Mezco Launches the One:12 Collective Silent Screamers: Nosferatu Bundle

One:12 Collective Nosferatu

Mezco is continuing their 20th anniversary celebrations with a call-back to one of the first figures Mez ever produced, Nosferatu joins the One:12 Collective.

Inspired by the poster art for the 1922 film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror, the original “Count Orlok” figure was sculpted by Stephan Linder. The One:12 Collective Nosferatu is a reimagined tribute to the original figure.

The One:12 Collective Nosferatu includes a lot of accessories inspired by the film that were not part of the original Silent Screamers release, as well as a brand new sculpt by sculptor Chu Ka Wa – a member of the Hong Kong team who worked in collaboration with Mez handling art direction. Nosferatu wears a coat, tights, and leather shoes, as represented in the original movie poster artwork. The infamous vampire features three head portraits capturing his inhuman visage, with long, rat-like fangs and pointed ears.

Nosferatu comes complete with a removable hat, a lantern that he can hold in his nightmare-inducing claw-like hands, a rat-infested coffin and lid that he can lay inside, a set of castle keys on a metal ring, and six rats.

Nosferatu is packaged in a retro-style tin lunchbox with art inspired by the animated cartoons of yesteryear; perfect for those long road trips to the Carpathian mountainsides of Transylvania.

THIS EXCLUSIVE BUNDLE CONTAINS:

  • Nosferatu T-shirt – featuring original art of Nosferatu that is sure to please discerning horror fans, this t-shirt is a screen printed, super soft, poly-cotton blend.
  • Nosferatu “Film Cell” – a limited edition, 30mm thick cell that features a scene from the stop-motion trailer used in marketing this figure – depicting the Mezco version of the infamous stairway scene. Presented in a protective card stock holder, this unique memento mori is suitable for framing to display in your casket.

“HELL HOUSE is a mordant, witty, balls-out horror opus that defies expectation. The fear-mongering that fuels the far-right Christian fundamentalist movement is dramatized here with ghoulish aplomb.

“Hell House is a very strong effort… extremely good. 4 out of 5 stars”Craig Reade, Comixtreme.com

Review – Nosferatu


Bookmark and Share

There’s a lot I liked about Nosferatu.  95% of it is great, but there’s some issues I have with the ending.   Written by Chris Wolf and art by Justin Wayne, the story is inspired by the movie of the same name, this vampire tale is set in modern times with some interesting plots involving Homeland Security and a biological attack thrown in.

“Nosferatu” is a dark, edgy tale inspired by the film of the same name. This modern spin on the timeless horror story follows Tommy and her roommate Elle as the nefarious vampire Count Orlok draws them into his obsession with death and disease. Old-world magic combines with technology and terror alerts when Orlok, the Nosferatu, pays our shores a visit.

I liked it, a lot.  The characters are nice.  The fact that lesbians are thrust front and center is good as well.  It’s just the ending seemed a bit rushed and the attack seemed rushed as well.  The lead up is perfect, just my issue is there’s some plots are rushed.  Justice isn’t done and even with it clocking in at 112 pages it could of benefited from another 30 or 40 pages.

Overall, entertaining and worth checking out.  There’s tons of originality here and it’s very fun and it’s an original take on the vampire mythos.  Can we get an extended version?
