This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: October 23, 2007

The Shining Blu-rayWhether you’ve made the choice and actually picked a side in this format war, one thing can be agreed upon by all sides—this is a good week for high-definition.

And if horror is your bag, both formats have some decent titles this week. Check the full list after the jump.
