Black Mass

They say nothing unites people like a common enemy. That could explain why, in the 1970s, an FBI agent decided the best way to take down the Italian mob was to team up with Irish organized-crime boss Whitey Bulger. This mob thriller retraces the unholy alliance, with Johnny Depp (almost unrecognizable in a terrible hairpiece) as Bulger and a killer cast rounded out by Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Dakota Johnson.



Elijah Wood stars in this dark comedy about a substitute teacher forced to fight for survival after a student eats a tainted chicken nugget in the cafeteria, becomes a zombie, and infects her whole class. (Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, and Rainn Wilson play a few of his coworkers.) It’s packed with the usual zombie tropes and plenty of gratuitous gore, making it a must-see for horror fans. It’s hitting theaters in a limited release, along with video-on-demand for the rest of us—so you don’t even need to leave the couch.
