I FORGOT MY PASSWORD, HOW CAN I RETRIEVE IT?

HOW DO I START A FREE TRIAL?
Click the “Try It Free” button in the top right corner of any page. Create a membership using your Facebook account, or enter a valid email address and password. To watch content during your free trial, you will need to enter your name and a valid form of payment. You will not be billed until you have completed your free trial period, and you can cancel your subscription at any time.
I’M TRYING TO START MY FREE TRIAL. WHY AREN’T MY SIGNUP ATTEMPTS WORKING?
There are a couple possibilities:
- You already received a free trial and canceled your membership.
- You’re not in the United States; Screambox is only available from a U.S. IP address.
- Your method of payment is not valid for online recurring transactions; this is common for prepaid or reloadable debit cards.
- The ZIP code you’re using doesn’t match what the bank has on file.
- The 3-digit security code (or 4 if you are using American Express) is incorrect.
If you haven’t received a free trial in the past, and everything looks correct but you’re still unable to start your free trial, email email@example.com.

MY COMMENT WAS DELETED. WHY?
The Screambox community is primarily a self-governed environment. Our social media team moderates these discussions and, from time-to-time, removes a comment if we believe it is abusive or offensive to other Screambox users.
Additionally, users may sometimes report comments they find offensive directly to Facebook. Even though this is a Screambox Facebook page, we do not control what Facebook deems inappropriate. If you wish to contest being blocked, you will need to submit a petition through Facebook.
HOW CAN I LEAVE A COMMENT?
At Screambox our users have a voice. We believe true horror fans have a lot to say and Screambox is the place to connect with other liked-minded fans. Beneath each video player there is a comments section where you can tell the community what you think of that title.
