Bluray Tuesday: Featuring 31, Hellraiser Box Set and The Magnificent Seven

December 20th 2016

Bluray Tuesday returns! A light week for new releases but a few cool additions to add to your Christmas lists. Rob Zombie's 31 which was highly anticipated before its release to limited theaters hits shelves today. If you missed our review of this film check it out here. Next up is The Scarlet Boxset including the first three Hellraiser films. This box set is really tempting and I will for sure pick this up in the near future. This set was released in The UK originally and finally found its way to the states. The Scarlet Box is loaded with bonus material and a cool 200 page book in the first limited wave copies. The Magnificent Seven reboot is released today as well. Best Buy will carry a 4K exclusive Steelbook packaging for this title. I haven't seen this one yet but I've heard good things and the cast is great. Rounding out the week is Tom Hank's Sully and family film Storks. Kinda expensive for a day one purchase at $24.99 but WB is known to release their titles pretty pricey. I'm sure in a few weeks both of these will drop in price significantly. So what will you be buying, renting or skipping this week? Let us know in the comments. Merry Christmas everyone and hoping you all have a great one! Until next week.

31: Amazon - $16.99

Five carnival workers are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large compound. At the mercy of their captors, they are forced to play a twisted game of life or death called 31.

Hellraiser 2: Confined to a mental hospital, young Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) insists her supposedly dead father is stuck in hell, controlled by sadomasochistic demons after being betrayed by his evil, occult-obsessed wife, Julia (Clare Higgins). Few believe Kirsty, except the thrill-seeking Dr. Channard (Kenneth Cranham), who is intrigued by S&M and the young woman's lurid stories.
