There’s nothing we like better than snuggling up on the sofa under a blanket with a huge bucket of salty popcorn watching old school movies when the rain is pounding down outside! Our love of all the cult classics, has fed our insatiable desire to buy as many amazing movie tees as possible. Here is a little glimpse of some of the highlights.
Inspired of course by one of the best Jim Henson films of my childhood, this awesome The Dark Crystal design is a great way to remember the legendary 80’s fantasy flick that terrified and amazed in equal measures. One minute I’d be wide eyed in a world of beautiful fantasy and adventure and the next it would have me hiding behind my pillow from the Evil Skeksis, the bad guys of the film who looked like giant, skeletal crows who’d been dressed in rotting flesh. Imported especially from the US of A, not only do I love this because it pays homage to one of my childhood classics but also because it’s one of our rarer designs, only available in limited numbers so you’re unlikely to see anyone else walking down the street in the same tee as you. Always a bonus.
This Ghostbusters design is just so, so cool. You’ve got the ghost trap on the front and the Ecto-pack on the back so you’ll be ready to split just like a real ghostbuster.
The perfect tribute to the 1984 film and it’s eccentric New York City ghost-capturing heroes, I also love the fact that this tee was actually created by our in house design team so it’s exclusively available at TruffleShuffle.com. Who Ya Gonna Call?
In a nutshell, Labyrinth is my favourite film in the world. I must watch it at least once a month. Not only that but Ludo was always my favourite character, the big friendly beast who could call upon his friends “the rocks” to help him out in times of need and fight the Goblin kings Goblin army. An easy choice and a brilliant design which sums up the loveable Ludo perfectly – this is one of those tees which people always stop me in the street to appreciate too, always a good sign.
Personally Gremlins 2 was always my favourite of the classic movie franchise. It was bigger, badder and funnier and kind of evolved The Gremlins to the next level. From spider and bat Gremlins to the reincarnation of Frank Sinatra as a Gremlin singing New York New York. JUST AWESOME.
You don’t tend to see too many Gremlins T-Shirts around either so I was dead chuffed when I spotted these on the shelves of Truffle Towers and purchased mine instantly – it’s a bargain too at just £18.99. Fits and feels great too (as do all our tees TBH)
This cool tee is a great take on the batman costume design. Thanks to the nifty detachable cape, you can rock this top as a normal tee and when the bat signal is lit, simply reattach the cape and head out to fight crime (or use it as a subtle fancy dress costume if you prefer.)
Well that’s all for now folks, hope you enjoyed my very own movie T-Shirt hot picks!
Don’t forget though that this is just the teeniest taster of the huge range of amazing movie merch we now have available on the site (over 350 products and counting!)
As well as my top 5 movies, we’ve got T-Shirts, clothing, Accessories and Gifts inspired by tonnes of other classic cult movies from the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s as well as a few current favourites (Harry Potter T-Shirts anyone!)
Plump up those Cushions and get the popcorn popping fellow movie fans!

I got sent this picture on Facebook the other day as I was wasting away my Sunday with the hope of someone turning up at my door with a hot Roast dinner in hand to cure my hangover.
It made me laugh as it’s an awesome idea for a tattoo and in an absolutely perfect position but it got me thinking, just how far are my fellow tat fans prepared to go to show their love for their ultimate pop culture icons?
I didn’t have to look hard – appears there are a whole host of fellow nostalgia fans out there who will go pretty damn far in their quest to show their appreciation for all things old school. Here’s a few of my favourites.
This full sleeve is made up mostly of Nintendo characters with Megatron randomly chucked in (apparently he was there before the owner of said tattoo decided to go all out with a full sleeve.) Not being a Mario fan as a kid, I guess I always wanted Megatron to turn up at Bowsers castle and show Mario how you start a ruckus so this definitely floats my boat.
The awesomeness that is the Muppets band in tattoo form – the colours are awesome.
This guy must have totally crossed the streams to get this sick Leg tattoo inspired by the Ghostbusters movie. The detail is unreal.
This leg tattoo pays homage to one of my favourite 80’s movies, Labyrinth. I always thought I was a pretty major Labyrinth fan, now I just feel lame!
And it’s not just the boys getting in on the action..
Yes – this brave lady has just about the entire Alice in Wonderland story inked across the upper half of her body. Now that’s dedication!
It really does look like his skin has been torn off reveling his inner Superhero. A tat too far me thinks although maximum respect for having the balls to pay tribute to Spidey in such a dramatic way!
Let us know if this has got you emptying your bank account and booking in for a full body Spider-man costume tattoo, we’ll definitely want to hear about it.
