It’s not the most fruitful time for genre releases, but there’re a few new discs being made available during these waning weeks of July that you’re definitely going to want to add to your collection. The new Blu-ray release of Bad Moon looks amazing, and the Collector’s Edition of Return of the Living Dead is an absolute must-have this week. They’re the stars, no doubt, but hardcores may find something more to chew on.
Check out the full breakdown of horror hitting shelves this week:
A photo journalist (Michael Pare) is hiding something horrific: at night he transforms into a murderous werewolf. How can he keep his kin… sister Mariel Hemingway and nephew Mason Gamble from finding out? Shift the blame by pinning the area killings on the one household member that senses his secret, the family’s devoted German Shepherd.

A troubled teenager and his older brother reconnect, setting off a powder keg of buried secrets, paranoia and murder. Inspired by true events.
