Texas Chainsaw 3D
Lionsgate's "Texas Chainsaw 3D" continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought. Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her new found wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars…

Deep in the heart of the unforgiving Australian desert lies Pine Gap, a top-secret government facility operated by the United States military. When the base comes under attack from unknown forces, an elite team is sent in to extract the military scientists. They encounter a beautiful young woman with no memory of how she came to be in the base, and find it overrun by disturbed patients from the base’s medical sector.
But as the squad delves deeper it becomes clear that there is something far more sinister – and far more dangerous – going on at Pine Gap. A taut thriller that recalls the best classic sci-fi action films, "Crawlspace" is the feature debut of Justin Dix – an award winning special effects supervisor who has worked with George Lucas and Roger Donaldson.
A Dark Truth
Rating: Not Rated
In "A Dark Truth," Garcia plays an ex-CIA op-turned political talk show host. He’s hired by a corporate whistle blower to expose her company's cover-up of a massacre in a South American village.
The film draws attention to man's inhumanity and unconscious actions against the environment and questions if there is a moral and ethical obligation when talking about boundaries, borders and human interaction. With the ever-increasing depletion of earth's natural resource of water serving as the backdrop, a multi-national corporation disregards basic human needs that result in widespread illness and a people's uprising. The distress causes unlikely allies to conspire and seek redemption for past deeds and the greater good.

The latest installment in the ground breaking documentary film series known as "The Up" series.
In 1964, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Apted ("Coal Miner's Daughter," "Gorillas in the Mist," "The World is Not Enough," "Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader") began his career as a researcher on a new experimental series for Granada TV called "Seven Up," which explored the Jesuit maxim “Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man.” The original concept was to interview 14 children from diverse socio-economic backgrounds from all over England, to see whether a class system was in place. By asking the children about their lives and their dreams for the future, differences in attitudes and opportunity were witnessed.
For almost a half century, Apted has interviewed the original group every seven years, examining the progression of their lives. Now they are 56. From cab driver Tony, to schoolmates Jackie, Lynn and Susan and the iconoclast Neil, the present age brings more life-changing decisions and surprising developments. From success and disappointment, marriage and childbirth, to poverty and illness, nearly every facet of life is discussed with the group, as they assess whether their lives have ultimately been ruled by circumstance or self-determination.
"21 Up" was full of hope, "28" was about children and responsibility, "35" was concerned with mortality when some were losing parents, and "49" had a sense of disappointment with lives maybe not fully achieved. Yet "56" is quite different again, which goes to prove, if nothing else, that the series mirrors life, and is always full of surprises.
All Superheroes Must Die
Rating: Not Rated
The film follows four masked avengers – Charge (Trost), Cutthroat (Till), The Wall (Valmassy) and Shadow (Merkley) - who find themselves stripped of their powers by their arch-nemesis (Remar), whom they defeated years earlier...or so they thought. When the sinister mastermind puts the heroes through a series of brutal challenges that are virtually impossible to overcome, they must battle the clock – and even each other – in a race to stop a deadly countdown that could mean total destruction. Will the superheroes prevail, or will they be forced to meet their demise as mere human beings?
