Bluray Tuesday Featuring: Solo: A Star Wars Story, The [REC] Collection & Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich

September 25th 2018

The last Bluray Tuesday of September has arrived! There are some solid and collection worthy releases being put out today. Starting off with Solo: A Star Wars Story. When the trailer was first released, Solo looked like a weak cash grab. I had no intention of checking out right away but decided to buy tickets last minute and I was thoroughly surprised by how much I enjoyed the film. This week's number one pickup for me. Target will carry a bonus disc version as its exclusive in a book packaging and Best Buy will carry an exclusive steelbook. Long awaited US Bluray release of The [REC] Collection from Scream Factory finally comes out today with a new scan of all 4 films in the series. The first and second are the only ones I've seen so I'm looking forward to checking the rest out. Next up on Bluray and 4K Ultra HD is Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich which looks promising but for some reason falls flat. Vinegar Syndrome this week releases Body Melt and The House on Tombstone Hill. Both have really cool covers but blind buys for me. Severin is releasing Absurd and Anthropophagous for the first time on Bluray and if you order directly from Severin's site you can get an exclusive plushie from the Anthtopophagous film. Rounding out the week is comedy Uncle Drew, slasher film The Row, and 4K release of 1978's Halloween for it's 40th anniversary. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next week!
