I started this series last month as a manner to keep track of all the amazing movies that are constantly coming out. Lets be honest there are tonnes of great films on the horizon and unless you keep up to date many slip out of our thoughts until they pop up on Netflix. October is a time for scary thrills and terrible frights, I was surprised at the lack of horrors being released this month, with only one cracking my list. Let’s check it out…
5. The Girl on the Train (Oct. 7)
A popular psychological thriller novel from author Paula Hawkins, I have seen this book on many of my blogging friends sites. Unfortunately, a genre I do not normally delve in to, and would sit low on my tbr pile. Fortunately, the movie looks like a quality thriller, that should be both entertaining and creepy.
4. Inferno (Oct. 28)
Another book to movie adaptation, of yet another novel I doubt I would ever get to. The fourth Robert Langdon novel from Dan Brown, is the third movie adaptation. Continuing on the Harvard professors mind boggling adventures, this film is sure to have more of the same highly intelligent, suspense driven plot that made this series a success.
3. The Lennon Report (Oct. 7)
As a Beatles fan, specifically a Lennon fan, when I first heard that this drama film was on its way, I got pretty excited. The unheard, true story of the events that took place after the legendary artist was shot, should be a great insight of one of pop cultures most shocking moments. Gaining decent early reviews, there is much to look forward to in this biographical drama.
2. Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders (Oct. 10)
The return of Adam West and Burt Ward, reprising their roles as the 1960’s duo of Batman and Robin. This animated film is sure to have a nostalgic feel of one of nerdoms favorite cheesy throwbacks. Featuring a stellar set of villains like The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman, can the caped crusaders protect Gotham one more time?
1. 31 (Oct. 21)
Rob Zombie returns to direct yet another creepy, visually disturbing, horror ride. What looks like a return to form to the ‘House of 1000 Corpses’ or ‘Devils Rejects’ quality freak show, this is bound to be a grotesque and gory film. Five carnival workers strive to survive a murderous game concocted by psychotic clowns. What is not to be excited about when this film hits theatres in time for Halloween.
Thanks booknerds, don’t forget your popcorn.
