Trailer roundup for films that have been released over the past few weeks. I’m not so sure they deserve their own individual articles, so I’ve stuffed them all into this one.
The Arbors follows a reclusive locksmith struggling to keep ties with his younger brother. His life takes an unsettling turn after finding a strange small creature and forming a mysterious connection. After a string of unexplained killings, the creature’s true nature is soon revealed… And it seems very hungry.
Without warning, millions of mysterious alien “doors” suddenly appear around the globe. In a rush to determine the reason for their arrival, mankind must work together to understand the purpose of these cosmic anomalies. Bizarre incidences occurring around the sentient doors leads humanity to question their own existence and an altered reality as they attempt to enter them. The film is directed by three filmmakers, each with a different perspective: a ragtag band of high school students discover a door for the first time, volunteers explore the parallel reality beyond the threshold, a lonesome hermit manages the seemingly impossible: establishing communication with a door.
The cast includes Josh Peck, Lina Esco, Wilson Bethel, Kyp Malone, and David Hemphill. Epic will release Doors in select US theaters on March 19th
The film tells the story of an ambitious young woman who is invited onto a submarine by an eccentric entrepreneur. This is very clearly a fictional version of the horrifying true story of eccentric entrepreneur Peter Madsen, who murdered a young woman on his submarine. This was also turned into a doc last year called Into The Deep.
The cast includes Rebecca Finch, Michael Wagner, Portia Booroff, and Simon Rhys-Jones. High Octane Pics will debut the film direct-to-VOD in the US starting March 2nd.
The film is based on co-writer/director Jill Gevargizian’s award-winning short film of the same name. A lonely hairstylist becomes obsessed with the lives of her clients and descends into murderous madness, working as a serial killer by night and collecting their scalps. But one day she tries to leave her deadly side behind, only to “discover that repressing your deadly desires is easier said than done.”
The cast includes Najarra Townsend, Brea Grant, Laura Kirk, Kyle Ament, Millie Milan, and Sarah McGuire. Arrow will release The Stylist streaming on March 1st.
A “success story” real estate developer returns to his old Philly neighborhood and ends up obligated to stay to help ensure his parents’ ailing family business gets back on course.

The cast includes Jeremy Piven, Taryn Manning, Bruce Dern, Zach McGowan, Jamie Kennedy, and Jack McGee. IFC Films will debut Last Call in select US theaters and on VOD starting March 19th.
Dutch introduces a player who will use any means necessary to dominate the streets and beyond. For Bernard James, Jr. aka “Dutch”, survival is the ultimate score and power is the deadliest high of all. There isn’t an angle he can’t work or a woman he can’t seduce. Then when he gains control of an African drug lord’s stolen heroin business, Dutch quickly makes it the most feared drug empire on the East Coast. Naturally, there are now plenty of enemies vowing to take him down, including a vengeful Mafia heir, an ambitious D.A., and a conscience-stricken former friend.
The cast includes Lance Gross, Jeremy Meeks, Macy Gray, Gunna, Natasha Marc, Tyrin Turner, Melissa Williams, Markice Moore, and Michael Blackson. Faith Media Dist. will debut Dutch in select US theaters starting March 12th.
