This week’s new releases are sure to give you a scare with the exciting release of Scream 4 on Blu-ray and DVD. Starring all your favorites including Neve Campbell (who turns 38 today), David Arquette and Courtney Cox, the whole gang is ready to take on a new whodunnit mystery with the next generation of ghostface killers. Check out a quick synopsis:
Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey and Gale, who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (played by Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghost Face, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.
I had the pleasure of checking out this film in theaters and its definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of the original Scream or the entire franchise. Check out some of the other new releases hitting shelves below.

“CLEAR AS DAY” – SCOTTY MCCREERY
Scotty has been well-received by the country music industry since winning Season 10 of American Idol in May 2011, as evidenced by the fact that some of the best writers in country music wrote songs specifically for this project, which can be unheard of for a new artist. Scotty’s new album is a collection of songs in the same straight-ahead country style that captured the nation’s hearts – and votes–on the show. It’s the next step in a promising career that is already breaking records.
“METALS” – FIEST
Recorded in Big Sur, California, Feist co-produced the album with longtime collaborators Chilly Gonzales and Mocky, as well as newcomer Valgeir Sigurðsson (Bjork, Bonnie “Prince” Billy) Metals will mark Feist’s celebratory return to the world stage. The album is being teased with 12 unique vignettes, each hinting at a different element of this stunningly beautiful, sublime record. Fans can follow their release on listentofeist.com.
“SIBERIA” – LIGHTS
Dubstep has led Lights away from the “perfection” of her past work. The new stuff is raw and gritty but still pop with a focus on the melodies. It’s the marriage of those two that make it really different and unlike anything I’ve ever done before.” This dirtier direction came from collaborating with Holy Fuck, a fellow Juno-winning, electronic-influenced Canadian act. Siberia’s diversity leapfrogs from the hip-shaking dance-pop of “Toes” and the arms-up anthem “Banner” to the singer-songwriter-y romantic ballad “Cactus in the Valley,” written on an acoustic guitar, and the nine- minute instrumental album closer “Day One” which sounds crafted by a rusty, lovesick robot.
