Joey’s Home Movies For the Week of October 10th – Revisit the ‘Paranormal Activity’ Franchise

Welcome back to my Home Movies! This week, the Paranormal Activity franchise gets a completed box set for the first time ever. Considering how Halloween is on the way, it’s a very solid option today, along with some Criterion releases. Read on for more…

Joey’s Top Pick

Paranormal Activity: The Ultimate Chills Collection

Paranormal Activity: The Ultimate Chills Collection

As mentioned above, for the first time, all seven of the Paranormal Activity films are together, along with a bonus documentary. The first three movies, at the very least, are quite effective, really finding creative ways to bring the scares. If nothing else, Oren Peli kicked off one of the most unlikely blockbuster horror franchises with his initial installment. For those needing a refresher, these are the flicks that you’d get in this collection:

Paranormal Activity
Paranormal Activity 2
Paranormal Activity 3
Paranormal Activity 4
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

Arsenic and Old Lace

From The Criterion Collection: “Frank Capra adapted a hit stage play for this marvelous screwball meeting of the madcap and the macabre. On Halloween, newly married drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Cary Grant, cutting loose in a hilariously harried performance) returns home to Brooklyn, where his adorably dotty aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair, who both starred in the Broadway production) greet him with love, sweetness . . . and a grisly surprise: the corpses buried in their cellar. A bugle-playing brother (John Alexander) who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, a crazed criminal who’s a dead ringer for Boris Karloff (Raymond Massey), and a seriously slippery plastic surgeon (Peter Lorre) are among the outré oddballs populating Arsenic and Old Lace, a diabolical delight that only gets funnier as the body count rises.”


Lost Highway

From The Criterion Collection: ““We’ve met before, haven’t we?” A mesmerizing meditation on the mysterious nature of identity, Lost Highway, David Lynch’s seventh feature film, is one of the filmmaker’s most potent cinematic dreamscapes. Starring Patricia Arquette and Bill Pullman, the film expands the horizons of the medium, taking its audience on a journey through the unknown and the unknowable. As this postmodern noir detours into the realm of science fiction, it becomes apparent that the only certainty is uncertainty.”

Stay tuned for more next week…
