Blu Ray Haul

Starting off with something a little different, I have set myself the target of purchasing at least 5 Blu-ray movies each month. It doesn't matter how old (or new) they are just as long as they are Blu-ray format.

This month I have managed to find 5 which I think are well worth the money I paid on them.

Here in the UK and within the town of Blackburn there is a store called CEX which supplies electronic, dvds, blu-ray, console games and much more all at reletively low prices. CEX is a franchise that has stores through the United Kingdom and I guess pretty much every major town and city has at least one of their own!

So anyway, today I popped into one of my local stores and found the following.

The Haunting in Connecticut (2009)

Directed by Peter Cornwell.

Starring Virginia Madsen, Martin Donovan, Elias Koteas and written by Adam Simon and Tim Metcalfe the story charts one family's encounter with the dark forces of the supernatural. When the Campbell family moves to upstate Connecticut, they soon learn that their charming Victorian home has a disturbing history: not only was the house a transformed funeral parlor where inconceivable acts occurred, but the owner's clairvoyant son Jonah served as a demonic messenger, providing a gateway for spiritual entities to crossover. Now terror awaits when Jonah, the boy who communicated with the dead, returns to unleash horror on the innocent and unsuspecting family.

I paid just £1.50!

The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia (2013)

Director: Tom Elkins

Starring Abigail Spencer, Chad Michael Murray, Katee Sackhoff and written by David Coggeshall we see a young family move into a historic home in Georgia, only to learn they are not the house's only inhabitants. Soon they find themselves in the presence of a secret rising from underground and threatening to bring down anyone in its path.

I paid slightly more for this that The Haunting of Connecticut, £2.50.

Shadow People (2013)

Director: Matthew Arnold

Starring Dallas Roberts, Alison Eastwood, Anne Dudek and written by Matthew Arnold and Matthew Arnold, a radio talk show host unravels a conspiracy about encounters with mysterious beings known as The Shadow People and their role in the unexplained deaths of several hundred victims in the 1980s.

I paid just £1.00 for this which is an absolute steal in my book!

The Bye Bye Man (2017)

Director: Stacy Title

Starring Douglas Smith, Lucien Laviscount, Cressida Bonas and written by Jonathan Penner and Robert Damon, three friends stumble upon the horrific origins of a mysterious figure they discover is the root cause of the evil behind unspeakable acts.

I got to admit, I didn't really rate this movie when I first saw it but as this was only £3.00 I thought it was worth it just for another viewing.

Psychoville (season one - 2009)

Starring Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Daniel Kaluuya and a whole host of other actors we have seen from other shows, Psychoville tells the tale of a group of seemingly unrelated strangers who all receive a mysterious note stating "I know what you did," which sends their lives into a downward spiral.

If you have ever watched The League of Gentlemen or Inside No.9 then you will guess what the formula for this show is. It's dark and humorous as you would expect from Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton!

Not only that, I only paid £3.00 for this.

Easily the find of the day.

So what do you think? I spent just £10.50 on 5 blu-rays.

I will be doing a blu-ray haul blog posting each month so please keep popping by to see what else I've managed to find.
