The Owlman has become something of an internet cult figure over the last couple of years, with his epic reign of terror on unsuspecting Scottish explorers going seriously viral. The character of the Owlman originally appeared in the indie horror film Lord of Tears back in 2013, directed by Lawrie Brewster. The film itself was well received by fans and critics alike, but the Owlman’s popularity has grown way beyond his indie roots into the realm of internet folklore. Like his earlier counterpart and some would say distant cousin, Slenderman, the Owlman has captured the imagination of the horror community, spawning new stories, fan theories, costumes and even tattoos!
Now, you can possess your very own Owlman in the form of a Limited Edition action figure being sold through Kickstarter. Limited to just 150 exclusive signed figures, the release will help fund the completion of the team’s next film The Unkindness of Ravens. This next venture from Lord of Tears director Lawrie Brewster and writer Sarah Daly promises new beaked horrors in the form of the plague-doctoresque Raven Warriors. You can pre-order the movie as well as the new 3-Disc Edition of Lord of Tears over on Kickstarter – but hurry – there’s just 4 days left in the campaign, so get ’em while they’re hot!
