Horror fans who were born after the year 2000 may find it hard to believe that the only way to discover what film was opening at your local theater on any given weekend was by perusing the entertainment section of your local newspaper. If you were lucky, you would have found a new horror film that was coming to your favorite cinema, and if you were really lucky, the listing would have been accompanied by an advertisement featuring lurid, sensational artwork promising (but not always delivering) an hour and a half worth of thrills and chills.
In the wake of the Nerd Block scandal, many horror fans were left without a monthly surprise in their mailbox along with the latest issue of the best horror magazine for the past twenty years in the form of Rue Morgue.
If you have been missing your Horror Block and a copy of the bi-monthly magazine, fear not! Rue Morgue has announced a new subscription box for horror fans called Rue Morgue’s “Coffin Box” (exclusively from Horror Pack).
The bi-monthly box will include the latest issue of Rue Morgue, a specially selected movie by Horror Pack, and other various items such as pins, toys, clothing, etc. The box is scheduled to debut in the spring of 2018. No orders are being taken at this time, but you can sign up on the magazine’s website for updates. read more
Have you been anxiously waiting by your mailbox for the latest Horror Block to arrive? Well, it is probably time to go back inside because after months of missed shipments, uncertainty, and delays, Nerd Block (the makers of Horror Block) have filed for bankruptcy.
Kotaku UK is reporting that the subscription box company filed for bankruptcy, stating that “As the company has filed for bankruptcy, and has massive debts to numerous stockists, those with subscriptions will not receive any further items, and should contact their bank about preventing any further charges.” read more
