Escape the autumn chill with these 5 movies in theaters
Action, horror or documentary — you pick.
As the autumn chill comes in this weekend, take refuge in the comfort of a movie theater. Here are five films worth checking out.
12 Years a Slave -- Every scene of 12 Years a Slave, and almost every shot, conveys some penetrating truth about America’s original sin.
Birth of the Living Dead -- The documentary Birth of the Living Dead is a nifty little tribute to that granddaddy of the modern zombie movie, George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.
Carrie -- Julianne Moore steals the show by delivering the true horror as the twisted mother in this uneven Carrie remake.
Escape Plan -- Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are enjoyably back in action in this prison-escape caper.
Seasons of Gray -- This Bible-based, Texas-set film is polished and moving with its story of faith and forgiveness.
