Film Fan Fridays for Friday October 26, 2007!

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday October 26, 2007! I hope you had a great week, I've been spending mine by watching scary movies at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, which just closed last night. If scary movies are your bag, I'd highly recommend checking it out next year, it was a wild ride!

Our limited releases this week include Rails & Ties the directorial debut of Allison Eastwood (Clint Eastwood's daughter), Kenneth Branagh's latest Sleuth, documentary where the title tells you all you need to know 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama and finally Control, the biopic on Joy Divisions frontman, Ian Curtis which is my pick of the bunch this week.

We have only 2 wide releases this week: Dan in Real Life starring Steve Carell and the only scary film of the bunch just in time for Halloween Saw IV. How they make a new Saw film almost yearly is beyond me.

Have a happy Halloween!
