DVD and Blu-ray Releases: August 15, 2017

We have kind of a short list for you this week, my friends. Essentially this week revolves around two things: the Alien franchise and movies by Stephen King.

Specialty collectors should take note of all of the special editions of Alien: Covenant. Apparently Walmart is also in on the limited edition game with this movie, but I couldn’t find working links so I presented what I have.

Additionally, you can also pickup a Blu-ray of Prometheus this week along with the entire Alien 6 Film Collection. In a nutshell, if you are a fan of Alien, this is your week.

If Alien isn’t your thing, there’s also a good handful of Stephen King titles releasing this week. This list includes both Pet Sematary movies, Graveyard Shift, and The Dead Zone.

And if you don’t like Stephen King OR the Alien movies, you can check out Tom McLoughlin’s classic One Dark Night, which will be getting the DVD and Blu-ray treatment this week. You can also be on the lookout for The Scarehouse.

Whatever your preference is, pleasant viewing.
