Homegrown horror leads the final FOXLight DVD release round-up of 2009. Taking the "Blair Witch" approach, the low-budget Paranormal Activity built its box office strictly by word of mouth, and follows a young couple in a new suburban sprawl that might have an occult-ish occupant.
Humanity is wiped out and only nine post-apocalyptic creatures and some fearsome machines remain, in 9. Not to be confused with the current movie musical, this 9 is computer animated with the voices of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly and Christopher Plummer.
Megan Fox, no relation, is a demonically possessed cheerleader feeding off the boys in her Minnesota town in Jennifer's Body, written by Juno creator Diablo Cody who claimed The Lost Boys as her inspiration.
