In an effort to both serve our readers and help support The A.V. Club, we are going to post daily links to deals and interesting items that we find over on Amazon. If you use these links to click through and buy something—not just the thing you clicked—on Amazon, we will see a portion of that income. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, but if you do, know that we appreciate it.

Now You See Me 2, Dirty Grandpa, Me Before You, Keanu, The Divergent Series: Allegiant, The Nice Guys, Criminal, and Marauders ($.99 to rent)

Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in The Nice Guys

Want to rent a movie this weekend but don’t want to drag your ass all the way down to the Redbox machine? Or, god forbid, your local video store? Amazon’s got you covered. It’s offering nine new releases for just $.99 a piece, and some of them, like The Nice Guys, are actually pretty good. Others, like Criminal, star Kevin Costner as a psychopath named “Jericho.” Either way, they’re just $.99. For that price, we’ll watch almost anything.

Nightmare On Elm Street shot glasses, set of two ($5.42, was $7.99)

You’re probably going to have a drink or two on Halloween. Why not have it from an appropriately spooky glass?

Zombie head glass decanter ($13.24, from $19.95)


If you want to pick up something spooky from which you can actually pour that liquor, there’s always this zombie head decanter, which holds 27 ounces of pure alcohol. It’s like Dan Aykroyd’s Crystal Skull vodka, but not related to Dan Aykroyd, and without the vodka.

Sharkk Bluetooth speaker ($54.99, was $149.95)


With over 3,500 reviews, this speaker is still drawing 4.5 stars, meaning it’s probably a pretty solid wireless option. With 18 hours of battery life and a built in microphone for hands free phone calls, it’s definitely something to consider, especially at this discount.

LED clip-on book light ($10.09, was $25.99)


We’re all going to go blind from looking at our computers and cell phones. Why not ease that slide back just a notch and use a goddamn book light when you can?

Six-piece set of MOTA truck toys ($19.14, from $29.99)


This six-piece truck set would be a perfect gift for any kid that’s into trucks. They’re durable, and when you’re talking trucks, that matters.

Lil Eggroll swaddling blanket ($9.75)


For just under $10, you can turn your newborn baby into an eggroll, a soft taco, or a little sushi roll. That’s adorable, and if you don’t have a kid, all your friends that do will thank you for this ever-so-thoughtful photo accessory.

Growler scrub brush ($9.33)


Face it: The inside of your growlers and water bottles are gross. Pony up for this high-tensile foam brush and get that crud out of there.


Frank’s Bride Mary Janes ($64.99, was $84.99)

If you’re not much for Halloween but still want to be festive, you can always pick up these platform Mary Janes, which are emblazoned with Frankenstein-like characters and will, at the very least, give you festive feet.
