Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Don’t worry: The characters still drop a ton of F-bombs. Troubles begin when fresh high school graduate Jesse (newcomer Andrew Jacobs) notices odd goings-on in the unit below, occupied by a woman who fellow residents believe to be a witch. That would explain the nude rituals … and the murder of Jesse’s classmate. After poking

Holy Ghost People

Dependent upon a desperate, alcoholic stranger (Brendan McCarthy, 2001 Maniacs) for a ride, she ventures to the mountaintop Church of One Accord, a less-than-idyllic commune.

Knights of Badassdom

Too bad, because it starts quite well, as ambition-less auto mechanic Joe (Ryan Kwanten, TV’s True Blood) is dumped by his too-good-for-him girlfriend. To pick Joe up out of his doldrums, his housemates and best buds (played by Dallas Buyers Club‘s Steve Zahn and Peter Dinklage of TV’s Game of Thrones) get him high and

Switched on

Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales Made not for the cathode rays but for the World Wide Web — FEARnet, to be exact — Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales gives the director of such ’80s horror classics as Child’s Play and Fright Night his own anthology series and, thus, a chance to play Cryptkeeper … or Rod Serling,
