FILMS OUT THIS WEEK

Happy Halloween! As you'd expect, there's some spooky stuff out this week, with The Babadook ready to put kids off reading and The Book Of Life inspiring a quest to the land of the dead, as Horns grow on Daniel Radcliffe's head. Meanwhile, you can see a portrait of the artist Mr. Turner - read our interview with star Timothy Spall - there's tragic romance in Serena, and childhood sweethearts keep missing each other in Love, Rosie. Family secrets are revealed in This Is Where I Leave You and a blind teenager struggles for independence in The Way He Looks. Music fans will love Hendrix biopic Jimi: All Is By My Side, while a tank commander takes his crew on a deadly mission in Fury. A slate of great re-releases includes the terrifying Aliens, comedy classic Ghostbusters, the original Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, ghost story The Woman In Black and Michelangelo Antonioni's Zabriskie Point. In the documentary corner, Citizenfour profiles Edward Snowden and Time Is Illmatic looks at the career of hip hop artist Nas. All this, plus we're bringing you coverage of Glasgay!
