The movie theaters this October are quite jammed with interesting titles. If you’re lost and don’t know what to watch first, you should check out this list before you set your priorities straight.
The Girl on the Train. Released on October 7, this is based by the best-selling book written by Paula Hawkins. It’s a thriller involving a young woman (played by Emily Blunt) who thinks she saw something dubious taking place at one of the homes she passes by when she’s on the train to work.
The Birth of a Nation. Also released on October 7, this Nate Parker production is a historical drama recreating the slave uprising that was led by Nat Turner in 1831 in Virginia. This was a particularly violent uprising, which is probably why the director chose it.
Voyage of Time. October 7 seems to be a particularly productive day, at least when it comes to movie releases. Voyage of Time is somewhat different than the rest of the movies, since it’s a 40-minute version made for IMAX. It is narrated by Brad Pitt.
Phantasm: Ravager. The Tall Man, played by the late Angus Scrimm, tries one more time to dominate the world with the help of dwarf-minions that have been brought back to life and some lethal flying spheres. This is the 5th and the last installment of the series. At the same time, some cinemas present the remastered version of the 1979 original Phantasm movie.
The Greasy Strangler. Released on October 7, this production shows a greasy weird character that loves to cover himself in oil and then to strangle people, as you might have guessed from the title. This demented indie has been previously presented at the Sundance Film Festival, and some people really liked it. Whether you’re into it or not, you can only find out in a single way.
