Just because Halloween’s over certainly doesn’t mean horror films are just put away and never to be seen again. That’s why my first pick is Nightbreed (USA, 1990).Scream Factory has just released a Blu-ray of the director’s cut of Clive Barker’s fantastic story of monsters, men, and who’s capable of evil. Two versions released include the new cut and plenty of special features, and a limited edition (for the die-hards who want to own a physical copy) that includes an original cut on Blu-ray for the first time, as well as a ton of extra goodies including make-up tests, classes, and a thorough look at how this film was brought to life.
My other pick, not quite horror, but definitely scary at times and mostly filled with laughs, is Ghostbusters 1 and 2 (USA, 1984 and 1989, Sony Pictures), which are out on standard and 4K formats in one package with digibook.
