You’re in for a treat here as AB presents a free pre-screening of The Antique, a spooky film that the studio is audience-testing before it hits theaters nationwide. The film, which runs just 65 minutes, is a horror story about a momma’s boy who starts to see and hear things after he finds an antique picture frame. Everything gets a little bit creepier as the main character wonders whether he is going insane or a ghost is actually haunting him and his family.

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law star as Holmes and Watson in this frenetic and brawny update of the well-known detective.

Even though the original Boondock Saints never needed a sequel due to its status as one of the greatest cult classic movies ever made, director Troy Duffy chose to make one. The sequel is another revenge thriller, bringing the MacManus brothers back to Boston on a killing spree after their priest is murdered by mobsters. Fun fact: This flick is arguably tamer than the original, with the F-word being used 136 times, as opposed to 247 in the first Boondock Saints.
