Movie fans will have noticed that the upcoming movies at the Empire Cinema belong to the same genre – and you can blame the imminent arrival of Halloween on October 31.


And as there was no new release at the theatre on Thursday due to technical glitch, here’s what you can expect from the movies slated to feature in the coming days: Crimson Peak is a gothic romance film directed by Guillermo del Toro of Pacific Rim and Hellboy fame.

The movie is based on the aftermath of a family tragedy. It is a supernatural mystery about an aspiring author who is swept away to a house which is filled with secrets that will haunt her forever. The trailer looks pretty spooky and should have enough action to pull any horror movie fanatics to the Empire.

Crimson Peak stars Mia Wasikowska as the aspiring author and Tom Hiddleston (best known for his role as Loki in Thor), Jessica Chastain, Charlie Hunnam, and Jim Beaver in other pivotal roles.

Goosebumps, based on the bestselling book of same name by author RL Stine, also premiered last night and promises a feast for the eyes.

This movie is about a teenager who teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author RLStine after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free.

Goosebumps will be spooky enough to inspire your Halloween preparations, especially if you are having trouble thinking of an appropriate costume.

The movie stars Jack Black as RL Stine, Dylan Minnette as the teenager and Odeya Rush as his daughter.On Wednesday next week, The Last Witch Hunter, starring Vin Diesel, will premier in Rarotonga, bringing plenty supernatural action that the other two flicks may lack.

Diesel, plays the last witch hunter in the world, and he is all that stands between humanity and the combined forces of the most horrifying witches in history.
