Subscription Box Box of Dread

Theme “The Horror Subscription Box”

Price $14 (1 Month) | $13 (3 Months)

Shipping $6

IMG_20150615_140638From 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 “Frankenstein”.

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

In addition to the Box of Dread a “Welcome Package” letter also arrive (just before the box did).

Sent separately from the box was an envelope with stickers and a note welcoming a new Acolyte (subscriber) to the Order of Dread. While it’s a simple gesture, it’s also a really nice touch.

ReAction is a line of action figures from Funko (maker of POP! Vinyls) that is 3.75″ throwbacks in a similar design to the older Star Wars figure. This particular series covers the Universal Monsters with the included figure in my box being Frankenstein.

This is definitely the marquee item of the box. It’s the 3rd issue in Dynamite Entertainment’s current Re-Animator series. While that by itself would’ve been cool, it gets even better! The issue is signed by writer Keith Davidsen and includes a certificate of authenticity from Dynamite that notes this issue is 1 of only 200 signed in silver.

IMG_20150615_141205I have to say i’m really impressed with the first Box of Dread I’ve received. Multiple exclusive items, a brand new action figure and a limited edition signed comic for only $20 shipped? Yup! They also managed to keep a variety of items while sticking to the month’s “Frankenstein” theme.

If you love all things horror, there’s a great chance you will also love Box of Dread.
