“Disturbing Behavior” (1998): Here’s a movie for every kid who resented that group of his peers in high school who just seemed a little too perfect. You remember them. They always got the approval of teachers and other adults. They always looked great. They were always held up as an example. Young James Marsden, who’s just transferred to a new school after his brother’s suicide, gets drawn into the group of outsiders (led by Nick Stahl) who think there’s something sinister going on with these goldbricking successful kids. Since it’s a movie, you know he’s right. The excellent cast, which includes Ethan Embry, Steve Railsback, Katie Holmes, Bruce Greenwood and William Sadler, sells the fairly lurid concept. This is a naughty, guilty pleasure, and a good reminder that Mr. Marsden has been around for quite a while!

“2:22” (2017): An alternative title to this silly but entertaining spooky romp could be “That Darned Supernova!” Handsome hotshot traffic controller Michiel Huisman has a very bad day at work when a ripple from the interstellar event causes him to almost collide two very large and very full airplanes. Then things just get weirder — he notices uncanny repetitions in his daily routine. Is he in a time loop? Is he time traveling? Is he haunted? Whatever it is, it sure seems to have something to do with a shootout on the main concourse of the iconic Grand Central Terminal in Midtown Manhattan. Can he get to the bottom of it before he loses his mind?
