So, if you plan to make cinema a part of your night, you're going to want to plan it. Maybe, instead of a saccharine romcom, you'd like some horror to snuggle up with. If that's the case, you might want to check out The Caretaker, when it gets released this February 14. It's just a little indie film, but it looks quirky; it has some funny bits; and what could be better to watch while eating conversation hearts than a horny Jennifer Tilly hitting on students and serial killers alike, or Judd Nelson being the protective dad?
The Caretaker focuses on a group of teens who want to scare their girlfriends during Homecoming, which just happens to fall on Halloween. To up the chills, they go to an abandoned house in a grapefruit orchard -- yes, grapefruits -- and are stalked/butchered by a real-life urban legend. If this sounds like it might be up your alley, and you aren't in Toronto to get a healthy splatter of blood at the reappearance of Evil Dead: The Musical, The Caretaker might be all you need.
