Blu-ray & DVD: The Digital Dread Report for 7/5

*Check out our other Release Date Pages: Blu-ray & DVD, Theatrical, VOD, TV.

Given that it’s a Holiday Week, it’s a quiet one on the Blu-ray & DVD front, but there are a few titles worth checking out. Don't worry, there are some REALLY good titles coming later in the month.

So be sure to click the pics to order yourself some flicks!


"Man’s best friend becomes his worst nightmare when a horde of bloodthirsty wild dogs descends upon a family’s farmhouse. In a remote stretch of the Australian Outback, a sheep rancher, his veterinarian wife, and their two teenage children live in bucolic isolation: until a horrifying night when a pack of fang-baring, four-legged, rabid beasts besiege their home. With no one around to help them, the family must band together to survive: or else become canine kibble. Generating a steadily mounting sense of dread, The Pack cleverly toys with genre conventions before it goes in for the kill. "

Imperfect as it may be, we enjoyed The Pack a lot more than many of our fellow Horror fiends did; it was good for a killer dog flick. Read our review below for our full thoughts on the movie.


"An anthology feature film that puts a uniquely dark and original spin on some of the most beloved holidays of all time. The film challenges our folklore, traditions and assumptions, making HOLIDAYS a celebration of horror year round. "

Holidays was the typical Horror Anthology: It had a great segment, it had a few mediocre segments, and it had a few that just didn't work for us. As with most Anthologies, this one is worth watching just to see the good parts.

It's no Southbound, but if you're craving a new Horror Anthology, it'll do in a pinch.


"Three Australian telecom tradesman find themselves trapped in a telephone exchange during the onset of a zombie apocalypse. "

As Horror Comedies go, this one looks like it's going to be an lower-budget, Aussie version of Shaun of the Dead. Now, it may not end up being as good as that classic Horror Comedy, but hey, movies like this come along and surprise us sometimes.

  • Cabin Fever was a tepid, pointless remake. I say rent it before shelling out $17.99 for it on disc. (Review HERE.)
  • The Dark Knight Trilogy is a steal at $23. Great movies, great price.
  • Term Life looks like an interesting Crime Thriller, although that wig just looks wrong on Vince Vaughn.
  • The mega-successful House of Cards is a Must Buy for fans of the show... although if you can stream it for free on Netflix, I'd probably save the $35 and spend it elsewhere.
  • And everything else, as always, is a crap-shoot.
