This is the week we’ve all been waiting for—at least when it comes to new Blu-ray releases.

The pick of the week is absolutely JAWS. Steven Spielberg’s killer tale just barely edged out The Hunger Games for our spotlight. Now, we know Katniss Everdeen is a serious badass with better sequel potential, but we’ve been waiting for this great white to get a great Blu-ray debut for a long time.

Besides blood and violence, we have—well, more blood and violence. (Thanks Dexter!) There are a few other noteworthy releases for the week, though. You know, the kind that won’t have you sleeping with the lights on.

Did we miss one of your favorites for the week? Have something to say about one of this week’s new releases? Sound off in the comments below. Otherwise, all of these titles are out now, except where noted. Enjoy!
