Bluray Tuesday arrives once again! There are some great releases this week, my favorites are Cherry Falls and The Hateful Eight. If you pre-ordered from Scream Factory you've probably already received your copy of Cherry Falls but if not today is its official release. My only complaint would be that this release has no slip cover, which would have been really nice for this Bluray. Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is finally released today with a few retailer exclusives. Target will have its copy with extra bonus features and an exclusive cover. Only at Best Buy, The Hateful Eight receives an awesome steelbook edition that looks better in person, a must buy in my opinion. For the first time on Bluray we have 1972's Pigs and 1983's Frightmare, both of which I look forward to checking out sometime soon. I haven't seen either one but both seem interesting. Overall a pretty good Bluray Tuesday this week to wrap up March's releases. What will you buy, rent or just skip all together this week? Let us know and don't forget to check out our Instagram page Here. We love conversation and talking all things horror. Lastly next week is Star Wars The Force Awakens released finally on Bluray. I'm definitely looking forward to owning that. Until next week.
