Hey, everyone! We’re back with a brand new installment of our horror and sci-fi home media recap, and if you’re looking to check out some fun stuff this upcoming Memorial Day weekend, maybe this week’s releases can help keep you entertained. If you haven’t had a chance to check them out yet, both Umma featuring Sandra Oh and Matt Reeves’ The Batman arrive on Tuesday via a variety of formats. Both Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce and James Wan’s Malignant are getting the 4K format treatment this week, and somehow I missed the fact that there was a RoboCop TV series at some point, but that’s being released on both Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday. And on a bittersweet note, the Foo Fighters’ Studio 666 is making its home entertainment debut this week as well.

Other Blu-ray and DVD releases for May 24th include #FromJennifer, Horror High, Moon of the Blood Beast, Feeders 3, and City of Rott: Otherworld.

The Batman (4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray/Digital, Blu-ray/Digital & DVD)

A killer targets Gotham’s elite, sending The Batman on an investigation. As evidence mounts, he must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit and bring justice amidst corruption.

Lifeforce: Collector’s Edition 4K (Scream Factory, 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray)

A mission to investigate Halley's Comet discovers an even stranger phenomenon: an alien spacecraft! Following a deadly confrontation, the aliens arrive on Earth, where their seductive leader begins a terrifying campaign to drain the lifeforce of everyone she encounters. Her victims, in turn, continue the cycle, and soon the entire planet is in mortal danger. And when the mission's sole survivor (Steve Railsback, The Stunt Man) sets out to destroy her, he comes face to face with the most charming—and horrifying—being he's ever known. Will he be able to destroy the lovely vampiress…or will he become yet another victim of her fatal charm?
