NYCC 2018 : McFarlane to bring back Movie Maniacs and Tortured Souls



In an interview at NYCC 2018, Todd McFarlane has confirmed that the company are "going back to their roots" in 2019 and returning to two of their biggest successes of recent years - Movie Maniacs and Tortured Souls.


Movie Maniacs was a series of 7" scale limited articulation figures, predominantly from the horror genre including Freddy Krueger, Ghostface, Leatherface etc. Each figure came with a skeletal stand containing an appropriate movie poster for each figure.

In the current market a lot of these licences are held by NECA for the same 7" scale, so it will be interesting to see which figures McFarlane can and will bring to market.


Tortured Souls was a series created by Clive Barker and was made up of two waves of figures under particular forms of torture (adult themes). There was also a Novellete written by Barker included with each figure. It is unclear at this stage if Barker will be part of the new additions?
