THE CAMPAIGN

Since this is an election year, somebody somewhere thought a movie about politicians would be a good idea.  Starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis (from HANGOVER fame), expect a good bit of objectionable content.

LAWLESS

A depression era family of bootleggers fight against corrupt officials who want a cut of the profits.  As the movie title suggests, there is no morality in this story and contains much graphic, objectionable content.

THE POSSESSION

This horror movie tells the story of a young girl who buys a box at a yard sale, only to discover the box is inhabited by an ancient spirit.  We are not sure if the point of the movie is to be wary of yard sales, but it will for sure contain occult material.
