Is anyone at a loss for what to do for Valentine's Day tomorrow? Well there are several movies you may want to consider... The Alamo Drafthouse will be celebrating the day with The Bride of Frankenstein screening tomorrow, the New Parkway will be showing Teeth on Friday, and the Roxie will show The Lure all weekend! Not only that, but we're also getting a new release this week. The only showtimes listed are in the East bay but I'm confident that will change as the week progresses.

This is the closing week for SF Indie Fest, so be sure to check out the last showtimes and try to make it out to a couple of them. Chances are the film makers will be the to answer any questions you may have.

Drama/ Mystery (Rotten Tomatoes)
The story follows a mysterious loner, a stranger to all, whose activities and workings remain meticulously outside the law. He is currently in the process of completing a job and trusts no one, while his objectives initially remain unrevealed.

The film uses no names and refers to all characters by description and appearances only.
