As we gear up for 2015, we’ve got another light week of home entertainment releases. Kevin Smith’s oddball horror/comedy Tusk makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut on Tuesday, as well as the horror thriller A Good Marriage, based on the Stephen King story Full Dark, No Stars.

Several indie horror films are also getting released this week and the classic Peter Cushing film The Hound of the Baskervilles is getting a high-def upgrade on Blu-ray too.


Stephen King’s A Good Marriage (Screen Media, DVD)

Darcy and Bob have just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary with family and friends. The couple is praised for having what is, by all indications, is a good marriage. But Darcy is about to discover her marriage is anything but ideal. Local newscasts are reporting the brutal death of a young woman. The police visit Darcy and Bob's home. Darcy begins to do some digging on her own, and the evidence she uncovers leads her to a terrifying conclusion. Her husband is the killer. Now that she knows the secret, Darcy must try not to become her husband's next victim.

Tusk (Lionsgate, Blu/Digital HD & DVD/Digital)

From writer/director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Mallrats) comes this wickedly funny modern-day monster movie that will hold you in terror as it keeps you in stitches. The highly anticipated film Tusk arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) December 30th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Starring Michael Parks (Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Django Unchained), Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), Haley Joel Osment (Amazon’s “Alpha House,” The Sixth Sense) and Genesis Rodriguez (Identity Thief, Hours), Tusk is being called “Kevin Smith’s very best work” (Variety). Tusk premiered to the world at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival as a part of the Midnight Madness program and was released theatrically by A24.

A podcaster (Long) looking for a juicy story is plunged into an unpredictable, unsettling and absurd nightmare after he travels to the backwoods of Canada to meet an eccentric recluse (Parks) with a lifetime of adventures-and a disturbing fondness for walruses.

The Tusk Blu-ray and DVD include deleted scenes, multiple “making of” featurettes, a career retrospective featurette with Kevin Smith, an audio commentary with Kevin Smith plus the original podcast that inspired the film. The Tusk Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
