones. There’s 28 items in this bony bumper collection so there’s something for everyone. I’m not too sure how accurate the original price of £242 is.
6. FRIENDS Horror T-Shirt
Set the trend with this T-Shirt inspired by the TV show, Friends.
Instead of the usual cast of the show we see the motley crew of Pennywise the clown with his signature red balloon, Hannibal Lecter, Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees, Freddy Krueger and Billy from the SAW movie franchise.
I might pick one of these babies up myself.
7. Overlook Hotel Key Fob
Own your own piece of cinematic history with one of these ‘The Overlook Hotel’ key fobs. In case you didn’t already know, The Overlook was the hotel featured in the Movie the Shining and this fob is for the infamous room 237.
How cool is that?
8. Rest In Peace Figurine
WOW! A skeleton figurine sitting in the pose of the famous statue, Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’. Not just that, he’s sitting on a toilet. Who can argue that this one ticks all the boxes as a gift for a true horror fan?
Get one of your own and stick it in the smallest room in the house, it’s sure to be a conversation starter when your guests finish washing their hands.
9. Bloody Shadow Shower Curtain
Personally I would totally get one of these things but sadly my wife would never allow it. I can only imagine how much this would freak out anyone venturing into the bathroom.
How awesome would it be to have shower with something creepy hiding behind the curtain?
10. The Exorcist Doll
How cute was little Regan in the Exorcist (well, for the first part of the movie at least)?
I wouldn’t suggest giving this doll to a small child, unless you don’t mind expensive counselling bills, but it is something collector’s might enjoy. It’s a ‘nice’ little depiction of little Regan while in the full throws of her possession by the evil Pazuzu. Everything any collector would love.
Before you ask, yes her head does turn all the way around!
