The last Bluray Tuesday this month has arrived. This month ends with a few double features from Shout Factory / Scream Factory as well as some Independent horror films. Let Us Prey looks interesting and at $10 I did get it as a blind buy and will check out this week. Madman, an 80's slasher film, releases this week for the first time on Bluray as well. This one I am excited to check out. I haven't seen this and I love 80's slashers so will definitely check this out. It would be great to screen someday soon. What films will you buy, rent or pass on this week? Let us know below in the comments.

These gigantic beasts start terrorizing the island, with an athlete named Morgan (Marjoe Gortner) among those who are fighting for their lives against the gargantuan creatures.
Frogs: Unsurprisingly, grumpy Southern chemical baron Jason Crockett (Ray Milland) is not terribly concerned with the environment. When Pickett Smith (Sam Elliott), a wildlife photographer in the area, stumbles upon the snakebitten corpse of Crockett's gardener, who was sent out to spray pesticide, he knows something is amiss.

Jaws of Satan: While being transported via train to a carnival, a king cobra is let out of its box by Satan, and it kills two railroad workers. The snake flees into the night, under the influence of demonic powers. It eventually heads toward a small Alabama town, ready to strike in the name of evil.
