2017 Horror Films For This Halloween

My favourite time of year is here. Autumn is the official lead-up to Halloween, and this year I’m hoping to make you fall in love with it like I do. Pumpkins, face paint, thrills and an uncontrollable amount of sweets and chocolate on discount ready for purchase. The perfect excuse to get dressed up. And celebrate everything scary.                       Who wouldn’t love Halloween?…   If going out on the 31st doesn’t appeal to you, and you’d rather have a cosy night in with drinks and good company, then don’t worry…

The legend himself, Tom Hardy, plays James Delaney, an Englishman feared to have died during his time in South Africa. Upon hearing the news that his…

The Jungle Book returns

The Jungle Book returns triumphantly to the big screen in an action-packed, beautifully filmed masterpiece that translates into cinematic gold! When Disney’s trailer for the ‘live-action’ adaptation of the childhood book we all know and love dropped early last year, to say I was excited would be an understatement. But like so many others at the time, I believed that the voice casting for the film seemed a little off.
