March 1st 2016
Bluray Tuesday is back! The first of the month arrives with a bunch of new titles to add to our collections. Not many horror related films are out today but many Oscar nominated ones are released. You'll finally be able to check out any that you missed in theaters. On the horror front this week from Grindhouse Releasing is Pieces (1982), for the first time on bluray, and loaded with new bonus features. I am definitely picking up this release this week. Scream Factory/Shout Factory releases 2015's The Boy, which is actually a pretty good psychological thriller. I'd definitely recommend checking it out. Exclusive release out this week is the Rocky spin-off/sequel Creed in steelbook packaging only at Target. This is the second main release I'll be picking up today. Next up is The 88th Oscars Best Actress winner Brie Larson for Room, another definite pickup for me this week as well. Brie Larson is a great actress and I've heard nothing but amazing things about this film. Stay tuned the next few weeks, because this month has some pretty cool releases as well as more exclusives and steelbooks to add to our growing collections. Overall, this is a big start to the new month. So what will you be buying, renting or just skipping this week? Let us know in the comments. Also check out out Instagram page Here.
