*Pre-Orders Open Now through Friday, July 30th for US Residents Only

The Idea

Like all good ideas, originally the shirt just kind of started as a joke. Freddie (Mixtape Massacre, Bright Light Media) originally saw the following clip from the upcoming Mental Health and Horror Documentary while browsing Bloody Disgusting.

During the clip, Michael Kennedy (Freaky, Time Cut) mentions how a friend had just started watching horror films and made a comment to him of how they’ve been missing out. Freddie tweeted not too long after, “Horror. You’ve Been Missing Out. Would make a great T-shirt.” followed by providing a mock design. Michael loved it, but it also caught the attention of Jonathan Barkan and Andrew Hawkins from Mental Health and Horror: A Documentary. After some meetings and discussions, both teams felt this would make a great piece for a charitable cause.
