    Say it. "Candyman" takes the top of our list of the popular movies to watch at home this week as it makes its PVOD debut. Director Nia DaCosta takes the classic 1992 slasher flick and re-imagines it for a modern age. "Candyman" serves as a direct continuation from the original, now set 27 years after the events of the first one. Tony Todd reprises his role as the vengeful spirit. For a chilling night, take this one in, but be careful not to join the hive.

    John Krasinki's anticipated follow-up to his 2018 smash hit "A Quiet Place" continues to be one of the top movies at home to rent and stream. "A Quiet Place: Part II" made a very loud impact in theaters when it debuted over Memorial Day Weekend. After a year-long delay, people were excited to get back to the cinema and continue the story of the Abbott clan as they continue to navigate their terrifying world. If you still need to catch up, here are the 9 things to know before watching.

    It seems like those that try to make a Task Force X movie are forever doomed. Director James Gunn amps up his flash and bombast that made "Guardians of the Galaxy" legends in the MCU for this ragtag team of supervillains in the DC universe. Gunn's take works better than David Ayer's previous attempt, even if the fans didn't come around.

    "F9" races back to the top as a new director's cut becomes available on VOD. It's no shock that the big movie that revved up hope that the big screen can still draw crowds is one of the top movies at home. Get in on the memes and enjoy this blockbuster that's just as much about family as it is about ridiculous cars that can reach the stratosphere. If you haven't seen it yet, here's all you need to know before you give it a watch. As for what's new in this cut? There are a few extended scenes, including a flashback that includes some franchise-favorite characters.

    Marvel returned in a big way to big screens this year. While "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" breaks box office records, take in the first theatrical entry to the MCU's Phase Four. "Black Widow" finds Scarlett Johansson finally taking the lead as we explore her time on the run following the events of "Captain America: Civil War." With allusions to both Bond and Bourne, this is one globetrotting adventure you won't want to miss.

    Clearly, we can't get enough of Ryan Reynolds. While "Free Guy" reigns at the box office, "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" slays as one of the top movies to watch at home. Just when bodyguard Michael Bryce (Reynolds) thought he was out, Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek), wife of hitman Darius (Samuel L. Jackson), pulls him back in. Only this time, Bryce can't use lethal force. "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" may not have connected with theater-goers when it debuted in June, but the action-comedy will likely score a hit with audiences at home.

    Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt do their best Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn as they take a jungle cruise to remember. Based on Disney's popular theme park ride, "Jungle Cruise" might not win any awards. But for a pure popcorn adventure, you can't go wrong. A sequel is on the way, too.

    When Nic Cage calls a film "the wildest movie I've ever made," you know you should sit up and pay attention. Considering his filmography, that's high praise. Considering director Sion Sono's filmography? That statement definitely says something, too. "Prisoners of the Ghostland" is Sono's first English-language feature. Whatever we say here won't do the film justice. Just watch the trailer.

    "Wrath of Man" continues to hold its own against the fury of all the new movies to watch. Director Guy Ritchie re-teams with his "Lock, Stock" and "Snatch" collaborator Jason Statham for this update of the 2004 French actioner "Cash Truck." While reviews were mixed, fans of Ritchie and Statham can do no wrong here.

    Steven Lang is back as Blind Man Norman, but this time he's the one on defense. After the success of 2016's low-budget chiller, a sequel was more than expected. Co-writer of the first one, Rodo Sayagues, makes his directorial debut here to mixed effect. Next up for the "Don't Breathe" team of Sayagues and Fede Álvarez? A "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" reboot.
