Bluray Tuesday returns once again and a few new horror titles are out today to add to our collections. Scream Factory releases three new titles today starting with Emelie, about a babysitter that's not all that she seems to be. Submerged is the main one of the three I'm looking forward to checking out this week; a group of friends trapped in a limo submerged in a canal after getting away from kidnappers. Blind buy for me this week for sure. Sharkansas Women's Prison Massacre is one I don't take too seriously but I kind of want to check out. I hope it's one of those so bad it's good kind of parody films. On to the main released bluray's of the week stars with The 5th Wave, which is based on a book series similar to The Hunger Games but has to do with aliens. Jennifer Lawrence's new film Joy is finally released today with and exclusive slipcover only at Target. Last but not least is 1996's Independence Day for the first time on bluray just in time to catch up for its sequel, which is being worked on now. 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.
