DVD and Blu-ray Releases: December 27, 2016

Now that everyone is recovering from the Christmas weekend, we’ve got 10 releases dropping! Our one discrepancy for the week is The Warning. It may have had a similar release back in August, and it is also showing up for this week for December 31st. Your guess is as good as mine in that regard.

We have two classics coming at us from the 1970s. The first is 1974’s The Beast and the Vixens on DVD. The second release, from 1970, is the Blu-ray for The House That Screamed.

Also hitting shelves this week are new Blu-rays for each of the four Underworld movies. If I were a betting man, I would imagine that this is being timed to coincide with the upcoming release of Underworld: Blood Wars, which will be coming to theaters on January 6th in the United States.

Keep checking back each week for the most up-to-date horror movie release list on the internet and beyond. As always, pleasant viewing.
