Every week we will be bringing you some highlights of the new Blu-ray and 4K UHD releases coming to home media. We won’t feature every release because there may be more than you think. Especially if you are normally just used to what you see in Best Buy or Target on your trips. For a full list of releases please take a look at our coming soon release list. For now, kick back and see what releases we here at TNM think you should take a look at. We’ll also note which of those we already have reviews for or any upcoming. These are the new Blu-ray releases for the week of 12/4.
We have the standard editions of the previously released films from the American Horror Project. I’ve included the Arrow Video Story of the trailer because it shows what some of the extras are and gives you an idea of the films. If you want to get really in depth you can take a listen to Rich and Garrett’s Film from the Basement episode covering all three films.
Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood (1973) The Norris family get jobs working at a seedy old carnival as a cover for searching for their missing son who disappeared after visiting said carnival. Eccentric manager Mr. Blood turns out to be a vampire while the evil owner Malatesta rules over a gaggle of ghastly ghouls who watch silent movies when they aren’t feasting on human flesh.
The Premonition (1976) This Thriller/horror movie tells the tale of a young girl who is terrified that her insane mother will take her away from her beloved foster mother. One day, the crazed real mother attempts to contact the girl at school, but her foster mother has a premonition and gets there in time to protect the girl. Eventually though, the real mother and her boy friend, a carnival clown, succeed and takes her away, leaving the bereaved foster parents to enlist the assistance of a parapsychologist to help them interpret the foster mother’s terrifying dreams and psychic connection to the girl and find her before it is too late.
The Witch Who Came from the Sea (1976) A disturbed woman is haunted by memories of childhood abuse, which culminates in a murder spree.
From Lionsgate we will be having a review upcoming of the 4K UHD of American Assassin. Besides the 4K you can also pick up the standard Blu-ray and Best Buy has an exclusive Steelbook® also.
American Assassin (2017) Long before he began hunting terrorists, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college scholar/athlete. Then, tragedy struck and Rapp was recruited into the nation’s most elite covert operations program. After completing training designed to teach the kind of lethal skills necessary to target our most dangerous enemies, here and abroad, he is a man reborn with a mission of retribution.
Paramount has quite a few different things this week. The beginning seasons of South Park have finally come to Blu-ray. For the 4K UHD lovers the rest of the Transformers films join The Last Knight. Finally, the Event Series of Twin Peaks makes an anticipated release, at least for one of out TNM reviewers. When asked about it Garrett said “In what I consider the greatest single series event on television, the visual and intuitive storytelling by Lynch and Frost make it an unforgettable release perfect for this holiday season”
