Another week of no complaints, fiends.  We’ve got 13 fresh movie releases and 4 collections.  Check out Evilspeak and Final Exam in their Blu-ray debuts.  I, Frankenstein is also coming out on just about everything.  Oh, hey: another Godzilla movie is also out this week.  On top of that there’s an additional 20 movies strewn about the Collections section.  I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s a smorgasbord of movies this week, but maybe a nice little buffet table comprised of zombies, vampires and Troma-esque  B fun.  Enjoy!
