Halloween Ends, Netflix’s new horror comedy and every new movie to watch


Spooky season is in full swing, but that doesn’t mean your only options for movie night are spooky. Only more of them. The good news is that they look pretty good! Halloween ends is a particularly great seasonal treat, a marquee horror release airing on Peacock and hitting theaters the same weekend – everyone’s invited to Michael Myers’ party.

The best news is that the few non-scary options aren’t bad either. Action fans have a new Scott Adkins joint to devour Accident Man: The Hitman’s Vacation. And Rosalinethe ironic tale of Romeo and Juliet from the perspective of Juliette’s best friend, is wonderful counter-programming to…everything else.

Marlon Wayan (white chicks) and Priah Ferguson (stranger things) Netflix family horror-comedy star The Curse of Bridge Hollow as a father and daughter who move into a haunted house and accidentally unleash a vengeful spirit that brings each of their new hometown’s Halloween decorations to life. It looks scary.

You might be tempted to dismiss this movie based on the very silly title and dark premise: an escort who’s been blindsided by a serial killer trying to kill her meets a young boy who assists her. However, there’s a big reason why you shouldn’t cancel this – it’s the first film in 10 years from the legendary Suspiria director Dario Argento.

Romeo and Juliet irreverently told from the perspective of Juliette’s best friend. Seems to be the perfect movie for those who miss Apple TV Dickinson. Remember Dickinson? It was awesome.

This DTV Martial Arts Movie Is A 2018 Sequel injured man. The movies are a passion project for Scott Adkins, who read comics growing up. As a huge Adkins fan who didn’t like the first injured mantake it from me [ed. note: Pete Volk]: This film rules. The action scenes whip, and unlike the first, the film’s humor landed for me this time around. Add in the fact that the movie was shot on location in Malta, and it blows bigger-budget action films out of the water.

You probably know this Clerks is about. That’s it, 15 years after the last one. That’s kind of the goal! But it’s also mostly for people who joke. Or those who would like to catch up. It’s your weekend.
