Horror Block doesn’t typically have themes, but you’ll know 2-3 franchises in the box when the subscription period opens up.

Each month will come with a card that details every item in the box.

Each month comes with $10 vouchers to both ShirtPunch and the brand new Nerd Block eStore. They guarantee the ShirtPunch voucher but not the eStore – so I’m not sure it will always be the case that you receive both.

Halloween T-Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Michael Myers. While I’ve never been the biggest fan of the Halloween franchise, I do really like the design of the shirt this month! It has that high school football team logo vibe going for it.

The Walking Dead Journal – Value $13 on Amazon

They sent out a journal that features The Walking Dead – I got the Rick Grimes version. From the card, it looks like you could have received a Michonne or Walker version as well.

This is a hardcover journal with a faux leather cover. It also has a hidden pocket on the back cover flap.

The paper is standard, but overall I think it’s a really nice item!

Dexter Syringe Pen – Value $5-10?

Dexter makes an appearance in this month’s box. This is a liquid-filled syringe pen wit ha Dexter logo, nothing too special.

Seeing this brought back some great Dexter memories!

Doug Bradley Autograph – Value ?

This month had a special autograph from the actor who played your favorite Cenobite – Doug Bradley!

horror-block-october-2016-0009

Pinhead and his Cenobite crew are some of my favorite horror icons – Hellraiser is one of the very few horror movies that I’ll stop and watch if I find it on tv.

Quija Money Clip – $15?

The final exclusive item is a money clip shaped like the Quija indicator.

horror-block-october-2016-0023

I have lots of childhood memories with this as well – they probably all go along with light as a feather, stiff as a board.

horror-block-october-2016-0028

Demonic Toys DVD – Value $6.50 on Amazon

The final item is a DVD featuring the B-movie Demonic Toys.

horror-block-october-2016-0029

This actually gets pretty good reviews on Amazon! Toys of any kind are frightening in all horror movies, so I can see why this would work. I can’t erase the Poltergeist scene with the clown doll from my memory – so I’m not sure if I’m looking to add more!

horror-block-october-2016-0024

Rue Morgue – $9.95

As always, they include an issue of Rue Morgue. If you’re a fan or Rue Morgue, then you really win out on this subscription because it covers a ton of value!

Verdict: There wasn’t a big hero item for me this month, which left me feeling like this month was average. But, I do like a lot of the items, so the value is there for me, personally. I’m really kind of torn this month – no big wow moments, but a lot of items that were usable and nice.

  1. The Dexter Pen and the Ouija money clip were promo giveaway items I picked up at conventions. They literally have no value. The movie is awful. And the missing flask was a deal breaker. I cancelled my subscription and had to argue with them to get a refund, which they grudgingly gave me. My first attempt with customer service they told me to buy another box to get my flask. Unacceptable. I will never buy from this company again.

  2. I liked the box overall. The journal, movie, shirt, and autograph are good but maybe I expected a bit more for the Halloween box like a double item or more valued item. The magazine is always good. I have subscribed for almost a year and this is becoming the norm. We were supposed to get a Freddy Flask but were emailed about shipping issues with the item. My biggest concern about this block is the late arrival. I received my box in November.

  3. wow this box is terrible the franchises were great but what a let down..a dexter syringe pen really?

  4. This box looks so awesome. I hope they do a completely dexter box. I want to order but the shipping is so much. I hope they do a black friday special!!!

  5. I was super bummed not to receive the Freddy flask, that’s literally the only reason why I ordered this box. I won’t be getting the December box because CS was super rude. I was also really hoping for a cooler dexter item because I love dexter. I already have syringe pens and I thought it was kind of lame.

  6. Oh my, I think I need that Dexter pen.

    • I’ve seen them at Party City and Spirit Halloween stores.

  7. Pretty bummed about not receiving the Freddy Flask that was the big ticket item this month as I don’t feel like a Walking Dead journal was a good replacement for such a cool & exclusive item having to be replaced. I know it’s not their fault but hey, ship it when you do have it, we paid for it with the October box right? I feel bad for people who only got 1 box knowing about the spoiler and then they didn’t get it. Well I guess I’m in the same boat as my 3mos sub is up and I won’t be getting the Dec box they promised it will be in. Disappointing for sure.
