A burger legend, a vampire, a kidnapper and an evil entity land on Channel 100 this April
No matter what your cinematic tastes, there’s always something new to discover on Rogers On Demand (Channel 100). Check out these four films in April.
The Bye Bye Man
Director Stacy Title – who helmed the terrifically dark 1995 comedy The Last Supper (starring, among others, Cameron Diaz, Bill Paxton and Courtney B. Vance) – has moved squarely into the horror genre with this sure-to-be-nightmare-inducing film about a sinister force that compels ordinary people to commit heinous crimes.
This fascinating biopic from director John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks) stars Michael Keaton as Ray Croc, the real-life entrepreneurial salesman who gradually turned McDonald’s from a one-off California burger joint run by a pair of brothers (John Carroll Lynch and Nick Offerman) into a global fast-food phenomenon raking in billions of dollars.
Have you been wondering what M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) has been up to lately? Well, here’s your answer: he wrote and directed this chilling, atmospheric thriller about a young man with dissociative-identity disorder (James McAvoy, in a tour-de-force performance) who kidnaps three teenaged girls and holds them hostage.
Underworld: Blood Wars
Heavy on style but a bit light on substance, the fifth film in the vampires-vs.-werewolves saga is nonetheless entertaining. This time around, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) finds herself pursued by both species, who each desperately want access to her daughter’s über-powerful blood in order to strengthen their respective forces.
Available on Rogers On Demand on April 25.
