Rosemary’s Baby (1968)—Newly remastered on 4K Ultra HD, this iconic classic celebrates its 55th anniversary this year.

Mystery Title—Delivering even more suspense and surprise, the fifth film in the box set is a secret. The fan-favorite movie makes its 4K Ultra HD debut with the release of this collection.

It’s certainly an eclectic mix of films, and I’m super curious what that Mystery Title will end up being. Either way, if you don’t have these on 4K yet, this makes for the perfect excuse to do so.
