DVD and Blu-ray Releases: December 15, 2015

Well, we’ve had a few slow weeks recently, but hopefully this week’s list has something good for all of you. There are 21 releases coming out so let’s get right to it.

Last week, there was a discrepancy over when 1971’s Count Dracula was being released, so I’ve included it again this week. Be on the lookout for that. As a matter of fact, there are quite a few classics coming out this week. We’ve got Zombie High, The Car, Blood Rage and The Last Horror Film. That’s not all of them, either. Check below for more.

MTV fans will be happy to know that “Teen Wolf” Season 5, Part 1 will be available this week.  I can’t say that I know much about that show, but it must be doing all right if it’s hit its 5th season.

My personal favorite pick of the week has to be the Toxic Avenger Collection. I’ve been a fan of those movies since I was a kid so having them all in one place, on Blu-ray for that matter, is awesome to me.

I don’t want to give everything away, so please keep reading below; and as always, pleasant viewing, friends.
