Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones is out now here in the States and on Digital HD in UK, with a Blu-ray and DVD release set for May 12. The Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones on Blu-ray and Digital HD includes the theatrical version of the film, as well as an extended, cut, and intense additional found footage not seen in cinemas.

To celebrate the UK release, Bloody Disgusting caught up with director Christopher Landon who shared five of his favorite horror movies! I think it’s safe to say he enjoys horror from the 1970′s.

Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

“Flawless from start to finish and copied but never duplicated. I have seen this movie over 100 times and discover something new every time. The performances are amazing and the mood and atmosphere that Polanski creates is pitch-perfect.”

Halloween (1978)

“This movie is a masterclass in suspense and horror. John Carpenter is one of my heroes. And who can forget that score?”

Alice Sweet Alice (1976)

“A lesser known title directed by Alfred Sole, this movie still scares the crap out of me. I don’t know if it’s the Catholic backdrop or the mask the killer wears, but this is an underrated gem.”

Black Christmas (1974)

“While other families would watch “It’s A Wonderful Life” my family liked to curl up to this holiday treat. It was made before When A Stranger Calls and did the whole caller-in-the-house with class and style.”

George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead (1978)

“Scary, funny, culturally relevant, and just brilliant. I never thought zombies were scary until I saw this movie.”

    Not to sound like one of those losers on the internet who holds a grudge against some filmmaker for some overblown reason, but he’s a thief (Rear Window), so I don’t really care what he thinks. (The courts may have decided he didn’t steal from the short story that Rear Window was based on but he most certainly stole from the screenplay for the movie itself.)

    I think that’s pretty cool he included Alice Sweet Alice, for some reason a lot of people forget about it or maybe they’re just unaware of it’s awesomeness.

    Great list. I have yet to see Alice, Sweet Alice. I’ll get on that.
