In this March’s edition of Horror Block, we have an exclusive item from The Ring this month, plus three more exclusive zombified items. Horror Block is personally my favorite of the Nerd Block subscription boxes, even though sometimes the things inside kind of gross me out (sorry guys, I have a weak stomach!) That being said, I have a pretty good feeling if there ever was a zombie apocalypse I will definitely be among the survivors, rebuilding humanity under my new Queendom of Ari Land!
Also it would certainly be hard to get me trapped in a death cycle like those people in The Ring. I don’t watch unmarked video cassettes. I don’t watch unmarked DVD’s. I don’t watch video cassettes or DVDs. I don’t even have a VCR! It’s all digital for me now, baby! So check out what dead things I unbox in the video below.

So I have way too many blocks in my house and not enough space. Which is good news for those who subscribe to our GeekGirl World youtube channel, because if you subscribe and comment on this video, you can win this Horror Block. It’s just that simple. I will send you this block for free! Check out the video below to see what is inside! Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel!
Call of Duty: Black Ops III is set for release on November 6, 2015, but we are getting our first official glimpses in to the game and the storyline. It looks a lot like it could have been called Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare II, because of the future tech and exo suits depicted in the trailer. However, the Black Ops brand definitely carries a lot more weight than the Advanced Warfare brand, so from a marketing standpoint this is an obvious decisive move to go with the label that will sell more games. It’s unclear how much in this trailer is actual game play or actual in-game cut scenes versus pre-rendered footage, but the graphics still look stunning.
Lots of mixed feelings going around with this new reveal, as Advanced Warfare was certainly popular enough to receive it’s own direct sequel, while many were also waiting for a new addition to Black Ops line that was more in keeping with the WWII/Vietnam/Cold War theme. The “Ember” film tease is a sobering foreshadowing of what we can only assume that Treyarch is considering the “New Cold War”.
At least we know zombies are returning again to the game and that is comforting! Pre-order is available now to get into the playable beta, though launch dates for the beta have yet to be determined.
You spent hours shopping in the stores and online looking for the perfect, modern, socially relevant Halloween costume, and finally your searching has paid off! You’re feeling confident, looking absolutely amazing and are ready to show that Halloween party what you’re made of.
Yet when you get there, things are looking spookily familiar. Turns out, you’re not the only one who had that perfect, modern, and socially relevant costume idea. Now the scariest part of your Halloween isn’t that creepy, realistic zombie in the corner who must have hired the makeup team from The Walking Dead, or the mystery of what actually is in the punch bowl, but the constant comparisons to another person’s costume.
Don’t be a cliche this Halloween! Here’s a list of some Halloween costumes for guys and gals to absolutely avoid this year.
ABSOLUTELY ANYONE FROM DUCK DYNASTY
This Halloween season we’re sure to see plenty of Robertson-would-be’s. All you need is camouflage pants, a semi-dirty black shirt, and a full, scratchy fake beard and voila – you’re a redneck millionaire. Add a blue plastic cup full of iced tea (or at least a drink costumed as iced tea),and then you can be the goofy, loveable and at times incoherent Uncle Si. It’s no secret that the world is in love with Duck Dynasty right now, and the costume itself is actually really easy and inexpensive. But that’s why you need to avoid it. In fact, many party stores and costume retailers are already carrying their own versions. Sure, it’s a great, crowd pleasing costume, but if you’re going to be out in public with many other costumed characters, you might want to reconsider this one.
WALTER WHITE (BREAKING BAD)
Continuing on with the TV costume trend, the notorious, fictional drug lord Walter White (Bryan Cranston) is another addition to this year’s costume ‘don’t’ list. Fan’s are still reeling from the recent series finale of the enormously popular AMC series Breaking Bad, so this Halloween we’ll definitely get to see many different variations of Walter White, including the basic bald caps and glasses to his crystal meth making safety gear.
An obvious inclusion, as well as a perennial favorite. Whether it’s the basic cat ears and whip, Michelle Pfeiffer’s messy stitched getup, Halle Berry’s original take, or a vintage take with Arkham City’s sexy yet functional suit, you can’t hit a Halloween party without seeing some variations of Gotham City’s sexy anti-hero, Selina Kyle.
NEARLY EVERY MODERN POPSTAR
A lot of pop stars utilize wacky, colorful get-ups in their performances, which makes recreating that as a costume extremely fun. The problem is, most of the time people have the same idea, and Halloween gatherings tend to look more like the VMA’s or a look-a-like convention. So while your Nicki Minaj costume may be supreme, chances are someone else is channeling her as well. Expect to see plenty of Nicki’s, Lady Gaga’s, Kesha’s, Katy Perry’s and, a perennial, Amy Winehouse’s this Halloween season.
