January was once known as the month where bad horror movies went to die, but 2017 completely changed that thinking. This month sees two spine-tingling flicks coming to the Camana Bay Cinema: Another installment in the “Insidious” series and the downright creepy “Winchester.”
There’s plenty of action for people keen on the genre, including a female-driven “Proud Mary”; “The Commuter” with bona fide man-on-a-mission Liam Neeson; and “Den of Thieves.”
Rounding out the lineup is an animated film from Spain – “Tad Jones: The Hero Returns” – and the much-anticipated Steven Spielberg movie “The Post,” starring powerhouses Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.
