Bluray Tuesday Featuring: Candyman, Urban Legend & Luciferina

November 20th 2018

This weeks ends with Black Friday, which has many cool deals on Bluray's but there are still some cool collection worthy titles released today to potentially add to our growing collections. First up is Scream Factory's releases of Candyman and Urban Legend both with new scans, bonus material and artwork as the most recent editions to their collector's edition lines. Urban Legends Final Cut is also released for the first time on bluray from Scream Factory to go along with the original. I'm looking forward to owning all three of these after the Black Friday madness because I love these films. Next up is a newer release from Artsploitation Films, Luciferina. This title seems really interesting and screened at PUFF 3 just a couple of months ago, so several Overlook creatures got to see it on the big screen then. Rounding out the week is sci-fi action film Kin, comedy box office success Crazy Rich Asians, and well reviewed Blindspotting. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Have a great Thanksgiving week!

Candyman: Amazon - $34.99

A children's story comes to terrifying life in this gut-wrenching thriller about a graduate student whose research into modern folklore summons the spirit of the dead. Helen Lyle scoffs at superstition, but when she hears about Candyman, a slave spirit with a hook hand said to haunt a notorious housing project, she has a new twist for her thesis. To prove Candyman doesn't exist, Helen heads to the site of a brutal murder to call for him by saying his name five times. To her horror, he appears, igniting a string of gruesome murders. But the police don't believe in monsters, and Helen is charged with the grisly crimes. Only one person can set her free: Candyman.

Some Like It Hot: Amazon - $22.99

Two down on their luck jazz musicians find themselves on the run after the police raid the speakeasy they perform in. With nowhere to hide, a gig with Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators at a beach resort seems like the perfect getaway. There's just one problem: the Syncopators are an all-female band, and Joe and Jerry aren't women — yet. Armed with some dodgy wigs and wobbly falsettos, they manage to join the Syncopators and meet Sugar Kane: a hooch-swilling, ukulele-playing knockout with a soft spot for saxophone players. Things start to go off the rails when they begin to attract unwanted attention from lecherous millionaires and some familiar faces show up at their hotel for a gathering of the country's most dangerous criminals.
