When it comes to collectible art and vinyl soundtracks commemorating our favorite films and television shows, there’s almost no one better than Mondo. But every now and then, the company also likes to dip their toe into the collectible toy arena, and sometimes they do it in a truly weird way that only Mondo can deliver. And that’s what brings us to their latest endeavor: Mondoids.
The new Mondoids are said to come from the planet Mondoida, and they’ve come to our planet to make friends and eat snacks. That might be hard though since they appear as gnarly, slimy, gross versions of characters from Gremlins, Friday the 13th, Jurassic Park, Marvel Comics, and more. Get a look at the first wave of Mondoids figures available now. Read More »
(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.)
Has this ever happened to you: you sit down on the couch (or bean bag chair) with your significant other, staring at a blank TV screen. “What shall we watch, my love?” your SO asks. “I dunno, how about security camera footage of an old warehouse?” you suggest. “No, we watched that last weekend,” SO replies. “I want something new. But there are so many options! How can we possibly choose?” “I don’t know,” you shrug. “I guess we should just go to bed. If only Chris Evangelista had been born, then he could offer us some suggestions.”
Oh, did I forget to mention this story takes place in an alternate universe where I was never born? Anyway, lucky for you, I do exist in this universe. And I’ve compiled a whole slew of great titles you can stream right this second. These are the best movies streaming right now. Let’s get streaming!

Slashers ain’t got nothin’ on John Wick. In the span of three movies, Keanu Reeves‘s well-dressed assassin has bumped-off more people than horror icons Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers combined. That’s no small feat. It also means the only way to solve this rivalry is to make John Wick vs. Michael vs. Jason.

Do you remember the old Masters of the Universe action figures that gave the characters impossibly buff bodies for kids to play out epic fantasy fights on the living room floor? Well, those retro designs for action figures are being brought back for a new line of figures from Funko called Savage World.

But part of this new action figure line-up is positively perplexing.
Funko has unveiled a line of Savage World Horror figures that give the buff body action figure treatment to some of horror’s most iconic slashers. So for those of you who have always wanted to see insanely muscular versions of the killers from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Hellraiser and Friday the 13th, these action figures are for you.
