Four films are released this weekend but there isn't much of a range to choose from. If you don't like children's films or horror films then you are out of luck as really that is all we have on show for you this weekend. Like I said last week, we seem to be having a lot of children's films being released at the moment. I suppose they are about 'monsters' but with Halloween on the approach I much expected some frightening horrors to be bursting into cinemas. We do have one horror film out this weekend but that franchise is slowly turning into a fans only zone. A bit like the Saw movies did in the end. I'm sure you will find something among the releases but this week is once again a poor one. Probably be a kid's film for me this weekend then.
1. The first release of the week is Tim Burton's animated movie FRANKENWEENIE. The story of a young boy, named Victor, who has the idea of bringing his favourite dog Sparky back to life using the power of electricity. After he does however things aren't as joyful as they used to be. Starring: Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, & Martin Landau. Is he alive?
2. A horror franchise releases yet another instalment in PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4. A bit of a no-brainer really knowing the success of the others. Same formula takes place here, a handheld camera recording the moves of the occupants of a house when spooky goings on begin to take place. Starring: Katie Featherston, Kathryn Newton, Matt Shively, & Brady Allen. Will the truth come out this time?

That is that then. Four films for you to pick from for this week's cinema trip. It is a tough one to pick a winner and I may find myself watching a kid's flick. Not that I mind but it's the odd looks I get when I'm in there! Hopefully that won't happen this week and most of the parents have abandoned their children to go see Paranormal Activity 4 instead.
