After impressing many horror fans with "Saw," director James Wan is at it again. In "Dead Silence," a man returns home searching for answers to his wife's mysterious murder, only to discover a deadly ancient curse. Don't expect gore from this one, as Wan is aiming at not only to scare you, but also to creep you out.
Also in theaters is Sandra Bullock's "Premonition," about a housewife in a race against time and fate to save her husband from dying in a car crash. Reviews have been a little negative for this one, claiming that the story is slow and confusing.
The only other wide release is Chris Rock's another stab at directing feature films called "I Think I Love My Wife." This one is said to be just like every other Rock film, riddled with bad jokes, poor acting, and in this case, incredibly melodramatic.
Seems like anything worth watching is in limited release. First up is "The Wind That Shakes the Barley," starring Cillian Murphy. The story is set during the Irish Civil War in 1919, and is about two brothers who join Ireland's guerrilla armies formed to battle the British Black and Tan squads. This one was a Cannes favorite.
For a fun, clever movie, check out "Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon," the trailer alone intrigued me enough to want to go see this film about a would-be killer who idolizes cinema's greatest psycho-slashers.
Also in limited release is "Nomad," which is set in 18th-century Kazakhstan, and is about a boy who feels destined to one day unite the three warring tribes of the region against foreign invaders.
Overall, it seems like it will be another "300" weekend.
