Blusday has arrived once again! Just two horror related releases one from scream factory and another through Anchor Bay. Extraterrestrial is a sci fi horror themed film with aliens. The Drownsman from Anchor Bay was a surprise I saw many good reviews and checked this out the other day and after a slow start I really enjoyed this film and I can see this getting a sequel and becoming a franchise in the future. Rolling out the rest of the releases this week are a drama titled Still Alice starring Julianne Moore who went on to win an Academy Award for Best Actress for this film. Blackhat a action thriller with Chris Hemsworth from the Marvel films. Last but not least Mortdecai a action comedy film with Johnny Depp and Gweneth Paltrow.
