|Vault Master's Pick of the Week!|
Greetings fellow collectors, and welcome to another edition of our (somewhat weekly) Stock Your Vault column! Last week may have hit your bank accounts hard, and next week most certainly will, but this week is pretty light on new titles so feel free to take a breather!
Scream Factor's lone release was the mostly forgotten LOST SOULS (released theatrically back in 2000), Arrow Video gave RINGU a nice limited edition 4K release (grab it if you want the new artwork, double-sided foldout poster, and collectible booklet that are exclusive to this release!), and for all of you luchador fans, Indicator continues to break into the U.S. market, this time with two (standard edition) Blu-rays of SANTO VS. EVIL BRAIN and SANTO VS. INFERNAL MEN!
Warner Bros. dropped their 50th Anniversary 4K of Friedkin's THE EXORCIST, Universal hit us with a pair of new 4K discs for THE BLACK PHONE and COCAINE BEAR (two of my recent favorites!), and Radiance Films added THE DEAD MOTHER to their slowly-growing catalog! And with so little in the way of competition this week, it was easy to choose Sony Pictures' THE LAST DRAGON as my "pick of the week!" With its new 4K restoration, new Dolby Atmos audio track, steelbook packaging, and new fan commentary, it's definitely a worthy upgrade that fans will definitely want to pick up!
I've pretty much mentioned everything that's out this week, except for a handful of new anime titles, but feel free to scroll a tad bit further to see the entirety of this week's measly lineup! And again, brace yourselves because next week is loaded with lots of great new releases from just about every boutique Blu-ray label out there, with a smattering of slasher films, shot-on-video epics, international cult films, giallos, classic creature features, and more just waiting for you to buy them!
