We have another busy week of Blu-ray and DVD releases to look forward to, with 20 different titles coming home on Tuesday. For those who may have missed it in theaters, Gore Verbinski’s wildly surreal tale of psychological horror, A Cure For Wellness, is coming out on both Blu-ray and DVD courtesy of 20th Century Fox. We also have several indie horror films arriving on June 6th, including The Axe Murders of the Villisca, Aaron’s Blood, Prisoner X, Let Me Make You A Martyr, and Manhattan Undying.

Fahrenheit 451, based on the classic Ray Bradbury story, is being resurrected on DVD in time for its 50th anniversary this week, and for those of you Riverdale fans out there, you might want to check out Mill Creek Entertainment's re-release (this time with digital) of Archie’s Weird Mysteries: The Complete Series.

The Axe Murders of Villisca (Scream Factory/IFC Midnight, Blu-ray & DVD)

Over a century ago, the unspeakable happened. Will history repeat itself?

On a June night in 1912, the peaceful town of Villisca suffered an unfathomable crime. Eight people (a mother, father, their four children, and two guests) were brutally murdered by an axe-wielding killer in a case that remains unsolved to this day. 104 years later, Caleb (Robert Adamson) and Denny (Jarrett Sleeper), two friends who share an interest in ghost hunting, and new girl in school Jess (Alex Frnka) sneak into the house where the infamous bloodbath occurred in hopes of recording paranormal activity. But nothing has prepared them for the supernatural force waiting to write the next chapter in the home’s bloody history.

Witness a new horror inspired by the true events that shocked a nation.

Once Larry gets wind of his prodigal son's arrival, he enlists an estranged hitman named Pope (Marilyn Manson) to put him down and maintain order.
