Ruben Fleischer.

Studio: Warner Bros Pictures.
Where's it playing? Everywhere!
The first huge, highly anticipated release of 2013, Gangster Squad (from the director of Zombieland) boasts an impressive star-studded cast including Ryan “Hey Girl” Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, and Al Pacino from Dick Tracy Sean Penn. Wait, what?

A Haunted House.
Director:
Michael Tiddes.

Studio: Open Road Films.
Where's it playing? Everywhere!
Marlon Wayans, the self-proclaimed “Master of Spoof Suspense” and co-creator of Scary Movie, brings us his latest laugh/scarefest, which this time mocks all those found-footage Paranormal Activity-style films. Para-bore-mal Whack-tivity is more like it, am I right?

Quartet.
Director:
Dustin Hoffman.
Writer: Ronald Harwood.
Cast: Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, Michael Gambon.
Studio: The Weinstein Company.
Where's it playing? Only at the Angelika Dallas.
Based on Ronald Harwood's stage play, is the directorial debut from an up-and-comer by the name of Dustin Hoffman. Heard of him? Just checking. The film centers around an exclusive retirement home for musicians. So it's like Cocoon, but with fewer aliens and less Gutenberg.

Repulsion (1965) in 35MM.
Director:
Roman Polanski.
Writers: Roman Polanski, Gérard Brach.
Cast: Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser.
Studio: Compton Films.
Where's it playing? Saturday only at the Texas Theatre.
Two years after 1962's Knife in the Water and three years before 1968's Rosemary's Baby, Roman Polankski repulsed the world with his first English-language film about a woman cooped up in her flat and going insane from the inside out. Now the Texas Theatre is bringing back the notorious auteur's unseen classic, which features something to repulse everyone!

Delicatessen (1991).
Directors:
Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
Writers: Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
Cast: Marie-Laure Dougnac, Dominique Pinon, Jean-Claude Dreyfus.
Studio: Miramax.
Where's it playing? Friday and Saturday at midnight only at The Inwood.
From the same filmmakers behind The City of Lost Children and Amelie, Delicatessen takes place in a post-apocalyptic world without livestock where food has become the currency. Characters include an ex-clown, a butcher that let's just say is “handy” at finding other sources of meat and an underground subspecies of grain-eating troglodytes. The film could also double as a documentary about Denton.
