Ever since I have received my previous Box of Dread, I've been counting down the days till my next box to arrive at my door. I was satisfied with the horror goodies and surprises that came in last month's box and decided to keep up my subscription. This month's box arrived just before Christmas Eve, it would seem Sandy Claws left an early present on my doorstep. I couldn't wait to see what dreadful things were lurking inside.
If you are unfamiliar with Box Of Dread, here's some quick details about the service:
- Monthly subscription box for horror lovers.
- Two plans are available: $20 for one month and $57 for three months.
- One lucky horror fan will be chosen each month for the 7th Box filled with more horror goodies than a regular Box of Dread.
- They don't ship internationally...yet.

December's Box Of Dread:
The first item that grabbed my attention right away was the Funko Nightmare Before Christmas Mystery Mini figure, very fitting for this month's box. In the previous box I had received a Funko Walking Dead Mystery Mini, so it was awesome to see Box of Dread put other horror related Funko figures included in the box. I just actually started collecting these Nightmare Before Christmas figures recently, it's become my new obsession. So I was thrilled to receive one. This series includes Jack Skellington, Oogie Boogie, Sally and other rememberable characters from the film.
Here's my collection so far:
I noticed the mystery mini I received felt heavier that the other boxes that I have purchased before. Could this be the rare Jack Skellington as Sandy Claws? Ah the suspense!
Sadly no, not this time but it was one I haven't received yet! I'm happy I got Sally, these figures are so cute!

The next item was also another Funko Mystery Mini. These minis are based on classic horror icons you know and love, like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, etc. This was another item I was thrilled about. I have been literally searching for these figures everywhere, but have had no luck finding them. I checked my local Barnes & Noble, Hot Topic, etc. I guess I could of bought them online, but finding them in stores is way more fun.

The third item was a bag of skulls. You can never have enough skulls! These mini skulls will be very useful for next Halloween. Perhaps they will be included in some of the goodie bags for trick or treaters.
The last item was a holiday treat, a candy cane!
Overall, this is my favorite Box of Dread so far. It seems Sandy Claws knew what I wanted this year with the Funko mystery figures. I loved the figures found in the box and hope to see more Funko items in future boxes. The mini skulls and candy cane were a nice addition as well. Definitely going to use those skulls for next Halloween. I was a tad jealous to find out that other Box of Dread subscribers received horror themed pillows from Horror Decor, though I'm very satisfied with the items I got in December's box. I will still continue being a subscriber to Box of Dread, I really enjoy this subscription box and the Halloween fix it gives me each month. And can't wait to see it grow and what new horror items they will include in the upcoming months. As I stated in my last review, I hope there were be more movie promo items or exclusive items you can't find anywhere else. Looking forward to what the Box of Dread has in store for 2014!
Also here's a photo of the horror items found in December's 7th Box, if your curious. Congrats to Box of Dread subscriber Lisa Canada!
