Welcome to another weekly preview of upcoming Blu-Ray releases! You may notice that we’ve implemented some design changes; sometimes a new look can go a long way.

Hotel Transylvania

Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Selena Gomez, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, and Andy Samberg.

Plot: Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them.

Idiot's Guide to the 'Paranormal Activity' Movies

The "Paranormal Activity" movies are credited with taking the terror out of art-directed dungeons and dilapidated bathrooms and putting it right smack dab in the middle of our bedrooms. The "Saw" series raised a white flag of surrender after "Paranormal Activity" took most of the Halloween box office dollars in 2009, bringing an end to Jigsaw's legacy and returning us to the land of lo-fi horror.

Since then, the "Paranormal" series has become something of its own "Saw"-sized franchise, with the fourth installment set to hit theaters this Friday. Somewhat unfortunately (though probably inevitably), the more this decades-spanning haunted house tale expands and explains its increasingly silly mythology, the less scary and interesting it becomes — though we have to give props to the producers for maintaining the low-budget, "found footage" aesthetic that the first film incorporated so brilliantly.

Here's a refresher on all the bumps in the night (and, sometimes,

First Two Trailers for Paranormal Activity 4 Fast-Forward the Frights

It seems like Christmas Halloween comes earlier and earlier every year. We're still neck-deep in the summer blockbuster season, but Paramount Pictures wants you to start thinking about the fall fright season, releasing two new trailers for Paranormal Activity 4, the latest installment in the wildly popular found-footage franchise that might just be the last installment if the tagline "All the activity has led to this..." is any indication.

Paranormal Activity 3 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman return to helm the fourth chapter, which has fast-forwarded in time to 2011, five years after the events in Paranormal Activity 2 (PA3 was a prequel that took place in 1988). The "activity" that led Katie (Katie Featherston) to kill her boyfriend (Micah Sloat), her sister (Sprague Grayden), and her brother-in-law (Brian Boland), and kidnap her sister's infant son, Hunter, has now appeared to have taken possession (whether literally or figuratively, we can't say) of the young boy,

Paranormal Activity 3 - Blu-ray Review

The third time is the charm? It certainly charmed the box office (so look out for a fourth) and returned much on the investment. There are some good jump scares, but maybe the formula is a bit too noticeable as well. Again, those box office numbers will negate any criticism since Paramount is laughing all the way to the bank. 2005 . Katie (Katie Featherston) delivers a box of videotapes to her sister Kristi.s (Sprauge Grayden) house. Kristi and her husband Daniel (Brian Boland) dump them in their basement. A year later their house is ransacked and the tapes are missing. Flashback to 1988 . Young Katie (Chloe Csengery) and Kristi (Jessica Tyler Brown) are living

Paranormal Activity 3 to Gross $10 Million Above Estimates?: Box Office

Paranormal Activity 3 Last weekend, people were complaining that the North American box office has been in the doldrums throughout the fall because of a dearth of original, quality movies. Proving those pundits right — as they always are — the third installment of a cheap horror franchise, with a mediocre 60% approval rating among Rotten Tomatoes' top critics, Paranormal Activity 3, has soared to the top of the box-office chart and will likely beat estimates by about $10 million. Co-directed by Catfish's Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, Paranormal Activity 3 was expected to earn around $40 million in the Us/Canada over the weekend. It'll likely take in around $50 million after pulling in $26.23 million on Friday (including $8 million from Thursday midnight screenings) as per The Hollywood Reporter. The film officially cost $5 million, but that's without marketing/distribution expenses. The previous Paranormal Activity flick, aptly titled Paranormal Activity 2, cost a reported $3m — gee,

Kevin Carr’s Weekly Report Card: October 21, 2011

This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr dresses up in a frilly lace cravat and some leather boots, grabs his sword and takes a trip to France to become a Musketeer. Unfortunately, he seems to be almost 400 years too late for those kinds of shenanigans. So he hops the English Channel to become a spy with Mi-7. Of course, no one told him that Mi-7 was actually nothing more than propaganda. So he heads back home for a good night’s sleep, and to make sure that happens, he videotapes himself throughout the house. While he doesn’t witness any paranormal activity, there are many unspeakable things that can be seen on them. Want to hear what Kevin has to say on the Fat Guys at the Movies podcast?
