New In Theaters - October 19, 2012

 Directed by Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman for distribution by Paramount Pictures

The Plot: Yeah, like they are going to reveal this!

The Final Word: Ever since the original “Paranormal Activity” debuted back in 2007, Paramount hasn’t really that much detail about its horror franchise; including its cast. The bottom line is this is a hugely successful film series for the studio and should once again scare up some serious profits. It’s also worth noting that this time the film is directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman who are responsible for the controversial “documentary” “Catfish,” which hit theaters in 2010.

Starring: Tyler Perry, Matthew Fox, Edward Burns,
Rachel Nichols & Jean Reno
 Directed by Rob Cohen for distribution by Summit Entertainment (Liongate)

The Plot: A cat and mouse game between a detective and a serial killer quickly gets personal when the killer targets the detective’s wife.

The Final Word: Originated on screen in 1997 by Morgan Freeman in “Kiss The Girls,” the character of Alex Cross has long been a successful box office fixture. Created by noted author James Patterson, “Alex Cross,” represents the return of the cunning detective to cinemas across the country with Tyler Perry now paying the role. Perry is actually already receiving rave reviews for his performance and is rumored to be “this close” to agreeing to terms for a sequel.
