Triple bill of psychological thrillers. 'Hard Candy' (2005) is a provocative thriller from director David Slade. For three weeks, 14-year-old Hayley Stark (Ellen Page) has been chatting on-line with 'Lensmaster319', a 32-year old fashion photographer called Jeff (Patrick Wilson). The two agree to meet at a coffee shop called Nighthawks and they hit it off, despite the massive age difference. Hayley appears to flirt with Jeff, and Jeff generally restrains himself, even admitting that he must wait four years before he can be with her. But his reservations are apparently not enough to decline when Hayley all but invites herself over to his house. It's not long before Jeff's underage guest is pouring drinks and posing provocatively for an impromptu photo shoot. As the evening's questionable activities take a decidedly sordid slant and the raptorial Jeff appears poised to strike, a sudden turn of events finds that his apparent victim has had a plan of her own from the very beginning. 'Right at Your Door' (2006) is a topical drama from first-time director Chris Gorak. As the sun rises on another day in Los Angeles, Brad (Rory Cochrane) sends his wife Lexi (Mary McCormack) off to work with a kiss and a smile. When the media begins reporting on the detonation of a bomb within the city limits and a potentially toxic cloud covers the LA basin in ash, Brad enlists the aid of nearby handyman Alvaro (Tony Perez) in making his home as airtight as possible while worriedly awaiting the return of his wife. With roads closed, telephone lines jammed, and reports of multiple explosions pouring in from the media, the panic and isolation of the tragedy begins to take its toll on the horrified community. In 'The Mothman Prophecies' (2002), journalist John Klein (Richard Gere) finds some strange sketchings of a moth-like creature in his wife's notebook shortly after she dies in mysterious circumstances. Years later, after an unusual encounter in the town of Point Pleasant, Klein begins to find further evidence of this creature. With the help of local police officer Connie Mills (Laura Linney), he soon discovers that the appearance of the 'mothman' has been previously associated with impending disasters. But what particular fate could be threatening Point Pleasance, and can Klein find out before it's too late?
