The Bad Taste Bears Cult Movies series was launched in 2008 at the Heroes and Villians Event.

The mini range initially featured a selection of bears inspired by characters in movie classics, with more added to the range every few months.

Movies such as Rambo (John), Shaun Of The Dead (Shaun), Saw and Edward Scissor Hands (Eddy), as  shown above, are featured in the series.

Others include:

  • Angel (inspired by Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider)
  • Shriek (inspired by Mask Face from the Scream movies)
  • Buddy (inspired by Chucky from the Child’s Play movie franchise)
  • Johnny (inspired by the ‘Here’s Johnny” scene in The Shining)
  • Brandon (inspired by Brandon Lee in The Crow)
  • Rocky (inspired by Tim Curry’s original Frank N Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show)
  • Hunter (inspired by the Predator movies)
  • Alex (inspired by A Clockwork Orange)

Some special edition metallic, silver and gold bears came from the range (including Angel, Buddy, Hunter, Alex, Eddy, Shaun and Johnny).

Other bears inspired by movies, but not part of the Cult Movies series, include Killed Bill (AKA Quentin) and Gilbert (The Creature From The Black Lagoon).
