Also let me know in the comments below what you're watching!
Doctor Sleep was only released last year and although didn't do that well at the box office (just over $72 million on a $40 millon budget) it is definitely one to watch.
Years following the events of "The Shining," a now-adult Dan Torrance must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who prey on children with powers to remain immortal.
I actually wasn't a huge fan of The Shining (gasp) and as much as I wanted to like it I just couldn't, Doctor Sleep however had me hooked from the very start. It's almost a stand alone film in itself with a link to The Shining than a direct sequel and it is worth the nearly 3 hour watch. Rebecca Ferguson who plays Rose The Hat in the film is also amazing. It would be great if Stephen King wrote a prequel all about her character as she really is fascinating to watch.
Another film that didn't do that well at the box office ($44 million on a $30 million budget) is Mother! Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem this film is one to mess with your head a little.
A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.
I went into this film not knowing much about it apart from what I had seen in the trailer. It starts off a little slow but the story soon starts to unfold and change very, very quickly. You'll go from being relaxed to on the edge of your seat, gasping, in shock and then looking back on it all wondering what the hell you just watched. But trust me it is worth the ride.
Released in 1989 Heathers stars Winona Ryder and Christian Slater and is a definite classic. If you have not seen it then where have you been? The film is all about Veronica (Ryder) who is just trying to survive high school by hanging around with the three most popular girls in school who also happen to all be called Heather. Then she meets J.D (Slater) and things start to take a very dark (and humorous) turn.
In order to get out of the snobby clique that is destroying her good-girl reputation, an intelligent teen teams up with a dark sociopath in a plot to kill the cool kids.
You will love Heathers and the soundtrack is pretty neat too. A tv show was nearly given the green light in 2018 and was fortunately dropped. This is one film that needs no remake at all.
The Night Eats the World or the original French title La nuit a dévoré le monde follows the story of Sam who goes to a party in Paris and falls asleep in an empty room. With the door closed, fast asleep and alone he has no idea that while he sleeps a Zombie outbreak is happening right outside his door. He wakes the following morning to find everyone dead and he is trapped in the apartment with no where to go and no one to help.
I stumbled across this film on Netflix and thought I would give it a watch and I am so glad I did. It is definitely one of the best Zombie films I have seen recently and also is a little different to the usual fight and survive type of Zombie film we see all the time.
The Train to Busan (Busanhaeng original title) is a Korean Zombie film that is honestly amazing. The story follows Sok-woo who is taking his daughter Soo-ahn on a train journey to Busan. Which would be fine if there wasn't a massive Zombie outbreak happening. The film starts with a newly bitten woman running onto the train and into the toilet. Not long after the train departs she transforms into the undead and all hell breaks out. Imagine being trapped on a fast moving train while one by one each carriage becomes infected. I was gripped the entire time watching this film and cannot wait for the upcoming sequel.
While a zombie virus breaks out in South Korea, passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan.
We all love The Addams Family (and if you don't you're wrong) and the latest animated film is a must watch. It's creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky altogether ooky, it's the Addams Family! Sorry I couldn't help myself... but on a serious note this film is funny, sweet and will hopefully become another classic, just like the original films.
If you're expecting the same vibe as the originals then it's mildly there but if you're going into it expecting a bit of creepy fun then you're in the right place. I really enjoyed this film and it's nice to see The Addams Family on screen once again. What I really like the most about this film though is the fact it honours the original sketches by Charles Addams himself and brings them to life once more.
The eccentrically macabre family moves to a bland suburb where Wednesday Addams' friendship with the daughter of a hostile and conformist local reality show host exacerbates conflict between the families.
The Blackcoat's Daugher (also known as February) is an interesting watch thats for sure. Starring Emma Roberts and Kiernan Shipka, the film focuses on two girls who get left behind at a Catholic Boarding school during Winter Break. But nothing is what it seems...
I would definitely put this in my top 50 films as it really was such a great watch. It leaves you guessing throughout the film and even when it's over you'll be googling to find out more but also satisfied with how it all ends.

If you're missing Halloween lately then you will love this. The Witching Season is a anthology series created by Witching Season Films and includes five short films that will definitely bring a little Halloween into your living room.
The first time I sat down and watched all five shorts I wanted to decorate right away and actually ended up buying a Beistle decoration set just because it was featured so well in the opening titles.
What's more is that Witching Season Films recently released a Halloween atmospheres video for those wanting spooky season a little early. Oh and it's all free! You can buy the anthology film on Blu Ray but for those who have Amazon Prime you can check it out right there too.
Did you know Tim Burtons Sleepy Hollow is 20 years old? The film hit 20 last year! I remember when this film was first released and I am pretty sure as a kid I was terrified, which thankfully grew into a deep love for this film over the years.
Sleepy Hollow follows the story of Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) who is sent to the town of Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of beheadings. The towns people believe it to be the legendary apparition of the Headless Horseman but Crane isn't convinced and believes there is a very easy explanation behind all of it. Little does he know what he is in for.
The film also stars Christina Ricci as Katrina Van Tassel and like always she is fantastic, as is Depp! If you haven't watched this film then Check. It. Out!! It will become one of your instant favourites for sure.
Ginger Snaps is another classic and actually has spawned two sequels. Released in 2000 the film follows sisters Ginger and Brigitte who are leading normal teenage lives until one of them gets bitten by a werewolf... As time goes on Ginger slowly begins to transform and the beast inside starts taking over. Desperate to try and stop it and also find a cure they will do anything it takes to ensure they stay together.
The sequel to this film Ginger Snaps 2 Unleashed is also another one to watch as it's as good, if not better as the original. I recently watched this again and although it hasn't aged well it's still a favourite of mine and one I hope you'll also enjoy.
