Macabre Media: Gone Girl, The Calling, Before I Go To SleepPosted: October 27, 2014
Today at Macabre Media, it’s all about the women .
Ogre and I recently saw Gone Girl in the theater. I was really caught up in Rosamund Pike’s performance and she is definitely the star of this film. Gone Girl is a great date movie, if you want to have some in-depth conversation with your partner after seeing it.
We missed The Calling (which I included as an “& LATER” selection in a past blog) when it was playing on the big screen, but we rented it via Redbox. (I don’t think it had much of a run.) This is not a typical serial killer movie. I’m not even sure I’d call it a thriller. It was, however, a serviceable canvas on which Susan Sarandon could paint a complex and realistic character.
Neither movie is precisely horror, so for those of you who want something a little more seasonally appropriate this week, have a look at my Netflix streaming suggestions.
At the theaters:
I rounded up my recommendations for Halloween-appropriate movies which are now available through Netflix streaming in the post:
If we go to the movies on Saturday or Sunday (once Halloween is done) we’ll probably see either Horns (which I mentioned last week) or this one:
A woman wakes up every day, remembering nothing as a result of a traumatic accident in her past. One day, new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her.
Starring Nicole Kidman & Colin Firth
Opening on October 31st, 2014
As usual, I’ll send a heads-up out on FB & Twitter & G+ when we get a little closer to the release date.
