From the latest horror blockbusters to classic Halloween favourites, there’s a treat for people of all ages, tastes and fear factors.

Those seeking new thrills can expect several brand-new horror movies on Halloween weekend, such as the much-anticipated return of horror icon Michael Myers in his final outing, who is back once again to shape the fates of the people of Haddonfield in Halloween Ends.

Also screening at Swansea’s Vue Cinema on York Street in the city centre is the highly acclaimed psychological horror Smile, which will continue to fright and excite audiences after becoming one of the most popular films of the Halloween season this year.

True horror buffs will be pleased to have the rare opportunity to catch the big screen debut of Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘R Treat. Originally released directly on DVD in the UK back in 2007, this feature length collection of horror tales is the ideal watch for the Halloween season at Vue.

Halloween also sees the return of classic and creepy flicks, with Tobe Hooper’s haunting Poltergeist and John Carpenter’s The Thing both back up on the big screen. Younger films fans can also take their pick between spooky favourites like Hocus Pocus and Paranorman in what is Vue’s most varied Halloween line-up to date.

“From family-friendly comedy horrors, to psychological thrillers, we know how gripping scary films can be and how easy it is to get lost in them. What better way to celebrate Halloween?”
