Welcome to the last Bluray Tuesday of the month. First up is Jigsaw the 8th in the Saw series. I wasn't sure how they would pull off an 8th film considering how Saw: The Final Chapter ended, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I recommend checking it out if you are a fan of the series and be sure to check out my new post where I'll be ranking all 8 films, coming soon. Best Buy will be carrying an exclusive steelbook packaging for this film as well. Next up is psychological thriller The Killing of A Sacred Deer. This film is weird, intense, at times confusing but overall really great. I'd recommend this one as well. Red Krokodil releases today from Unearthed Films in all its director's cut glory. Rounding out this week is Dario Argento's Opera from Scorpion Releasing, disaster film Geostorm, Robert Englund's Dance Macabre and Shout Factory's My Entire High School Sinking Into The Sea. This week has some solid releases to add to our collections! What will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
