South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (Trey Parker, 1999)
The creators of South Park (Matt Stone, Trey Parker) scored a surprising hat-trick with the feature-length version of their hugely popular animated TV series: It was a box office hit, the critics loved it, and they scored a much-deserved Best Original Song Oscar nod for Blame Canada.

Tremors (Ron Underwood, 1999)
Remember the time that Kevin Bacon, Reba McEntire, and the Dad from Family Ties were in a monster movie together about strange seismic activity and weirdo underground creatures that killed people in their small town…? Of course you do! Because that movie was Tremors, and it’s awesome. Also… even more Bacon! Natives of a small isolated town defend themselves against strange underground creatures which are killing them one by one.

Event Horizon (Paul Anderson, 1997)

Starring Sam Neill, Laurence Fishburne, Kathleen Quinlan and Joely Richardson.

Clue (Jonathan Lynn, 1985)

Six guests are invited to a strange house and must cooperate with the staff to solve a murder mystery.
