March 7th 2017
Our favorite day of the week returns! New month and new releases to add to our collections. First up is The Eyes of My Mother. This film is pretty crazy, intense and brutal and I think all horror fans should check it out. Incarnate hits shelves today, it didn't last long in the theaters and got really bad reviews. I tried watching and fell asleep on it, but I do want to give it another shot probably with a beer in hand to get through it. Scream Factory this week releases The Lesson. I feel like this took awhile to hit bluray. I think I saw this a few years ago but now I'll be available to own it. This release also comes with a cool slipcover. Synapse Films has been on a roll with their limited edition steelbooks, and this time they unleash 90's cult classic Popcorn. Popcorn is limited to 3,000 units only so act fast. If you pre ordered earlier you may have already received it, they shipped these out early and I must say its worth every dollar. 80's film Pulse is one I haven't seen before and at $4.99 I blind ordered it, so I'll be checking that out sometime this week. Ending this week is a big release from Disney titled Moana, which has a few retailer exclusives as well. Best Buy will carry a steelbook packaging for both the standard and 3D Blurays and Target will continue their Disney storybook edition. I've heard lots of great things about this film and it's packed with bonus features if you are into that. So what will you be buying, renting or skipping this week? Let us know. Until next week!

Popcorn (1991): Synapse Films - $45.95
A group of film students plan an all-night horror film festival in order to raise funds for their cinema club. They decide to show a number of (fictional) horror films from the 1950's that rely on gimmicks such as 3-D, "Odorama", and electrical "buzzers" in seats. Unbeknownst to the group, a homicidal maniac is stalking the theater where the festival is being held. A filmmaker named Lanyard Gates, who murdered his family during a screening of his only film in the 1970's, supplies the decoy killer character, since young Maggie may or may not be his missing daughter.
