Movies opening in Orlando this weekend

6 Souls, Evil Dead, Jurassic Park: An IMAX 3D Experience

6 Souls Even in a week when the arrival of the Florida Film Festival should theoretically account for all of the Orlando cine-buff’s free time and discretionary spending, some distributors are unafraid to engage in a bit of bold counterprogramming. Take 6 Souls, a slice of indie horror that stars Julianne Moore as a psychiatrist who begins to suspect that her latest patient (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is collecting more than just neuroses. This is clearly the movie for you if you’ve ever asked yourself, “I wonder what that Swedish duo who directed Underworld: Awakening did right before it?” Or maybe “How did the guy who wrote Identity get to make another movie?” Other questions you might want to ponder: Why did 6 Souls come out as Shelter three years ago? Why was that release limited to Japan? Why is the movie seeing the light of U.S. projectors now? Why did its publicist only alert the Orlando-area media four days before its opening here? And which Florida Film Festival screenings work best with my schedule? (R) – Steve Schneider

 

Evil Dead In just over a quarter-century, Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead has gone from a midnight cult item to an off-Broadway musical. Now the splatterful success story comes full circle via a big-screen remake that has Raimi’s sea of approval, a young new cast of human chum, and a precious four-out-of-five-skulls rating from Bloody Disgusting. But it’s the whole movies-to-stage- to-movies angle that’s going to bring in the casuals, since the entertainment business simply hasn’t seen anything like it since … um, Hairspray. And The Producers. And Little Shop of Horrors. And La Cage aux Folles. Fuck it, work with me here; I’m trying to think like a publicist. (R) – SS

 

Jurassic Park: An IMAX 3D Experience – And if Evil Dead doesn’t do enough to renew your faith in the conquerability of death, there’s always this retrofitted version of Spielberg’s 20-year-old blockbuster. Gape in wide-eyed wonderment as the screen once again comes alive with the rampaging of ancient beasts who just wouldn’t stay extinct. You go, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern! (PG-13) – SS
