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.
The block comes with a $10 voucher to the Nerd Block eStore – these will allow you to get a bonus shirt, or Funko POP, for the cost of shipping. Free to the first reader that uses it!
It looks like they are no longer including the $10 ShirtPunch voucher – but the inventory is pretty much the same since Nerd Block runs ShirtPunch.
Quija Shirt – Value $15?
Nightmare on Elm St. Freddy Flask – Value $10?
The featured item of the month was a flask featuring Freddy’s classic sweater and slash marks.
While I’m not sure of the exact numbers of ounces that it holds – it seems like the typical size flask.
American Horror Story Crying Nun Pencil Holder – Value $10-15?
This one isn’t marked as exclusive, but I also haven’t had any luck finding it on the internet so I’m doing a ballpark value estimation.
This little porcelain mug/pencil holder features the crying nun made famous in season 2, Asylum.
Baphomet LED Candle – Value $10-15?
The next item is exclusive to the box. It’s not an homage to any franchise, it’s just an LED candle.
It’s not too bright of a light – but I don’t find many of these LED candles bright enough.
Here’s a look inside at the mini LED light.
Army of Darkness Mouse Pad – Value $5-10?
The final item (besides the monthly Rue Morgue) features Army of Darkness.
This is your typical mousepad, but you’ll have to use it in the way that would be untraditional for a mousepad – vertical – if you want to show off the movie poster in all its glory.
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 the cost of shipping to the US!
Verdict: Outside of the Freddy flask and the mousepad, the franchises featured this month were outside of my wheelhouse. But, you can’t win them all, and I’m sure there are subscribers where this hit the perfect notes. While this isn’t a hit for me, personally, it still easily covers the cost of the box – especially when you factor in Rue Morgue covering your shipping cost.
