  • The Gallows
  • The Gallows (R)

    The fictitious high school play The Gallows isn't very good, judging from what we see of it during the real horror movie The Gallows. more...
  • The Gambler (R)

    Mark Wahlberg stars in this remake of James Toback's 1974 debut film, as a once-promising novelist whose career has petered out and whose gambling addiction has gotten him into trouble with a fearsome loan shark. more...
  • Gaslight

    George Cukor carefully avoids the obvious effects in telling this story of a husband (Charles Boyer) attempting to drive his wife (Ingrid Bergman) insane; instead, this 1944 film is one of the few psychological thrillers that is genuinely psychological, depending on subtle clues—a gesture, an intonation—to thought and character. more...
  • Get Low (PG-13)

    Robert Duvall is a scruffy backwoods codger, object of fear and gossip in a neighboring town, who strikes a deal with smarmy undertaker Bill Murray to give himself a living funeral so he can eavesdrop on all the stories. more...
  • Get My Gun (NR)

    A pregnant woman must fight for her life when a psychotic stalker wants to take her unborn child. more...
  • Get Out
  • Get Out (R)

    Sketch comedian Jordan Peele (of Comedy Central's Key and Peele) makes his directing debut with a horror movie that sticks closely to genre convention even as its ribbing of white liberals hardens into a social point. more...
  • Getaway (PG-13)

    A former race car driver (Ethan Hawke) comes home one night to learn his wife's been kidnapped; to get her back, he must drive a souped-up sports car through increasingly dangerous situations while a Mabuse-like figure monitors his every move via hidden cameras. more...
  • Ghost Stories
  • Ghost Stories (NR)

    A real layer cake, this horror lark from British TV guys Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman uses a mystery plot to present a trilogy of scary stories, which are then twisted into the narrative frame as if it were a Möbius strip. more...
  • The Ghost Writer (PG-13)

    Because this suspense film was directed by Roman Polanski and centers on a character who's fighting extradition for past crimes, it's bound to get more serious attention than it deserves. more...
  • The Gift
  • The Gift (R)

    This cagey suspense film was originally called "Weirdo," but the ultimate release title, bland as it might seem, is actually closer to the mark: the story is like one of those gift-wrapped boxes with another box inside, and another inside that one. more...
  • The Girl on the Train
  • The Girl on the Train (R)

    Two years (almost to the day) after 20th Century Fox hit the jackpot with David Fincher's Gone Girl (2014), Universal Pictures releases a clone, also adapted from a best-selling mystery novel and trading in the dark secrets of beautiful, upper-class white people. more...
  • The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (R)

    The final installment in the Swedish trilogy based on Stieg Larsson's mega-selling crime novels, this 2009 thriller begins with the rescue of the dragon-tattooed, kickboxing heroine (Noomi Rapace) after she's been shot and buried alive by her uber-villain father and freakish half-brother. more...
