Frightening Films This Halloween at Showcase
It’s officially scary season!
With Halloween soon to be upon us, we thought we’d give you a little run down of the frightening films we’re bringing to you over the next couple of weeks.
Starting with the one most appropriate for this time of year, Halloween. On a cold Halloween night in 1963, six year old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith. He was sentenced and locked away for 15 years. But on October 30, 1978, while being transferred for a court date, a 21-year-old Michael Myers steals a car and escapes Smith's Grove. He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he looks for his next victims.
We’re bringing this Flashback film on October 31 to you for just £5 a ticket.

THE EXORCIST (DIRECTOR’S CUT)

Winner of 1973 Oscars® for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound Mixing, The Exorcist remains one of the most shocking and gripping movies in the history of cinema and is a regular feature on lists of the scariest movies ever made.

1996's Scream introduced budding horror audiences to the newest slasher icon in Ghostface, a masked menace wreaking havoc in the fictional town of Woodsboro, California. 24 years later, we're bringing Ghostface back to the big screen.
Scream focuses on Sidney, a seemingly normal teenager who gets targeted by Ghostface a year after the brutal death of her mother. After some of her friends fall victim to the masked murderer, Sidney struggles with who to trust. Along with reporter Gale Weathers (Cox) and the local deputy Dewey Riley (Arquette), Sidney soon learns the person behind the Ghostface mask is closer to her than she first thought.

THE CRAFT: LEGACY
Anyone who knows anything about horror, will know that Blumhouse has produced countless terrifying films such as Get Out, Halloween and Paranormal Activity. There's no wonder we're so excited to show you 2020's Blumhouse release, The Craft: Legacy.
This reboot of the iconic 1996 classic The Craft, follows teenager Hannah as she and her mother move to a new area to be with her stepfather and brothers. Hannah starts a new school where she befriends Tabby, Lourdes and Frankie, quickly becoming the fourth member of their clique. What Hannah doesn’t know, however, is that her involvement with the trio will unleash great power amongst them all, and it seems that the teenage witches might get more than they bargained for as they learn about their newfound abilities.

There, but for the grace of God, goes Maud, a reclusive young nurse whose impressionable demeanor causes her to pursue a pious path of Christian devotion after an obscure trauma.
