Here’s a subscription box that’s a bit different from the norm. The Horror Pack is a monthly horror movie subscription box that sends you 4 DVDs or 4 Blu Rays each month. And we’re not talking bargain bin movies, the folks at Horror Pack are real horror fan so they select their movies each month based on some very strict guidelines. First: would they want the movie in their own collection? Second: is it available on popular streaming services at the moment? And Finally: is it cheaper to get them in Horror Pack than it is to buy them on their own? …sounds like some pretty sound logic if you ask me! So what are we waiting for let’s check out the unboxing!
…ok or just skip the video altogether and just check out what I got!
The Awakening was the only Blu Ray in the bunch that I had never seen or heard of before. It’s set back in the 1920’s and revolves around a woman who has dedicated her life to debunking supernatural claims until one day… well obviously she finds a real one. I really enjoyed watching this movie, the 1920’s atmosphere is creepy enough as it is but they have added in some great scares at just the right moments to make you jump out of your seat. I can see why they picked this movie for the box.
Silent Hill Revelation
One of my all time favorite horror games in movie form. Silent Hill Revelation is the follow up to the original Silent Hill movie that effectively scared the crap out of me. I don’t know what it is but those nurses are the stuff of nightmares and they scare me more than any other creature in the Silent Hill universe. My kids have never seen this one so I cant wait to introduce them to the world of Silent Hill.
The Scream franchise redefined the modern horror movie. Scream 4 is the last movie in the series and from what I can tell there won’t be any others in the future (although I am no expert but that’s what Google has said). Scream 4 wasn’t the best movie in the series but I still liked it… there are enough scares in it to keep things interesting.
Shaun of the Dead Steelbook
Yessss! What can I say? Shaun of the Dead is one of the greatest horror/comedies of all time! Plus it’s the Blu Ray Steelbook! I’ve probably watched this movie a dozen times and yet I somehow don’t own it. (go figure lol) All I can say is: if you’ve never seen this movie… were you born under a rock??? Go see it!
…and that was the Horror Pack for December 2015. I really think this is a great service for horror movie lovers. I don’t have much of a movie collection so I highly doubt I will ever get something I already have. The DVDs run $20/month while the Blu Rays are $25/month… AND …the movies in each format don’t overlap so if you REALLY wanted to get a jump on your collection you could get both and get 8 completely different movies each month…. ya know… if it’s in your budget to do so lol.
