Crowley Shirt – Value $10?

I have to admit that I was really disappointed to not receive the 28 Days Later shirt that is featured on the card – instead, I received a Supernatural shirt, featuring Crowley. I know Supernatural is really popular, so most might be happy with this exchange, but I’m not a fan of the show and I am a fan of 28 Days Later – so it was a miss for me.

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon April 2016 - Hellraiser POP

Pinhead POP – Value $12.48 on Amazon

YES! This makes up for the shirt, though. I love Hellraiser, and I’ve put off buying this POP for so long just knowing, one day, that I’d probably get it in a box – and 3 years later – here it is.

I love that he has the puzzle box in his hand!

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon April 2016 - blu ray and salt and pepper shakers

The Editor Blu-Ray – Value $15-20?

I could only find the 2-pack for sale, so I did some guesstimating on the value. This actually gets decent reviews online, for the right viewer. It’s supposed to be a satirical take on Italian horror films. I’m excited to see a Blu-Ray in the box, but I wonder if they’d ever send a more mainstream horror film?

Gravestone Salt & Pepper Shakers – Value $10-15?

This is an exclusive this month – it’s a set of skull and gravestone salt and pepper shakers.

Here’s a closer look at them. They’re a nice set, and could be fun for any Halloween party.

Cthulu Patch – Value $3-5?

The last exclusive item this month is a Cthulu patch. Neither the item or character are interests of mine, so it was a bit of a miss for me, personally.

Rue Morgue #166 – Value $9.95

As always – the latest issue of Rue Morgue is included to browse. Phantasm! Awesome!

Verdict: This was a decent month for Horror Block. I was a big fan of the POP, but it was the only item I was genuinely excited to unbox. I am curious about the movie, so it could up the value of this box for me if I turn out to like it. Luckily, I have no shortage of people to gift Horror Block items. They had been moving toward a more exclusive model, with cool exclusives, but I was a bit let down to see a patch as an exclusive this month.

What did you think of the April Horror Block?

  1. I just got May’s box in the mail.. You’re in for a good one. I’m curious as to what you’ll think of it.

  2. I loved this block! I don’t see why you got a different shirt though- the card specifically lists the 28 Days Later shirt. While I like the movie, I love that Crowley shirt and would rather have gotten it. Everything else was a total hit, I loved adding Pinhead to my shelf!

  3. I liked this block a lot. I am a big fan of horror movies so appreciate a movie in the box. I love the Pinhead Pop – I too waited for it. The magazine is always good and lastly I did get the 28 Days later shirt — Love it!!! The patch and salt and pepper shakers are just kind of a miss for me. I was disappointed with the last three boxes. This was a very good one overall!!

  4. The Editor released by Shout Factory only comes as blu-ray /dvd combo. If you are into Italian horror it is pretty entertaining.

    • I think they actually opened it and removed the DVD disc from the case. Very odd! There are details about the DVD version on the back, but no DVD disc inside.

      • Mine had a DVD inside. I was actually happy it wasn’t more “mainstream” – as I hadn’t heard of this one nor seen it, so it was nice to have something completely new to watch!
