Not horror but the "Alien" UHD BD is well worth it.
Last night I rewatched the first three episodes of the UK series "Utopia" on BD. The BD is the two disc set of season 1 that was released with no region encoding. It wouldn't play on anything but my older Samsung BD player until I got my Sony UHD X700 where it plays nicely and upscales well to 4K. The color grading for this show is also something else. BUT, this series is even more relevant than ever especially at about 20 minutes in. How Dennis Kelly could have been so prophetic? Now where is the Amazon version which finished production last summer? Interesting that Amazon (and ITunes) have the 2013 "Utopia" episodes available in their UK stores.
And if you haven't see "Captive State" that's another movie for the times. It's available currently on Showtime if you have that. I liked it so much last fall that I got the BD of it (no UHD version but it was a 2K intermediate anyway). I also followed up by watching the movie that inspired it "Army of Shadows".
