Friday’s openings: humor and horror

Laughs and shivers will be on tap when Friday comes around, according to the national movie-release schedule. The main openings will be:

"Crawl": When a Category 5 hurricane approaches Florida, a woman (Kaya Scodelario) trying to save her father has to deal with more than high winds and rising waters. Beware the bite.

"Stuber": When an Uber driver named Stu (Kumail Nanjiani) gives a ride to a cop (Dave Bautista) in pursuit of a killer, he faces a night of comic adventure. The experience gives his humdrum life a … wait for it … lift.

And at the Magic Lantern:

"Indian Horse": A native boy forced by his teachers to ignore his Ojibway heritage finds solace in that traditional Canadian sport, ice hockey. But his past never stops haunting him.

As usual, I'll update when area theaters finalize their bookings.
