The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai
Peter Weller stars as the titular hero, who makes his living as a physicist, neurosurgeon, secret agent and rock star traveling through a comic-book universe with his band of assistants and background musicians. Buckaroo's interdimensional experiments with his new invention, the Operation Overthruster, throw Earth into an alien war, and he finds himself with scant hours to save the world in director W.D. Richter's offbeat film.

The Wickeds
In this campy horror flick, seven teenagers decide to spend Halloween night inside a decaying house that's rumored to be haunted. Their quest for the ultimate scare turns deadly when a pair of grave robbers stop by unannounced, claiming to have a bunch of zombies hot on their trail. What sounds like a prank is anything but when the living dead arrive, out for blood. Justin Alvarez, Anna Bridgforth and Bryan Donoghue star.

The Quiet
A recently orphaned deaf and mute teen learns disturbing facts about her adoptive family in director Jamie Babbitt's visceral drama. After losing her father, Dot (Camilla Belle) goes to live with her dysfunctional godparents (Edie Falco and Martin Donovan) and their rebellious daughter Nina (Elisha Cuthbert). Before long, each is entrusting the silent Dot with shameful secrets they assume will be kept private. But Dot has secrets of her own ...

While driving to the country, urbanites Kim (Patricia Clarkson), George (Jake Weber) and their son Miles (Erik Per Sullivan) get into a car accident when they hit a deer hobbled by ruthless hunters, who complain that the city people killed "their" deer -- and worse, broke two of its antlers. But that's just the beginning of the family's worries: It seems they've also awakened the spirit of Wendigo, a mythical Native American figure.
