New to Blu – Week of 10/10/2017

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.

The second week of October releases is a bit on the light side but heavy on quality! Kino Lorber has two new Mario Bava releases out this week with Kill, Baby…Kill! and Roy Colt and Winchester Jack. For Bava fans those two are mandatory purchases for this week. The Poughkeepsie Tapes from Scream Factory and The Green Slime from Warner Archive are the other big US releases for me this week. So the releases may be few, but what we’ve got our great!
