Our new feature series continues with a look at the amazing work of DIY horror artist Rev. Chuck Jarman, whose eBay and Etsy stores feature an ever-changing inventory of horror movie replicas you won't find anywhere else. Every one of these one-of-a-kind pieces is hand-sculpted by Jarman, and the loving detail on these things will blow your mind. 

Items in his Etsy “Little Shop of Horrors” this week include a full-size replica of Winslow's helmet from Brian DePalma's Phantom of the Paradise, two bust variations on Jason Voorhees – young Jason from the end of Friday the 13th and adult Jason from Friday the 13th Part IV, with removable hockey mask – and a bust of the winged deadite from Army of Darkness.

His eBay “Goblin's Closet” collection currently includes the Metropol demon mask from Dario Argento & Lamberto Bava's Demons, a brain-creature from the 1958 sci-fi/horror film Fiend Without a Face, and two different Klown monsters from Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

Along with being 1-to-1 scale, these replicas are finely detailed, many with hand-hooked hair and glass eyes, and most come with display bases. Each comes with a signed certificate by the artist, and the “Boy Jason” bust also includes a card signed by Tom Savini and original Jason portrayer Ari Lehman.

Jarman's past creations have included the zombies Bub and “Dr. Tongue” from George Romero's Day of the Dead, the Necronomicon from Evil Dead 2, and the “poster boy” hero zombie from Lucio Fulci's Zombie. His inventories rotate frequently, so be sure to keep watch in case you see one of your own favorites pop up!
