March 12th 2018
Bluray Tuesday creeps up on us once again and it brings some pretty solid releases. First up is Nicolas Pesce's Piercing. I really enjoyed this film and am looking forward to adding to my collection. Pesce also directed 2016's The Eyes of My Mother which I really enjoyed as well. Scream Factory this week release's The Craft with a new scan and bonus features. I loved this film growing up and will for sure add this updated Bluray to the growing collection. Man's Best Friend is also released from Scream Factory today for the first time on Bluray. The biggest release of the week is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwad which takes place in the Harry Potter world. Best Buy will carry an exclusive steelbook for this and Target's version will be a digi-book packaging. I missed this one in theaters but I'm excited to check it out. Arrow Video is releasing 90's horror thriller, Kolobos for the first time on Bluray and the premise sounds great, like a reality show slasher kinda vibe. Rounding out the week is Mortal Engines, Green Book and Dark River. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
