New on DVD: 'Contraband' and 'The Innkeepers,' Which You Can Win!

The Innkeepers Director Ti West is making a name for himself in the horror genre thanks to the creepy, '80s-retro The House of the Devil and now this film, which stars Sara Paxton and Pat Healy as two slacker types who run the front desk of an inn about to close after decades of housing guests in a Connecticut burg. They're aimless, bored, and with nothing else to do, decide to go ghost-hunting in the supposedly haunted hotel. What's almost scarier than the suicidal bride they're looking for, though, is being 25 in a podunk town with no future ahead of them, and ending up like any number of the living guests in the place--a mother needing to get away, a yammering coffee barista, an old widower. Like Devil, Innkeepers moves slow, which may frustrate horror fans who like the jumps and jolts of Paranormal Activity and the like or the gore of the Saw movies. But if you liked the slow-burn style of House of the Devil, you'll like this one too. Extras: Behind the scenes featurette, commentary with the director and stars (DVD/BD)

Contraband Your usual "one last heist" picture starring Mark Wahlberg this time as a onetime drug smuggler unwillingly lured back for a final job when his brother in law lands in hot water with some bad guys. It's based on the Icelandic thriller Reykjavik-Rotterdam, and was helmed by that movie's director, who manages to keep up the suspense even though it's a story we've seen many times before. Extras: Deleted scenes, featurettes on the making-of and the stunts, and director commentary (DVD/BD)
