This week on DVD/Blu-ray: Lynn Shelton's latest acclaimed ensemble comedy; a horror film that creeped out Park City earlier this year; the epic doc trilogy that came before "West of Memphis"; the third entry in the popular Spanish "[REC]" series; and an all-star film adaptation of "La Ronde."

#4. "[REC] 3: Genesis" Criticwire Page

This third entry in the popular "[REC]" found-footage horror series mixes things up by injecting a good dose of humor into the scares and doing away with the handheld aesthetic altogether once the plot gets going. In another change of pace, "Genesis" takes place at a wedding, as opposed to the infected apartment complex where the first two entries are set. The plot barely begs a description, but suffice it to say, a couple's happy day is put to the test when guests start exhibiting zombie-like symptoms. You know what happens next.

Extras: Twelve deleted scenes along with a blooper reel.


#5. "360" Criticwire Page

Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's play "La Ronde," the latest drama from acclaimed director Fernando Meirelles ("City of God," "The Constant Gardener") features a script penned by Peter Morgan ("The Queen"). With a stellar international cast that includes Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, Ben Foster, Jamel Debbouze and Moritz Bleibtreu, "360" starts in Vienna, then weaves through Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix to tell a myriad of modern day love stories.
