Adapted from Paula Hawkin’s bestselling novel of the same name, The Girl on the Train is the first of four entertaining films hitting shelves today. Starring Emily Blunt, the thriller follows an alcoholic whose obsession with a strange woman has her life spiraling out of control.
For some thrills on the more supernatural side, Ouija: Origin of Evil is the prequel to 2014’s Ouija and follows a mother (Elizabeth Reaser) whose faux-séance business unwittingly invites a malevolent spirit into the body of her youngest daughter (Lulu Wilson).
Rounding out your binge-worthy choices are the comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses, which has a suburban couple (Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher) caught in a dangerous mission with their too-perfect new neighbors (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot), and the dystopian action thriller Death Race 2050, which centers around a government-run race that leaves behind a lot of (human) roadkill.
