(NR) (106 min.) A marriage hits the skids during a road trip. Meanwhile, news reports of an escaped murderer and the appearance of a silent hitchhiker complicate matters in Cedric Kahn's sexual thriller. Shown with English subtitles. Sexual situations, violence, alcohol abuse. _ Tampa Theatre
(PG-13) (105 min.) Michael Keaton plays a widower whose dead wife speaks to him through radio static. That might be okay, but other, not-so-dearly departed folks also want to contact the mortal world. Violence, disturbing images, profanity. _ Citrus Park 20, Muvico Centro Ybor 20, Muvico Starlight 20, University 16, Veterans Expressway 24, Westshore 14, Regency 20, Tri-City 8, Woodlands Square 20, Muvico Palm Harbor 10, Seminole 8, Baywalk 20, Port Richey Hollywood 18, Cinema 6, Zota Beacon 10, Crystal River Mall 9, Ocala Hollywood 16, Oakmont 8, Royal Palm 20
