You'll get hints to which franchises and items will be in your box throughout the month - but overall, there isn't a theme.
Nerd Block now has booklets as well. Inside you'll find stories, interviews, and information about the items in your box.
The booklets seem to be the same across all of your blocks in terms of stories and interviews, though.
You'll also still be getting a $10 credit to their eStore. You'll be able to get a POP for just the cost of shipping in most cases! This one is free to the first reader to redeem it.
The Mummy Shirt - Value $15?
This month's exclusive shirt features a Mumy skull from the upcoming Mummy reboot. It's a callout to this part of the trailer:
I must've seen the original Mumy movie 10-20 times. It's somewhat of a cult classic, and is a true classic to my mom - so I'm skeptical of the remake.

Amity Islan Swim Club Pin - Value $5-10?
I am geeking out over this pin. This is the perfect type of subtle nod to a franchise that I like in shirts - so it also works well in this pin.
The Silence of the Lambs Beanie - Value $10-15?
The next item is a pretty basic beanie featuring the Death's Head Hawkmoth seen in the movie.
Overall, it's basic - but fans of the franchise can keep warm in this current blizzard while making "It puts the lotion in the basket" references.
Resident Evil Replica Badge - Value $10?
It comes with a 3 1/4 inch replica S.T.A.R.S. Police badge.
It's got some nice detail and will be good for cosplay or a costume.
it also uses magnets to attach instead of a pin - keeping your clothes undamaged. It's a strong magnet, too - it easy attached through a thick hoodie.
Poison Glass Mason Jar - Value $10?
They include this exclusive ominous mason jar drinking glass.
This is your typical mason jar - it's got great weight because of the thick glass and the decal is printed on - so I think it could be good to go through the dishwasher.
Jason Mask Air Freshener - Value $1-2?
You'll get an air freshener that shows of Camp Crystal Lake.
The scent is really potent and has a Pledge smell.
My Bloody Valentine Card - Value $3-5?
Just in time for Valentine's Day - you'll get a card to gift to that special someone.
Rue Morgue Phantasm Book - Value $14.95
Every once in a while, you'll get a special edition Rue Morgue book - this one has a look at the Phantasm franchise!
Verdict: This month was pretty jam-packed with items, and those items were all over the place with the horror genre. I'm really loving the pin - and overall there is value - but I'm wondering if this one featured too many different franchises for everyone to love? What do you think?
What do you think of the January 2017 Horror Block?
