As you may be able to tell from our Pinterest board, we’re big fans of the holidays. With every change in the season comes a change in what’s available in our favourite shops and, sometimes even better, in options for entertainment. At this time of year we like to go all out for Halloween, and with the help of Hobbycraft and Paperchase it’s easy to get carried away. We feel that one of the best parts of this particular day, however, is the excuse to go to the cinema, and after some serious thought, we’ve decided we’ll be scaring ourselves silly with the following films this year, courtesy of our client, Vue Cinema…
“The Conjuring is a terrifying ‘ghost-invasion’ movie from the director of Saw and Insidious. Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) are real life ‘ghost hunters’, though they’re not too keen on that description. Their most terrifying case, one they have never spoken about before, was the Perron family whose home in Rhode Island was being terrorised by particularly nasty spirits. Can the Warrens deal with an evil witch? And will the whole experience take a deadly toll on psychic Lorraine? The Conjuring is a truly terrifying experience all the worse for its being based on real events.”
“Insidious: Chapter 2 is the horrifying follow-up to the critically acclaimed Insidious from the director of Saw, who takes things to a whole new level. Renai (Rose Byrne) and Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) move with their family hoping to put their past behind them. But when they start hearing voices, seeing ghostly figures and generally experiencing all the terror they were trying to run from, they realise that the family is in grave danger. Can paranormal experts help them retrieve their son, stolen by spirits?Insidious: Chapter 2is a terrifying exercise in ghosts.”
(And one for the kids)
“Monsters University is the inspired prequel to one of the greatest animated movies of all time. Back before they joined Monsters Inc. Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) had to learn the scaring skills they would later use to such brilliant effect and what better place to do that than at Monsters University? But, forced to share a room in the University residence, they are instant deadly enemies until circumstances conspire to bring them together into the force we know and love. Monsters University is a brilliantly funny story of friendship and how a fright can be good for you.”
