Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

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.

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
