IFC Films has two nifty new titles coming out at the end of the month.
Why wait?
Here's a preview . . .
After a mysterious and bloody massacre in her isolated country house leaves her parents and younger brother dead, 11-year-old Neve (Missy Keating) is taken by police to friends of the family to be looked after. When Neve tries to explain that an evil force within the house caused the deaths, she's met with disbelief from both the authorities and her new family. But before long it becomes apparent that whatever killed her family has followed Neve to her new home, and soon she and all those around her are in mortal danger of some malevolent power that seems to be tied to the unfortunate girl. The pulse-pounding Dark Touch skillfully blends elements of the paranormal thriller with the sadly more earthly horrors faced by the most innocent among us. The IFC Midnight theatrical release, written and directed by Marina de Van was an Official Selection at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. Chill(ing) out.

In the thoughtful and charming A Perfect Man, a womanizer inadvertently falls back in love with his wife when she pretends to be another woman. James (Liev Schreiber) and Nina (Jeanne Tripplehorm) seem to have a perfect marriage. But below the surface, miscommunication is gnawing at their relationship. When Nina catches James cheating (yet again), she makes a very public and humiliating break from him. As James laments the way he has treated his wife and how he has thrown away everything they built, he begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious woman, who discusses with him his reasons for cheating. Soon a new connection begins to grow between James and the caller, who is in fact Nina using a foreign accent. But is it too late to repair their old romance? A Perfect Man is a mesmerizing examination of relationships and the possibility of recovering what was lost.
