CATEGORIES Movie NewsHeading to the movies this weekend? Expect overwhelming feelings of nostalgia and dread, mixed with a lot of terror.
This weekend marks the release of two highly anticipated films: the remake/reboot/re-imagining of the 1981 cult horror classic "Evil Dead" and the remastered, 3D-ified Steven Spielberg classic "Jurassic Park."
If you've been living under a rock for the past 20 years, "Jurassic Park" is a Spielberg-helmed action-adventure about an amusement park, the main attraction of which is real-life, cloned dinosaurs. The 1993 film became a classic for its gripping story and jaw-dropping special effects, and now that it has been remastered and given the 3D treatment, "Jurassic Park in 3D" may gain an entirely new generation of fans.
Adding to the box office buzz is the release of "Evil Dead," the Fede Alvarez-directed horror remake that has people terrified -- but in a good way. The gory flick is about five twenty-something friends who, while holed up in a cabin, accidentally summon demons hiding in the nearby woods. A little advice to anyone planning a cabin-centric getaway: don't.
The thrillers "Trance" and "The Company You Keep" hit theaters in limited release this weekend.
