A week of the heebie-jeebies…

Adrenaline seekers, listen up – the new films released in the cinema this week are for you. Horror movies are the topic of this week’s releases and while we don’t typically shy away from horror flicks (a fave is the remake of Evil Dead), the films being released in the cinema this week will make even the bravest movie-goer’s skin crawl. We also get to see the release of a new Adam Driver film and an animation that looks adorable for the faint of heart.

Grab some popcorn and your favourite chocolatey snack and settle in for some jump scares.
