It's that time if week again, Bluray Tuesday. First up today is 80's horror film Offerings. I've never seen this but it's released today for the first time on bluray and it sounds right up my alley, so it's a definite pickup for me. Next up from Arrow Video is fantasy horror Images for the first time on bluray with new bonus material. Scream Factory releases Nightmare at Noon and Rockula, both on Bluray for the first time. Takashi Miike's cult classic Ichi the Killer hits shelves today from Well Go USA. It's remastered and comes with a cool slip cover. The biggest release today is the sequel to 1995's Jumanji titled Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle. I was skeptical (still am) on this one due to loving the original as a kid and the trailer for this looks like a bad update but I have heard numerous good things about this film so I'm looking forward to giving it a chance. Best Buy will carry an exclusive 4K steelbook on this one. Closing out the week are the final film in the Pitch Perfect trilogy Pitch Perfect 3, Downsizing and indie horror film Delirium. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
