Trailer Park: “Paranormal Activity 2,” “Hereafter,” “The Company Men,” “Inhale,” “Kalamity”

We’re just about a week away from Halloween and the creepy movies are back in spades. I guess that watching “Paranormal Activity 2″ would be cheaper than most haunted houses.

What she can do, apparently, is throw herself a lavish party, hire a photographer, and don a pretty white wedding gown, all to mark the marriage of Chen Wei-yih to Chen Wei-yih. which, naturally, won’t actually be recognized by law. “I’m not anti-marriage,” she says. “I just hope that I can express a different idea within the bounds of a tradition.” My only question: where did she register?
