If you’ve seen Rubén Galindo Jr.’s Don’t Panic, recently released on Vinegar Syndrome Blu-ray, you probably took note of the pajamas main character Michael wears in the film. Granted, it’s a pretty obscure outfit from a pretty obscure movie, but Vinegar Syndrome is all about celebrating obscurity and they’re doing precisely that with a replica set of those very pajamas!
Released today as part of their annual Valentine’s Day Weekend sale, which also includes a 4K Ultra HD release of 1977’s SexWorld and slashes the price of 150 classic erotica titles by 50%, the Don’t Panic Pajamas are selling for $25, with sizes ranging from XS to 2XL. The design was recreated by Lumary Santana, who hand drew the art from old VHS stills.
Vinegar Syndrome explains…
“Nothing says “I’m turning seventeen today and I’m ready to outrun a demonic evil!” quite like being a grown adult wearing full body dinosaur pajamas. And now, just like Michael in Rubén Galindo Jr.’s fan favorite 80s horror epic Don’t Panic, you can fight supernatural forces in your very own nearly screen accurate two-piece PJs with long sleeve shirt and pants.”
In Don’t Panic, Galindo Jr’s tribute to Nightmare on Elm Street, “It’s Michael’s 17th birthday and his friends have decided to surprise him with the ultimate birthday bash: breaking into his house and playing with a Ouija board. But what they think is just a harmless bit of fun quickly turns into a supernatural terror when they unwittingly summon a demonic presence named Virgil, who proceeds to possess someone close to Michael, forcing them to savagely kill anyone and everyone Michael cares about. All the while, Michael begins to have terrifying dreams which he slowly begins to realize might be visions of the carnage that only he can stop.”
