Paranormal Retreat 2- The Woods Witch

Review Only weeks after his father dies and his eleven-year marriage abruptly ends in divorce, James Dodson decides to go on a fly-fishing adventure with his unforgiv-ing child. His goal: to heal his wounded spirit and explain the vagaries of life and love to his seven-year-old daughter, Maggie, who can't come to terms with the sudden disruptions in her life. Together, they wander towards the spirit and lure of America's mighty rivers to find understanding within their fractured lives. Along the way, James discovers the special relationship that a father can forge with his child as it is handed down through generations of love and learning.
Hotel of the Damned

Review The fate of the world hangs in the balance in this explosive action thriller. Brace yourself for nonstop action and chilling suspense, because there's no turning back in this pulse-pounding sequel that takes you Behind Enemy Lines for another adrenaline-fueled adventure! When a team of U.S. Navy SEALs is assigned to destroy a North Korean missile site and avert a possible nuclear strike, failure is not an option. But the mission is abruptly aborted, stranding four soldiers in enemy territory. Now, in order to survive, they must defeat the rebel forces that threaten their lives, their allies and the entire free world
The Possession Experiment

Review Premise and title are the only elements this low-budget military drama shares with the 2001 Gene Hackman-Owen Wilson theatrical feature, but those seeking a dose of action won't be disappointed, despite the lack of on-screen star power. Nicholas Gonzalez (Resurrection Boulevard) and Matt Bushell star as Navy SEALs stranded in North Korea after a mission to destroy a nuclear plant is aborted; a brace of dependable character actors (including Keith David, Bruce McGill, and Glenn Morshower) debates with President Peter Coyote on the best plan of action to bring the troops home safely. Writer/producer/director James Dodson's approach may strike some as less than subtle, but he keeps the film's pace brisk and the action heavy, and yields some commendable results on what is clearly a limited budget. The DVD includes an audio commentary track by Dodson, as well as a pair of making-of featurettes and the original trailer. --Paul Gaita
