Don’t believe us? Close your eyes, search your hearts and tell us your deepest, darkest fear...dw we’ll tell you when to stop reading.
Abominable - 11 October
Your biggest fear is: yetis
The cinematic jury has been out on whether or not big foots (big feet?), yetis and other abominable snow creatures are actually scary or if they’re just big, shy cuddle bunnies. This yeti is definitely of the cuddle bunny variety.
Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary - various screenings throughout October
Your biggest fear is: ghosts
Something strange in your neighbourhood = an appropriately spooky premise for a Halloween watch, but this classic 80s horror-comedy is more likely to make you laugh than shock you.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil - 18 October
Your biggest fear is: horned fairies
Maleficent’s back and it looks like she’s still working through some of her humankind issues. As long as you’re not on the receiving end of her fairy wrath, you should be fine. We wouldn’t want to be Michelle Pfieffer though.
Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon - 18 OctoberYour biggest fear is: aliens
Ok so there’s an alien invasion in this animated sequel, but look who’s doing the invading:
A sheep that can cross its arms, however? Terrifying.
The Addams Family - 25 October
Your biggest fear is: goths
They might have a cousin made of hair and a disembodied hand that runs errands for them, but The Addams Family are really just creepy and kooky in a totally family-friendly kind of way.
The Addams Family is out 25 October, find out more here
Terminator: Dark Fate - 23 October
Your biggest fear is: robots
We’re not sure which is scarier: seemingly indestructible robot assassins from the future or the existential crises they pose. Both will keep you up all night after Terminator: Dark Fate.
Countdown - 25 October
Your biggest fear is: technology and...death
Don’t be fooled by the name: this is nothing like the TV show. Instead of a massive clock telling you how long you’ve got to solve an anagram, an app tells you exactly when you’re going to die. You’ve been warned.
Countdown is out 25 October, find out more here
Doctor Sleep - 31 October
Your biggest fear is: mystical powers, unseen dark forces, creepy children, elevators full of blood, the dark, nightmares, The Shining, the shine, Ewan McGregor, sequels, fear itself
It’s the sequel to The Shining. Kind of says it all, doesn’t it? Mysterious messages appearing on walls, a woman who seems to want to eat people’s... breath? Ewan McGregor trying to hold it all together as the kid from The Shining all grown up...if you even plan on going AT ALL, don’t go alone.
