Given that this is Columbus Day here in the States, announcement news is a little bit thin today. But we do have a pair of new Blu-ray reviews for you.

Tim has posted his latest Halloween Hangover review, featuring Scream Factory’s Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight – Collector’s Edition, which arrives on Blu-ray next week (on 10/20). I’ve also posted my thoughts on Disney’s Tomorrowland, which streets on Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow. And if you check back tomorrow, I’ll have another Disney Blu-ray review featuring the Aladdin: Diamond Edition, which also hits stores tomorrow. So be sure to check back for that.  [Read on here…]
