420: Do nothing this holiday with the help of these fun films

Celebrate 420 with chill, low-key films that steer clear of obvious stoner flicks.

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. The snake-handling, God-fearing families who live and worship there are as tight-lipped about Sis’ whereabouts as they are cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs — metaphorically speaking, of course.

No Holds Barred

Confession of Murder

Du-sok can do this without worry of imprisonment because, unlike these United States, the statute of limitations has run out. He’s a free man even after taking credit for most heinous deeds. Naturally, that irritates the case’s lead detective, Lt. Choi (Jung Jae-Young), whose run-in with the killer a decade ago left the policeman with

Iron Sky: Director’s Cut

The Nazis mistake the landing as a prelude to an invasion, so the Third Reich prepares to strike the earth before the earth can strike it. Iron Sky has all the makings of a big batch of poor taste. Instead, it’s an inspired goof of a spoof that bridges the worlds of highbrow and lowbrow
