With the start of the month, too, the movie industry similarly enters a weird time of year, lacking the frights that come with Halloween-centric horror movies as well as the good-natured cheer that comes with Christmas movies.
Still, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of notable movies to look forward to this weekend, like the excellent crime film Missing, the anime extravaganza One Piece Film: Red, and the illuminating documentary Salvatore: Shoemaker of Dreams.
Since first appearing in print back in 1997, One Piece has become one of the best and longest-running manga and anime series in the world of pop culture. Now, One Piece fans can rejoice at seeing the fifteenth latest film related to the franchise — One Piece Film: Red — arriving in theaters.
Cinematic depictions of possessions are practically a genre unto themselves at this point. This Friday, horror fans will be able to see the newest arrival to this very niche subgenre in the form of Prey for the Devil.

What happened to Emmett Till will forever be one of the darkest chapters in our country’s bleak history. His wrongful death was nothing short of a national tragedy — as was the acquittal of the cowards who killed him.
