This month’s departing lineup includes a diverse array of films, ranging from a feminist twist on the Dracula tale to a gripping sci-fi romance and a modern horror masterpiece.

Thompson and written by Blair Butler, the film follows Evie, who uncovers her family’s dark vampiric history during a nightmarish survival game. Starring Nathalie Emmanuel, Thomas Doherty, and Stephanie Corneliussen, this modern rendition of Dracula promises unexpected twists and turns that keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Moving on to the heartfelt sci-fi romance “Starman” (1984), directed by John Carpenter, the film tells the story of an alien assuming the form of a widow’s deceased husband. Jeff Bridges delivers a touching performance as the extraterrestrial being, while Karen Allen shines as the grieving widow forming an unexpected bond with him. As they navigate a journey pursued by government agents, “Starman” explores themes of love and companionship in a unique and captivating way.

For fans of action-packed thrillers, “Columbiana” (2011) offers a riveting storyline centered around Cataleya, a skilled assassin seeking vengeance for her parents’ murder. Directed by Olivier Megaton, the film stars Zoe Saldana in a powerful performance as Cataleya, showcasing both physical prowess and emotional depth. With a blend of high-octane action and a compelling narrative of retribution, “Columbiana” delivers a gripping cinematic experience.

Spike Lee’s crime thriller “Inside Man” (2006) takes viewers on a suspenseful journey through a meticulously planned bank heist. Starring Denzel Washington as Detective Keith Frazier and Clive Owen as the cunning robber Dalton Russell, the film unfolds into a tense standoff filled with hidden agendas and unexpected twists. Jodie Foster’s portrayal of a mysterious power broker adds another layer of complexity to the narrative, making “Inside Man” a powerhouse of ensemble acting and gripping storytelling.

For horror enthusiasts, “X” (2022) by Ti West offers a chilling tale set in rural Texas, where an adult film crew faces unexpected horrors during a shoot. Featuring Mia Goth, Brittany Snow, Jenna Ortega, and Scott Mescudi, the film-within-a-film delves into themes of individualism and self-discovery against a backdrop of escalating tension and violence. Goth’s performance adds depth to the narrative, making “X” a must-watch for those seeking a thought-provoking and intense horror experience.
