CHILDREN OF THE CORN COB

One of the oddest elements of the complete insanity that transpires over the grisly course of The Belko Experiment is the seemingly innocuous of a corn cob doll. The quirky little prop is introduced early as Mike, one of the Belko employees, sits distracted in his car, when an elderly local woman suddenly – and startlingly –  pushes the corn cob doll she’s selling into frame. Of course, the action only gets stranger and bloodier as the day goes on, but don’t miss this chance to own one of the most distinctive – and weird – props in horror movie history! VIP Fan Auctions is offering the screen-used corn cob doll from The Belko Experiment to the fan who casts the winning bid. Click here for photos and more information – and place your bid today!

 

SLASHER MOVIE MAGIC

Life in cubicles has never been as dangerous as it is in The Belko Experiment – perhaps the bloodiest horror film of the 21st century. When a voice over the intercom in a high-rise office building orders workers to kill or be killed, the situation quickly devolves into a deadly game where only the strongest – and best armed – will survive. When office supplies are weaponized, the results are nothing short of grisly, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering several of the implements to the slasher-film fans who cast the winning bids. Currently available is a set of butcher knives specially rigged for visual effects (no actors were harmed in the filming of The Belko Expeirment, we think) wielded on-screen by John C. McGinley’s Wendell Dukes, including the knife itself and three partial blades to give the illusion of being driven into a victim (click here for photos and more information). Also available is a deadly wrench and prop rebar rods used in the film by maintenance men Bud and Lonny (also included is Bud’s ID badge sticker, click here for photos and information).

ADVENTURES OF SILVER AND FLINT

John Silver and Captain Flint are like a pirate version of mismatched partners on a road trip. The silver-tongued Silver (Luke Arnold), who knows the power of a story, and the battering-ram Flint (Toby Stephens), whose relentlessness in the pursuit of whatever it is he sets his sights – together, there seems to be no odds they can’t overcome. Of course, their personalities are often backed up by brutality, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering the tools of their trade. Currently available is John Silver’s 15-inch screen-used dagger from the fourth season of Black Sails. In addition, Captain Flint’s gold-handled dagger with what appears to be the head of a griffin sculpted into the handle used on-screen in the final season of Black Sails is also on the auction block.

CAPTAIN JACK

 

Jack Rackham (played by Toby Schmitz) has had a colorful career throughout his tenure of Black Sails. Introduced as a member of Charles Vane’s crew, he suddenly found himself a brothel owner and then the unlikely captain of his own crew (despite being temporarily branded a crew-killer by Vane), Rackham deftly walks the line between con man and hero. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the custom-made brown-and-yellow overcoat Rackham wears on-screen during the final season of Black Sails. Click here for photos and more information about the infamous pirate’s coat – and get in on the bidding today!

But act swiftly – just as the Urca gold wouldn’t be on the beach forever, the auction for this piece of Black Sails wardrobe is ending soon!

 

SEA LION

The legendary pirate Blackbeard (née Edward Teach) strikes an imposing figure. A lion of the sea, the ocean is Blackbeard’s savanna – “everything that walks and crawls upon it belongs to him,” he tells his protégé Charles Vane on the epic Starz series Black Sails. The mention of his name strikes fear in the hearts of honest men and pirates alike – Blackbeard (played by Ray Stevenson) is heavily armed, always ready for a fight and value’s strength above all else. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Blackbeard’s screen-worn, custom-designed pirate wardrobe worn in the first three episodes of the fourth and final season of Black Sails. The costume includes Blackbeard’s vest, pants, shirt and sash. Click here for photos and more information on this amazing example of TV costuming – and get in on the bidding today!

 

CAPTAIN MAYHEM

Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) is a complicated man. He will let nothing stand in the way of achieving his goals, especially when that goal is seizing a Spanish ship full of gold. He will kill his friends, befriend his enemies and take any chance, no matter how dangerous, to get what he wants – and convince others to go along with him. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the long coat he wears onscreen in the third and fourth seasons of Black Sails. The open-front coat (pictured above) is custom made, designed with an eye toward authenticity and intricate detail – and it will soon belong to the Black Sails fan who casts the winning bid.

CASUAL(TY) FRIDAY

The Belko Experiment is a twisted social examination in which 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogotá, Colombia and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company’s intercom system to participate in a deadly – and supremely gory – game of kill or be killed. The weapons used are primitive, ranging from the meat cleaver (pictured above) and kitchen knife wielded on-screen by John C. McGinley‘s Wendell Dukes; the axe used in the film by Leandra and Marty; and the scissors used by Brian Vargas (aka the tall man). Choose your weapons and other props from the goriest film of the year – The Belko Experiment – at VIP Fan Auctions!

 

FIRING LINE

Edward “Blackbeard” Teach didn’t become the most feared and famous pirate of the high seas by being timid. The fierce mentor of Charles Vane, Blackbeard (played by Ray Stevenson) is heavily armed on land and sea, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering one of his brown-and-gold Queen Anne pistols (pictured above) he carries in the third and fourth seasons of Black Sails. Click here for photos and more information on these prop weapons designed by the Black Sails props department for maximum authenticity – and stake your claim to a real treasure from the Starz epic.

 

‘BLACK’ FLAG

In the days of Black Sails, pirates knew no boundaries, and they acknowledged no government rule. They flew the flag of their ship – and the sight of a pirate flag often spelled mayhem and doom for any crew who encountered it. VIP Fan Auctions is offering one of the most memorable pirate flags from Black Sails – the red skeleton holding a bleeding heart, which flew on the ship of Captain Ned Low, an ill-tempered pirate captain notorious for brutality, in the second-season premiere of the Starz epic. The flag is impressive (pictured above flying off the stern of the ship), measuring 12×19 feet and a bit tattered from battle and the elements. Click here for photos and more information, and claim your own pirate flag straight from the seas of Black Sails!

 

THE PIRATE SCOURGE

Historians call Woodes Rogers the privateer and pirate hunter responsible for taming the Bahamas by stamping out the pirates to bring the island nation under British rule. To accomplish this feat in Black Sails, Rogers (played by Luke Roberts) grants pardons to the pirates sailing out of Nassau – as well Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New), whose help he enlists to complete the transition. He asks her to provide the names of those who will resist British rule. She only gives him one – Charles Vane – but Rogers will soon discover that bringing British rule to Nassau will be no easy task. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans an opportunity to claim four distinctive rings worn on-screen by Rogers during the third and fourth seasons – all are gold or bronze and black in color (click here to see the rings) – and fitting of a nobleman with the heart of a sailor.
