June 11th 2019
Our favorite day of the week returns! June starts off with something for everyone. First up is Leprechaun Returns, a direct sequel to 1993's original Leprechaun. This was a solid sequel with surprisingly good kills. I'd recommend checking this one out. Next up is indie slasher from 2001, Final Stab, which feels very 90's and hits Bluray for the first time. The biggest release today is Captain Marvel. Best Buy will carry an exclusive steelbook packaging and Target's exclusive is a digibook edition. I really enjoyed this Marvel movie and look forward to adding to the collection. Rounding out the week is The Entity from Scream Factory, romance drama Five Feet Apart and the 15th anniversary of Mean Girls with a pink bluray case. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? let us know in the comments. Until next week!
