Halloween stars Jamie Lee Curtis (A Fish Called Wanda, True Lies) in her debut role. Anyone who’s ever watched a horror film in the last 35 years knows the story of Michael Myers, who as a child, butchered his sister with a kitchen knife.
Committed to a mental institution and watched over by Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance, Halloween II, IV & V, Fantastic Voyage), he engineers his escape 15 years later, returning to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night to terrorize anyone who gets in his way, including babysitter Laurie Strode (Curtis).
Co-starring P.J. Soles (Carrie, Stripes, Rock ‘n Roll High School), Kyle Richards (The Watcher in the Woods, Eaten Alive), Nancy Loomis (Carpenter’s Assault On Precinct 13, The Fog), Charles Cyphers (Escape From New York, The Fog) and Brian Andrews (The Great Santini, Three O’Clock High), Halloween also cemented the careers of many behind the camera including Carpenter, Cundey, producer Debra Hill and film editor/production designer Tommy Lee Wallace (Halloween III: Season of the Witch, ‘It’).
Stephen King’s best-selling novel is brought to terrifying life in this mind-blowing thriller starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. At the Boston airport, Clay (Cusack) witnesses a scene of chaotic mayhem when an electronic signal turns hundreds of cell phone users into rabid killers.
Desperate to find his estranged wife and son, Clay teams with a train driver (Jackson) to battle the horde of murderous “phoners” as the city descends into apocalyptic madness.
For Tyler’s (Evan Williams) 30th birthday, his girlfriend Christen (Elisabeth Hower) gets him an unusual gift: admission to a mysterious Escape Room event. As they enter with four friends, they find themselves trapped in bizarre rooms where they must solve tricky puzzles to advance.
But Christen has disappeared, and Tyler is shocked to see her on a video monitor, naked and trapped in a cage while the seconds count down. When the cruel game begins to turn deadly, he realizes they may not all escape with their lives…
An opening shot of one of those enormous, endlessly flowing, across-the-top-of-the-screen George Lucas space cruisers introduces us into the not-quite-so-serious world of director Mel Brooks’ planet Spaceball, which is attempting to steal the atmosphere of its peace- ful neighboring planet, Druidia.
The lead characters: Bill Pullman is Lone Star, a freelance space jockey; John Candy is Barf, the Mawg (half-man,half-dog); Rick Moranis is the evil Lord Dark Helmet, who complains a lot (actually, most of the time); Daphne Zuniga is Princess Vespa; and Mel Brooks undertakes two roles: (1) as Scroob, the president of Spaceball and (2) as Yogurt, a very wise old man who repeats the moving sentiment, May the Schwartz be with you!
A teenage boy’s (Michael J. Fox) incredible werewolf powers improve the quality of his life in dramatic and hilarious ways.
Lars and the Real Girl
Lars Lindstrom is an awkwardly shy young man (Ryan Gosling) in a small town who finally brings home the girl of his dreams to his brother (Paul Schneider) and sister-in-law’s (Emily Mortimer) home. The only problem is that she’s not real she’s a sex doll Lars ordered off of the internet.
But sex is not what Lars has in mind, but rather a deep, meaningful relationship. His sister-in-law is worried for him, his brother thinks he’s crazy, but eventually the entire town goes along with his delusion in support of this sweet-natured boy that they’ve always loved.
An ex-con (Alec Baldwin) tiptoes on the borderline of psychotic behavior, playing cops and robbers on both sides of the law. He robs and kills one minute and poses as a cop the next in this thriller with a comic edge.
Those ghastly ghosts return to battle once more with JoBeth Williams and Craig T. Nelson for the soul of a young clairvoyant.
Rules will be broken tonight! Alexa Vega stars in this irresistible comedy about four best friends who embark on a zany scavenger hunt against their ”popular girl” rivals! Bursting with hilarious hijinks, glorious girl-power and maybe even a first kiss or two. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Brie Larson, Jane Lynch, and Steve Carell.
Deteriorating from a deadly plague, 21st-Century America is descending into a barbaric nightmare. Only Pearl Prophet (Dayle Haddon), a beautiful half human/half cyborg, has the knowledge necessary to develop a vaccine. But during her quest to bring the cure to the world, Pearl is captured by cannibalistic Flesh Pirates who plot to keep the antidote for themselves and rule the world. Now, only saber-wielding hero Gibson Rickenbacker (Jean-Claude Van Damme) can rescue her and save civilization.
