Helix: Season 1
Investigating a viral outbreak at an Arctic bioresearch station, CDC researchers learn that they—and, eventually, mankind—are totally screwed. From Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald D. Moore, so it’s nice and claustrophobic. (Sony)

Two buds traveling the world filming a web series find their trip cut short when one of them hooks up with a vampire in Paris and, upon realizing that he can’t die and must feed, becomes a vigilante Dexter vampire. There’s your web series. (CBS Films)

No Vacancy
Seven friends en route to Las Vegas are forced to spend the night in a roadside motel and, sure enough, they’re soon being tortured and killed. Yet another scenario in which a AAA membership would have come in real handy. (Lionsgate)

Oy Vey! My Son is Gay!
Long Island parents’ anxiety over their sons coming out if the closet(s) together only gets worse when the boys decide to adopt. The one film in which you’ll see Bruce Vilanch and Carmen Electra sharing screen time. Hopefully. (Breaking Glass)

Rockabilly Zombie Weekend
A couple’s rockabilly-themed wedding is ruined when a West Nile Virus outbreak spreads swarms of zombie-spawning mosquitoes (sure, could happen). Featuring the way-out sounds of Slip & the Spinouts and The Dive Bar Stalkers! (Green Apple)
