NOVEMBER

Before the season of commercial films, studios will roll out a few prestige films for awards season. The movie set-up is that Peter Parker must stop a group of corporate bigwigs from invading New York City. The dark tone remains but the slight change of tone gives this film a much more compelling character arc. It features a chilling roster of Hollywood celebrities including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Michael Douglas, Michael Shannon, and a reluctant Jake Gyllenhaal. Like everything, every actor commits to the scenes, but it is Downey who turns in an absolutely terrifying performance. When you compare him to his co-stars, the difference is really quite vast.

JANUARY

Crazy Rich Asians a mainstream box office hit also picked up a slew of accolades this year, winning the Golden Globe, Oscar, and Emmy Awards nominations respectively. This breakout romance features leading roles for Constance Wu and Henry Golding and is the first Asian-American lead in a romantic comedy since Ghost in the Shell in 2017.

An unconventional new horror film follows a mother and her son as they decide to move from New York City to the suburbs to raise their family. As they move into their new home, their neighborhood and their private lives begin to spiral out of control.

SUNDAY

Bloodbuzzy documentary director Jason Zada follows director Dick Cavett’s grandson, Ben Cavett, as he searches for the truth about his grandfather’s relationship with famed archaeologist Dr. Indiana Jones. A thrilling story that explores a hidden, thrilling web of intrigue.

TUESDAY

A third installment in the intense and emotional survival horror franchise now in theaters is “The Strangers: Prey at Night.” If you’ve seen the first two installments, this story will be quite familiar but “prey at night” makes this stand out from the others in several ways. As the horror rests mainly on the physical violence, this film proves to be deeply disturbing and exciting. It also helps that the cast is excellent — Christina Hendricks is nothing short of terrifying.

WEDNESDAY

This nail-biting and unexpectedly intense thriller from New Zealand plays like a horror film as a prison van is jacked up with women from the infamous death row. The recent headlines surrounding the death row in the state have actually caused a number of journalists to cover the issue. The film is of such a high caliber that it makes you question why this campaign is happening. It is an interesting, thought-provoking piece of cinema.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream turned into a road trip horror film. A bored student heads off with his friends to explore a new but ancient town. Chaos and horror ensue as a strange and gory supernatural figure terrorizes and rears his nasty head.
