Trailer Thursday!

Posted By on Thu, Sep 30, 2010 at 3:58 PM

This week: The world's most original horror film, a legitimately wonderful film about child vampires, an adoption thriller and a film that critics — not our critic, but some critics — are calling the defining film of the decade (the last one, this one's too early to call). Peep:

CASE 39
Finally! A new plot for a horror movie! Case 39 features a child — a young girl named Lilith — haunted by demons and in need of a’rescuing. Now, that might sound familiar. Maybe it’s somewhat similar to The Exorcist, Rosemary’s Baby, The Omen, Children of the Damned, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Poltergeist I II & III, The Sixth Sense, The Shining, The Ring, Children of the Corn, and The Grudge. But this one’s different: It’s got Bradley Cooper. (TH) Rated R | SHOWTIMES

LET ME IN 
The American remake of the Swedish art house horror hit Let the Right One In is a rarity: a remake that gets it right. A young girl (Chloe Moretz) and her dad (Richard Jenkins) move into a dreary apartment complex, where a young boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) has no friends and hides out from bullies. The catch: She’s a 12-year-old vampire who needs a friend. Grisly violence mix with an unexpected sweetness. (ES) Rated R | SHOWTIMES

LIKE DANDELION DUST
Little 6-year-old Joey is a mild-mannered boy, raised in a well-to-do suburban home. Only one day he and his family find out there’s a problem with his adoption papers: The pregnant mother didn’t trust her incarcerated alcoholic husband, never told him about the child and forged his signature. Now he’s caught between two families, and it’s up to the courts to figure out where he’s going to end up — not necessarily where he belongs. At AMC (DH) Rated PG-13  | SHOWTIMES

THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Director David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) and writer Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, The West Wing) give us their swirling, flashback-filled version of the founding of Facebook in the dorm room of angry Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), who eventually became the youngest billionaire in history. With Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, and Justin Timberlake. (ES) Rated PG-13 | SHOWTIMES
