Summer time at the box office is amazing. From the first weekend in May until sometime in August, there is usually an average of one $100 million dollar movie released per week. This year will have at least three months in a row with at least one $100 million film. On the home market, on the other hand, summer time is crappy. This year has been particularly tiresome, as the spring wasn't a fun time at the box office. The biggest release this week is Source Code, which was only a midlevel hit. To be fair, it is one of the best-reviewed wide releases of the year. On the other hand, neither the DVD nor the Blu-ray are exactly overloaded with extras.

is the fourth low-budget horror
movie I've reviewed this weekend. That's a lot for any one genre and there's a chance burnout will occur. Then again, this is arguably the most common genre on the home market, so one of the issues each film has to deal with is the sheer amount of direct competition. Does this film have what it takes to stand out? Or will it just fade into the crowd?
