Happy start of the holiday season, dear readers! It’s time once again for Daily Dead’s fifth annual Holiday Gift Guide, where this writer hopes to save you some money as you shop for all the horror lovers in your life (or maybe you’re looking to spoil yourself, too, which is totally cool) over the coming weeks. For our first day of the 2017 HGG, we’re going to take a look at a ton of Black Friday deals coming this week, and some sites have already begun their sales, so you may be able to get a jump start on those gift lists even now.

And since there are a bunch of sales and deals that have yet to be announced, be sure to check back right here on Daily Dead this Friday for more Black Friday deals and many more gift ideas perfect for genre enthusiasts and the like.

Also, we’ve once again put together some really cool Holiday Gift Guide prize packs this year, and for your chance to win one, just send an email to contest@dailydead.com with “Holiday Gift Guide” in the subject line and be sure to include your full name and mailing address as well for your shot at some free horror-tastic goodies (limited to those who are eighteen years of age or older that live in the United States. Only one entry per household will be accepted). Happy shopping, everyone!

Amazon: As usual, Amazon is running an insane amount of Lightning Deals for Black Friday, and they’ve already been keeping busy over there with tons of discounts that have gone up this week. It’s hard to anticipate all the different deals coming in the next few days, but for those looking for cheap movies and/or video games, the aforementioned links should help you keep tabs on all those Amazon sales in particular. Last year, I saved a ton of money via Amazon, so I really recommend keeping an eye on their Lightning Deals because they are a great way to save some bucks this holiday season.

Target: Target has a few sales of interest this year for Black Friday, particularly when it comes to movies and video games. As for the latter category, look for Resident Evil: Biohazard, and Skyrim both priced at $15 each, Injustice 2 at $25, and The Evil Within 2 for $29.99. When it comes to movies, Target is offering Deadpool and Ghostbusters (2016) Blu-rays for $4 apiece, and for $9 apiece, you can pick up Logan, War for the Planet of the Apes, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Kong: Skull Island. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is also going to be available for $15, and for you TV enthusiasts, Target is offering a bunch of series for only $10 on DVD, including the latest seasons of The Walking Dead, Gotham, The Flash, Supernatural, and Arrow. Target opens for Black Friday on Thanksgiving at 6:00pm local time, then closes at 12:00am, and re-opens early on Friday morning at 6:00am once again.

Walmart: Many of Walmart’s Black Friday sales are available all day online on Thursday, and then begin in stores at 6:00pm on Thanksgiving night. Movie lovers can pick up Spider-Man: Homecoming and Wonder Woman on DVD for $5 and on Blu-ray for $7, and for those in the market to save some dough on video games, Walmart is offering The Evil Within 2 for $29, Injustice 2 for $19, Skyrim for $19, and then Mortal Kombat X, Just Cause 3, and Deadpool at $12 each. And if your wallet is feeling a little light this month, fear not: both Left 4 Dead 2 and Fallout: New Vegas are going to be on sale for only $9.

---------

Best Buy: Best Buy is also serving up a bunch of Black Friday deals this weekend, similar to many of its retail competitors. Initial sales include Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Wonder Woman and Spider-Man Homecoming all for $7.99 each on Blu-ray, and they also have a bunch of great tech deals, too, with their doors opening at 5:00pm on Thanksgiving. Friday Doorbuster deals begin at 6:00am and include both The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II for $24.99 apiece, Resident Evil: Biohazard, Injustice 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration for $19.99 apiece, The Last of Us: Remastered, BioShock: The Collection and DOOM for $14.99 apiece, and if you purchase Star Wars Battlefront II that day, you’ll get a free Darth Maul Funko figure.

---------

GameStop: For those of you in the market for some genre games this holiday season, GameStop has The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II for $25 apiece (on both Xbox One and PS4), and they open their doors on Thursday, November 23rd at 4:00pm local time. Their Black Friday ad also says that their deals are available online, but I’m not sure which sales specifically will be available there, so it’s worth looking via your computer before heading out of the house this weekend.

---------

Fright Rags: As usual, Fright Rags is doing another amazing Black Friday sale this year, where fans can pick up T-shirts for up to 50% off, box sets for half off regular price, mystery tees are making a return, and there so many other ways to save on their killer selection of items, too. The sale starts Friday at 12:01am EST, so set your clocks accordingly.

---------

Cavitycolors: Oh, man. Cavitycolors is doing the Dark Lord’s work during their Cyber Hell sale, which begins on Thursday at 5:00pm EST. For 24 hours, you can enjoy free shipping on your orders (use Promo Code CYBERHELL when checking out), and CC is bringing back a few amazing T-shirt and pin designs for the occasion, offering up huge discounts, and they’ve even unearthed some “Buy or Die” stock items that fans can get their hands on over the holiday weekend, as well as their special "Happy Horrordays" design shown below (and at the top of this post). If you have a bunch of horror fans on your shopping list this season, you definitely don’t want to miss out on Cavitycolors’ sale beginning on Thanksgiving night.

---------

Creepy Co.: Another great company fans need to check out over the Thanksgiving weekend is Creepy Co., as they’re offering steep discounts (up to 50% off) on their entire collection of products, including pins, patches, tees, sweatshirts, blankets, stickers, and so much more. Creepy Co.’s Monster Sale begins on Thursday at 12:00am CST and will run until Monday at 11:59pm CST.

---------

Sourpuss: I’ve been a longtime fan of Sourpuss Clothing, albeit the clothing label in their name is a bit misleading, since they have a variety of fun items from apparel to housewares to oddball gift wrap and ornaments, to even items for kids. This week they are offering a 25% discount on your entire order—you just need to enter the code BLACKEST (all caps) when checking out. This discount from Sourpuss is good through November 26th.

---------

Patti Lapel: I fell in love with the pins at Patti Lapel years ago, and their variety of accessories has only gotten even more awesome since then. I don’t have specifics on their Black Friday sale—all I know is that you should keep your eyes peeled on the Patti Lapel Instagram account for more details (which I’m guessing will be released by Thursday).

---------

Horrormerch Store: Those fiends at Horrormerch Store are up to it again this year, with their insane Black Friday sales that are primed to save you guys a ton of cash. Starting at 12:01 am EST, you can save 20-60% on everything, get free shipping on orders of $50 or more, get a $20 gift card with every $100 you spend, and you’ll even receive a Free Horror Mystery Mini with purchases, too. Horrormerch Store will be releasing their promo codes on Thursday morning, so be sure to keep an eye on their site to see how you can save money and stock up on holiday gifts.

---------

Entertainment Earth: Entertainment Earth has already been doing numerous kick-ass sales each and every day so far this week, and with each new day, their sales reset with no advance details on what you can expect. That being said, I’d suggest checking in daily on their site to see just how you can save some money while getting all your geek-tastic gifts ordered this holiday season.

---------

Mixtape Massacre: If you haven’t taken the leap on Mixtape Massacre yet, Black Friday weekend is the perfect time to finally bring this killer game home for the holidays. With the code BLACKFRIDAY, you can save 15% on the purchase of Mixtape Massacre, and there are other sale prices available on other goodies, as well as a special MM Black Friday shirt that’ll be for sale, too.
