|Vault Master's Pick of the Week!|
Greetings fellow collectors, and welcome to another (late) edition of Stock Your Vault! This week is filled with new titles on Blu-ray and 4K disc, so hopefully you've been prepping for a few weeks, squirreling away a little extra expendable income to help grow your physical media collection!
There were a lot of new 4K titles released this week: Sony Pictures released I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, as well as new 4K steelbooks of CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, THE FIFTH ELEMENT, and a "reprinting" of their Limited Edition double feature of GHOSTBUSTERS & GHOSTBUSTERS II!
Blue Underground added to the 4K flood with THE GIRL FROM RIO, Paramount (who seems to be vying to be the most popular studio with collectors) with their new 4K steelbook of HALLOWEEN H20, Arrow Video with CARLITO'S WAY, Criterion with MOONAGE DAYDREAM (starring David Bowie!), and Synapse Films with their standard edition of Argento's TENEBRAE.
On the Blu-ray side, we got two shot-on-video titles from Visual Vengeance, namely THE ABOMINATION and REPLIGATOR, AMAZON JAIL 1 & 2 (a Brazilian exploitation double feature) from Vinegar Syndrome, Kino Lorber's DEATH WISH 4: THE CRACKDOWN and DEATH WISH V: THE FACE OF DEATH, and a classic b-movie double feature of THE GIANT GILA MONSTER and THE KILLER SHREWS from Film Masters!
Disney released season one of Marvel's above average LOKI TV series (also available on 4K), Strand Releasing unveiled their long-awaited "remixed and remastered" Blu of THE DOOM GENERATION, and Severin Films gave us DRACULA AND SON starring Christopher Lee!
With so many great titles out this week, I was hard-pressed to choose one to be my "pick of the week!" In the end I settled on Scream Factory's new 3-Disc 4K Collector's Edition of George Mihalka's Canadian slasher, MY BLOODY VALENTINE. While it is essentially a repackaging of the previous Collector's Edition Blu-ray, this release does feature an all new 4K restoration of the uncut version of the movie, plus new (but old) cover art!
Believe it or not, even after rattling off all of those titles, there's still plenty of other new discs out this week, so be sure to scroll down to see the full list of new Blu-rays and 4Ks!
