October is the one year anniversary of the HorrorPack subscription service and they are celebrating with style with giveaways and limited edition Blu-rays along with events, promotions, and the best horror for the Halloween season. For those unaware, HorrorPack is a subscription service where, for a minimal fee, horror fans can sign up to received a monthly box of DVD or Blu-Ray goodies, typically four titles to frighten, scare and amaze.
At this time, you can sign up for the October releases for $24.99 for the Blu-ray HorrorPack (w/ free shipping) for one month or $24.24 per month for 3 months or $22.74 per month for 12 months (which includes a surprise bonus!). For less than $7 a title, you can enjoy new horror films delivered right to your door. Yup, Amazeballs!
HorrorPack has been kind enough to forward a sample HorrorPack to the Doc’s door to share with you an example of what you might expect. The September pack included some incredible titles. The box opens revealing a white sealed package full of four exciting Blu-rays. Until you break the seal, what lies inside is a complete surprise.
Here’s what Doc’s box had to offer.
The first film is the 2-Disc Director’s Cut of SAW V, the Twisted Pictures / Lionsgate frightfest from 2009 directed by David Hacki. Just in time in anticipation for the relaunch of the franchise next year!
The second film is a Jeffrey Combs starring feature called MOTIVATIONAL GROWTH with the fun tag line “The Mold Knows Jack, The Mold Knows.” The 2013 film is directed by Don Thacker and features a depressed and reclusive 30-something (Adrian DiGiovanni) who finds himself taking advise from a nasty mold-like creature growing in his bathroom. Combs voices the Mold! Sounds like fun!
Speaking of Jeffery Combs, the third film is H.P. Lovecraft’s RE-ANIMATOR from Stuart Gordon, released on Blu-Ray by Image Entertainment. Packed with bonus features, the Blu-ray features the classic horror film from 1985, arguably “One of the Greatest Horror Movies Ever Made” (-Entertainment Weekly). This is an easy keeper. A classic to smile on every horror fan’s face.
The final film in this pack has the tag line “Some Wounds Never Heal.” The film is SCAR 3D. And, you guessed it, the disk is in 3D complete and it includes two 3D glasses (no 3D TV required). It also contains the 2D version. Angela Bettis stars in the 2007 slasher from director Jed Weintrob released by Phase 4 Films. The box art promised the film to be “fast-paced and very gory.” Sounds good to me!
For the good doctor, this set is not a bad selection. Two of the films I have never seen (Motivational Growth and Scar 3D) and I am interested in see both of those. I have Saw V in the 5 disk Saw 1-5 collector’s DVD set, but I do not have it in Blu-ray.`Re-Animator is one I already own and in Blu-ray, so that one will like by re-gifted. If I did not own this film, I certainly would want a copy. There is a thrill to opening up the box and a rush when a title appears that surprises or excites you to watch it right away. Rumor has it, the following HorrorBox contains Hansel & Gretel (2013), The Thing (2011), Gut (2012), and a Hellraiser / Hellraiser II double feature disk. C’mon, that’s fantastic.
