Bluray Tuesday is back and it's the first one of December. Not much is being released this week but that's good since Black Friday shopping burned a hole in my wallet. AMC's The Walking Dead aired its mid-season finale last night and won't return till February. If you tend to get The Walking Dead withdrawals like me, you'll be glad to hear that Fear The Walking Dead is out on Bluray today. I started this spin-off but I am looking forward to watching from the beginning and binging until the end. Elijah Wood's new film Cooties finally arrives on Bluray this week, as well as Goodnight Mommy, both of which I will be picking up. I've been wanting to see both of these for a long time. Last but not least, if you are a fan of the Mondo Steelbook series the latest will be released today only on Target.com. These titles are Reservoir Dogs and Highlander, both with awesome cover art. So what will you be buying, renting or just skipping this week? Let us know in the comments and check out our Instagram page Here. We love to talk about horror and what new films are coming out. If you have recommendations on what we should review let us know. We also have some giveaways going on as well, so check us out. Until next week.

There's a sign of the apocalypse in Los Angeles, where reports of a strange flu and the disappearance of people underscore this gritty drama, a prequel to AMC's uber-popular "Walking Dead."

A widowed mother, Madison, is raising two children single-handedly, but has recently found love with Travis, who maintains a relationship with his ex-wife and resentful son while trying to become a father to Madison's children.
