First up is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. If you missed it be sure to check out our review here, it's also released in Ultra HD 4K Bluray if you have that setup. Arrow Video releases an awesome limited edition of the classic 1966 horror film Blood Bath. I have been seeing good things about this one and look forward to checking it out this week. 1981's Venom will be released from Blue Underground for the first time on bluray with a few new bonus features. On the new release front we have The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus's new heist film Triple 9. I missed this in theaters and am definitely looking forward to checking this out.
