Loot Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon – Cursed – October 2018
Loot Crate is a monthly subscription box for geeks and gamers. Each month they include themed collectibles and shirts – they’ve moved towards a mostly exclusive model – so you can’t get most of these items/variants anywhere else. October’s theme was Cursed.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

October 2018 Loot Crate Review – Cursed
October’s “Cursed” theme features items from Attack on Titan, Gremlins, American Horror Story, and more!
The box itself has a few pop-out masks for some extra unboxing fun.
Loot Crate has switched to a ‘Loot Wear’-style information card – which I’m liking a lot more than the typical info card.
Each panel reveals more information about each item in the box.
Quija Pin – Value $5?
I thought this was a great pin design for the October box! it mimics the classic Quija board cursor.
Each month comes with digital comics – this is actually one of my favorite parts – October brings us Volume #1 of Army of Darkness vs. ReAnimator – I love that we’re getting a 123-page volume!!
Attack on Titan Shirt – Value $15?
This month’s shirt features Attack on Titan – a now-classic Anime – honestly, I was a bit surprised to see it featured this month as it feels like a bit of a crossover from the Loot Anime crate. Still, it’s a cool design for fans of Attack on Titan.
SuperEmoScenes Evil Dead 2 Diorama – Value $20+?
Loot Crate continues its ‘Artist Series’ with a fun take on a classic franchise – Evil Dead.
The “Artist Series” takes popular designers’ work and brings it to life with a 3D build!
It’ll arrive in a few pieces to click together.
This is easily my favorite one, yet! I’ve never been a big fan of the SuperEmoScenesstyle – but I’m kind of liking this one.
Gremlins Socks – Value $10-12?
As someone who grew up with Gizmo, these socks were definitely speaking to me (and to Marne, who quickly called dibs on a pair!). Subscribers would either get the cute and lovable Gizmo or one of his more-destructive Mogwai companions.
The socks are a 98/2 polyester/cotton blend. They’re thinner, like a dress sock, and good for Fall and Spring.
American Horror Story Keychain – Value $10?
The final item pays homage to American Horror Story’s “Hotel” season. It’s a great idea for a keychain – but I tapped out of AHS midway through the Circus season, so I actually never watched this one!
Verdict: I really enjoyed the items from the franchises that I’m nostalgic and fond of – the socks, pin, and little figure were all favorites for me this month. The shirt and keychain were both good designs, but just not for me, personally – so I’m curious to hear what your thoughts were!
