After a few weeks of decent releases, this week’s Horror In Your House is pretty weak. While Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island gets a DVD/Blu-ray release – and who knows if it’s even good on second viewing – there are only a small handful of other genere films arriving at a retailer near you. Read on to see the list.

SHUTTER ISLAND (DVD & Blu-ray): Paramount (TEX’S PICK OF THE WEEK)
When U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels arrives at the asylum for the criminally insane on Shutter Island, what starts as a routine investigation quickly takes a sinister turn. As the investigation unfolds and Teddy uncovers more shocking and terrifying truths about the island, he learns there are some places that never let you go.
TEX SAYS: Well…I guess this is a default PICK OF THE WEEK since basically NOTHING is releasing today. That said, I do think Shutter Island is a worthy film with a pretty killer vibe going for it. So, check it out!
