Adam Green Curating the Next Box of Dread



Adam Green

Hello, Dreadies! Some good news coming at you on the Box of Dread side of the fence. We know things have been rough the last few months with late boxes. What began with the hurricanes in August became a bit of a disaster of our own as the delays dominoed into the following months.

That being said, we are making a huge effort to get caught up in one move. The January and December boxes are being shipped together to give us time to get everything back on track. On top of that, the February boxes are being shipped on February 15th. That means most of you guys will get three boxes practically back to back.

And we’re even including Adam Green! Well, not physically. He’d cost too much to actually ship, and proper dismemberment would just lead to even more delays.

I’m honored to be curating this month’s Box of Dread,” says Green. “Not only is the timing great with the home video release of Victor Crowley on 2/6, but given that February can be a bummer of a month for so many with Valentine’s Day and all… I’m happy to be able to play a role in spreading some horror cheer.

So I know what you’re thinking… You’re as curious as Brad Pitt in Se7en – “What’s in the box? What’s in the box? WHAT’S IN THE BOX?” Well… we could tell you, but what fun would that be?!

Here’s what we can dish…

Our December box was going to have a “Twilight Zone” theme to ring in New Year’s, and January’s box was intended to have some Hatchet goodness in it to celebrate the home video release of the new Victor Crowley film. So in a way Adam is basically curating both months. We figured Adam is so busy right now that we should make the most of our time with him.

Shipping both boxes together allows us to draw a line in the sand with regard to the recent delays. It gives us enough breathing room to focus on planning ahead, instead of playing catch-up. We have never had problems like this until recently, and this will give us the chance to put this monster of a train back on the tracks.

February’s box is ahead of schedule, and we will be shipping earlier than the other boxes because we have something special lined up. Look for that announcement on January 25th.

We are also sending out an important survey for you guys to weigh in on. We will be following up on that next week with an update on our plans for moving forward in 2018 as well as a commitment to our subscribers. Be on the lookout for the survey going out this evening as well as the follow-up update being posted next week.

Want to get some prep on? The original “Twilight Zone” is currently streaming on Netflix, and don’t forget Victor Crowley is coming out on February 6th!

The ultimate goal here is to put us back on track and get both boxes out the door and into your hands at once. If you have any questions or concerns, always feel free to contact us at, and we’ll do whatever we can to make things all right in your horror-loving world.

This past weekend at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, CA betwixt a double screening of The Shape of Water and the classic The Creature from the Black Lagoon, the former’s director Guillermo del Toro (and star Doug Jones) sat down to discuss the latter’s influence on the film, Gill-man sex, “one sock movies,” his career in the genre, and more with moderator Jonah Ray, and we were there to film a portion of it.

Michael C. Hall Buried in Stephen King’s Pet Sematary



Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam



Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
