The Classic Horror Playing Card Deck Kickstarter starts on Friday the 13th! The deck features 54 poker-sized cards with custom faces that bring Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, and other horror icons to life with lush illustrations and intricate design.

Classic Horror stories are what started so much of the horror genre as it is today. Each of the suits in the Classic Horror deck represent a different story in classic horror books and movies.
The Spade suit is represented by a Demon, a Succubus, and the Cultist who tries to conjure them. Hearts have Dracula, his beloved Mina, and his hunter, Van Helsing. The diamond suit has the characters Dr Frakenstein, his Monster, and his other creation, the Bride of Frankenstein. The clubs suit is represented by The mummy, the Sarcophagus and the archaeologist who is reminiscent of a love the mummy once had. The Jokers are 2 separate pieces of art representing light and dark.

The design is kind of nice, sure, but they used DriveThruRPG as their printer.  I've never seen the quality of their playing card work, but if it's what I suspect it is based on their low prices, they might not be worth buying.  Again, it's just a hunch - I'd be happy to be completely wrong on this.
