A quick glance at some of the latest releases

 

 

Dead Silence  Rated R
Starring: Donnie Wahlberg, Amber Valletta, Ryan Kwanten, Bob Gunton Directed by: James Wan

Horror, Thriller, Suspense

Far from their hometown, newlyweds Jamie and Lisa Ashen thought they had established a fresh start. But when his wife is grotesquely killed, Jamie reluctantly returns to Ravens Fair for the funeral, intent on unravelling the mystery of her death.
Once reunited with his ill father and his father’s new young bride, Jamie must dig into the town’s bloody past to find out who killed his wife and why. He uncovers the legend of Mary Shaw, a ventriloquist accused of murdering a young boy and hunted down by vengeful townspeople who cut out her tongue and killed her. They buried her along with her “children,” a hand-made collection of vaudeville dolls.
Jamie unlocks the story of her curse and the truth behind the song from his childhood: if you see her and scream, you will never speak again.

The Astronaut Farmer - Rated PG
Starring: Billy Bob Thornton, Virginia Madsen, Bruce Willis, Bruce Dern. Directed by: Michael Polish

Drama

The story follows an eccentric farmer who dreams of space travel and sets out to build a rocket inside his barn. His neighbours consider him an oddity, the government thinks he is a threat, and the media sees him as a story. But he can't give up his dream of space travel and looks to build his own rocket, despite the government's threats to stop him.

 

Disturbia Rated - PG
Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Carrie-Anne Moss, David Morse, Sarah Roemer. Directedby: D.J. Caruso

Drama, Thriller, Suspense

After his father's death, Kale Brecht (LaBeouf) becomes sullen, withdrawn, and troubled—so much so that he finds himself under a court-ordered sentence of house arrest. His mother, Julie (Moss), works night and day to support herself and her son, only to be met with indifference and lethargy. The walls of his house begin to close in on Kale. He becomes a voyeur as his interests turn outside the windows of his suburban home towards those of his neighbours, one of which Kale begins to suspect is a serial killer. But, are his suspicions merely the product of cabin fever and his overactive imagination?

 

 

 

The Last Mimzy Rated PG
Starring: Joely Richardson, Timothy Hutton, Michael Clarke Duncan, Rainn Wilson, Kathryn Hahn, Chris O’Neil, Rhiannon Leigh Wryn. Directed by: Bob Shaye

Drama, Kids, Family

Based on the acclaimed sci-fi short story by Lewis Padgett, The Last Mimzy tells the story of two children who discover a mysterious box that contains some strange devices they think are toys. As the children play with these “toys,” they begin to display higher and higher intelligence levels. Their teacher tells their parents that they seem to have grown beyond genius. Their parents, too, realize something extraordinary is happening. Emma, the younger of the two, tells her confused mother that one of the toys, a beat-up stuffed toy rabbit, is named Mimzy and that “she teaches me things.”
As Emma’s mom becomes increasingly concerned, a blackout shuts down the city and the government traces the source of the power surge to Emma’s family’s house. Things quickly spin wildly out of their control. The children are focused on these strange objects, Mimzy, and the important mission on which they seem to have been sent. When the little girl says that Mimzy contains a most serious message from the future, a scientific scan shows that Mimzy is part extremely high level electronic, and part organic! Everyone realizes that they are involved in something incredible…but exactly what?
