Serial Mom, Psycho, Chicago Cubs and More New Releases (5/9/17)
Every woman wants to be wanted… just not for Murder One!
Director John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray) brings his twisted cinematic vision to the seemingly mundane world of suburbia in Serial Mom, an outrageous dark comedy starring Kathleen Turner (Body Heat, Romancing The Stone).
Beverly (Turner) is the perfect happy homemaker. Along with her doting husband Eugene (Sam Waterston) and two children, Misty (Ricki Lake) and Chip (Matthew Lillard), she lives a life straight out of Good Housekeeping. But this nuclear family just might explode when Beverly's fascination with serial killers collides with her ever-so-proper code of ethics – transforming her from middle class mom to mass murderer! Soon, the bodies begin to pile up… and suburbia faces a horror even worse than wearing white after Labor Day.
Featuring appearances by Mink Stole, Suzanne Somers, Traci Lords, and Patty Hearst, Serial Mom is a bloody hilarious tale that's as American as motherhood, the flag, and apple die.
"It remains the most structurally elegant and sneakily playful of thrillers!" – Janet Maslin, New York Times
Criminal on the run, Marion Crane (Anne Heche) take refuge at the motel operated by Norman Bates (Vince Vaughn) – a troubled man whose victims encounter a grisly fate at the hands of his "mother." Marion soon becomes the next victim and her disappearance prompts inquiries from her sister (Julianne Moore) and a private investigator (William H. Macy). They both soon discover the morbid bond linking Norman to his mysterious "mother" at the Bates Motel. Relive the terror in acclaimed director Gus Van Sant's all-new version of Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece of suspense...PSYCHO.
A Fantastic Fear Of Everything
Jack's a writer with a dark secret…but now his demons are taking over.
Comedic genius Simon Pegg (Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz) stars in a most unusual horror-comedy, A Fantastic Fear Of Everything.
Jack (Pegg) is a children's author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by an irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a lifeline by his long-suffering agent, and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in Jack's script. What should be his "big break" rapidly turns into his "big breakdown" as Jack is forced to confront his worst fears; among them love, laundry and serial killers.
2016 World Series: The Complete Game 7
"It would have to be something epic. And that was epic, wasn't it?" – Tom Ricketts, Chairman of the Chicago Cubs™
The definitive 2016 World Series™ Game 7 is presented in its entirety, preserving the complete, unedited footage of the game for which Chicago Cubs fans had been waiting 108 years!
The Cubs came back from a 3-games-to-1 World Series deficit to end years of frustration, but it was no easy feat. The winner-take-all Game 7 featured drama and tension throughout, including two ties and an extra frame of baseball. In the eighth, Rajai Davis of the Indians™ erased the Cubs lead with a 2-run home run which sent the game to extras and Cubs fans to hysteria. A 17-minute rain delay washed away the panic, then World Series MVP Ben Zobrist smacked an RBI double for the lead and Miguel Montero singled in Anthony Rizzo for a 2-run cushion that would be sorely needed as the Indians would not go quietly in the tenth.
Game 7 will go down as one of the most epic in baseball history: four hours, 28 minutes of stomach-churning drama that mercifully ended a drought and changed history.
