In an outrageous send up of the Paranormal Activity movies, The Devil Inside and other “found footage” movies, A HAUNTED HOUSE features young couple Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) who have just moved in to their dream house. As they settle in, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s Malcolm’s girlfriend who is possessed by a demon.

Set in a small fishing village on the Massachusetts coast, “Fairhaven,” part comedy, part drama is the story of three friends, reunited for a father’s funeral.
Jon (O’Brien), a former high school football star and one time college athlete, has landed back in the place of his youth – Fairhaven – a small fishing village on the Massachusetts coast. At a crossroads in his life, Jon looks for purpose and meaning in everything and through everything…from therapy to meditation. He is inspired by a 60 Minutes interview with his football hero, Tom Brady, who proclaims that, even after three super bowl wins, “There’s got to be something more than this.” If his hero can’t have it all, how can he? Although he wrestles with the idea, he finds it oddly reassuring.
A single father, Sam (Sommer) never left town. Of the three friends, he is the most responsible, and the most content, even though he is secretly still in love with his ex-wife Kate (Paulson), the girl everyone loved in high school.
Jon and Sam are awaiting the return of their best friend from high school, Dave, who is returning to Fairhaven for the first time in ten years for the funeral of his estranged father.
Dave (Messina) is the one that got out. Ten years later, when he returns for his father’s funeral, he is forced to revisit everything he ran away from. Although he portrays himself as living an easy-going life out West, troubles bubble under the surface. No matter how far he goes, he can’t escape himself.
Struggling to find their way, after a weekend together, the three friends realize that whatever life brings them, they will always have each other and it will always be good to go home.
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.
Beecham House is abuzz. The rumor circling the halls is that the home for retired musicians is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it’s a star. For Reginald Paget (Tom Courtenay), Wilfred Bond (Billy Connolly) and Cecily Robson (Pauline Collins) this sort of talk is par for the course at the gossipy home. But they’re in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean Horton (Maggie Smith). Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard. Can the passage of time heal old wounds? And will the famous quartet be able to patch up their differences in time for Beecham House’s gala concert?
