There's plenty of thrills and chills on the DVD shelf this week. Heading the list is the latest outing from the one-man wrecking crew that is Jason Statham, who stars in 'The Mechanic' as an elite assassin who has to take on his former bad guy boss to avenge the death of his mentor. Then there's 'The Rite,' which stars Anthony Hopkins and Colin O'Donoghue in a moderately scary tale of a young priest who travels to the Vatican to become a modern-day exorcist, but he gets more than he bargained for when he teams up with a village priest to drive the devil out of a pregnant woman. This one is based on real-life characters and events. Read on.
