The following is from the DVD description:

"An all-new descent into terror from the director and star of 'Hatchet.'

Joel David Moore stars with Zachary Levi ('Chuck') and Amber Tamblyn ('Joan of Arcadia' and 'The Grudge 2') in the harrowing story of a shy and possibly disturbed telemarketer/painter, his arrogant longtime friend and boss, and the carefree new co-worker whose love may offer a portrait of normalcy. But in a life scarred by dark secrets, can the truth be the most horrifying pose of all? Tricia Helfer of 'Battlestar Gallactica' co-stars in this acclaimed psychological shocker co-directed by Adam Green and Moore that FrightFest hailed as almost unbearably tense...a Hitchcock-tail of precision direction and startling imagery packing a final shock punch!"

"Spiral" is rated PG-13 for disturbing behavior, violence, some partial nudity and language.

CS Comment:
As a "Battlestar Galactica" fan, I have to see Tricia Helfer in a new role. You may have to as well!

"Join Caillou as he explores everyday life, where ordinary daily events spark his and your child's imagination. Your child will be inspired by Caillou's pretend play, and they will join in the role-playing fun where beds become boats, a garden becomes a jungle and Caillou and your child can become anything they can imagine. In 'Caillou's Surprise,' when Caillou accidentally breaks his Mommy's favorite cup, his Grandma takes him to a pottery class to make a new one. In 'People I Love,' Caillou gets to help his Dad's baseball team by becoming the water boy, and he does a great job. In 'Captain Caillou,' Caillou and Grandpa spend a fun day racing remote-controlled sailboats in the park. In 'Knowing How,' Caillou learns the value of determination and the benefits of success!"

"Caillou Calliou's Family Favorites" is not rated.
