A handful of this week's releases came out a day early -- on the 23rd instead of the 24th -- but even so, there aren't a lot of familiar names to choose from. The picks of the week are two Blu-rays: My Bloody Valentine (Special Edition) and The Monster Squad (20th Anniversary Edition). If you don't have the tech yet for those, then read on for what you might want to put on your shopping list.
Illustrated film Godkiller releases its second episode on the 24th, and fans of classic horror won't want to miss out on the 1980 slasher Silent Scream. Japanese film lovers have a lot to pick from among Devilman, Ichi 1, and Blood: The Last Vampire (the animated version). Take a few moments to look over the rest -- there's bound to be one hidden gem among them!

10. The Mutilator (1985)
It can be argued that this film’s greatest asset is its amazing tag line (By Pick, By Sword, By Axe, Bye Bye!), but that’s doing a bit of disservice to director Buddy Cooper’s only attempt to run with the slasher big dogs.
First we’ve got one of the most preposterous killer motivations in the subgenre: a child, cleaning his father’s gun in an attempt to gleam his daddy’s affections, accidentally shoots his mother dead. Dad comes home, flips his lid and viola! Instant slasher!

Vikram K Kumar has an interesting premise for making 13B, simultaneously released in Hindi and Tamil with minor cast rejigs in the two versions. During the 2006 Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, Aiadmk promised 20 kg of free rice every month, ten sovereigns of gold for the daughter's wedding and a computer free to every eligible family if elected. Dmk countered it by saying every eligible family would also get a free TV set. As we all know, the TV won.
