THE POSSESSION OF HANNAH GRACE (2018): "Because it brings some twists on the demonic genre, The Possession of Hannah Grace comes with a few surprises. However, it sticks with too many of the same old jump scares to offer anything truly innovative or terrifying." Starring Shay Mitchell, Grey Damon. Sony, $30.99, 2/26/2019.
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES [4K UHD] (2011): "Rise of the Planet of the Apes turned into one of 2011ís most pleasant cinematic surprises. It helps relaunch the franchise in a terrific manner, as it mixes drama and action well." Starring James Franco, Freida Pinto. Fox, $29.99, 6/13/2017.
POETIC JUSTICE [BLU-RAY] (1993): "John Singletonís second movie, Poetic Justice fails to live up to the hopes he created with his debut. A muddled mix of melodrama and romance, the story and characters fail to make a positive impact." Starring Janet Jackson, Tupac Shakur. Sony, $19.99, 2/5/2019.
RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE [BLU-RAY] (1943): "With Bela Lugosi back as a bloodsucker, 1943ís Return of the Vampire comes with decent potential. Unfortunately, the film seems bland and forgettable." Starring Bela Lugosi, Frieda Inescort. Shout!, $27.99, 2/19/2019.
INSTANT FAMILY [BLU-RAY] (2018): "A mix of comedy and drama, Instant Family comes with good intentions. Unfortunately, it buries these beneath cheap stabs at humor and a general sense of mawkish sentimentality." Starring Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne. Paramount, $39.99, 3/5/2019.
HELL FEST [BLU-RAY] (2018): "Aspects of Hell Fest threaten to become clever and fun, but too much of the film feels like the same old. Despite a few minor innovations, the movie comes across as predictable and monotonous." Starring Amy Forsyth, Stephen Conroy. Lionsgate, $19.99, 1/8/2019.
