Can a horror movie be romantic? Beautiful? “Spring” - ostensibly a monster movie - strives to be something different. It challenges preconceptions and examines some of humanity’s deepest mysteries.

Directed by Justin Benson, “Spring” starts out with a handful of familiar genre elements and cunningly molds them into something unexpected and entrancing. Not only is the film surprisingly effective, it also features authentic dialogue and earnest performances from its small cast.

“Spring” revolves around Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci), a young American who books a flight to Europe following an incident that might cause him difficulty with law enforcement. After he arrives, he meets the beautiful but mysterious Louise (Nadia Hilker) in a small town on the Italian coast. There is an instant connection between the two. Over a matter of days, Evan begins to suspect that Louise may be hiding something from him.

At the mention of the name Cinderella, most people envision one specific rendering of that famous fairy tale persona: For more than half a century, Walt Disney's depiction of the character in the classic 1950 animated film "Cinderella" has been the one most American audiences associate with the tale of "The Little Glass Slipper."

The story dates back to at least to the 1630s. As with most folktales, there are a number of variations and alternative storylines. It is Disney's version, though, with which most children are acquainted today.

TAMPA - Gasparilla International Film Festival, running March 24-29, recently announced its 2015 film selections.

One of the feature film selections - “American Hostage” - was written, produced and directed by local filmmaker Mounir Chakor, founder of Filmanchor LLC.

The 100-minute film pulls back the curtains on a terrorist plot centered on a group of terrorists holding two American soldiers hostage on U.S. soil. The film, shot mostly in South Tampa near MacDill Air Force Base, features actors from the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Sarasota area.

With his new film "Maps to the Stars," director David Cronenberg offers viewers a mesmerizing vision of the affectations and the immorality of the denizens dwelling in Hollywood's dream factory.

Cronenberg’s reputation has been established by a uniquely personal body of work which includes films such as “Shivers,” “Rabid,” “The Brood,” “Scanners,” “Videodrome,” “The Fly,” “Dead Ringers,” “Naked Lunch” and “Crash.” Following a string of low-budget horror outings that earned him a cult following, Cronenberg avoided being pigeon-holed into the creature feature genre and forged a career as a master filmmaker known for fielding provocative, intense cinema. Much of his work reflects dark and disturbing themes and is inhabited by characters exhibiting various deformities and abnormalities.

Dar Williams, Frdiay, March 27, 7:30 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. Tickets start at $30. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com.

The American pop folk singer-songwriter possesses a reporter’s keen eye and a fiction writer’s feel for nuance. She takes an honest, objective look at life – her own and that of those around her.

Once a neo-folkie influenced by Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and Judy Collins, she is now a seasoned artist with an uncanny ability to understand the characters in her songs and treat them with unbiased compassion. She also examines her own life with piercing honesty and humor.

Through it all, her songs reflect her unwavering faith in the ability of people to make a better world. Recurrent themes in Williams’ songs are religion, adolescence, gender issues, loss and humor. Her biggest hits include “Iowa,” “Summer Child” and “As Cool as I Am.”
