Blu-Ray/DVD Releases: April 2, 2013

This week is rather uninspiring, except for the release of future cult classic John Dies at the End, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One box-set. Don Coscarelli adapted the sci-fi/horror/comedy from a web-serial turned novel by editor, Jason Pargin (David Wong). I was lucky enough to have caught a screening a while back, and it is a rather unique film. Definitely a must see, if you're looking for a change of pace. Head inside for more details on these releases.
