February 23rd 2016
The last Bluray Tuesday of February has arrived. This week is filled with some really nice releases, I'm excited to add a lot of these to my collection. Scream/Shout Factory never fails and today is no exception with 3 new releases from them this week. First up is Wes Craven's The Serpent and the Rainbow Collectors Edition. I'm embarrassed to say I actually haven't seen this but that will change really soon. Scream Factory's other releases today are two double features, The Curse/The Curse 2 and Millennium/R.O.T.O.R. Other highlights this week are The Sinful Dwarf and Frankenstein. The Sinful Dwarf is being released by Severin Films with both the rated and unrated versions included for the first time on bluray, and loaded with bonus materials. Frankenstein is written and directed by the great Bernard Rose and also co-stars Candyman's Tony Todd. This one I will definitely pick up and check out this week. Rounding out this week is, Julia Roberts thriller, Secret in their Eyes, as well as Spotlight, Disney and Pixar's The Good Dinosaur and 1978's The Bee's. Overall a great week for horror releases to end February. 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.
