Leprechaun Pin – Value $5?

This month features a Leprechaun pin – which one the famous taglines from the movie. They definitely picked the tight month to send this!

Horror-Block-March-2017-0021

Monster Totem Pole Shirt – Value $15?

This goes down as one of my favorite shirts from Horror Block. The totem pole features Pinhead, Jason, Freddy, and Leatherface!

Ash vs. The Evil Dead Socks – Value $10-15?

I can’t find these exact socks online, so I’m ballparking the value based on similar items.

Horror-Block-March-2017-0023

If you read my reviews, you’ll know that I’m always ready for new socks in boxes – so I was excited to see these. Not only do they sport an awesome franchise and show – but they’re also high-quality socks!

Penny Dreadful Ceramic Travel Mug – Value $15-20?

This is more like it! I’m always receptive to coffee mugs and glasses, but I wasn’t blown away by the plastic travel mugs they’ve included in some recent blocks – this is much better.

This is definitely a high-quality travel mug. But, it’s also handwash only and not microwave safe. But – hopefully, they’re going in the right direction with kitchen items for future boxes – I like these.

Starry Eyes DVD – Value $14 on Amazon

If there was ever a box to always include movies in it – it’d be a Horror themed box – so I was happy to see yet another horror DVD this month.

Horror-Block-March-2017-0020

From Amazon:

Determined to make it as an actress in Hollywood, Sarah Walker spends her days working a dead-end job, enduring petty friendships and going on countless casting calls in hopes of catching her big break.

After a series of strange auditions, Sarah lands the leading role in a new film from a mysterious production company. But with this opportunity comes bizarre ramifications that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful… and altogether terrifying.

Vampirella #0 – Value FREE on Amazon

They include a new prologue issue that features a new direction for the Vampirella series.

Horror-Block-March-2017-0027

From Amazon:

Beginning a new and VERY different direction!  Vampirella was last spotted in 2016 doing what she does best—defending the world from threats both mystic and evil. She hasn’t been seen since.  Now, over a thousand years later, she’s poised to make her fateful return, but the world that awaits her is unlike anything she might expect—or want to defend! Written by acclaimed comics, novel and television writer Paul Cornell (This Damned Band, Doctor Who) and illustrated by the masterful Jimmy Broxton (Goldtiger, Knight & Squire), it’s the start of an adventure for Vampirella unlike any she’s had in her long and storied history. Don’t miss the train before it leaves the station!

Rue Morgue presents Shark Movie Mania – Value $9.95

The last item is always the latest issue of Rue Morgue or a special edition issue. March features the latter!

Horror-Block-March-2017-0030

This features information on all of your favorite shark horror flicks!

Verdict: This is a really strong Horror Block! I think they did a great job with the big hero items in the box – the shirt, socks, mug, and pin are all awesome this month – and definitely cover the cost of the box by themselves! I’m curious to see if they keep including movies each month – it seems like a logical item for a Horror box – so, we’ll see!

  1. Starry Eyes was really a great film, with an even better soundtrack.

  2. The Penny Dreadful mug is a little late considering the series ended.

  3. Was disappointed to see the Court of the Dead book (and $25 gift card) mentioned in the first spoiler for the March block wasn’t included. I know contents can change, but you would think they would only announce spoilers of things they KNOW will be in the box. I see a Court of the Dead item is now announced for the April box. Wonder if it’s the book or not. I still like the March box overall, but wish Nerd Block wouldn’t make big spoiler announcements without being 100% certain.

    • I’m with you! I only subscribed because I wanted that Court of the Dead book. I asked them about it in an email. They said basically, oh it didn’t work out for this box in time so next month. Huh? That’s the only reason I wanted this box!
      Don’t spoil it if you can’t deliver. I don’t want to sub again for April, because what if OOPS, it happens again?

      So very disappointed.

      • Did the person you e-mailed specifically say that the book would be in the April Horror Block? I got a response from someone in customer service (named Nathan), who said he was unable to divulge if the item would be included in the future or not, only that he would pass on my concerns to others…..I might try the April box since Court of the Dead is listed on the main Horror Block page, but if it isn’t there, I am mostly likely done with Nerd Block all together. 🙁

        • This is a copy and paste of what the support person (Richard) told me in an email: Thanks for contacting Nerd Block!

          We’re sorry for any confusion. The Court of the Dead Book has been pushed back to April’s Block due to inventory complications.

          We’re very sorry for any inconvenience. Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions or concerns.

  4. I love that shirt if anyone wants to swap it let me know!

    • I’ll swap it. How do I find you on the swap site?

  5. This was one of my favorite horror boxes so far! I looooooooved that mug!!! I

  6. wow, if I sign up now, do you know if I’ll get this box? Great one, Eric!
