Horror Films Hitting Cinemas This October 2017

Somehow, we’re already in October, but what’s scarier than that thought is that both Halloween and Friday 13th are coming up soon!

Horror fans might be pleased to know that to welcome these spooky occasions, local cinemas are soon to be swamped with horror films.

So, to help you plan this month’s cinema trips and scary movie nights, here’s a list of some of the horror films coming to cinemas this October.

Rating: 15
Directed by: Tomas Alfredson
Written by: Hossein Amini, Peter Straughan
Starring: Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson Chloe Sevigny

Based on the bestselling book, this film follows an investigation into a missing woman, but there are some unexpected twists and turns along the way. What starts as a detective film, quickly spirals into a horrifying film about an unusual serial killer.

The Ritual

Rating: 15
Directed by: David Bruckner

This film has the tagline ‘they should have gone to Vegas’ so you can bet that this isn’t going to be a happy-go-lucky film.

Follow four friends into the forest land of rural Sweden, where they find a creepy hut. This is where the story really starts, as they start to suspect they’re being followed. The biggest question of this film though: who, or what, is following them?
