OK, Bag Monster is a moronic name, but Monster has become a catch-all phrase for "Hey, this will help you do something" This section will help you find the bags you're looking for (like you're really looking for them). Leaving everything blank will retrieve a list of all bags, however that may cause the page to load slowly.

Biman Bangladesh

Approximate Vintage: 1990
Received From: Bruce Kelly
Print or Image Color: Black, Green, and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
The interesting corduroy textures and shapes are reminiscent of Anasazi petroglyphs. It's a pretty big bag considering the amount of food they don't have in Bangladesh.

Biman Bangladesh

Received From: Mari van Rijbroek
Identical to the other Biman bag EXCEPT the new barf bag company, "Sumi Printing Press & Packaging" felt that it was necessary to substitute the ampersand "&" for "and".

Biman Bangladesh

Received From: Paul Mundy
Print or Image Color: Green and Red
Background / Bag Color: Tan
Identical to the other Biman bags EXCEPT this one was manufactured by Modern Enterprise. For some reason,they keep changing manufacturers. Maybe Bangladesh is poor enough that they are able to keep cutting costs by having bag bidding wars.

Reasonably identical to the other Biman bags EXCEPT this one was manufactured by Star Lamination. For some reason,they keep changing manufacturers. Maybe Bangladesh is poor enough that they are able to keep cutting costs by having bag bidding wars.

Biman Bangladesh

Background / Bag Color: Green and Brown
Identical to the other Biman bags EXCEPT this one has no manufacturer mentioned on the back. Also, on the front, the phrase used is "AFTER USE CLIP IT AND HANDOVER TO CABIN CREW" instead of "AFTER USE CLIP IT & HANDOVER TO CABIN CREW" -- the word 'and' being used instead of the ampersand.

Biman Bangladesh

Once again, Biman Bangladesh changes to another manufacturer that provides equally shoddy work as the previous ones. This year's bag supplier is "M/S. GOLAM SABBIR TRADERS"

Biman cleans up its formerly busy bag to a a white background with green writing. All the text is in English, so I guess everyone from Bangladesh speaks it.

Binter

Approximate Vintage: 1998
Received From: Thorsten Methner
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White
Similar to other crappy Binter bag, except this one is manufactured by Docian, SL (where SL stands for Bill Griffith character Shelf Life?)

Binter Canarias

Approximate Vintage: 2002
Received From: Frank Mulliri
Print or Image Color: Green, Green, & Green
Background / Bag Color: White
The word Binter looks like it's made out of floor tiles. Functional and boring, like my wife.

Binter Canarias

Approximate Vintage: 2003
Received From: Sakis Triantafillou
Print or Image Color: Green, & Green
Background / Bag Color: White
In a bold move, Binter strips away all instructions and replaces them with two mouse pointers, transforming a heretofore boring bag into yet a slightly different boring bag.

Binter Canarias

Approximate Vintage: 2005
Received From: Ralf Gumnior
Print or Image Color: Green, & Green
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag is a superset of the stuff printed on the 2002 and 2003 bags. Binter Canarias is nothing if not complete.

Binter decides to remove the company name from the bag, devaluing it in my eyes at least.

Birmingham European Airways (BEA)

Received From: Paul Diamond
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
A very tall older bag (usually the word 'gentleman' appears after the words 'very tall older'). The gusset says, 'New ALKAFLEX', which sounds like a superhero.

Much like the other red BEA bag except this one if much more verbose, going so far as to call the Stewardess a Klingon.

So cutting edge, the letter A looks like the Greek lambda.

Blitzkrieg

Approximate Vintage: 2008
Received From: Robert Hauschild
Print or Image Color: Red Sticker
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag was distributed at the showing of Blitzkrieg at the 99 seat Pioneer Theater in New York City, that closed Friday, Nov. 7th, 2008. I don't think for one moment that distributing barf bags was any sort of desperate attempt to stave off closure, oh no no no.

Blood Circus

Approximate Vintage: 1985
Received From: Mary Neeley
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: Tan
This item is an Official Blood Circus Scream Bag featuring new THUNDERVISION™ that will shatter your seats! The film also featured 3D sound SANTOPHONICS™ (whatever the hell that is).

The coolest thing about this bag is the Free Diamond Ring Coupon which states, "Return this coupon along with your movie stub plus $1.00. NATURAL DIAMOND NOT COUNTERFEIT". To that I wonder wtf?

Blood Feast

Approximate Vintage: 1982
Received From: George Larson
Print or Image Color: Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Whereas other horror flick bags claim they are rated V for Violence, this movie is rated T for Terrifying. Odd distinction. Cool fanged goatee guy hovers over muscular woman in slinky dress. This bag comes with a Philadelphia mailing address although I couldn't possibly tell you why.

Mark Monastyrski, an expert in the movie barf bag genre elucidates, "Blood Feast was released in 1963 and is widely regarded as the first "Splatter Film." Like "Cannibal Ferox," "BF" was banned in the UK under the so-called "Video Nasties Act" of the early '80s. Movies Unlimited, the source of the PA address, is a fantastic film store that has just about everything in print. Check out their website at moviesunlimited.com; someone there might be able to tell you about the Blood Feast bag. [Bags might have been handed out at BF's original theatrical run, but I still need to read up on it.]"

Mark adds, "According to an interview in The Onion, barf bags were part of the promotions for the original 1963 release of "Blood Feast." The article mentions an original bag selling for $25 dollars.
