It’s been awhile since going to and sitting down inside a theater was the norm. While we do our best to stay safe, here are a few upcoming films to look out for.

Jack (John Reynolds) and Su (Sunita Mani) are a hip Brooklyn couple who, like many of their friends, find themselves dependent on technology and unable to put down their phones. Fearing their mindless scrolling may impact their connection with each other, they seize the chance to head to an isolated cabin in the woods, vowing to unplug from the outside world for a week. Sheltered from texts and push notifications, they are blissfully unaware that the planet is under attack. As strange events unfold, the couple must figure out a way back to civilization—or what’s left of it.

This November, on Friday the 13th, prepare to get Freaky with a twisted take on the body-swap movie when a teenage girl switches bodies with a serial killer. Millie (Kathryn Newton) is just trying to survive the bloodthirsty halls of Blissfield High. But when she becomes the target of The Butcher (Vince Vaughn), her town’s infamous serial killer, her senior year becomes the least of her worries. When The Butcher’s mystical dagger causes him and Millie to wake up in each other’s bodies, Millie has just 24 hours to get her body back before she’s trapped as a middle-aged maniac forever. Problem is, she now looks like a towering psychopath, while The Butcher looks like her and has brought his appetite for carnage to Homecoming. From writer-director Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day) comes a pitch-black horror-comedy about a slasher, a senior, and the brutal truth about high school
