It's not Halloween without the presence of certain things: Candy Corn, pumpkin candles, horror movie marathons on tv, and of course DinosaurDracula, the amazing Halloween icon who has been entertaining us with some spooky goodness for almost 20 years now and in those years, he's also offered us some great maildays with his iconic FunPacks. I don't normally purchase FunPacks or subscription boxes as much as I used to, but Matt's FunPacks are usually the lone exception. This months subscription box may be his best yet...
Thems the goods right there. So much Halloween goodness in one small package! Coming home to this after a long work day really helped turn my mood around. It's almost like that same feeling as when you were a kid and that mailaway toy finally arrived! I've ordered a few packs before, but this was one I couldn't turn down for multiple reasons:
POSTER AND STICKERS:
The stickers are pretty fantastic as well, which depict the mascot of the site as Freddy Krueger and in another, represent DinoDrac After Dark, which became Matt's "secret site" after midnight! I'm a huge sticker collector, so these will certainly be put to good use once I get a new laptop or even on my VCR which is literally more sticker than machine at this point.
THEY LIVE FILM CELL:
As great as the two are, this executioner kills me. He looks like something out of an EC Comics cover or something!
UTZ MINI CHEESE BALLS:
Always included in every monthly box is a mini snack, usually pertaining to the main theme of the season and these were a welcome addition. UTZ has always been a successful ingredient to any Halloween party or even inside a trick or treat bag. The little bag helps getting in the spirit of the season, too. It looks like it would be part of the opening of a Halloween special or a graphic in a tv spot for your local news station. Love these. And they're such a small bag, you can still share with friends...
Oh hey, Bumble...here for the party? Oh you brought a friend?
Well, it's getting awfully snug around here but thankfully there's enough for everyone!
Look at how happy everyone is! These FunPacks are a perfect party starter and a real crowd pleaser! But wait...one last piece!
A SEALED TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE VHS TAPE!
To be honest, this was the "big item" for me and I'm sure many others. If you don't watch at least 3 episodes of TFTDS during the season, you may as well start over because you've screwed up major. A surefire way to get in the Halloween mood any time of the year is with this show. Now, I'm a massive fan of Tales From The Crypt but it sometimes lacks that Halloween feel. This however has a constant fall mood attached to it. The practical f/x, the music, the scenery, the stories, everything.
DinosaurDracula and keep an eye when Matt opens up purchasing or subscription options!
Warning: You'll wanna hop on these quickly, they do sell out and after seeing these great items, you can definitely see why!
