March 27th 2018
This month has flown by and here we are at the last Bluray Tuesday of March. First up is Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, remastered and released from Scream Factory along with a few new bonus features. This one is must pickup for me and the slip cover is nice! Also from Scream Factory are Steelbook editions of Prince of Darkness and Assault on Precinct 13. 80's cult classic Scanners hits Bluray today as apart of the Criterion line and it's remastered as well. The remastered trend continues with Arrow Video re-releasing a new copy of Killer Klowns from Outer Space. I love this film and may double dip on this release. The biggest release today is Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. This comes in a few different versions, standard Bluray, 4K Ultra HD and a few retailer exclusives. Target will carry a digibook packaging and Best Buy will carry an exclusive Steelbook. Mr. Robot season 3 and Marvel's Legion season one both drop today as well just in time to catch up before the new seasons air coming soon. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
