In announcement news today, Scream Factory has set Carnage Park for Blu-ray and DVD release on 11/1, with Intruder set to follow on both formats on 11/22.

Kino Lorber Studio Classics has Mickey Spillane’s I, The Jury (1982) and Bad Girl (1931) coming on Blu-ray on 11/8. The House on 92nd Street (1945) follows on Blu-ray on 11/15.

The Warner Archive is working on a forthcoming Blu-ray release of The Originals: The Complete Third Season, and they’ve set Lucifer: The Complete First Season for Blu-ray release on 8/23.

In U.K. Blu-ray news, Arrow Video has set The Initiation for Blu-ray/DVD Combo release on 11/7, followed by Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf on Blu-ray/DVD Combo on 11/14, To Live and Die in L.A. on Blu-ray/DVD Combo on 11/21, and The Driller Killer on Blu-ray/DVD Combo on 11/28 in regular and Limited Edition Steelbook packaging.

And that’s about all she wrote for this week, except I assume you all saw the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer that debuted last night. If not, here it is...

Be sure to check back on Monday for more Blu-ray and 4K reviews, news, and lots more. Have a great weekend!
