Little Women

This is probably the last thing that ran through the Louisa May Alcott's mind when she first wrote the beloved classic, but here we are, still fascinated with it one hundred and fifty years later. In this new reboot, all of the original characters are back in somewhat recognizable forms. Be prepared for all of the sisterly antics in this newest telling.

Night School

You have likely seen many of the faces behind this comedy before working together, so you know what to expect. A group of misfits enter into a class together to see if they can by some miracle pass their GED exams. There is an even bigger surprise when the instructor is kind of a babe.

Hell Fest

I guess it is never too early to start watching the horror films to prepare yourself for Halloween. A masked serial killer invades a theme park and turns it into his domain, and while the guests think it is a game, they might soon realize it is not. The killer will soon find a group of girls and their boyfriends, who will be faced with the task of stopping the torture from hurting any more people.
