Admit One 10/1

The first week of October finds a potential Oscar candidate going up against a pair of horror movies.

The Social Network

Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Max Minghella

Directed by: David Fincher

Plot: The history of the creation of Facebook by Mark Zuckerberg.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 98%

Critic Consensus: “Impeccably scripted, beautifully directed, and filled with fine performances, The Social Network is a riveting, ambitious example of modern filmmaking at its finest.”

Let Me In

Starring: Chloe Moretz, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Richard Jenkins, Elias Koteas

Directed by: Matt Reeves

Plot: A shy young boy makes friends with a mysterious girl who turns out to be a vampire, who might be responsible for a string of killings in the area.

RT Freshness: 84%

Critic Consensus: “Similar to the original in all the right ways — but with enough changes to stand on its own — Let Me In is the rare Hollywood remake that doesn’t add insult to inspiration.”

Case 39

Starring: Renee Zellweger, Bradley Cooper, Ian McShane, Jodelle Ferland

Directed by: Christian Alvart

Plot: A social worker saves a young girl from her abusive parents but finds that she is also haunted by evil spirits.

RT Freshness: 22%

Critic Consensus: “Director Christian Alvert has a certain stylish flair, but it’s wasted on Case 39’s frightless, unoriginal plot.”
