Uncle Creepy’s Blu Christmas Buyers Guide 2012!

Post Thumb:


It’s that time of year again, kids. The holiday season is right around the corner, and we’ve compiled our yearly list of the best and worst Blu-rays of the year. Being that you can score a player for way less than 100 bucks now, there’s little reason not to upgrade. Read on to find out where the smart money is!

There’s no doubt Blu-ray players will once again be a pretty hot item this year, but what of the movies available for them? If you already own the DVD of your favorite flick, is there a need to replace it with a Blu-ray? I’m here to answer all of your questions in the fourth annual…

Uncle Creepy's Blu Christmas Buyers Guide 2012!

Before we get into our picks (most of which are also available in new DVD versions; see review for information), let’s take a second to explain once again how we rated them. They’re broken down into three categories:

Can’t Miss — Must Haves: These are the cream of the crop! The purchases that are guaranteed to bring a smile to someone’s face. Items no one with the tech should be without.

Good Buys: A rock-solid purchase. Sure, there’s nothing really to die for about these Blu-rays, but be confident in the fact that you’re spending your cash on the goods that you’re hoping for.

Serious Hi-Def Junkies Only: Here’s where things get a bit sketchy. These Blu-rays were included for a few reasons — Either the movies suck, the transfer and sound aren’t up to snuff, or the included supplemental materials (or lack thereof) don’t do much to keep these ships afloat.

Click on any of the reviews listed below to find out exactly what you’re getting and to find the link with which to order them. I’ve also included at the very end a few other recommendations that either came in too late to be reviewed or are not quite horror films but we love ’em anyway.

Please Note: This article will continue to be updated throughout the holidays as more stuff comes out so check back often!

Let the games begin!

      Silent night remake and Silent night deadly Night rerelease double feature dvd out on dec 4th are also must buys

    • Fearless_Froude

      Jesus christ, i was waiting for The Devil Inside blu ray to be on Uncle Creepy’s must buy list, Piranha 3DD and Darkest hour….the raven? for serious High Deff buyers? More like for people who like seriously Shit in their collection.

      • Uncle Creepy

        If you read the description of the SERIOUS HIGH DEF JUNKIES ONLY category you’ll see that that’s more or less where the pure crap ends up.

        • Fearless_Froude

          True True. Some people gotta have everything

    • Terminal

      The Human Centipede 2? Not even if they were GIVING it away with hundred dollar bills would I even bother putting it near my collection. No way in hell.

      • Uncle Creepy

        I’ll take anything stuffed with 100s.

    • Foywonder

      There seems to be a major mistake because I see Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and The Human Centipede 2 listed under “Good Buys”.

      • Uncle Creepy

        Had to go by the Blu-ray reviews which were positive.
