Halloween 2016: Movies Round-up [Theatrical]

Halloween: Movies Round-up [Theatrical]

With just over one week to go before Halloween fever sweeps the nation, we have highlighted a mere selection of some of the best big screen Halloween movies and events hitting cinemas across the UK around All Hallows’ Eve.



Out now in cinemas nationwide

It was never just a game.

Once again inviting audiences into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil has rather surprisingly proved itself to be one of the year’s strongest mainstream horrors, breathing some much needed new life into an initially lacklustre franchise.

In 1965 Los Angeles, a widowed mother and her two daughters add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home.  

When the youngest daughter is overtaken by the merciless spirit, this small family confronts unthinkable fears to save her and send her possessor back to the other side.
