30 years ago, Joe Dante introduced audiences to a new type of horror—the banality of living in the suburbs—with his darkly comedic romp The ‘Burbs, which features a treasure trove of talent including Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, Rick Ducommun, Wendy Schaal, Henry Gibson, Courtney Gains, Brother Theodore, and Corey Feldman (who you can always count on to call the pizza dude), as well as an endlessly quotable array of quips that still hold up to this day.

To celebrate its recent anniversary, the folks over at Patti Lapel have released three new pins this week celebrating The ‘Burbs, featuring the Klopeks' house as well as both Hans Klopek and the demented doctor, Werner Klopek. Even if you don’t keep a horse in your basement, this trio of ‘Burbs pins are a must-have for any fan out there who wants to show off their love for Dante’s cult classic comedy in pin form.

For more information, be sure to head over to Patti Lapel’s site for all the details!
