October Horror Block

To say that I was happier with October’s Horror Block than I was with September’s is probably the understatement of the year. I gave the “Eddie” mask to a coworker who is a big Iron Maiden fan; she was over the moon about it. I’m still washing the shirts to get the latex smell out of them.

So let’s dive into October’s box, shall we?

The horror...the horror...

Looks pretty good. Let’s dig a little deeper.

November’s issue of Fangoria with an interview with Wes Craven, a Build Your Own Zombie kit, and a box of Cereal Killers Sticker Cards. I’m excited to read the magazine; I don’t think I’ve ever read Fangoria before (cue the gasps). I’m not sure if I’m going to break out the zombie kit. It’s just two tubs of not-quite-Play-Doh and unless I take it to work, I have nowhere in the house to display my masterpiece where a 2 year old won’t grab it.

These kind of remind me of the Garbage Pail Kids stickers that were popular when I was a kid. Of course back then my mom wouldn’t let me have any Garbage Pail Kids stickers, so I had to live vicariously through my friends.

Opening the two sticker packs inside confirmed my thoughts.

The cards have neat stuff on the back along with a checklist to make sure you collect them all. I’d be likely to seek more of these out because they are pretty clever.

Pretty sweet Friday the 13th shirt. My very first!

Blu-ray? Really?

Blu-ray? Really?

I was really excited to see a movie in this month’s box until I saw it was in Blu-ray format. I don’t have a blu-ray player, nor do I plan on getting one for one movie. This kind of annoys me a bit. While it’s awesome to get a surprise box every month, it’s not awesome to get something I can’t use that I paid for. The mask was one thing–I could have kept it if I wanted, even if I didn’t know who Eddie was. I wish there had been an option when I signed up to choose either DVD or Blu-ray for my movie choice. But I’m giving this one away to @GraveyardSister who I know will enjoy it.

I beg to differ, ReAction Figures.
