Movies to watch out for the remainder of February

February 18 is loaded.

February tends to be one of the slower movie months of the year, and 2022 was no different. That being said, there were some strong releases that varied from the expected romantic comedies to some fun science fiction. The back half of the month has some interesting releases, including a series of horror films and a video game adaptation. Here are the ones that sound the most fun.

A Banquet (February 18: Select theaters, digital, VOD)

Widowed mother Holly (Sienna Guillory) is radically tested when her teenage daughter Betsey (Jessica Alexander) experiences a profound enlightenment and insists that her body is no longer her own, but in service to a higher power. Bound to her newfound faith, Betsey refuses to eat but loses no weight. In an agonizing dilemma, torn between love and fear, Holly is forced to confront the boundaries of her own beliefs.

Studio 666 (February 25: Select theaters)

The Foo Fighters move into an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll history to record their much anticipated 10th album, “Medicine at Midnight”. Once in the house, Dave Grohl finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band. Horror has an illustrious history when paired with rock, and this sounds like a promising addition.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (February 18: Netflix)

Legacy sequels have become more popular over the course of the past few years. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the most infamous movies of all time and a direct sequel is a welcome addition from fans. But will it be like 2018’s awesome Halloween or 2021’s awful Halloween Kills? Influencers looking to breathe new life into a Texas ghost town encounter Leatherface, the legendary killer who wears a mask of human skin.

The Cursed (February 18: Theaters)

This movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year as Eight for Silver. Fans of werewolf movies will be impressed – and frightened – by this fresh take on the sub genre. In the late 1800s, a man arrives in a remote country village to investigate an attack by a wild animal but discovers a much deeper and sinister force that has the manor and its townspeople in its grip.

Uncharted (February 18: In Theaters)

Uncharted is one of the most popular video game franchises of all time. Based on the prequel storyline from the Naughty Dog video game, the story is focused on the young thief Drake, and his first encounter with the professional rogue, Sullivan. Video game movies have been a mixed bag, with the vast majority not being great. From the looks of the trailer, this one seems to have captured the adventurous spirit of the game.
