Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - Gremlins shirt

Gremlins Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s shirt features Gremlins! This is a great shirt – pizza party after midnight!

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - The Omen vinyl

The Omen Vinyl – Value $10-15?

This is a Horror Block exclusive this month! While it’s cool for me to get a vinyl since I have a record player, I’m assuming most do not – maybe this is why there are so many items this month?

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - mini pop pack

Pocket POP 3-Pack – Value $17.15 on Amazon

This was my favorite item of the month! I was even more excited to find out that these Pocket POPs don’t come with the detachable keychain – so they’re immediately ready for display.

I love any POP with Freddy and Jason – so this is perfect.

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - Deathgasm

Deathgasm Blu-Ray – Value $20-25 on Amazon

I’m actually excited to watch this one after reading a bit about it. It’s pitched as a horror comedy, which I love (I immediately think of Dale & Tucker vs. Evil).

Here’s a bit about the plot:

High School is Hell! Metal-thrashing Brodie is an outcast in a sea of jocks and cheerleaders until he meets a kindred spirit in fellow metalhead Zakk. After starting their own band, Brodie and Zakk s resentment of the suburban wasteland leads them to a mysterious piece of sheet music said to grant Ultimate Power to whoever plays it. But the music also summons an ancient evil entity known as Aeloth The Blind One, who threatens to tear apart existence itself. Their classmates and family become inhabited by demonic forces, tearing out their own eyes and turning into psychotic murderers… and this is only the beginning! It s up to Brodie, Zakk and their group of friends to stop a force of pure evil from devouring all of mankind.

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - bluray inside

I subtracted a tiny bit from the value since it’s without a slipcase or any liner notes. This is more of the version you’d find in one of those giant bins of DVDs.

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - pin

Jason Pin – Value $5?

We get this awesome Jason pin this month. I’m not big on pins, but this is about as good as it gets for a Horror pin!

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - Penny Dreadful comic

Penny Dreadful #1 – Value $3.99

I haven’t watched this series or read the comics, but I did read this issue. It definitely seems like something I’d like, and I know people love the show as well. Too many things to watch!

Horror Block Subscription Box Review + Coupon May 2016 - rue morgue

Rue Morgue – Value $9.95

As always, we get the latest Rue Morgue. My brother loves these, so these get passed off.

Verdict: This month’s Horror Block was packed full – and it was one of their better deliveries! I’m loving the shirt, movie, and Pocket POPs – so that’s a value win right away! What’s interesting is that Nerd Block started the year pretty heavily on exclusive items (salt and pepper shakers, wine corks, pins, etc), but it seems that they have slowed down on this tactic. If they can keep delivering the awesome items like this month, I’ll be OK with that change.

What did you think of the May Horror Block?

  1. This was my first horror block and I loved everything, including the film which was hilarious. The Jason pin was great, and the shirt was incredible. I’m extremely pleased.

  2. Must.have.that.shirt.

  3. I’ve actually seen Deathgasm! … But I barely remember it. In fact, I didn’t remember it until I read the description. I think I remember finding it entertaining, though.

  4. I might have to cave and get this box. I highly recommend Penny Dreadful, it’s excellent. I actually think it’s one of the most criminally underrated shows on TV. It gets no press or attention but it really deserves it.

  5. I love that shirt!! Anyone swapping a medium? 😀

  6. How do u add a discount code? I want to get the June horror block but I can’t seem to find where u add the code that u posted for the 40%off a block order

    • I believe the 40% off deal only applies to Nerd Block Classic, sorry! And for all promo codes, they are applied at the last page of checkout. Hope that helps!

  7. I thought this was suppose to be the June box,this box is the reason I signed up this mo nth…I am going to be upset if I dont get these items in my box this month

    • This blovk is 100% the May block and the box you receive at the end of June for June will be differenthe and won’t include these items, sadly.

  8. I was stoked to get my Horror Block this month! I’m an on-and-off subscriber but recently renewed for a 6-month subscription. This was probably the highest valued box I’ve received from them. I love that they are starting to include Blurays. I haven’t seen Deathgasm yet but have been wanting to for awhile now. Great review!
