As we settle into the new year, eventually it dawns on us (or just me) that 2013 calendar shopping was never checked off the to-do list. Sure, all The Walking Dead calendars seem to be out of stock on every conceivable site, but luckily for horror fans, the selection is much better now than when we were younger.
Here are 15 diverse choices sure to entice all kinds of lovers of the macabre. No prices are listed because some are currently being marked down or varied prices can be found on Google if you like to search for better bargains.
Paranorman 2013 Wall Calendar (See Featured Photo) - Features scenes from this wonderfully spooky movie that is beloved by all ages. Comedy, grief, zombies, ghouls, bullies, adventure – this film has it all in spades. 12 month calendar.
Elvira Mistress of the Dark 2013 - Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the film, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, it features 13 months (Of course!) of full color photographs from the film.

Gorgeous & Gory Zombie Mermaid Calendar - Undead chicks with fins! It doesn't make sense to me, either, but roll with it. It's certainly a creative change from the average zombie pinup, and the illustrations are done well, so kudos to them!

Toxic Toons 2013 Wall Calendar - Artist Eric Pigors never fails to bring us the coolest, creepiest imagery, and his annual calendars and tee-shirts are always in high demand. I like to save the best for last.
Cheers to having a creepy cool calendar for scheduling all the horror conventions, movie screenings, exhibits and ghoulish madness throughout the year! Happy New Year!
