Here are this week's hottest home video releases. Find them on disc, or streaming services such as iTunes, Vudu, Amazon and Google Play.

Lucy Hale, Michael Pena, Maggie Q and Jimmy O. Yang star in a horror remake of the 1977-1984 TV series. This sinister take on the material is refreshing at first, but devolves into a series of increasingly ludicrous twists that wear out the premise. Strangers gather at a seemingly magical locale that grants their deepest wishes, albeit with sinister twists. The film is out on digital platforms.

Director Guy Ritchie slips back into early-career form in this crime comedy, featuring Matthew McConaughey as a suave American drug lord who wreaks havoc in London. Silkly dialogue, brash cinematography and a twist-filled script make the film a treat. For my full review, click here. Extras include cast interviews, a reel of the best quotes and a photo gallery.

The idea of pairing Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne in a girl-power comedy had promise, but a weak script torpedoed any chance the film had at laughs. Haddish and Byrne play best friends and business partners who take on a cruel beauty industry mogul (Salma Hayek) in a zero-sum game in which the audience loses more than anyone. For my full review, click here. Extras include deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes footage.

Paramount is rolling out an eclectic selection of the studio's past hits. The first out of the gate are the 1955 Alfred Hitchcock thriller "To Catch a Thief," the 1958 Elvis Presley drama "King Creole" and the 1987 erotic thriller "Fatal Attraction." Extras include fresh interviews from those involved with the films, as well as comments from film historian Leonard Maltin.

Studios provided review screeners.
