Buy / Wait / Rent: September 2019 Blu-Ray Releases

Here are the notable new releases of September 2019. We sift through the new release heap so you don’t have to!

Welcome to Horror News Network’s Buy / Wait / Rent, a monthly article devoted to the most highly-anticipated horror releases on blu-ray. Here you will find the best home video releases of each month, along with our opinion on whether each film is a must-own on the first day of release, something you should wait to buy until it goes on sale, or something you’re better off renting for a one-time watch.


9/3/19:

BUY:

The 1988 cult classic film, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark is a must-have title for any fan of the late night horror queen, and this disc’s release date pricing is so low that a purchase is a no-brainer!

RENT:

 

Ma received some early buzz based on a powerhouse performance by the always-wonderful Octavia Spencer. The movie ran out of  critical steam by the time it hit the box office, but it still managed to earn over $45 million on a $5 million budget. All things considered, this film is a solid rental for an enjoyable movie night and collectors can decide whether to add it to their collections once the price drops a bit. Men in Black: International wasn’t as anticipated as Ma, nor was it as well-received. But that’s what rentals are for! Check it out if you’re mildly curious how this soft reboot turned out.


9/10/19:

RENT:

Before it’s release, The Dead Don’t Die seemed to have everything going for it: the award-winning Jim Jarmusch at the helm, an all-star cast including Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton and Steve Buscemi, and a zombie-fueled story that never seems to go out of style. Unfortunately, critics agreed that the film doesn’t exactly stick the landing. There’s still enough good things present to warrant a rental for fans of Jarmusch’s work and of the legendary cast.


9/24/19:

BUY:

 

Arrow Video is finally releasing a new 2K restoration of Hellbound: Hellraiser II along with a reissue of Hellraiser with matching artwork. The (more gruesome) sequel will obviously be the more popular release for fans who already have the first Arrow release of the original film, but both sets offer great transfers and the kind of quality bonus features Arrow Video is known for. These are must-have titles for Hellraiser fans!

RENT:

The Child’s Play remake could have been a complete disaster, but critic and audience reviews ended up being more mixed than completely negative. Rent this one to see if it’s your cup of tea before throwing it on the shelf with the original film.
