This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

Box of Goth “is an alternative subscription box service that delivers a mix of dark and delightful, gothic and horror-inspired goodies to your door every month! Based in the UK, but shipping is available worldwide, Box of Goth is for ladies with a love for the dark side. (Though we occasionally chuck in some unisex themed boxes!)”

The big showstopper for Box of Goth is their fantastic coffin boxes – they’re actually handmade by the company! I absolutely love displaying these boxes, almost as much as the items. They’ve been great for both makeup and art supply storage so far.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Box of Goth “Michael Myers” Unisex Box Review

Inside is a card detailing all the goodies found within; this is really useful just in case the visual references aren’t immediately recognized! Something super-important to note this time around, is that this box was specifically created to be unisex, as was mentioned earlier in the description.

    Pumpkin Enamel Pin

    Enamel pins are so much fun, and I’ve come to love decorating with them! I’m excited to find a special spot for this little guy – he’ll definitely pop with that bright orange color.

      Michael Myers Lego Figurine

      The man of the hour appears here in Lego form, looking extra-creepy! I’m tempted to add this piece to my Halloween decorations, but I actually think it’d be nicer to display it on a bookshelf, right next to all my husband’s horror movies. Look at how tiny that little knife is!

      The Devil’s Eyes Fridge Magnet

      One of the main things I really liked about the box this month is that even though the theme is centered on one specific character, I think the depictions and visuals have a really nice variety. This magnet is a really good example of a powerful but not overused quote from the film, and the black and white visual theme is a good contrast to the other items.

        Halloween Beanie

        This is my favorite item in the box! I love the design and how Michael’s face is given the illusion of being in shadow, plus it’s paired with an iconic font for the name of the film itself. The hat feels sturdy and well-made, and the fact that it’s embroidered really adds extra value in my eyes. I have a feeling my husband and I are going to be fighting over who gets to wear this soft beanie a lot!

          Look Behind You Pocket Mirror

          Form and function collide in this clever item – nothing like carrying a mirror around to make sure nothing’s creeping up on you! I personally think hand mirrors are super-useful even when not being stalked by Michael; I’ll probably put this in my travel kit to have on-hand when I’m on the go!

            Michael Myers Face Necklace

            I was really hoping we’d see a piece of jewelry in here this month! The black and white motif will go with a whole bunch of outfits, though when styling this I’ll definitely make the necklace the star. I think this would look amazing with a skull dress or sweater, but I think it also would be fun to pair it with a black jumpsuit and white ankle boots, just to make the image really pop.

            Halloween Pumpkin Embroidery Patch

            This piece brings us over to Halloween II, with its imposing, pumpkin-y poster image! Patches are so much fun to jazz up clothing pieces – normally a jean jacket comes to mind, but for this, I might have to find a black vest to truly do it justice.

            Halloween Movie Sticker

            This movie really has one of the greatest taglines of all time – “The night he came home!” I’m really excited to give this sticker a place of honor somewhere nice in my home – I have a feeling it’ll be displayed year-round, and not just in October.

            Theme Pin Badge

            This button looks to be a take on the image from Halloween II as well. Buttons are a nice durable option to add flair to accessories – I think this one would be quite at home on a backpack or shoulder bag.

            Verdict: Box of Goth really brought Michael Myers to life with these clever items! I really liked that it was a unisex offering so that everyone could enjoy the pieces, and I loved the variety of both images and items that were inside. The hat was definitely a highlight for me, as was that awesome necklace, and the smaller items are going to be perfect to affix to my accessories, both personal and for the home, to enjoy all throughout the year.

            To Wrap Up:

            1. I got this box and love everything!! The necklace is my favorite with the coming in second however I passed it on to my son who is also a Michael Myers fan.

            2. Fun box!

            3. Over $45? Yeah, no.

              • I completely agree

            4. The box looks great. I’ve already forwarded the info to a horror fan who sets up full sized Michael, Jason and Freddy every year.

            5. This box looks like one for our home! Thanks for the review and bringing it to my attention.
