Fall is in the air and October is here! It’s now officially acceptable to assault yourself with pumpkin spice everything. Go forth, my friends, and indulge in all your favorite fall activities. Rake those lovely autumn leaves, go apple picking, buy a questionable Halloween hat. And once you’re done planning your lovely vacation trip to Salem check out my October Movies On Demand. Socializing with irate dead witches can wait, and I’ve got my top five picks right here!

Kat’s Top Five Movies On Demand:


5. EARTH TO ECHO, Premieres October 21 - KIDS PICK
If your kids aren’t ready for THE SHINING this Halloween season why not opt for a family fun sci-fi adventure that’s sure to give you some serious E.T. flashbacks.
PG, SciFi/Family, Teo Halm, Brian 'Astro' Bradley, Reese Hartwig, Ella Wahlestedt

4. LISTEN UP PHILIP, Premieres October 21 INDIE PICK
Jason Schwartzman stars as a narcissistic writer that uses his idol’s isolated home as a refuge in this darkly hilarious film.
TV-MA, Drama, Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss, Krysten Ritter, Jonathan Pryce

3. RUDDERLESS, Premieres October 17 - MUSIC PICK
An indie musical drama about a grieving father that forms a rock band after he comes across his deceased son’s brilliant music.
R, Drama/Music, Billy Crudup, William H. Macy, Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, Felicity Huffman, Laurence Fishburne, Same Day As Theatrical Release

2. THE PURGE: ANARCHY, Premieres October 21 - HORROR PICK
Everyone needs a little horror in October, and nothing says horror quite like a 12-hour period of pure murderous chaos.
R, Thriller, Frank Grillo, Zach Gilford

1. X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Premieres October 28 TOP PICK
The X-Men are back, and this time for a “change history” plot and a whole lot of Hugh Jackman. Patrick Stewart as Professor X enlists the help of his X-Men to send Wolverine back in time to stop Mystique from killing a man that’s paramount to their future. Two Charles Xaviers and two Magnetos are only the beginning of the beautiful insanity of this film.

Throw in all of your favorite past and present mutants and time altering shenanigans, and you’ve got a franchise hit. I now reiterate my sentiment that Marvel is, in fact, taking over the world.
PG-13, Action/Adventure, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen, Evan Peters, Halle Berry, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page

That’s October team! Be sure to check out all of the other great Movies on Demand this month. Happy watching!
