Have you ever stopped by the House of Mysterious Secrets? You know, the web store with more gore than your brain has room for? I can tell you that it is full of things of beauty. Everything from toys, replicas and facehugger plush toys to movie posters, movies and soundtracks at a very reasonable cost.   This is a store for horror fans made by horror fans with a passion for the genre. Kevin of House of Mysterious Secrets even contributed a heartwarming article for our Italian Horror Week.

Let’s get down to business first and, if there’s time, pleasure later. I’m here to let you know that HOMS has offered up some excellent items from their store to giveaway to you I-Horror fans (I suppose that’s Italian Horror right?).  Just what are we giving away?
