A Serbian Auction???
Last Monday, the baby prop from “A Serbian Film” was placed up on eBay for auction with a bid quickly being placed on it for upwards of $6000. As the prop is no longer available on the selling site, people figured this meant that it had been sold. A week later, we’ve come to find out that said prop, was removed by the site, likely due to what it was used for in the film. The following is the update from this story.

Horror At The Box-Office
Not much has changed as opposed to last week. ‘Breaking In’ and ‘A Quiet Place’ are still slowly making their way down the top ten while 'Rampage’ has dropped into eleventh.
The biggest news to see is how 'Hereditary’ will rank come it's opening next weekend on June 8th. Considering it's being presented to us as one of the scariest films in years, I believe there’s going to be a fairly decent monetary gain coming to them, enough so to hopefully put horror on top of the rankings yet again!

HORROR SHOP OF THE WEEK: CREEPER CRATE
A few weeks ago, I told you about a time when I became fully disenchanted with commercial horror boxes that lacked originality, quality, or value. The first indie subscription box I discovered to fill the void in my horror heart was Creeper Crate — an extremely affordable monthly box of unique horror merchandise, bath and beauty products, enamel pins and accessories.
Unlike those other boxes, this one featured products form small businesses worth of support. I discovered this box on Instagram and had only missed a few boxes when I decided to sign up.
When the first box arrived, I was completely blown away. Finally! This was the kind of overwhelming satisfaction I had been looking for. It was as if the box had been curated especially for me, and every item was absolutely perfect.
Remarkably, almost unbelievably, each new box seemed to be better than the last. Since I ordered my first box, I’ve never missed a month. And I’ve never once thought of unsubscribing. While I may dip in and out of other subscriptions and try out other boxes, this is the one that I consider essential. This is the one I look forward to with the most anticipation.
Not only am I in love with this shop, but I’ve also grown incredibly fond of the owner. She is so kind and generous, incredibly supportive of her fellow indie and horror shop community, and just the most genuine person. She loves her customers and does everything she can to make sure each and every one of them is absolutely in love with everything she puts out and the service they receive.
Now, up until this point, this box was tailored primarily to women — with a great mix of horror and girly stuff like makeup and bath products. While I loved the feminine touch and all the great pampering products, I was thrilled to hear that the next box released — which happens to be an unbelievable Officially Licensed Vincent Price Box (approved by the Vincent Price Estate and Agency) — will be unisex!
I’m so curious and excited to see what kind of items will be included. And I’m really happy that an even broader audience will soon be able to appreciate these killer boxes.
You have until June 15th to pre-order the Price Box (no leftovers after that date) from the Creeper Crate website at http://www.creepercrate.com. Be sure to also follow the shop on Instagram at @creepercrate for the newest box themes and release dates.
