Sorcerer

William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Welcome to the coastal resort of Broadchurch, population … oh, who can keep track, what will all the corpses? Yes, Broadchurch is yet another British television procedural involving the search for a murderer in a quaint little town, just like the limited series The Fall and Top of the Lake.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

No Holds Barred

RLJ Entertainment's new Blu-ray for No Holds Barred begins with what seems like dozens of trailers for movies starring pro wrestlers from the WWE talent pool. Each flick went direct to home video, but once upon a time — aka 1989 — one had to go to the multiplex to catch such a spectacle.

Reviewer's grade: B+

Angela Vidal (Jennifer Carpenter) is one of those annoying local TV personalities who gets the human interest stories but is too cute and perky to be trusted with anything important. She and her cameraman Scott (Steve Harris) are shooting a piece on the life of a fire fighter. She follows Jake (Jay Hernandez) and his partner around the firehouse hoping that a call will come in so she can inject some excitement into the story. A call comes in. An elderly lady in a small apartment hotel is wailing in her room but won't answer the door. When the firefighters and a pair of L.A. cops break into her apartment, they find her covered with blood and happy to see them only because they are walking meat pies.

Director John Erick Dowdle takes his time getting started. When hell breaks loose, it breaks loose at the gallop. These rabid-cannibal-zombies are quick and deadly. If you're looking for just the thing to get you into the Halloween mood, here it is. R
