The Horror Pack is a monthly horror movie subscription box. Each month you get a hand picked selection of either 4 DVD ($20/month) or 4 Blu Ray ($25/month) of some of the best horror movies around. Right now, for October, the Horror Pack is celebrating their 1 year anniversary!! …and for the month of October, they are featuring a very special Limited Edition horror movie in this month’s box!! To help get the word out, they sent me the August 2016 DVD box to review for you so you can get an idea of what the Horror Pack is all about. So sit back, relax, check out my unboxing video, then I’ll meet you below with the photos…
…alright so let’s get a closer look at those movies…
Devil May Call
I’ve never seen Devil May Call but it sounds like a great thriller. It’s about a blind girl who works a suicide hotline. One of her regular callers gets a bit obsessive and well… I imagine pays her a visit… the movie itself didn’t get very good reviews online but I will have to see it for myself to make a decision on that.
Tremors is just a great classic movie full of cheesy lines and mild scares. The plot is pretty straight forward: monster worm creatures that live underground attack the residence of a small town who must learn to fight back. It’s like every old school horror film repackaged in a 90s setting. I remember seeing it when it first cam,e out but haven’t watched it in a number of years so I’m anxious to see it again.
Orlok the Vampire
I find this one very interesting. from what I understand this is the original Nosferatu vampire movie from the 1920s remastered and put into cheesy red-and-blue style 3d. I’ve never seen the original so I am anxious to check this one out as it was probably the first horror movie ever made.
Thirst is an Asian horror movie about a priest who gets a transfusion of vampire blood and thus changes him into one himself. The movie was filmed in Korean but it appears to have an English dub so that I don’t have to read the subtitles. I’ve watched the trailer for it and it seems like a really good movie that will be perfect for watching late nights in the dark.
…and that was the Horror Pack DVD box for August 2016. Overall I thought it was a great month… I love Tremors and I’m really anxious to check out Orlok the Vampire in cheesy 3d lol. Again, the DVD subscription runs $20/month while the Blu Ray subscription is $25/month… which when given the choice, the Blue Ray is the obvious way to go for the extra 5 bucks!
