May 26th 2020


The last Bluray Tuesday of the month and it's a pretty light week. First up is one of the last theater films I've seen this year, The Invisible Man, and I highly recommend it.

Another film released for the first time on Bluray is Blood Tide from Arrow Video. Rounding out the week is Escape From L.A. from Scream Factory, Maniac and Zombie from Blue Underground in a new 4K release, and Pale Blood from Vinegar Syndrome.

Once again, Snake is recruited by the President's men to complete an impossible task: penetrate the Sodom that is L.A., retrieve the device, and eliminate Utopia.
