With a similar concept to the second season of American Horror Story, directors Bryan Ortiz, Bryan Ramírez and Kerry Valderrama don’t make a lasting impression in the genre. The trilogy starts off intriguing, but strains to find the right sinister storytelling devices to make a real impact. 7pm Fri, June 21, at Santikos Palladium.

THE SYMPHONY OF SILENCE

As a call to arms, filmmaker Cedric Thomas Smith’s heart is in the right place. The film, about a gay teenager who is bullied by his brother and others, captures teenage cruelty well but the melodramatic script drowns out the more effective parts of the conventional narrative. Actor Anthony Guajardo gives a believable performance as the bully brother. 9:15pm Sat, June 22, at Santikos Embassy 14.
