”Incredibly refreshing – and bloody”
– Luke Rodriguez / Modern Horrors

”Remarkably effective, solid anthology movie. The tone is fun and light-hearted… with the emphasis on gooey, crunchy, splattery gore and solid, smart jokes. …A must-watch”
– Joey Keogh / Wicked Horror

”A talented ensemble of stars in frequently hilarious and tongue-in-cheek tales subverting horror tropes and a gleeful abundance of gory practical effects”
– Grant Hermanns / ComingSoon.net

”Whip-smart, inventive and endlessly funny”
– Anton Bitel / Sight & Sound

”The horror anthology is a treasured gem in the community. Fans often will deep dive into the niche in hopes of striking gold and it seems that every couple years, we are gifted with a standout performer. In the last decade we’ve been blessed with V/H/S, Southbound and X/X, all of which were deconstructions or intrinsic looks at a specific part of horror and now we have Scare Package, a charming glossy take on our reverence for nostalgia and obsessive fandom within horror.

Scare Package is smart as hell and that’s apparent out of the gate. — We’re introduced to our mostly main character, Rad Chad. Chad is a Joe Bob mutant fam obsessive who has modeled his video store in the same western motif that the genre host has, and Chad is on the border of gatekeeping as he hires Hawn, a new employee that he puts through rigorous tests to prove his worth to work in a video store. It’s in Rad Chad’s Horror Emporium that we are introduced to most of our segments, as videos being mentioned or played throughout. —

Scare Package truly is a gift. While all of the shorts may not hit for you directly, they’ll land with someone else, and thus make for a wonderful party viewing experience. Even without that, it’s just fun all around. It’s not just a simple throwback to eighties horror, or even a thoughtful and hilarious look at it, but instead it also examines our communities obsession with it and how we carry that with us even now. Scare Package is a charming, razor sharp, body melting, blood splashing good time.” – Ryan Larson / Ghastly Grinning
