What to Watch prides itself on often offering a wide variety of material from TV seasons to On Demand exclusives to remasters of classic flicks. Not this week. All six of the New Releases that you may be drawn to in your favorite store or on your favorite service are movies, and all released in the last 18 months. But the variety within those movies is remarkable. A Best Picture winner, action flicks, a superhero, and two indie drams that waste talented casts. Pick your favorites. Here’s how we would rank ‘em.

Here is the synopsis for “A Haunted House”:
In an outrageous send up of the “Paranormal Activity” movies, “The Devil Inside” and other found-footage films, “A Haunted House” features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved into their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted.
It’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon. Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern-day ghostbusters to rid her of this unwelcome intruder. He’s determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his relationship… or his sex life.
