Jesse, a struggling artist, and his young wife Astrid and daughter Zooey buy the house of their dreams after the price is driven down by the property’s mysterious dark past. Their lives begin to unravel when Jesse’s paintings take a satanic turn as he begins to channel the voice of the devil, and then Ray, the deranged son of the former owners, becomes obsessed with Zooey after showing up on their doorstep demanding to return home. Soon it becomes clear that Ray and Jesse are both being influenced by the same dark forces and that Jesse’s family isn't safe from Ray or from the devil himself.

Production and Technical Credits
September 27th, 2017
Transformers: The Last Knight is the biggest release of the week and it has scared away a lot of the competition, but it’s garbage and should be avoided. There are no big releases that are pick of the week contenders, but some smaller ones fit the bill, including David Lynch: The Art Life: The Criterion Collection, HYOUKA: Part Two, and Shameless: The Complete Seventh Season. All are amazing and worth checking out, but none have many extras, so it is up to the role of the dice to determine the Pick of the Week. ... And it’s HYOUKA.
August 2nd, 2017
There is no monster hit coming out this week, but that doesn’t mean there are no new DVD / Blu-rays worth picking up. In fact, there are six Pick of the Week contenders. This includes Slither: Collector's Edition, which took home the title in a close race. There are also two co-winners of the Puck of the Week for best Canadian release, Colossal on Blu-ray Combo Pack and I am the Blues on DVD.
March 17th, 2017
Beauty and the Beast scared away most of the wide-release competition and there are not many limited releases either this weekend. T2: Trainspotting is by far the biggest in terms of buzz. We also have a few like Mean Dreams, which have good reviews, but are playing on VOD. Or foreign-language films like Frantz.
