  • Life After Beth (A24)

Life After Beth
When Beth (Aubrey Plaza) suddenly dies and then comes back to life, her boyfriend (Dane DeHaan) blissfully overlooks that she's turning into a violent, flesh-hungry zombie who can only be calmed by ... smooth jazz? There's the relationship killer. (A24)

Play Hooky
Five high school friends skip class to party (so far, so good) in an abandoned mental institution (uh oh) notorious for ghost sightings and Satanic rituals (aw, hell no). Did no one read the abandoned mental institution Yelp reviews first? Kids. (MVD)

The Purge: Anarchy
On the one night of the year when all crime is legal, a man (Frank Grillo) bent on revenge for his son's murder ends up saving innocents, instead—which constitutes Anarchy against The Purge, because The Purge itself is Anarchy ... right? (Universal)

Sex Tape
Jay (Jason Segal) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) make a sex tape, which is accidentally made public via the Cloud. We made fun of the "Cloud" setup when Sex Tape premiered, but who's laughing now, Jennifer Lawrence? Kate Upton? Nick Hogan? (Sony)

In the post-apocalyptic future, a super-train that never stops carries the reminder of mankind around the world and, surprise, the rich are still dicks. Until one man (Chris Evans) leads a revolt for control of the engine—or at least the bar car. (Radius)
