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.
Please Note: This arrived almost two months late (we received this right around mid-December).
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 DX Review – Cursed
October's "Cursed" theme features items from IT, Evil Dead 2, Edward Scissorhands, and more.
It comes with a fold-out information card that details the items in your box.
Dark Souls Pin - Value $5?
Each month starts with an enamel pin. The October box pays homage to the Dark Souls franchise.
IT Raglan T-Shirt - Value $20-25?
As a fan of Stephen King and IT, I was excited to see what Loot Crate had in store for the IT-specific item. That item is a Pennywise raglan shirt - and I'm definitely a fan of the print and shirt style.
Mummy Scarf - Value $10?
This could have been pretty good for a Halloween costume had it arrived on time. This scarf mimics that classic mummy wrap look - and it's pretty warm, so it does its job quite well.
Edward Scissorhands Figure - Value $20-25?
Like most boxes, my favorite item is the vinyl figure - and this is one I never thought I'd see - Edward Scissorhands.
It kind of captures the whole movie in one little figure - the sad look on his face and that classic stance with his scissor hands - and, of course, the animal shrubbery.
Evil Dead 2 Keychain - Value $15?
A very very close second place favorite of mine was this keycap/keychain combo featuring Evil Dead 2. It features Ash's two favorite weapons - the shotgun and the chainsaw, with your key sliding in as the chainsaw blade.
Verdict: I can't really recommend a lot of Loot Crate lines right now - because they're still having massive shipment issues for the past year now. This one arrived 2 months late and their Firefly line is multiple boxes behind. While some lines have seemed to have been getting better (the core crate comes to mind) - I'm still pretty worried about them adding new lines and what that might mean for the crates that are already having issues. When looking at just the items, I do like this month's box - specifically the keychain, shirt, and vinyl figure - so that part was a win after waiting 2 months.
