Goth and Horror View Master Reels

Back "in the day" when I was a little girl in the 1970s, my brother and I fought vicious, bloody battles over whose turn it was to look into our View Master. Our reels were really boring - Winnie the Pooh, Bible stories and mindnumbing black-and-white photos of Arizona. (We did have a nice Star Trek reel at least).

How I wish we could have enjoyed a bit darker, creepier fare on our long unsupervised Friday nights. (Mom was watching Dallas and enjoying a bit of brandy!)


This set of Dark Shadows View Master reels is sure to command a higher price after the Tim Burton movie debuts, so add it to your collection now.


The Bram Stoker's Dracula View Master dates from 1976 and includes a read-along storybook. I think this actually would have been too creepy for me as a kid, weirdo though I was.


No horror View Master collection would be complete without Frankenstein, also dating from 1976.


The same seller also offers a vintage set of Addams Family View Master reels. (There's another Addams family auction here, too).


This collectible View Master packet contains three reels from "The Munsters," the 1960s horror comedy TV show. It also comes with the original booklet describing the episode "The Most Beautiful Ghoul in the World."
