Back when Box of Dread made its debut, I paid the $20 to have them mail me a box of horror goodies. When it finally came, I was disappointed to find that my money had been wasted.
Inside was a Funko Horror Mystery mini, which was the best part of the box, an HP Lovecraft mouse pad, a small The Walking Dead fish tank heads poster, five of the same exact Childs Play Good Guys battery stickers, a business card and a pen with no cover. Needless to say, I cancelled my monthly subscription.
Several months later, Nerd Block announced the availability of their new Horror Block, which costs about $30 a month. Thinking it had to be better than the Box of Dread had consistently been, I hopped on it.
The boxes ship from Canada, so it takes a while for them to arrive. The first one came in July, said to be guaranteed at my house by July 3 but didn’t show until nearly the 8th. This was excused, however, when I opened the box.
Inside was, again, a Funko Horror Mystery mini, a Freddy Krueger t-shirt, a The Walking Dead Funko Pop figure, a Rue Morgue magazine, soap that turns blood red when you wash and a package of horror icon stickers. Worth every penny.
The second box was said to arrive on July 31, which once again arrived around the 4th, included a The Lost Boys Frog Brothers t-shirt, a Sharknado Funko Pop, a Rue Morgue magazine, a zombie keychain, Alien movie pins and a The Nightmare Before Christmas figure.
Two months in a row they have exceeded my expectations and the value of the box for the price. It has been well worth the few extra days
wait for the packages to arrive.
