Jennifer's Body
Written by Diablo Cody and directed by Karyn Kusama, Jennifer's Body is a horror movie for people who don't like horror movies, dawdling and teasing and never really coming to grips with whatever it is it's supposed to be about. Amanda Seyfried easily walks away with the picture from ostensible star Megan Fox. But it's worth watching for the discussions it will provoke. Available in both theatrical and extended versions. Rent it. Also on Blu-ray. Diablo fans can also pick up her premium cable TV series, United States of Tara: Season One.

Paranormal Activity
Ten years after The Blair Witch Project, another 'fake reality' scare show connects with jaded audiences. The simplicity of the set-up by director Oren Peli and the warmth of the married couple -- fighting a bit, loving a bit, pushing each other a bit -- adds to the creepy atmosphere. Rent it. Also on Blu-ray. See Collector's Corner after the jump for another edition.

This is the one without singing and dancing. Shane Acker's animated tale of a nightmarish future got lost in the busy autumn release shuffle, but should find a more receptive audience on home video. As our own William Goss observed, the expansion from Acker's beautiful short film into a feature-length film results in some 'over-explanation,' but animation fans should go nuts. Rent it. Also on Blu-ray.
