New to Blu – Week of 6/13/2017

New to Blu-ray

Each week here at Bloody Disgusting we like to highlight some of the new Blu-ray releases hitting shelves across the world. Please note that this isn’t every release for the week, just a few of the ones that jumped out at us.

Not a huge week of releases this week, but some really good stuff. The big one is John Wick: Chapter 2 which is amazing and everyone should own. The cooler genre stuff would be Arrow’s release of Madhouse, Shout Factory’s Alienator and Mondo Macabro’s Inquisition. Heading over to our friends in the UK and Shameless delivers All the Colours of the Dark and 88 Films gives us Lamberto Bava’s Boddy Puzzle. Definitely quality of quantity this week!
