DVD RACK: Paranormal Activity, United States Of Tara: The First Season

Here’s the “Just in case you missed them” edition of the DVD Rack this week. Their December 29 th releases date may have gotten them lost in the Holiday shuffle –BUT FEAR NOT! We shed some light on the creepy-scary Paranormal Activity (the trailer alone messed me up!) and one of our favourite new shows of the year, United States of Tara: The First Season.

United States Of Tara: The First Season Standard DVD

Tara Gregson is a wife and mother with dissociative identity disorder (DID). After deciding to take a break from her medication to discover the real cause of her disorder, her alternate personalties re-emerge: wild and flirty teenager T; old-fashioned housewife Alice; and male, loud, beer-drinking Vietnam vet Buck. Tara is supported by her calm and level-headed husband Max, her somewhat troubled teenage daughter Kate and quirky, good-hearted gay son Marshall. Her sister, Charmaine, is not so supportive, often expressing her doubt about the validity of Tara’s disorder. The show is set in Overland Park, Kansas. $34.99 @BEST BUY.

Paranormal Activity Standard DVD

You demanded it and now the surprise hit critics call “one of the scariest movies of all time”* can be experienced in the most terrifying place of all…your home. After a young, middle-class couple moves into what seems like a typical suburban house, they become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be demonic but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. Especially while they sleep. Paranormal Activity builds suspense all the way to the shocking ending. Roger Ebert calls it “truly scary.”** Go ahead, we dare you to watch it at home…at least you can leave the lights on. * bloody-disgusting.com ** Roger Ebert, rogerebert.com, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES. $23.99 @BEST BUY.
