Blu-ray & DVD Releases: The Digital Dread Report for February 3rd

Once again it's time to take a quick peek at the week's Blu-ray & DVD releases, and the first week of February offers plenty of options for the movie-lovers in all of us. Movie addicts may be more appropriate.

*Be sure to click the links below to order whatever tickles your fancy, because if you're going to do it anyhow, you might as well do it through us. Right? Right.

For $11, that 1408/The Mist 2-pack will be definitely be joining our collection. They're both good flicks, and the price is more than right.

Starry Eyes (our review HERE) was one of our favorite movies of 2014, and one that we'd gladly own on Blu-ray.If you like surreal and visceral Horror, then it's definitely worth checking out.

The way that we felt about The ABCs of Death 2 (our review HERE) is exactly how we felt about the first one; it's a fun one-off movie-watching experience that we really don't feel much of a need to revisit. We saw it, we got the point, and we're good. That's just us though.

If you like ultra-violent action flicks, then it doesn't get much better than John Wick. We're not saying that the movie was perfect or anything, but it was a bunch perfectly enjoyable, shameless fun that we'd definitely watch again. It was nice to see Keanu Reeves finally have a hit movie again, even if it was only a modest one.

We'll be taking a pass on Dracula Untold, Kull The Conqueror, and Ouija (our review HERE), although we shamefully admit that we didn't totally hate Ouija.

We've heard plenty of good things about The Demon's Rook, and Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard looks like it could be some solid, B-movie fun, so we'll check those out when we can.

Exists (our review HERE) was a movie that we didn't care for all that much, and we can't recommend that anyone spend their hard earned $$$ to watch it.

If you're excited to see When a Stranger Calls (the original, not the shitty remake), then you should really buy THIS BLU-RAY VERSION instead of the 2-pack listed above; it's Blu-ray, it's only $5.87, and it comes packaged with Happy Birthday to Me, which makes it a far better package to own.

Everything else here, as always, is a crap-shoot.
