Bluray Tuesday returns this week with some cool pickups. First up from Synapse is the remastered Suspiria in exclusive steelbook packaging. A must own for sure, I will be getting my copy soon before they sell out. Synapse Film's website doesn't have it listed anymore but Amazon is still carrying it. Next up is one of my favorites of the year, and probably in my top 3 horror films of 2017 Mother! This film is so crazy and messed up, I had to check it out a second time to decide how I felt. I highly recommend this film. If you missed it check out our review here. Lionsgate this week releases another prequel in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise titled Leatherface. I honestly didn't care too much for this prequel it had some gross out scenes but besides the last 3 minutes it didn't feel like a "Leatherface" film. Overall I'll probably buy it to add to the collection because I'm a completest, but I highly recommend a rent first. Christopher Nolan's newest film Dunkirk hits shelves today and Best Buy will carry an exclusive Steelbook for it. Rounding out the week is The LEGO Ninjago Movie, the spinoff of The LEGO Movie and Best Buy will exclusively carry a steelbook packaging for this as well. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
