Horror Pack – February 2019

Standard

What’s your favorite scary movie? I have quite a few favorites since I’m a big horror movie fan. From Children of the Corn to Bird Box and Hereditary, I’ve had my fair share of screaming and biting my nails throughout all the chillers and thrillers out there. Want to find the latest and scariest movies without flipping through Netflix for 30 minutes? Horror Pack is a subscription that sends you Blu-Ray or DVD’s every month to add to your movie collection! Each month you will get 4 movies including a limited edition, like this month I got a limited edition signed copy! They also have a RUE MORGUE’s Coffin Box that is a bi-monthly subscription bringing you the latest issue of Rue Morgue Magazine, a blu-ray, a t-shirt and 1 or more mystery collectible items! In this month for the Blu-Ray subscription we got;

  1. Misery by Rob Reiner written by Stephen King – This is such a classic horror movie to me, I saw it was I was pretty young and thought Kathy Bates was mesmorizing. Such an awesome movie with a famous author getting in car crash only to be saved by a crazed fan.
  2. The Violent Kind by Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores – ‘One night at a secluded farmhouse deep in the Northern California woods, a small group of hardened young bikers and their girlfriends are tormented when one of the girls becomes savagely possessed and a gang of “Rockabillies” seemingly from the 1950’s descends upon them to collect what is growing inside her.’ – Summary from IMDB.
  3. Some Kind of Hate by Adam Egypt Mortimer and Brian DeLeeuw – Love Justin Prentice from 13 Reasons Why, great actor. ‘A bullied teenager is sent to a reform school where he accidentally summons the spirit of a girl, herself a victim of bullying, who takes vengeance on his tormentors.’ – Summary from IMDB.
  4. President’s Day by Chris LaMartina – an exclusive for this box, this is a 2010 comedy horror film. ‘Follows a group of high school students being hunted by a madman in an Abraham Lincoln disguise.’ – Summary from IMDB. 

Starting at only $22.74 a month for a year’s subscription for Blu-Ray, or $17.74 for DVD’s  that’s under $6 a movie which are typically $20 in store! The coffin box is $19.99 a month. Order here;

Cellars Wine Club

Standard
Do you enjoy a nice glass of wine or beer with dinner? I sure do! Cellars Wine & Micro Beer Club are monthly subscriptions where you can choose from a wide range of clubs to get some exciting new bottles each month. Into reds only? No problem! How about sparkling? Yup they have that too! They’ve literally thought of everything so you can just sit back and let their experts select your next favorite wine, and let those bottles just roll into you! Not to mention this is an amazing gift idea. Gift someone a subscription or pass off some of your own subscription by gifting them bottles you receive, so perfect!
Now the hardest part, which club to join?! You can pick from 12 different wine clubs, ranging from reds only, whites only, international wines, sweet wines, natural wines, 90+ Point wines and case clubs and the one I chose, the Sparking Club. I have never seen that option before so figured I’ll try it out since I have quite a few bottles of white and red already. So regardless if your a novice or wine connoisseur, they’ve got a subscription for you!
For the Sparkling Club you’ll get 2 bottles a month with bubbles, champagne, and sparking wines, perfect for a celebration, bubbles on Sunday morning or to change things up! In this box we got;

  1. 2011 Gran Reserva Cava Brut by Agusti Torello Mata in Spain – this light one has spice and apple aromas and is a blend of Macabeu, Xarel-lo and Parellada.
  1. NV Brut Rosé by Jean-Louis Denois in France – this one is a smooth fruit forward dry rosé with 100% Pinot Noir with berry scents.

They have a ‘no bad bottle’ satisfaction guarantee, but trust me, you’ll love it! Costs range from $29-$79 depending how many bottles and what club you join, shipping included! That’s as little as $12 a bottle which is a steal! You can also choose from several nonprofit organizations to support with 15% of your purchase, at no extra cost to you. This is my closest southern border neighbor in WA so check them out & order here;

Mary’s Mixers

Standard

If you know me well, you obviously know about my caesar (and bloody mary!) obsession. Yes, I even created another Instagram account just to show it off. I love trying new spirits, from Gin and Tequila, to Whiskey and Vodka, new garnishes as you can never try them all! But the mix is always important. I typically reach for my regular ol’ Clamato brand, but I like to mix it up and do half and half with other mixers to get all the flavors and spices. I noticed Mary’s Mixers recently and wanted to try them out since they are a stones throw away in Portland, Oregon. They make small batches using only the freshest ingredients from the horseradish (which they ground up the day of!) to the pickle brine that is actually handmade!

The most exciting part? They’ve made the world’s first cocktail mixes infused with CBD! Whaaa? That’s right! They use high quality CBD from 100% hemp, it is non-psychoactive and is legal in the US. I was pretty sad because I couldn’t try this one since I’m from Canada but shared it with a deserving bartender at one of my fav spots in Bellingham during a visit. So folks, test this one out and tell me what it’s like pretty please!!! 

They have a few different products including their Original Bloody Mary Mix and the Spicy Hot, as well as the Original or Spicy Hot with 30mg of CBD. Starting at $12.99 without CBD and $16.99 with.
