Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria is an hour longer than the original – and half as substantive.
There are certain things that are batsh*t crazy – covering Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention; diving into a frozen river, and remaking/reimaging Dario Argento’s classic giallo, Suspiria (even with Argento’s blessing).
The idea of a teenaged girl leading the forces of good to victory over seemingly overwhelming odds is one of the most used tropes in YA fiction. The 5th Wave is only the latest movie to riff on that idea.
Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of everyone involved, it’s just too easy to figure out what’s going on before the characters do. Not good. Very bad. Go around…

To deal with the girls of Kappa Nu, Mac and Kelly have no recourse but to call in an expert – Teddy (Zac Efron), the former head of the Delta Psi Beta Fraternity. Let the party wars begin!

In Laggies, Keira Knightley stars as Megan, a 28-year old woman who has never grown up – despite a really good education. When her high school sweetheart proposes, she freaks out at the thought of so specific a future and takes a week to try to think things through – or not.
She crashes with her 16-year old friend, Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her father, world weary Craig (Sam Rockwell).
Laggies, directed by Lynne Shelton, premieres in select theaters on October 24th and goes wide on November 7th. Follow the jump for further details – and a new slightly NSFW clip.
If I Stay is yet another movie based on a Young Adult novel I haven’t read. I’ve heard it’s a more faithful adaptation than most. What it is, is story about a teen cello prodigy who is faced with the biggest decision anyone could ever have to make – whether to live or die.
