by at . Comments

Three darker tales about completely different subjects out this week on Blu-Ray/DVD.  A crazy rommmate, a hitman, and an exorcism on the menu today.

The Roommate: Two fashion and arts students at college, Sara (Minka Kelly) and Rebecca (Leighton Meister) end up rooming together.  However, Sara soon discovers there's something very off about Rebecca.  DVD extras include commentary and an alternate opening scene.

The Rite: The Rite stars Anthony Hopkins, Alice Braga and Rutger Hauer.  The film, apparently inspired by true events, tells the story of a seminary student who is tasked to attend exorcism school and meets an unorthodox priest who teaches him about the darker side of his faith.  DVD extras include deleted scene.

One more title when you continue reading.

The MechanicThe Mechanic, directed by Simon West, follows a skilled "mechanic", aka a hitman (Stratham), who teaches a young apprentice (Foster) the skills of his trade out of loyalty to his murdered mentor. The catch - the young appretice is the murdered man's son who wants vengeance for the death of his father.   It's a remake of the 1972 film of the same name starring Charles Bronson. The DVD extras include deleted scenes and a featurette.
