#Entertainment: October Movies


We are always ready for the frights of Halloween, so we think it’s quite fitting to gooi a whole lot of thrills and horror into our October movies list.

October Movies

Venom

We open up the list with a banger that we are so excited about. This is a spin-off based on a Marvel comic book character, which was seen in Spider-Man 3. A parasite attaches itself to a host via a sticky substance that then gives the host special powers.

Release Date: Friday, 05 October 2018. 

The Little Vampire

Yes, it does involve vampires but this one is actually a family friendly movie. It’s an incredible animation around the story of Rudolph, a 13-year-old vampire, whose clan is threatened by a notorious vampire hunter. He meets Tony, a mortal of the same age, who is fascinated by old castles, graveyards and, of course, vampires, and Tony helps him overcome his adversaries in this action and humour packed battle.

Release Date: 26 October 2018.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

It’s about to get interesting and even more magical this October… This movie tells a spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis, who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead. Sounds right up your street? Then be sure to be there for the release!

Release Date: 05 October 2018. 

Table Manners

We like to gooi some South African flavour into everything, because a little bit of that Mzansi is always a great idea. Megan (Diaan Lawrenson) loses everything when her husband, Lloyd (Neels Van Jaarsveld), gets arrested for tax fraud. Forced to rebuild her life, Megan rediscovers her love for cooking and who she really is. With the help of her best friend Lindiwe (Renate Stuurman), she also learns that the path back home begins with realising that she is enough and all she needs is family, food and love.

Release Date: 28 September 2018.

The Titan

There are so many movies to look forward to this October, we think you might want to catch them all. This one is just as great and tells an incredible story of the near future, where Earth’s resources are exhausted and humanity’s only hope of salvation lies in travelling to a distant planet. A military family is relocated and takes part in a ground-breaking experiment of genetic evolution and space exploration, which will be vital to ensure that the human race survives.

Release Date: 19 October 2018.

Papillon

Based on the international best-selling autobiography, Papillon follows the epic story of Henri “Papillon” CharriAre (Charlie Hunnam), a safecracker from the Parisian underworld who is framed for murder and condemned to life in the notorious penal colony on Devil’s Island.

Release Date: 19 October 2018.

Halloween

We did say things are about get scary, but don’t cover your eyes just yet! Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. It’s about to go down!

Release Date: 19 October 2018.

Searching

A suspenseful and hyper-modern thriller about a desperate father searching for his missing teenage daughter. After a local investigation is unsuccessful, David (John Cho) decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, and the one place we all keep our secrets today. Dun, dun dun…

Release Date: 26 October 2018.
