Remake of the 1978 revenge classic; this time rape-ier, more sadistic and filmed on a budget higher than $100 (like, maybe $250): A woman brutally attacked by rednecks carries out vengeance that makes Saw look like Shrek. (Anchor Bay)

DVD.LifeAsWeKnowIt.jpgLife as We Know It
An unlikely couple (unlikely Josh Duhamel and Katherine Heigl) inherit a baby after the death of mutual married friends (including Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks … sigh); bickering, poop and Eventual Love ensue. (Warner Bros.)

DVD.MiddleMen.jpgMiddle Men
Based on a true-ish story: A 1990s businessman (Luke Wilson) moves hardcore porn from video stores to the new Wide World of Web and invents an industry. Great, but was this not titled The Spanking Network? (Paramount)

DVD.ParanormalActivity2.jpgParanormal Activity 2
Once again, a dumb couple moves into a demon-possessed house—they forgot the sage, but at least they brought a video camera. Then there’s some nonsense about sacrificing a first-born son, demon-on-dog violence, etc. (Paramount)

DVD.Romantics.jpgThe Romantics
The story of the Detroit new-wave band that discovered red pleather and climbed the charts with the hits “What I Like About You” and … huh? It’s another Josh Duhamel movie? With Katie Holmes? And Anna Paquin? Blech. (Paramount)
