http://budurl.com/hauntedairman Flight Lieutenant Jugg (Twilight's Robert Pattinson), confined to a wheelchair after being wounded in action, arrives at a remote mansion in Wales to recuperate. Suffering from terrible nightmares and visions, he suspects the methods of his psychiatrist, Dr. Hal Burns (Julian Sands). His beautiful aunt, Julia (Rachael Stirling) seems to be the only person he can trust – until circumstances make him doubt even her intentions. Based on the novel “The Haunting of Toby Jugg” by Dennis Wheatley.
In HOW TO BE, the young British sensation Robert Pattinson stars as Art, an aspiring musician stuck in a rut. Twenty-something Art is a supermarket worker who has just been dumped by his girlfriend and is forced to move back home to live with his emotionally distant parents. Art is hopeless and depressed until he discovers the best-selling self-help book It's Not Your Fault and spends his inheritance money to hire the book's oddball author, Dr. Levi Ellington, as his live-in life coach to get him through his quarter-life crisis and help him be more normal. Pattinson reaches new heights as an actor as he impressively embodies both Art's self-pitying side and his droll, hilarious wit. The actor also performs on the film's pop-rock soundtrack -- a collection of original songs and classics by artists including The Roches, Captain Beefheart and Love. His performance in HOW TO BE earned the young star Best Actor accolades at the Strasbourg International Film Festival, while debuting director Oliver Irving received the Audience Award at the New Orleans Film Festival. Amanda Bell of Examiner.com called the film completely entrancing and beautiful, adding, Robert Pattinson's character becomes someone you just want to reach out and hug. HOW TO BE's sterling cast also includes Rebecca Pidgeon (The Spanish Prisoner, TV's The Unit) and Michael Irving (Ruth Rendell Mysteries) as Art's parents, Powell Jones (Anna Karenina), Alisa Arnah (Wallander, Jane Eyre) and newcomers Mike Pearce and Johnny White as Art's best friends. The DVD is packed with bonus material: a 20-minute making-of featurette including extended scenes; behind-the-scenes footage and an interview with Robert Pattinson.
http://budurl.com/bigfoot In 1975, the small town of Sublime, Texas had an encounter with a creature so horrifying that it remains legend today: Deep in the woods along the Navidad River, someone or something has left its lair to rip a trail of ferocious carnage through the local population. Is it man, monster or Lone Star myth? And in a rural community commanded by the Bible, corrupted by moonshine and ruled by rifles, can anything stop the vengeance of a beast unleashed? Pass the popcorn and hook that speaker to the driver s side window, raves Film Threat. THE WILD MAN OF THE NAVIDAD has a lot of heart and captures the essence of 60s and 70s grindhouse/drive-in horror!

http://www.twelveinabox.com/ One stately home, two corpses and 12 million cash… They were only 96 hours away from collecting a fortune. It was as simple as that. Then someone dropped dead – and things started to get a bit more complicated… At a school reunion dinner in a remote country mansion, a dozen people are offered the chance to collect a million pounds each. The only catch is that they must all remain on the estate – cut off from the outside world – for 96 hours. As events begin to conspire against them, can they stay united – or will they turn on each other and lose the cash? Twelve in a Box is a tightly orchestrated comedy that barely pauses for breath as it heads towards a ‘Will-they-or-won’t-they-succeed?’ climax. With deaths, sexual intrigue, kidnapping and spiraling levels of farce and confusion, the film follows in the best traditions of British black comedy. Theatrical Release: June 2009 DVD Release Date: 10/20/2009
