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.

Pretty good week of releases. The headliner is easily Bride of Re-Animator which very well may be the Blu-ray of the year!

What results is a kind of sideways parody of “The Bride of Frankenstein”…
