This week’s edition of Horror in Your House is led by the rather lackluster Survival of the Dead. A&E Home Entertainment is releasing five horror films from the Lifetime Network’s horror catalog. Really, they have a horror catalog. In other news, a couple nice triple features are being released, one featuring the excellent gore comedy, Big Bad Wolf. Catch up on what else is coming out Tuesday by reading below.
