We’re starting the new week off with a new Scream for a Week column from our own Tim Salmons, featuring new reviews of Scream Factory’s Hellhole, #Horror, and Dreamscape: Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray Disc. Do give them a look.

Also today, we have a few bits of great new title announcement news…

First up, Lionsgate has set Garth Davis’ critically accalaimed film Lion for release on Blu-ray and DVD on 3/21.  [Read on here…]

Here’s a title I’ve been looking forward to since it was revealed to be coming late last year: Amazon has just listed Funimation’s Speed Racer: The Complete Series for Blu-ray release on 5/30, and for the amazing price of just $29.98 (or $22.99 on Amazon)! The title hasn’t been officially announced yet, so these details could change, but still… very exciting. As some of you may know, 2017 is the classic Japanese anime’s 50th anniversary.

Also on the TV front today, Mill Creek Entertainment is releasing Quantum Leap: The Complete Series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on 2/7. SRP is $99.98, but Amazon is selling it for $59.99.

In addition, a company called Visual Entertainment has set Nash Bridges: The Fifth Season and Nash Bridges: The Sixth Season for Blu-ray release on 3/17, along with Nash Bridges: The Complete Series. The Third Season and The Fourth Season are due on 2/17. And The First Season and The Second Season street on Blu-ray on 1/20.

And finally, Music Box Films has set Jacques Cluzaud’s Seasons for Blu-ray and DVD release on 2/21.

That’s all for this today. Back tomorrow with more. Stay tuned...
