Most Wanted on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD This Week - October 9, 2018

The Halloween horror hits are coming up big again this week on blu-ray. Last week, we packed our shelves with such titles as the Annabelle: 2-Film Collection, The First Purge, Blood Fest, and The Spiral Staircase in addition to Kino Lorber's 1080p release of The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler (1972, 1973) which gave the show's fans and newbies alike plenty of things to dive into for.

Well, the trick or treat fun continues this week as several horror classics get 1080p releases. Shout Factory is bringing us 1999's House on Haunted Hill, a Collector's Edition of the 2007 spooktacular feature Trick 'r Treat that features a new 2K master and new interviews and tons of new features, and a steelbook release of Rick Rosenthal's Halloween II (1982). In addition, Lionsgate is filling our pumpkins with a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead. How's that for getting the Halloween season up and running?

But this week's new releases are some excellent ones as well, with several of the summer's biggest films getting blu-ray debuts. Our favorite monster family is getting the hi-def treatment this week with the release of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation on 4K blu-ray and digital. Also, Dwayne Johnson's towering thriller Skyscraper, and Jodie Foster's Hotel Artemis are getting 4K Ultra Blu-ray releases.

Also, our eyes got big upon seeing that a Planet of the Apes Collection is hitting shelves in the form of a 50 Years of Planet of the Apes -  Planet of the Apes 9-movie Collection box sets which includes all nine Planet of the Apes films including all the '60s originals, Tim Burton's take, plus the latest Planet of the Apes trilogy.

A couple of other titles getting our attention this week are the 4K Ultra HD blu-ray releases of Steven Spielberg's Hook, and the DC Universe animated movie Justice League Dark which also gets a 4K Ultra HD release.

But our Most Wanted blu-ray titles this week are:

Bo Burnam's sweet little coming-of-age tale, Eighth Grade which is getting a 1080p blu-ray release, the blu-ray debut of the ABC made-for-TV movie Bad Ronald, a spooky little movie that aired on TV back in the late '70s, and the wonky little film featuring career performances from both Joaquin Phoenix and Jonah Hill called Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot.
