Happy Bluray Tuesday! I'm hoping everyone had a great Easter Weekend. A few cool blurays hit stores today. First up is M Night Shaymalan's Split. If you missed our review check it out here. Looking forward to owning this one. Scream Factory releases 90's cult classic Tales from The Hood, a personal favorite of mine as a kid. I'll be glad to have this remastered gem in my collection. The second release from Scream Factory is Contamination .7 aka Troll 3 for the first time on bluray as well. Donnie Darko is remastered and released again in a special digi book packaging. Fans of the DC Animated films can pick up its 28th in the series called Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. Target will carry a limited steelbook for this release so get to stores early if you wanna snag one. Arrow Video is releasing a 70's slasher called The Red Queen Kills Seven Times. This one looks interesting and I'm looking forward to checking this out in the near future. What will you be buying, renting or skipping this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
