For the first time two month’s from Box of Dread were combined into a gigantic single box and it was quite impressive. For December’s theme of The Twilight Zone there was a graphic novel and TWO action figures. For January’s theme both the 2nd and 3rd Hatchet films were included. Additional bonuses like the Zombie posters, the magazine and the signed art print made for one hell of a horror merch haul.
