January 2nd 2018
Happy New Year! I'm hoping you all had a good holiday. This marks the first Bluray Tuesday of 2018 and there are some solid releases to start off the new year. Scream Factory releases Hell Night as apart of their collector's edition line with new bonus material. Haunt attraction film The Houses October Built 2 releases today from Image Entertainment. This sequel could have been really good but, like many 2017 sequels, it sadly fell short. American Made is the biggest release today starring Tom Cruise in yet another action film. It has gotten good reviews and feedback. Miss Zombie also comes out today and this is one I really look forward to checking out. I haven't heard anything about this foreign film but I like the premise. Rounding out the week is a long awaited Criterion release of the classic film The Breakfast Club. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
