It’s October, which means Halloween is nearly upon us! Get you costumes completed, your home haunts constructed and your candy collected for trick’r treaters, because you have to make time to watch some of the scariest movies this time of year.

Thn HalloweenFest Day 3: John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’

3 October 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

‘Why don’t we just wait here for a little while… see what happens…’

Director: John Carpenter

Cast: Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David, Charles Hallahan, Richard Masur, Richard Dysart, Donald Moffat

Plot: The scientists at a remote Us outpost in Antartica stumble upon the seemingly unoccupied Norweigan frontier that holds evidence of a mysterious extraterrestrial existence. Upon the return to their own camp, they appear to have unknowingly brought along this mysterious shape-shifting alien that is able to manifest itself into any being it kills…

Horror Highlights: From the top-notch performances and the foreboding sense of dread (in part due to Ennio Morricone’s intimidating score), there is so much to marvel at (and terrify) during the The Thing’s running time – Albert Whitlock’s seamless matte paintings, Dean Cundey’s claustrophobic cinematography, that chilling, if somewhat, brave downbeat ending, what more’s needed to impress? Oh, yes »

The Primer director delivers another Us indie brainteaser that will leave minds blown and chins comprehensively scratched. A young woman who has been kidnapped, exposed to a parasite and robbed meets a man who seems to have endured the same horror. What any of that has to do with the maggots that possess psychedelic properties, or the sound recordist and his obsession with pigs, is anyone's guess. The mysteries endure long after the credits roll, and Carruth's direction is spellbinding enough to keep you puzzling over them – just about.

Directed by: Michael Haneke

Cast: Emmanuelle Riva, Jean-Louis Trintignant

Running Time: 2 hrs 7 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: January 11, 2013 (Chicago)

Plot: An elderly couple’s love is tested when the wife (Riva) suffers a stroke and requires the constant care of her husband (Trintignant).

Who’S It For? Amour isn’t brooding, but it is slow. Most of all, it can best be appreciated by those who have a mature understanding of the most important bonds within a relationship.


In her now Oscar-nominated performance, Riva (who once starred in lauded foreign classic Hiroshima, Mon Amour) provides a turn that is equally as physical as Naomi Watts’ also nominated portrayal in The Impossible. Throughout this performance, we watch Riva physically fade away. Riva spends much of the time stationary, her physical requirements constantly reduced, not to mention her waning ability to interact through dialogue with her husband. And yet, »
