IMG_20150822_151955From the folks at horror news site Dread Central is their horror-themed subscription box, Box of Dread. Box of Dread is a lower-priced box with two different options. You can choose either $14 for 1 month or a 3 month plan for $13 a month and the shipping is $6. Every month they choose a “7th Box” at random worth over $200 in horror items. Each month has a general theme with this one being “Sinister 2 and Nightmare on Elm Street”.

Box of Dread arrived in a flat but wide plain-brown box, similar in size to a hardcover comic book omnibus.

This month’s box includes a signed item again! This time it’s the Bluray cover of the Never Sleep Again documentary and it’s signed by it’s editor and director Andrew Kasch.

The Nightmare continues with the Funko ReAction 3.75″ Freddy figure who comes with a removable hat.

The final Nightmare on Elm Street item is a large light up window poster featuring Freddy himself. I’ve never seen a light up poster before but it’s a almost plastic-like material that uses room light to be seen from the outside.

The other half of this month’s box is from the new sequel, Sinister 2. The first Sinister 2 item is a mini-movie poster.

A glow in the dark Sinister 2 wrist band.


IMG_20150823_173904Sinister 2 Window Lenticular

The third Sinister 2 item is pretty unique. It’s a large lenticular that could adhere to a window or mirror and when you look from a certain angle the bloody face is shown.






IMG_20150823_174337It was a pretty interesting month with an even 50/50 split between Nightmare on Elm Street and Sinister 2. I’m not a big fan of the Sinister series but the Nightmare items were fantastic. I’m still not exactly sure how they can include all of this for only $20 shipped and not lose money.

If you love classic or modern horror, you’ll love Box of Dread.
