DVD & Blu-ray Releases: January 20, 2015

By: Sean Brickley

We have quite the smorgasbord of treats to offer you this week.  Of our twenty releases there are female hostages, monsters, surreal oddities, ghosts, gnomes, the apocalypse, demonic possession, weird French dramatic horror, Thanksgiving insanity and a movie that tried desperately to clutch onto the coattails of The Conjuring (and didn’t do that great of a job).  All in all there’s really something for any good, wholesome evening of family entertainment.  Pleasant viewing, fiends.

On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind.
