Bluray Tuesday Is here once more and of course you all know is my favorite day of the week. I have read recently that starting this year sometime new release CD's will be released on Fridays instead of the normal Tuesdays. So I wonder if Blurays and DVDs will follow and do the same. Interesting for them to do that. My guess is doing this will catch more sales but we will see. This week on Bluray brings Kane Hodder's new horror film called Muck. Best Buy will carry it for only $9.99. No other horror is out this week on Bluray but also released today is Exodus: Gods & Kings. I have not seen this and I've heard mixed reviews but I may check this out sometime soon. On the DVD front, since not much out this week, is Brittnay Murphy's last film that has been delayed for a few years, called Something Wicked. Usually films being delayed for so long means it's bad but who knows, this may be somewhat good. I will watch it, of course. Thanks for reading weekly and be sure to comment on what Bluray's you are excited to add to your own collections. We would love to hear from others.
Muck: Best Buy - $9.99
After narrowly escaping an ancient burial ground, long forgotten and buried underneath the marshes of Cape Cod, a group of friends emerge from the thick, marshy darkness, tattered and bloody, lucky to be alive. They have already lost two of their friends in the marsh, presumably dead. They stumble upon an empty Cape Cod vacation house alongside the foggy marsh and break in to take shelter. Whatever was in the marsh is still after them and soon after one of them goes for help, the rest of the group learns that the evil in the marsh is not the only thing that wants them dead. Something worse, something more savage, was lying in wait just outside the marsh, in the house. What happens next is unspeakable horror that cannot be unseen. These unlucky travelers spend their St. Patrick's Day trapped between two evils forcing them to fight, die, or go back the way they came.
I was pretty excited to check this film out, especially when I saw Kane Hodder was a part of it. After watching I was scratching my head over many things that happened. I Googled more about Muck and found out this is basically the sequel in a trilogy that will be made over the next few years. The prequel to this film will be out later this year and the sequel will end the trilogy next year or so. So Muck is kind of the sequel in the series. The film starts abruptly and ends same way, I will check out the next two films to see what happened in the beginning and see how it ends. It's a very different approach for sure. The characters in Muck were unbelievable and made bad decisions throughout which kind of annoyed me, I mean we see this all the time in horror films but this one was different. Maybe it has to do with the acting quality. Kane Hodder is not in this as much as I wanted and I hope to see him more in the next in the series. If anyone checks this out please comment on how you felt about Muck and if you are looking forward to its sequels.
