Movie Lounge – October 19

The week’s 10 best-sounding movies, ranked strictly by how much they might be worth seeing. A couple of overlapping festivals are happening this week: the Mystic Film Festival runs this weekend, the Vortex Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Fest runs all week, and Pawtucket’s Mill City Haunts will show horror classics through 10/27.

Note: at one reader’s request, FREE! screenings are now more prominently highlighted in blue.
