|Sinister. Just one of the movies you should watch Sunday in our Halloween Scary Sunday...|
Now, unless it's the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve, it's really hard to find four Oscar-worthy movies from one genre on any given day in the cinema. And today ain't no exception! You thought I was gonna go the other way on that one, didn't cha? The reviews are all over the board for these films. But, have some spirit - so to speak - and embrace the movie marathon for what it is. A bucket o' popcorn-backed Halloween extravaganza...
All the films are showing at Atlantic Station's Regal Cinema. So, you can watch, then shop, then watch, then have a drink, then watch, then... You get the idea.
Start out with Paranormal Activity 4 at 12:10p. This is the 4th in the series, and most agree the premise is getting a little tired. But, if you haven't ever been on the receiving end of the shadowy figure in the mirror, this is a great way to start the marathon.

Next, try out Silent Hill: Revelation - 3D at 3:10p. Silent Hill is a video game adaptation. In it, Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) and her father (Sean Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn't fully understand. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she's not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever. Oooooooo!!

Next, take a little cartoon interlude with Hotel Transylvania. It's on at 4:55p. Here's the synopsis:
"Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula's (Adam Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of the world's most famous monsters--Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more--to celebrate his daughter Mavis's 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem--but

Finally, finish things up with Sinister. From the producer of the Paranormal Activity films and the writer-director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister stars Ethan Hawke. He plays a true crime novelist who discovers a box of mysterious, disturbing home movies that plunge his family into a nightmarish experience of supernatural horror. It's on at 9:45p at Atlantic Station Regal Cinemas.

Today's full day plan can take up to about 7 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta. The 7 miles equates to about 6 pounds of carbon dioxide, or the carbon sequestered by about 1 sq feet of forest. Calculations are based on the U.S. EPA's green house gas equivalencies calculator.
7 miles of driving
6 pounds of carbon dioxide
1 square feet of forest would be required to sequester this carbon.
