Bluray Tuesday: Featuring The Gate, We Are The Flesh & Dr. Strange

February 28th 2017

The last Bluray Tuesday of February arrives! This week there are lots of good releases to add to our collections. From slashers, anthologies, supernatural, foreign and monster horror films, there's something on this list for everyone. Vestron Video releases its 8th collector's series bluray today, The Gate. It's filled with bonus features, a new scan and the first time on bluray. Arrow Video releases new foreign indie horror, We Are The Flesh. Interesting premise but I'm not sure if this one is for everyone. I'm looking to give this one a try. The newest Marvel Studios feature Doctor Strange also hits shelves today. Doctor Strange blew me away in theaters, it's visually beautiful and surprisingly fun. I'm looking forward to seeing him in future Marvel films. Exclusively at Best Buy you can pick up steelbook packaging to match the previous Marvel steelbooks. Scream Factory releases 80's anthology horror film Deadtime Stories. This will be a first time watch for me, I'm a big fan of anthology horror and will be watching this sometime this week. Vinegar Syndrome releases slasher horror Slaughterhouse. I saw this pretty recently, last year or so, and look forward to owning it soon.
The Oscars aired this passed Sunday and everyone is still talking and posting about the mix up with Best Picture of 2016 but Moonlight ultimately won that title. Great film and well deserved. If you haven't seen it you can finally own today as well. So what will you be buying, renting or skipping this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
