Black Butterfly (Lionsgate Premiere)
On limited theatrical release now

Antonio Banderas (The Skin I Live In) and Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) are about to find out the “worst scares come from chance meetings” in riveting thriller Black Butterfly from Brian Goodman (What Doesn’t Kill You), a remake of Christian Faure’s 2008 film Papillon Noir. Set on the outskirts of a remote mountain town amid a series of murderous abductions, a reclusive writer attempting to save his career encounters a hitchhiker with a dark and twisted past.

 

Berlin Syndrome (Entertainment One)
On limited theatrical release now

Holiday romances aren’t all they’re cracked up to be in Berlin Syndrome, the next feature film from acclaimed director Cate Shortland (Lore). Alone and adrift in Berlin, Australian photographer Clare finds herself hypnotized by charismatic local Andi. Passion soon turns into possession as Clare comes to realize Andi has no intentions of ever letting her leave. Adapted by Shaun Grant (The Snowtown Murders) from Melanie Joosten’s 2011 novel of the same name. Stars Teresa Palmer (Lights Out) and Max Riemelt (The Wave).

 

The Here After (Zentropa International)
On limited theatrical release now

Can someone responsible for the “ultimate crime” return to normal life after being released from prison? This is the very question posed by Magnus von Horn, making his directorial debut with The Here After. Billed as a “powerful drama”, the film is nothing short of a study into human nature itself. Leading the cast is newcomer Ulrik Munther.

 

Long Strange Trip (Amazon Video)
On video on-demand now

From director Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story) comes the Long Strange Trip, an “epic exploration” of the Grateful Dead, the rock-and-roll success story no one expected. They’ve got one thing right – it’s certainly an epic, clocking in at four hours long. The documentary takes us behind the scenes, featuring candid interviews with the band, road crew, family members, and the fans themselves. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas), it is sure to be a must-see for all Deadheads.
