The Digital Dread Report for September 30th

September is nearly gone, but it's got one final week of Blu-ray & DVD Releases up it's sleeve for us. This week is definitely a "smaller" one, compared to the past few behemoths we've endured, and that's fine with us.

With October (and all of its expenses) coming, our wallets can use a breather.

We're right in the middle of finishing up our review of Cold In July, so until it's posted, let us give you an abbreviated version of our thoughts on the film: Holy shit that was awesome! This is one hell of a flick, filled with some brilliant actors giving equally brilliant performances, and it boasts one of the greatest finales that we've seen in a movie this year. If there's one disc that we're buying this week, it's Cold In July, without a doubt. Especially for $16, it's just a no-brainer.

The rest of this week's Blu-ray releases are mostly older Genre flicks. Blue Thunder and Krull are both fun flicks that we grew up on, and since both are under $10, we'll gladly add them to our Blu-ray trove. The same can be said for I Know What You Did Last Summer and Interview With the Vampire; both are 90's staples that we'll gladly revisit in HD quality, and the price is right for both.

Leprechaun: The Complete Movie Collection isn't for us, but we can see how fans of schlocky Horror will eat this set up. For better or worse, this collection contains all 7 Leprechaun movies, so you know, if it's your thing, good deal?

Leprechaun: Origins can suck it.
Transformers 14 can suck it.

Delivery: The Beast Within (our review HERE) is a Found Footage flick that really surprised us, mainly because we actually liked it. It's definitely worth a rent at $3.99, and a buy isn't out of the question at $15.99. We'd recommend you rent it first though, just to be safe.

Killer Fish is a crazy-ass B-movie from 1979 that's stars some angry piranha; a cheesy, dam-destroying tornado; and the Bionic Man. It's also got the late, great, Karen Black in it, so bonus. This looks like it's one of those "so bad that it's good" type of movies, so we'll sit tight and hope that Rifftrax lampoons it one of these days.

We'll take a pass on both The Last Light: An Irish Ghost Story and Last Step Down, and Grave Halloween is a Syfy Original, so you know, buyer beware.

Spend your time & money wisely, folks. *Unless you're a rebel, then have at it.
