Graveyard Shift Blu-ray: "A creepy combination of Stephen King and underground terror comes to life in 1990’s horror show GRAVEYARD SHIFT, clocking in on Blu-ray for the first time in North America.

When an abandoned textile mill is reopened, several employees meet mysterious deaths. The link between the killings is the hour: all occurred between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. – the Graveyard Shift. The sadistic mill foreman has chosen a group to clean up the mill’s rat-infested basement. But what the workers find is a subterranean maze of tunnels leading to the cemetery – and an unimaginable horror that comes alive in the dead of night…

A tattoo artist (Bruce Dern, The Hateful Eight) kidnaps a model who has become his obsession. Maud Adams (Octopussy) gives a riveting performance as the woman of his evil desires … and the canvas for his full-bodied, ink-laden art. Director Bob Brooks (Space: 1999) combines eroticism, sexuality and love to make Tattoo one of the most suspenseful thrillers ever filmed.

The Tenant Blu-ray: "1976’s eerie psychological thriller THE TENANT is coming to Blu-ray for the first time in North America.

Roman Polanski stars as Trelkovsky, a quiet, timid file clerk increasingly overshadowed with dread and fear after he moves into his new apartment. Adding to his paranoia are the building's other occupants, who do nothing to alleviate his growing obsession with the untimely, tragic fate of the apartment's previous tenant. Is Trelkovsky's dread truly justified – or is it simply the result of his seemingly disintegrating mental state? A brilliant international cast – Isabelle Adjani, Melvyn Douglas, Jo Van Fleet, Bernard Fresson and Shelley Winters – and Polanski's own penchant for delivering unprecedented suspense (Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown) make The Tenant a haunting experience.

Street date: 7/28. Extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date. Pre-order now @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/product/the-tenant…"
