The holiday shopping season is officially upon us, and that means it’s time to take a look back at the last year of Blu-ray releases to help you decide which packages will have the horror fans on your list grinning from ear-to-ear!
With the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation 3, and really cheap standalone players all Blu-ray ready, there’s never been a better time to make that jump into high definition. If you’ve been holding out, throw caution to the wind, kids! Blu is where it’s at! If you already own the DVD of your favorite flick, is there a need to replace it with a Blu-ray?

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.
So, without further ado, let’s get cooking!
