Bluray Tuesday is back once more. This week is light but features new, old, and TV seasons to catch up on before the Fall TV season. First up is my number one pickup today Alien Covenant, the second film in the Alien prequel series. If you are a fan of Prometheus you will enjoy this one for sure. Best Buy will carry an exclusive steelbook of this film. Target will also have a retailer exclusive for Alien in a digi-book packaging with special bonus content. On the indie side is The Scarehouse which looks promising. I may check this out later in the week. This week we also get a re release of classic Stephen King film, Pet Semetary for a low price and 90's clown comedy, Shakes The Clown, starring Bobcat Goldthwait. TV seasons released today are Riverdale, the classic Archie comic book series comes to life with a murder mystery twist, Once Upon A Time season 6, the Disney series with many twists and turns and DC's Legends of Tomorrow the complete second season which ups the ante of its first season.
