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

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. And now, on to the notable new releases of March 2019!



The Clovehitch Killer earned tremendous buzz during its very limited theatrical release, and it was available for digital rental for a few weeks before quickly disappearing from the web. The new blu-ray release looks like it will only cost a buck or two more than a digital purchase, so I say take a chance on this one and buy it at its attractive release date pricing. Worse comes to worse, you can sell it if you don’t like it and recoup most of your investment. But something tells me that if you like suspenseful killer thrillers, this disc wont be leaving your shelf any time soon!



Calling all 90’s kids: The Craft is back, and it’s been remastered by Shout! Factory! The only problem is the pre-order incentive poster is sold out and the cover art isn’t interesting enough to warrant a first day purchase in order to guarantee the slipcover which only comes with the first printing. This title will be available during one of Shout!’s legendary sales, and I suggest everyone but hardcore The Craft fans conjure up some patience when it comes to this release.



Mary Lambert’s 1989 take on Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is coming to the 4k UHD format this month, and there’s a special edition Steelbook based on incredible Mondo artwork. Between the promise of higher resolution and HDR and the lovely, lovely limited release case, this one is a must buy for even a casual fan of the film!

John has loved movie monsters for as far back as he can remember. He's since collected up as many comics, statues, and autographed material related to movies and music that he can get his hands on. He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer. One of his largest works on the topic is a study on the portrayals of people with disabilities in horror films.
