Below, we've listed 10 or so of the best Movies & TV Shows that are seeing Theatrical, Blu-ray & DVD, VOD, or TV releases this May; they're the biggest and (potentially) best of them, and at the very least, they are the ones that we're most excited to check out.
*Click the pics below for more info on the Movie or TV Show, or pre-order them when applicable.
|PENNY DREADFUL (MAY 1ST, SHOWTIME)|
One of the best shows on TV is back on May 1st, and if you have yet to catch this superb Gothic Horror story, then you're missing out. Seriously, it's excellent, so get with it!
|THE WITCH (MAY 3RD, VOD)|
The Witch currently sits at 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, and at a healthy 7.1 on IMDB, which is to say that it was a hit with both critic and audiences alike. It certainly is one of our favorite movies of the year so far, and it's one that we can't wait to revisit when it hits VOD and Blu-ray (below.) We need some more Black Phillip in our lives!
|BITE (MAY 6TH, VOD/LIMITED)|
We're always up for a good Body Horror movie around here (thanks, Cronenberg), and Bite looks like it certainly fits that bill. Reviews for the movie were mostly positive when it made the Festival rounds last year, and after seeing the trailer, we can see why.
|CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (MAY 6TH, WIDE)|
The debut of Black Panther and Spider-Man. Nuff' said.
|WHAT WE BECOME (MAY 13TH, VOD)|
This little Apocalyptic infected/zombie flick out of Denmark has been on our radar for quite some time now, and we're pleased as punch that we'll finally be able to check it out. We're not expecting What We Become to change the genre or anything, but it sure looks like it's going to give us enough thrills to keep us entertained... and hopefully, reasonably terrified as well.
|THE DARKNESS (MAY 13TH, WIDE)|
10 years ago, Aussie director Greg McLean gave us a modern day classic with Wolf Creek. With Darkness, McLean steps into the Supernatural realm to deliver the thrills, and with a cast like Kevin Bacon, Radha Mitchell, and Jennifer Morrison at his disposal, we're all kinds of excited to see how this one turns out.
|DEADPOOL (MAY 10TH, BLU-RAY)|
This vulgar Superhero flick made us laugh our asses off from start to finish, which probably tells you a lot about us. Then again, we never really claimed to be all that classy or highbrow to begin with, now did we?
We loved it, and if you haven't yet had the chance to see Ryan Reynolds in the role that he was born to play, now is the time. On Blu-ray.
|THE WITCH (MAY 17TH, BLU-RAY)|
|THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR (MAY 24TH, VOD)|
Another movie that looks like a generic Supernatural Thriller, but that also boasts a really solid cast, is The Other Side of the Door. The trailer reminds us a lot of lat year's Out of the Dark for some reason, but let's hope that this one ends up having a little more bite to it.
|MANHUNTER (MAY 24TH, BLU-RAY)|
Manhunter has always been one of our favorite movies (we love Michael Mann), and we've been dying for it to be available in a Blu-ray version that does it justice... and now thanks to Scream Factory, it's finally happening!
