    This weekend, your best bet is to steer clear of "Need for Speed" and seek out a few indies instead.

    SXSW Review: Vampires Get Real in Hilarious Mock Doc 'What We Do In the Shadows'

    It’s hard out there for a vampire. Sunlight’s a (literal) pain, dining on human blood can get messy, and primping for a night out on the town is tricky when you can’t see your own reflection in a mirror.

    In 2007 French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo released "Inside," a French horror film about a pregnant woman who is violently targeted by an unknown intruder.

    Review: ‘Need For Speed’ Starring Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots & Dominic Cooper
