Jack’s dad dies in a car accident, so he decides to go home to look after his recovering mother. That’s where things take a twist for the, you guessed it, horror. The movie opens on October 14th.


You’ve seen Netflix’s Stranger Things, so Kidnap will sound pretty familiar. We’ve got a mom that will stop at nothing to find her kidnaped kid. But strange things won’t happen in this one. Halle Barry is the mom, and the movie comes out December 2nd.

La La Land

The Disappointments Room

If you can’t already tell by that strange title, The Disappointments Room is going to be a freaky movie. Who wants such a room in their home? Based on true events, the horror comes out September 9th. The kicker? Prison Break‘s Wentworth Miller wrote the screenplay for this one.

Based on real events, Sully is one of the must-see movies of the year. Not only because the story is amazing itself. But because Tom Hanks. And Clint Eastwood.
