Halloween Eve just happens to also be Bluray Tuesday! This week is filled with titles that can help ring in our favorite holiday. First up this week is Mandy. Definitely not a film for everyone but I really enjoyed it and I feel is a collection worthy film. Scream Factory releases indie horror Our House. The premise sounds really interesting and I will check out in the near future for sure. Blood Harvest is the second blind buy of the week for me. This may be the one I'm most interested in and I really like the premise and cover. Arrow Video releases Torso for the first time on Bluray this week. It comes with a new scan and bonus material. Slender Man quietly hits shelves today. I honestly kinda forgot about this one or thought it had already been released. I'd recommend renting first... it's not what I expected but I've definitely seen worse. Rounding out the week is a few films from Vinegar Syndrome, The Killing Kind, Def By Temptation, comedy films The Spy Who Dumped Me, Teen Titans Go! To The Movies and for the first time on Bluray Batman The Complete Series. What will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Happy Halloween!
