Bluray Tuesday returns! This week is light on horror but there are a few releaaes that do look interesting. Scream Factory releases Antibirth in a bluray / DVD combo pack. This film is kind of weird to say the least. I saw it last year and I'm still not sure how I feel about it but am looking forward to a re-watch. Severin releases Wild Beasts for the first time on bluray. I haven't seen or heard of this one but it sounds cool and may be fun. Barbara Crampton's new film which isn't related to horror, Little Sister, hits shelves as well this week. Checked out trailer and it looks like a good dark comedy. I look forward to checking out in the near future especially for Barbara Crampton. I met her twice just last year and she's great! Very personable and easy to talk to. In case you missed it, you can check out The Overlook Hour podcast episode 14 here where a few of the Overlook creatures chat with her about films and more. DC Comics's new animated film Justice League Dark is one I'm for sure ready to check out. While the live action DC films may be hit or miss, these animated films get it right 95% of the time. Justice League Dark is also rated R this time around and the limited steelbook edition will be at Target. If you are into graphic novels, Best Buy will carry an exclusive comic with its copy. So this week is filled with many different kinds of film and I'm sure there is something for everyone on this weeks lineup. So what will you be buying, renting or skipping this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
