Creepy Crate “Incoming Nightmares” Review

Creepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - Instruction Card Top

This box’s theme is items that will help you deal with incoming nightmares.

Creepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - I’m Here For The Cold Case Lunch Sack TopCreepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - I’m Here For The Cold Case Lunch Sack Opened Top

“I’m Here For The Cold Case” Lunch Sack — Listed Value $20

I am all about a nice, ice cold beverage, especially a can of seltzer. This lunch sack is insulated and can hold your lunch, or in my case, a couple cans of delicious fizz for on the go. Not only can you keep your snacks and drinks cold in this sack, but you can also advertise your love of true crime. If that isn’t a win/win, I don’t know what is to be honest!

Creepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - Alien Keychain TopCreepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - Alien Keychain Closer Top

Alien Keychain — Listed Value $10

If you are a huge fan of the Alien films, you will love this keychain! I personally am more of a fan of the Alien mock-up from Space Balls, but that doesn’t make me appreciate this piece any less! This sturdy, burnished brass-like key ring’s design is incredibly detailed and articulated. I was surprised it was $10 due to the quality and detail—it is that good! This will be a great addition to anyone’s spooky keychain collection!

“Pale Man Protection” Phone Wallet — Listed Value $15

Guys, you are going to be stunned, but I have never seen Pan’s Labyrinth. I know, I have heard it is amazing, but I still have yet to watch the film! If you are a fan of the movie, this is a piece you will love! This is listed as a phone wallet, but I don’t see any stickers to attach this to one’s phone like some I have seen. However, this would be great to hold key cards, ID, and a bank card for a person on the go that uses a smaller bag or just their pockets. It is rather slim and can hold maybe five cards at the most. The material is made of a plastic-like faux leather and has a ribbon attached that can be linked to a lanyard or keychain.

Creepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - The Losers Club Pin FrontCreepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - The Losers Club Pin Back

The Losers Club Pin — Listed Value $8

I grew up reading Stephen King’s books and obsessing over the movie adaptations. I loved the original IT mini-series and saw Part 1 of the remake in the theaters! How can you not root for those sweetheart misfits in the Losers Club going against one of the ultimate evils, Pennywise the Clown? I can’t wait to wear this enamel pin—it will be wonderful to wear when I see Part 2! The pin is about an inch and a half in diameter—fairly nice size! This enamel pin will tell everyone you too are a proud member of The Losers Club. Wear it on your lapel or bag proudly, fellow losers!

Creepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - Skull Bottle Opener Top

Skull Bottle Opener — Listed Value $10

Here’s a nice reminder for your guests: I am spooky and I know it! This bottle opener is not only creepy, but actually incredibly well made. I could probably use it as a self- defense weapon on the go! The bottle opener is solid and on the heavy side, but effectively opens all those Halloween pumpkin beers with ease. Get your BOOze on (or in my case, some bottles of refreshing Topo Chico!).

Creepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - Hex Hollow Documentary DVD FontCreepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - Hex Hollow Documentary DVD Back

Hex Hollow Documentary DVD — Retail Value $12.99

In 1928 in Stewartson, PA, outside of Lancaster, the heinous murder of Nelson Rehmeyer occurred. This documentary investigates the murder, which was motivated by the notion that Rehmeyer hexed some of his neighbors. The crime made national headlines exposing the old tradition of Powwow, which some consider a form of witchcraft. This documentary was absolutely fascinating and eerie in the best way. I strongly recommend it!

Creepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - The Toll by Cherie Priest FrontCreepy Crate Incoming Nightmares August 2019 - The Toll by Cherie Priest Back

The Toll by Cherie Priest — Retail Value $16.99 (found here for $12.69)

This Southern Gothic novel is about a newlywed couple, Titus and Melanie, that is Honeymooning by the Okefenokee Swamp. While feuding on their drive, they find themselves on a strange one-lane bridge that is not mentioned in the GPS. Titus goes over the bridge and awakens to find himself out of his car… without his wife. This is the beginning of a slow-moving, yet creepy tale. I refuse to give spoilers, but would recommend this book for a spooky read.

Verdict: We are getting close to fall, but Creepy Crate delivers chills whether it is eighty five or fifty degrees outside! This month’s box had some macabre goodies, but I wasn’t as eager about these selections as the summer box I reviewed. My favorite items this month were the Losers Club pin, skull bottle opener, and the Hex Hollow: Witchcraft and Murder in Pennsylvania documentary DVD. I also enjoyed the Cold Case lunch sack because I will get a ton of use from it carrying my seltzer waters around. I truly feel that for the price of $39.99, you get a killer deal! The items in this box retail up to $91.99, so you can’t beat that with a stick!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but orders for October/November boxes are now open!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $39.99 + free shipping, which means that each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $5.71.

  1. Your phone slips in the wallet and the you pull on the ribbon to get it out.

    This is one of my favorite subscription boxes. Always great stuff and a book.

  2. Just a fangirl moment – I LOVE Cherie Priest, and her books are awesome, with really great characters and beautiful world building. Her Lizzie Borden book is phenomenal as well, but if you’re not super into spooky, the Clockwork Century books are SO GOOD.

    Plus, if you follow her on social media, she’s always posting her adorable pets. Win-win!

    Ok, squeee aside this is a neat box. I may get a sub for my SIL, this is all right up her alley.

  3. It looks to me like that white part on the back of the phone thing should peel up and be a sticker? No clue if that’s accurate or not – but if it doesn’t the item seems kind of worthless to me.

    I think this sub has done a better job of defining their purpose with their last few boxes. I don’t know that the price point is worth it to me, but I can see this being a unique gift.

    • If the price was cheaper I’d be ALL over this. But for what it is 40 dollars is a bit much . But will definitely keep watching this one!!
