September 18th 2018
It's that time of week again. This week's releases, both new and older, are pretty solid. Scream Factory release Scream For Help for the first time on Bluray with a new scan. Also from Scream Factory this week is another first time on Bluray release of 1978's horror thriller The Evil. I'm hearing about both of these films for the first time and I look forward to checking these out. Denise Richards and Mischa Barton's new horror film The Toy Box also hits shelves today. The Toy Box cover reminds me of Hills Have Eyes for some reason and I may blind buy this week. I'm hoping it's good but am also not holding my breath. The biggest release this week is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom the fifth installment in the Jurassic Park series. I really enjoyed this sequel, it's pretty dark and takes a different turn for the franchise. Target will carry an exclusive digibook packaging with a bonus disc and Best Buy's exclusive is a steelbook packaging. Next up from Well Go USA is Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum, Phantasm 3 and Phantasm 4. If you never got the Phantasm box set these are perfect to complete the single release set. Rounding out the week is Season 3 of Supergirl, Season 11 of The X-Files and Keanu Reeves thriller Siberia. What will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
