    Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

    ★★½

    I knew what I was getting into with this PA flick.

    I was properly creeped out although some of the EFX were a little hokey. I think if the ghost/demon was more corporeal that this would have been even creepier.

    Acting was ok. Story used past PA movies, which I barely remembered so that didn't help me too much. Story was a tad to goofy at times.

    The characters reactions were not what I would have thought which brought this…

    Haunters: The Art of the Scare

    ★★★½

    A documentary that features a handful of haunted houses from the normal to the extreme.

    I wasn't aware of the extreme nature of some of the houses. Some these feature actual torture (not simulated). Crazy.

    I enjoyed the more traditional with extreme makeup and unique and creative scare EFX.

    Worth a watch but there was a tad too much focus on the extreme stuff which will disturb a lot of people. Although regular watchers of Toe Tag Picture films may enjoy. :-)

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

    ★★★★

    This remake actually works. I was prepared to dislike it as I really enjoyed the original with Noomi Rapace, but Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig did an amazing job. Loaded with some great actors this version did a very nice job of pacing. A brutal thriller, that has some very graphic elements attached to it. I loved the Bryan Ferry song that ran at the end of the credits, "Is Your Love Strong Enough". I originally heard that in Legend and it is a fantastic song.

    The Babysitter

    ★★★★

    A fun horror comedy that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Judah Lewis plays a 14 year that still needs a babysitter mostly due to his low self-esteem. But when the babysitter is introduced, Samara Weaving, I don't think anyone under 120 years old would not want her watching over them.

    Judah's friend, Emily Alyn Lind, tells Judah to sneak out and see what the babysitter does once he is supposed to be in bed.

    Well the cast of hotties playing spin the…
