Wild prism stickers of 80s horror movies


Day of the Dead
 
These prismatic stickers, universally referred to as “prism stickers,” were all the rage in the late 1980s, which happily coincided with a classic period for horror movies, when the Halloween, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Nightmare on Elm Street franchises were churning out product at an alarming clip.

Yesterday on his delightful Tumblr John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats posted a pic of one of these, the Day of the Dead image above, with this message:
 

you put a quarter into the vending machine and you get a sticker that reflects the light all rainbow-like and it says “the darkest day of horror the world has ever known” on it

there’s a lot wrong with this world but then again check out this completely rad sticker, is what I’m saying

 
Hear, hear! I can’t get enough of the colors on these—the Slaughter High one in particular strikes me as a minor masterpiece. Darnielle and I aren’t alone in our admiration, in trying to find images of these stickers (not the easiest thing in the world), it was noticeable that many of these went for prices upwards of $30 on eBay.
