The Stevil Dead on Movies – October 27th, 2016

Only getting a limited release here in Canada, it’s crazy news to see that Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween took the top spot at the box office this weekend, also being that I never even talked about it on the air that earned $28.5. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back opened in second with $22.9 and the other new release, Ouija: Origin of Evil, was behind that in third with $14.1. Rounding out the top five was The Accountant, taking an additional $13.6, and The Girl On The Train, which pulled in $7.2.

With only one new wide release this weekend it’s either Tom Hanks or nothing:

Inferno – Tom Hanks returns for a third time as Robert Langdon in this film based on the fourth book of Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code series. This time Langdon finds himself in the center of a billionaire’s plot to wipe out a massive portion of the Earth’s population. The film is good for a popcorn mystery but isn’t anything great beyond that.

Limited:

Supersonic – This long anticipated documentary on Oasis finally hits the screen at Vancouver’s Park Theatre for one night only, this Thursday. Check out the bickering Gallagher brothers in this story of the rise and fall of a band that once proclaimed that they were bigger than The Beatles.

Demon – Part comedy, part horror, this Polish film is an exploration of the old horror myth, The Dibbuk Box. Demonic possession happens at the most inopportune of times, in the middle of a lively wedding in a must see film, from a director who sadly passed away last year at the young age of 42.

At the Twilight Drive-In: This week’s triple header is a one I call “Definitely A Guy’s Night (Say Hi To Your Mother For Me)”.

Blu-Ray: the inventive horror film Lights Out, the fizzling techno-thriller, Nerve, the wholly underrated film Captain Fantastic, Mel Gibson in a new thriller, Blood Father and the horribly depressing New Zealand film, The Daughter.
