What's Playing 03/13/09

We are now coming up upon our second Friday the 13th of the year and once again we get a horror remake sure to get within our souls. First of all there is a little comedy and probably partial nudity in Miss March. Dwayne “Don’t Call Me The Rock” Johnson joins the Disney express en route to Witch Mountain. But for those looking for a freaked out good time should check out the remake of Wes Craven’s first film, The Last House On The Left. Don’t let me down remake gods…don’t let me down.

The Last House On The Left – Starring Garret Dillahunt, Joshua Cox, Riki Lindhome, Monica Potter, and more.

Experience the terror in this remake of the 1972 original.

Miss March – Starring Zach Cregger, Trevor Moore, Raquel Alessi, and more. A young man awakens from a four-year coma to hear that his once virginal high-school sweetheart has since become a centerfold in one of the world’s most famous men’s magazines.
