Movies This Week – 17-10-18
There are more than a few horror movies being released as we prepare for Halloween! Sadly not all of them are good. After the many highs of last week, it’s a slow week. Still, there’s enough good ones in the cinema to keep you occupied. If you’re a fan of the slasher genre, there is a treat with a new version of Halloween that follows on direclty from the first film, ignoring the many sequels! How anyone could ignore Halloween 3 is beyond me…
