Bluray Tuesday is back! This week brings a few cult classics to Bluray for the first time as well at The Walking Dead season 5. Olive Films releases The Babysitter (1995) with Alicia Silverstone this week, as well as The Sender (1982) and horror comedy Student Bodies (1981). I look forward to watching these 3 and I do have a few of these pre-ordered that should arrive tomorrow. My favorite release of this week is of course The Walking Dead season 5 and the Target Steelbook will be the edition I add to my collection. I just watched Fear The Walking Dead, it's a spin-off / prequel and it seems like a promising show. Fear The Walking Dead pulled in 10.1 million live viewers last night which is a great start to the series. This will definitely keep my Sundays busy until the premiere of Season 6 of The Walking Dead which premieres in October. Rounding out this week is Indie horror Sorrow, crime thriller Lila & Eve and a Scream Factory double feature. So what will you be buying, renting and or skipping this week? Let us know in the comments we would love to hear. Also check out our Instagram page Here.

The group is led by Rick Grimes, who was a police officer in the old world. As their situation grows more and more grim, the group's desperation to survive pushes them to do almost anything to stay alive.
