Plus: The House With A Clock In Its Walls

Paul Feig may be more famous for his comedy works, and angering sexist Ghostbusters fans with his 2016 reboot, but with A Simple Favor the director explores his dark and mysterious side. Anna Kendrick, also more recognised for her comedy roles, stars as Stephanie, a mom blogger who befriends Emily (Blake Lively), a rich, enigmatic housewife who keeps most people at arm’s length, after their children force a play date. When Emily suddenly goes missing, secrets start to emerge in a twisting and mysterious plot.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls stars Jack Black, Cate Blanchett and Owen Vaccaro in a magical family adventure full of witches and warlocks and a haunted house. It’s a shame it’s only September as it’s a little early for what’s a perfect Halloween film for the family, plus, if you catch the movie in IMAX 3D theatres, there’s the re-mastered full version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller attached, which is worth the price of admission alone.

    A pretty great attempt to split the difference between outright camp and chic Eurocool.
