I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving weekend! And I hope Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals didn't completely drain your wallets because Bluray Tuesday arrives once again to add to the damage. First up from Scream Factory is 1990's Stephen King classic Misery starring Kathy Bates. Bates scared the hell outta me as a kid watching this, definitely an easy pickup for me with a new scan and bonus features. A24 releases Woodshock, a psychological thriller starring Kirsten Dunst. I've heard mixed reviews on this but the premise intrigues me. Remomory is another one this week that catches my eye that I also have not seen yet. Revenge indie thriller M.F.A is up next. It's about an art student turned vigilante. Blue Underground this week releases 70's slasher Deathdream for the first time on Bluray. Light week again, but filled with indie goodies. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
