Blu-ray & DVD: The Digital Dread Report for 1/17

Zombies on a train; a girl on a train; sluts at a slumber party; kidnapped girls locked in a motel room; and a double dose of a creepy Parker Bros. board game... it's a fright-filled week on the physical media front!

Be sure to click the pics below to buy the movies, or even rent them. Or both. Or neither. It really depends on your mood, now doesn't it?

"Train to Busan is a harrowing zombie horror-thriller that follows a group of terrified passengers fighting their way through a countrywide viral outbreak, trapped on a suspicion-filled, blood-drenched bullet train ride to the Safe Zone…which may or may not still be there."

Train to Busan was one of the best movies we saw in 2016, and now that it's on Blu-ray, we can't wait to see it again. It's not loaded with a ton of Bonus Features, but it's a disc that will get repeat play around here, and so it's a on day one purchase for us.

Bonus Features:
  • Behind the Scenes
  • That's A Wrap
  • Trailer



"Ouija: A girl is mysteriously killed after recording herself playing with an ancient Ouija Board, which leads to a close group of friends to investigate this board. They later find out that some things aren't meant to be played with, especially the 'other side'

Ouija: Origin of Evil: It was never just a game. Inviting audiences again into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil tells a terrifying new tale in 1967 Los Angeles. A widowed mother and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home. When the youngest daughter is overtaken by the merciless spirit, this small family confronts unthinkable fears to save her and send her possessor back to the other side."

The first Ouija (review HERE) got an unfair rap as being a terrible movie; and Ouija: Origin of Evil (review HERE) was surprisingly one of the best movies of 2016. We'll take both of them together in one Blu-ray set any day.

Special Features:

  • Disc 1 - Ouija:
  • Digital Copy of Ouija 
  • Includes UltraViolet 
  • The Spirit Board: An Evolution
  • Adapting the Fear
  • Icon of the Unknown

  • Disc 2 - Ouija: Origin of Evil:
  • Digital Copy of Ouija: Origin of Evil 
  • Includes UltraViolet 
  • Deleted Scenes
  • The Making of Ouija: Origin of Evil
  • Home Is Where the Horror Is
  • The Girl Behind Doris
  • Feature Commentary with Director/Co-Writer/Editor Mike Flanagan

"A young woman wakes, bound and gagged in a dirty motel room filled with other young women. She's the only one that wakes up. A man takes a new job to provide for the daughter his estranged wife keeps from him. It pays well, but increasingly causes him to question his morals, especially after the "work" brings him face-to-face with this woman's predicament, and the killer who's set it all in motion."

I'm not usually one to take a chance with a blind buy, but All I Need looks like it could be a good stalk and slash effort. It's got Caitlin Stasey in it too, which helps.  

  • Scream Factory's release of the Slumber Party Massacre 2 & 3 2-pack just begs to be owned, if for nothing else but the sake of 80's Horror nostalgia. 
  • Come and Find Me looks like it might be a good Thriller. We dig Aaron Paul.
  • Stop me if you've heard this one before: The book was better. The Girl on the Train was a decent movie, and a decent adaptation, but it just felt off in many ways. Not a bad rental though.
  • With the final installment in the series due to hit theaters in 2 weeks, the Resident Evil flicks have been re-issued on Blu-ray, which I'd pass on because you know that there will be a Boxed Set of the completer series in a few months.
  • The Wolf House DVD look interesting.
  • And everything else, as always, is a crap-shoot.
