Top 10 Films to Catch at SXSW 2016
Jack Goes Home
Plays at Drafthouse Ritz on March 14th at midnight, South Lamar Drafthouse on March 15th at 11:15 pm and March 16th at 2:30 pm – MD
What It Is: An ominous feature starring Rory Culkin as a young man who returns home to take care of his mother after she survives a horrific car crash that kills his father. But when he returns home, he stumbles across some dark secrets from their family history.
Why We’re Excited: Culkin is an underappreciated actor and Jack Goes Home looks to be an excellent vehicle for his simmering intensity and moodiness, but beyond that it has a promising visual sense, making it a potential successor to previous SXSW hits like Oculus and The Invitation. The trailer doesn’t give much in the way of details of what the story even is, but the flashback sequences it teases are deeply unsettling. What is shown appears to be on the level of other descents into cinematic insanity, like In the Mouth of Madness and The Shining.

The trip home uncovers secrets buried in his family’s past that involve his friends and even his own identity.
