5 Must-See Movies in Metro Phoenix This October

We certainly won't judge you if you opt to see Annabelle or any of the classic horror movies screening this October -- it is almost Halloween, after all. However, you should know that there are quite a few great movies coming out this month that don't involve ghoulish dolls or guts exploding out of people -- not that there's anything wrong with that. Music lovers, black comedy fans, and the social media obsessed will certainly have something to see this October, though you seriously can just go watch Halloween at FilmBar. It's not a big deal.
