Horror Pack April 2018 Review

Hobo with a Shotgun (2011)

Hobo with a Shotgun (2011) – Retail Value $19.98 (found here for $13.39)

I had seen this movie years ago when it came out, but it was worth another view. Hobo with a Shotgun is a dark comedy horror movie starring Rutger Hauer as the title character that goes on a vigilante spree against corrupt, awful people. I prefer my movies with giggles and gore myself and this one certainly delivers. The title is completely self-explanatory but certainly worth a viewing or two!

4/20 Massacre aka 420 Massacre (2018) – Buy the DVD for $11.99

Too appropriate that this movie was included in the April box, eh? Do you like stoner films? Are you a fan of the slasher genre? Well, you came to the right place with this movie! The heroine is smart and tough, the plot is utterly ridiculous, but they killed off my favorite character; what a bummer—they won’t be in the sequel! Needless to say, I watched this with my dad and brother and we all got a good laugh! I give this three out of four pot leaves.

Dawn of the Dead (2004)—Retail Value $9.99

I saw this movie in the theaters when it came out! I love the original that this is a remake of (plus I am partial to it because my best friend’s mom plays a zombie nurse in it with my ex’s mom – how cool is that?) George A. Romero’s same-titled classic. The original put Pittsburgh on the map as the Zombie Capitol of the World and was a social commentary on how consumerism was devouring and destroying society. Unlike a lot of horror movies of its time as well, it features characters with depth, especially the strong female lead, Francine. The remake (or re-imagining) also features a tough, smart female lead in Ana (played by Sarah Polley).  The re-make goes more for shock value and gore and has a far faster pace than the original. Plus, it has Ty Burrell in a very un-Phil Dunphy role. Comparing the two films is like comparing apples and oranges, but I appreciate both for the classics that they are.

The Horseman (2008)—Retail Value $9.99

Another vigilante film in the mix; The Horseman details an Australian man as he travels the outback to avenge his daughter. Along the way, he leaves a trail of victims. I won’t give much else away, but this movie is a bit of an intense, heart-breaking bloodbath.

Verdict: April’s Horror Pack was a stellar mix of cult favorites and a few indie gems! The last few months, the selections for Horror Pack have been spot on. My favorite is The Dawn of the Dead remake, but the entire box this month was ace. The price makes it a KILLER value too! (See what I did there?)

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the May box if ordered by 5/15.

Value Breakdown: This box costs me $24.99 with free shipping which means that each of the movies would cost $6.25 a piece roughly. If I were to buy these movies individually, my calculations come up to $51.95 for three Blu-Rays and a DVD. That is $26.96 in savings which covers the cost of the subscription! That is an amazing deal!

  1. Oh man, this box is like our Netflix queue. My husband & I LOVE terrible horror, & 4/20 Massacre sounds amazing (maybe not Evil Bong amazing though). Gonna have to check it out!

    • Definitely worth a view for sure, Erin!

  2. I watched this version on the movie theater too😀!!! With my high school bff and we had so much fun, we were the only ones in the showing. I enjoy the original too, one of my cult favorites together with night of the living dead 1968 and day of the dead 1985😁.
    Btw, great review 🖒!!! Subscribing to horror pack for sure😎.

    • Ana, yes! I went with my bf at the time too! This is one of those few instances I enjoyed both the original and the remake. But I refuse to see the remake of Nightmare on Elm St. Robert Englund is the only Freddy Krueger and will always be!
      You should totally subscribe to this box, it is pretty excellent. Glad you enjoyed the review, Ana!
