poker

There are few threats as unnerving as a red-hot poker being brandished by a menacing madman. It’s a recurring theme in film and television from Cecil B. DeMille’s Samson and Delilah to Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, it’s the trope that keeps on terrifying. Witches of East End also used used it to perfection in the first season episode “A Few Good Talisman” (pictured above) – and VIP Fan Auctions is offering the fan who conjures the winning bid to bring home their very own glowing-hot fireplace poker. There is a bit a Hollywood magic mixed in with this ominous tool – it’s actually the remote-control hot poker used in the episode, which is battery activated and features a wireless light dimmer for all the scares without the scars. The auction also includes a creepy hair-doll talisman. Click here for photos and more information, and claim your piece of TV visual effects today!
