Ghouls and Goblins its all Hallows Eve Weekend of 2009, but this doesn’t take away from what you desire, new movies. Not too many coming out this weekend, but some you might have a particular interest in.

This Is It (Michael Jackson) A compilation of interviews, rehearsals and backstage footage of Michael Jackson as he prepared for his series of sold-out shows in London. This film is for the hardcore Jackson fans out there. It’s not like we don’t know everything about him and people are probably tired of hearing about his death and such. I wouldn’t spend my time on this one, but it could be educational if you got bored and really wanted to know about what his life was like before he died.  Rent It

Gentlemen Broncos – Limited (Michael AngaranoJemaine ClementMike White) Soon after his latest work is published, science-fiction author Ronald Chevalier (Clement) faces charges of plagiarism from aspiring teenage writer Benjamin Purvis (Angarano). A new movie from Director/Writer Jared Hess who did Nacho Libre and Napoleon Dynamite. This looks kind of funny but I think Hess is a one hit wonder. Did anyone even see Nacho Libre, I know I haven’t. Rent It

The Boondock Saints II: All Saint’s Day – Limited (Sean Patrick FlaneryNorman ReedusBilly Connolly) The MacManus brothers, who are living a quiet life on the family farm in Ireland, return to Boston to exact their unique form of revenge on the mob forces who have framed the brothers for the murder of a local priest. The highly anticipated sequel of the “cult classic” The Boondock Saints. To me the first movie is very overrated, but tons of people love the characters and the original story, but can the sequel hold true to its original values? Rent it

The House of the Devil – Limited (Jocelin DonahueTom NoonanMary Woronov) A broke college student (Donahue) is lured to a Victorian mansion deep in the woods for what she thinks is a lucrative babysitting job, though she soon realizes her creepy clients have nightmarish plans for her. This indie horror looks to be very interesting. The marketing and posters for this movie are quite unique and seem to be a little on the hush hush side. It looks like a great scare and with a lot of influence from classic horror cinematography. See It (especially because its HALLOWEEN)
