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 finally week of Blu-ray releases for 2016 has arrived! It’s a light week, especially here in the US, but some good stuff. The latest team-up between Nicolas Cage and Paul Schrader has arrived with Dog Eat Dog which I can’t wait to see because I love Cage. Plus Ti West’s latest flick In a Valley of Violence arrives. So far West has yet to disappoint.
