2013: The Best Soundtracks
Some people—a convenient straw man, for instance—might argue that the days of the movie soundtrack are numbered. “From & Inspired By The Motion Picture” releases are less and less common, it's hard to find music videos for specially written singles that feature footage from the movie in the way that was so common in the 1990s (thank God), and in the iTunes and YouTube era, you can find the one song that you love from a movie without needing to pick up a whole CD of stuff you don't care about.

Looking for an adrenaline fix this weekend? Perhaps you're thinking about extreme sporting, a long run, or riding roller coasters. All good choices, and we'd like to suggest another. Head over to your local multiplex, where an assortment of shocking, dynamic, unearthly films are sure to get your pulse racing and breathing shallow. From the blood-spattered horror of the "Evil Dead" reboot to the chase sequences in Robert Redford's newest political conspiracy picture to a demonic possession tale and a story about cannibalism, this slate of releases guarantees your heart will be beating as hard and fast as your brain. Oh, and then there's the naked Norwegian chick with a lion's tale (who probably has sinister intentions).

The producers behind the acclaimed “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and Antonio Campos, the director of the 2008 indie “Afterschool,” are back with “Simon Killer,” an unsettling character study set in Paris which premiered at Sundance last year. The film gathered strong buzz at the festival, with IFC Films picking up the distribution rights, but its theatrical release has been held off until this year. Now we finally have a trailer to coincide with its upcoming release.

This time last year, "Martha Marcy May Marlene" was the toast of Sundance, an impossibly tense drama that, even by the end of 2011, still stood tall as one of the year's best films. Last January, "Afterschool" helmer Antonio Campos was in Park City in his capacity as a producer (he's one third of Borderline Films along with 'Martha Marcy' director Sean Durkin and Josh Mond), but twelve months later, he's back as director, with another intense character study, "Simon Killer."
