I am happy to report that Movies this week include Tremors 5: Bloodlines, returning Burt Gummers to the universe of Perfection, where the usual high-tension comedy ensues. In the same vein, Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, a movie that couldn’t have been even slightly serious at any point in its production path, is also coming out. There are also the usual collection of old horror films being re-released in the hopes that they will get some new sales as we roll up on Halloween. What may be the final film released from Studio Ghibli, When Marnie Was There, is also being released this week. Finally I need to mention a documentary, AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda.

TV gives us Reign: Season 2, taking place just following the plague, when survivors guilt was sweeping Europe. Also this week, the miniseries Tut starring Ben Kingsley. Because it is October we get Penny Dreadful: Season 2, the Showtime series with a Horror edge to it, and Leftovers: Season 1, about the people left behind.

Anime has Brynhildr in the Darkness: Complete Collection, a dark tale about a girl who believed in Aliens and then supposedly died but later returned as one of an army of human weapons. The World is Still Beautiful: Complete Collection is a fantasy about royalty with supernatural powers marrying for reasons of state. The fourth princess of Rain lost a game with her sisters to determine who would marry the King of Sun, and when she meets him neither is what the other is expecting.

Returning series this week include Fairy Tail: Part 17 bringing episodes 188 through 199, and The Last: Naruto the Movie. In addition, Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero is being released in a S.A.V.E. edition.
