This is the Bluray Tuesday week I've been waiting for! It's the week Halloween (2018) finally hits shelves. I really enjoyed this direct sequel to the original and look forward to adding to my collection. Best Buy will carry an exclusive steelbook with alternate art for this title. Scream Factory is releasing quite a few titles today starting with Brian De Palma's Obsession with new scan and bonus material. Saturday The 14th, Howling 3, The Plague of the Zombies and The Glass Key round out the rest of the titles released from Scream/Shout Factory, all with new scans and bonus material. Goosebumps 2 hits shelves today in both standard Bluray and 4K. I missed this one in theaters and I really enjoyed the first one so I'm hoping this sequel is as much fun. Deadpool 2 got re-edited with new footage to make a holiday inspired PG-13 version titled Once Upon A Deadpool. This release also is a highlight for me. Deadpool 2 was great in its rated R form but now the younger audiences can also enjoy it. There are many films released today, what are you going to buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
