This week, genre fans have an eclectic array of home entertainment titles to look forward to that feature both new and classic titles. Scream Factory and IFC Midnight have teamed up for the release of the revenge thriller Bound for Vengeance this Tuesday and for those of you Manimal fans out there (yes, I’m sure there are a few!), the entire series arrives on DVD tomorrow as well.

Several recent titles are also being released on November 10th, including Terminator: Genisys, Self/Less, and Pay the Ghost, and for those of you looking for something a bit older, we have Blu-rays of Play Misty for Me and Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. arriving on Tuesday. Additionally, Warner Bros. is dusting off a true cult classic this week, The Strangler—a film I highly recommend checking out if you’ve never seen it before.

Other notable titles being released this Tuesday include Queen of Blood, Deep Dark, Symphony in Blood Red, and Rock-n-Roll Frankenstein.
