Wed, Oct 27

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

It might be an unorthodox choice for an erotic thriller series, but Fear fits nicely in the subcategory of teen psychosexual titillators such as Poison Ivy and Wild Things, with an added rarity in the genre – the fabled homme fatale! When Nicole (Reese Witherspoon) gets an eyeful of bad boy David (Mark Wahlberg), she can’t help but be charmed by his bulging muscles and chivalrous manners. But daddy Steven (William Petersen) is less trusting, so while he starts digging into his background, David’s true self emerges, and no amount of self-mutilation in her name can win Nicole back. Along the way, we get a Seattle rave, some smoldering dad-boyfriend eye contact, a thoughtfully assembled shrine and a memorable roller coaster ride.
