Do you feel that chill in the air? (Well, if you’re anywhere near UpcomingDiscs HQ in Florida, the answer is an emphatic “No”…but just go with me on this.) That spine-tingling feeling signals the impending arrival of Horrorcane season and our annual 31 Nights of Terror throughout October. This week’s Round Up offers a sneak peek at 31 Nights thanks to RLJE Films pulling some strings with Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (4K) and Scream Factory’s head-spinning Exorcist II: The Heretic. In slightly less spooky news, Lionsgate fends off an alien invasion with Occupation and goes back to school with The Row. Warner Bros. assembles a team of time-traveling heroes with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3, while Shout! Factory recounts Rolling Stone Magazine: Stories from the Edge.
Acorn gets in a different sort of holiday spirit with Murdoch Mysteries: Home for the Holidays, CBS/Lionsgate gets resourceful with MacGyver: Season 2, and Time Life hosts an all-star jam session with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: In Concert — Encore. Fox takes on a new case with C.B. Strike: Season 1, tries to find out if the truth is out there with The X-Files: Season 11, and gets re-acquainted with its most famous mutants thanks to The X-Men Trilogy: Evolution (4K). Finally…never tell Disney the odds for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
That’s it as far as this week’s home video releases, but we’ll also be enrolling in Night School as Universal releases its Kevin Hart/Tiffany Haddish comedy on the big screen. One last reminder before signing off for the week: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs. See ya next week!
