Weird Memorabilia: Christian Slater’s Arm

Film fans are a demographic who’ll easily go without sufficient sustenance to acquire the latest Anchor Bay re-release or a ceiling tile from the Sulaco. It’s safe to say that we’ll deny ourselves life’s essentials (shampoo, sausages, etc.) to acquire a piece of celluloid history. This goes farther than the usual purchasing of a must-have Blu-ray. Some of us will part with the kind of cash that could get our dental problems sorted once and for all.


What’s in the bag?

Christian Slater’s prop arm from¬†Heathers.

How much did it sell for?

Between $400 and $600.

Can I see it on film?

Yep. This isn’t one of those replica props that are impossible to spot in the original film. This particular arm appears at the end of Heathers during the climax between Slater and Winona Ryder.

How could this item be used in everyday life?

A prop arm of Christian Slater’s with one finger assuming the position? If your mind went into the gutter, you’re not alone, mine is down there too swimming around all those fag ends.

Where will it likely end up?

Next to the front door as a key holder. Or wedged in front of the curtains to ward off evil doers.

The prop was sold by iCollector.
