The Crate of Cthulhu

We have often acquired items of disturbing nature. But never before have we come across an object so abjectly horrifying in its implications.

Our contact‘s hands shook as he handed us this box. At first we thought him paranoid, fearing phantom assassins. But after opening that damned crate ourselves we realized the agents of the cult were all too real. Real, yes, but also the least of his fears.

Surely our members are familiar with the pulp contrivances of Mr. Lovecraft, whose feverish imaginings pass in and out of vogue. How terrible to realize his overwrought fictions are only sensational corruptions of the truth! How and where he laid his hands on the manuscript in this crate I do not know — but surely that knowledge haunted him to his dying day, as it will us. And perhaps you.

The typewritten document could be dismissed as the ramblings of a madman. The newspaper articles as coincidence. Even the bas-relief of the lunatic artist confirms little by itself... but the statue! The statue! The famous icon of Lovecraft's tale here revealed to the gaze and touch in all its scabrous, otherworldly malice. What hand made it? What vision inspired it? And what madness in the deep slumbers still, but must one day wake?

It is an altogether remarkable find. Yet even now I question the wisdom of unleashing the information contained therein onto the wider world. For after such knowledge, what forgiveness?

    Once again incredible

    The person I gifted this to (un)fortunately was already familiar with the company and products and knew what he was in store for - but that did not stop it from being another amazing experience and a blast in uncrating everything!

    Crate of Cthulu got our Lovecraft loving hearts racing as we read through everything and admired the unbelievable attention to detail in each artifact. Even after we went through it all another hour was easily spent picking up each piece of it and rambling about how cool it all is.

    These boxes are worth every single penny when you get to see the detail that goes into them and be apart experience they provide. That's what they really are - an experience.

    I can't recommend these enough! If you're on the fence about it, take this as your sign to just commit. Your loved ones will never receive anything like it again!

    Great experience

    Ordered the Crate of Cthulhu for my boyfriend who hasn't read any Lovecraft before to give him an immersive introduction into the mythos. The crate did a great job filling out the story with the supplemental articles and the statue is now on display in our nerd room. Will definitely be looking into another crate!

    Love it!

    I loved that it came in a wooden crate with all the old looking documents and paper clippings, it made the experience seem realistic. The statue itself was amazing

    fun

    It was a great gift to scare someone. The items look authentic. The only thing I was opposed to was that the letter in the container had the heading of Mysterious Package. I really think that gave it away where to search online for information. If you want to advertise, send a letter later. This was the second gift I have sent. The Weeping Book was hit. My sister called the police. They showed and did a background check on the missing person. That was hilarious. She was very very scared.

    Very cool!

    I sent this to my wife for her birthday, she was very creeped out by it! She gets genuine spooky vibes from the statue, and the coin has a satisfying weight to it. Very worth it.
