December 15th 2015
Our favorite day of the week is back! It seems like the weeks are flying by lately. This week there are many retailer exclusives to drain our wallets. With Christmas just around the corner, some of these would be great stocking stuffers. First up Shout Factory/Scream Factory releases a few titles: The Car, Zombie High and The Dungeonmaster/Eliminators double feature. I'm not familiar with any of these but look forward to checking them out in the near future. Arrow releases Blood Rage (1987) for the first time on bluray and this seems like a nice release I also look forward to checking out. Best Buy has a deal if you buy both The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials steelbooks you save $5 which makes these $30 for both which is a good deal. Fantastic 4 and Mission Impossible 5 also get the steelbook treatment only at Best Buy. I want to grab these for sure. Target also has their own exclusives for these films but with a bonus book and bonus content. Last but not least Ted 2 is out today with a cool steelbook only at target. Surprisingly, I really liked the first one and I will definitely own this steel and watch soon. So what will you be buying, renting or just skipping this week? Let us know in the comments and don't forget to check out our Instagram page Here. We love to talk about horror and what new films are coming out.
