June 26th 2018
This year is flying by, it's already the last Bluray Tuesday of June. This week is filed with indie releases both new and old. From Well Go USA is The Endless from directors Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead who also directed Resolution, Spring and the best short in VHS 3, Bonestorm. The duo were also the guests on last week's episode of the Overlook Hour, which you can find on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcast updates. Arrow Video releases 90's Vampire film The Addiction for the first time on Bluray and I look forward to revisiting this one soon. Scream Factory releases 40's horror film The Curse of The Cat People also the first time on Bluray. The premise sounds interesting on this one. Criterion Collection titles released this week are Female Trouble & The Virgin Spring both with new scans and bonus material. Continuing with the first time on Bluray is Blood Theatre from Vinegar Syndrome and this film looks right up my alley so I'm definitely going to pick this one up. Rounding out the week is Escape Plan 2, a sequel I didn't even know was being made, Russian thriller The Return and Tyler Perry thriller Acrimony. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
