However, I have compiled my list of 45 top releases on Blu-ray and DVD for this year past. There were thousands of releases this year and it was very hard to keep up. Companies like Shout Factory really had a high number of genre releases and leads the pack by far with the most entries in my survey this year.
You may be surprised by some of my choices again this year, but I hope you find it interesting over the next five weeks. This weeks will be the shortest with only five listing.
45. FORT YUMA GOLD.DAMNED HOT DAY OF FIRE 1966/1968 (Mill Creek) This Blu-ray double feature of Spaghetti westerns was a very entertaining release and a must for western fans.
44. THE BUSHWACKER/THE RAVAGER 1968/1970 (Mondo Macabro) Blu-ray... Very odd released of two obscure films. This was a fun release and a surprise to boot. If you're looking for something very off the wall this was the release for you. Lots of bondage, bad gore effects and so much more. They don't make them like this anymore....sadly.
43. OUTLAWS AND CON MEN (Mill Creek) DVD...Another good group of westerns from Mill Creek. This set consists of Django Shoots First, Django's Cut Price Corpses, Bad Man's River and the weakest entry is Sting Of The West with Jack Palance. However, it's a good collection and should be appreciated by fans.
42. BYLETH: THE DEMON OF INCEST 1972 (Severin) Blu-ray... Mark Damon stars in this twisted piece of Euro horror. If I recall this made my list last year from Sinister Cinema as well. Good little film.
41. THE WITCHES 1966 (Kino) Blu-ray... Hammer horror starring Joan Fontaine as a woman haunted by an African voodoo tribe. Well made and gripping horror that was a very welcome release in 2019.
Ok, that's it for this week. Next Saturday there will be the usual 10 entries and it will continue thru the first Saturday of 2020.
