A grieving mother and a demonic sister do some killin' in this week's multiplex offerings, while art-house fare includes a contemplative queer coming-of-age drama.

Jennifer Garner (pictured) transforms from suburban mom to badass angel of vengeance in Peppermint, which never bothers to explain how.

David Riedel explains that the evil presence in the Conjuring spinoff The Nun adds up to a whole lot of nothing.

Eric D. Snider praises the lovely heartbreak in We the Animals' story of brothers fending for themselves after their parents' separation

MaryAnn Johanson finds the high-toned thriller Custody ignoring the all-too-real nature of its abusive ex-husband villain.

In this week's feature, Salt Lake City native Lindsay Pulsipher discusses starting her acting career in Utah and playing a military widow in God Bless the Broken Road.
