Apprentice to Murder (1988) Blu Ray (Arrow)

An adolescent Chad Lowe becomes enraptured by Donald Sutherland's Pow-wow faith healer in this interesting, if flawed, hard-to-pigeonhole period horror drama. Mia Sara also stars as Lowe's smart, seductive girlfriend.

Strangled (2016) dir: Árpád Sopsits Blu Ray & DVD (Eureka!)
