How about Cabin In The Woods? Or the 1990 Night of The Living Dead?

I wish, but it has been repeatedly shot down by the rightsholders.
I can say we've got a full set of Silent Night Deadly Night cards (with Linnea Quigley auto) coming in December, and a killer NOTLD '68 set coming with never before seen images. Other things are in the works but we are working out some kinks.
I wish....no go on that. Many of the issues come from licensors and what they will allow; most of them will only allow approved assets - and we tend to only get a few images. Some other films are fine and they let us use whatever we want.
You'll be pleased to know that I have just purchased a sealed box - my first box of any trading cards in over 8 years. From the box design, wax packs, set design, trivia card backs, sticker puzzle backs, it all looks a very well put together and good quality product.
Having the complete set of base and chase in the box was appealing and felt good value, and whilst I can take or leave sketches, I am really hoping for an autograph card.
My only critique is levied at the "art parallel" cards... I'm not sure what makes them "art" cards, and why have 6 random cards as parallels rather than a whole set? Maybe this could have been a 9-card character set as originally advertised? Or a 6-card set featuring poster artwork? Just something a bit different. Anyway, looking forward to opening some packs for the first time in a long time and I'll keep a few wrappers too - something I have never done before.
I have my fingers crossed you'll be able to do cards fro The Thing at some point...

Thank you so much for the kind words and I appreciate the suggestions. We are still trying to dial in our approach to make these sets interesting and fun, all the while working within the limitations of each license. The "art" parallel is just the changing of the colors of the border; we thought by making them only certain cards it makes them a bit more scarce. Again, we are always up for ways to improve these so thank you for the input!
