September 27th 2016
The first Bluray Tuesday of the Fall season is upon us. Many exciting releases both new and old to add to our growing collections. First up is one of my favorite films of this year The Neon Demon. This is definitely a collection-worthy film. Check out our review here if you missed it. Next up today is Blake Lively's new shark horror film The Shallows. We also reviewed this one so you can check that out here as well. Scream Factory releases 80's cult classic Lady in White for the first time on bluray. Also for the first time on bluray are two other 80's horror films both in their unrated forms from Vestron Video, Blood Diner and Chopping Mall. I'm sad to say I haven't seen these but that will change this week for sure. Warcraft, based on the popular role playing game, hits shelves today with a few retailer exclusives including bonus disc at Best Buy and character cards exclusively at Target. So what will you be buying, renting or just skipping this week? We would love to know what you are excited to add to your own collections. Check out our Instagram and Facebook pages. We love conversation and talking all things horror. Until Next Week!
