You've got a lot of options for what to watch and how, and we want to help you plan your weekend with a new column where we'll highlight three things you can see in theaters, three things you'll find streaming, and three titles new to home video. Appropriately enough, we call this The Weekend Watch.
It's hard to believe that this is really summer. "The Avengers" pulled all the oxygen out of the room, so the rest of the month has just felt like a typical spring, a warm-up for the main event. That's starting to change this weekend, though, and even so, it's the smaller films hitting theater screens that I'm most intrigued by.
IN THEATERS TODAY
"The Loved Ones"
It's taken quite a while for this film to make it into theaters, but this weekend, Sean Byrne's unnerving high school horror film about Lola, the most disturbingly spoiled teenage girl in film history, and her own special version of the senior prom will finally make it to theaters in special midnight bookings. Paramount has been good about selling horror films the last few years, and when they manage to turn an unflushable turd like "The Devil Inside" into a hit, they deserve some credit. I wish "The Loved Ones" was opening wider, but if you like horror that pulls no punches, this one's worth the effort to track it down and check it out.
