Don ‘t Lick This Poster

Consumer affairs is a subject with enough maniacs and skeletons-in-closets that this site really celebrates Halloween all year round. But we’re going to make at least a token effort to get ghastlier as it gets closer to Halloween.

So, boys and ghouls, for your horrification: Tobin Bell (also known as Jigsaw the Serial Killer from the Saw series of films) has spilled his blood into the ink that is used to print the Saw III poster, in order to get “the deepest color red possible.”

The posters go for about $20, except for the first poster printed, which will be auctioned off to support the Red Cross, who used a similar cost-saving method to print pamphlets after the blood surplus following September 11th.
