This week’s list was brought to you by the Count from Sesame Street, who hopes that you can count to three… because that’s all we’ve got for you this week, fiends. At least we get a Vincent Price movie on Blu-ray, right? Pleasant viewing, fellow gore whores.

Ghost Story The Turn of the Screw (2015)
Michelle Dockery, Sue Johnston, Dan Stevens, Mark Umbers, Nicola Walker
Downton Abbey stars Michelle Dockery, Sue Johnston, and Dan Stevens lead the cast in this sinister tale of unspoken horror and psychological terrors. Henry James’s gripping ghost story, The Turn of the Screw, is vividly brought to life in this ethereal adaptation from the BBC. Ann, an inexperienced governess, looks after two young orphans in a seemingly quaint country home. But brother and sister Miles and Flora carry secrets. Soon, the home is filled with supernatural apparitions. In a haunting tale of suspense and murder, the ghosts relentlessly pursue those who believe in them – and curse those who do not. Anyone who says there’s nothing to fear has never lived here.
Rory J. Saper, Christina Jastrzembska, Kelly Rowan, Merritt Patterson
