Review: Annabelle: Creation (15)

Demonic possession is child’s play in Annabelle: Creation, a 1950s-set prequel that enriches the mythology of the wooden doll, which wreaked havoc in the 2013 supernatural horror The Conjuring.

Film review: A Ghost Story (12A)

It seems like every other month just now there’s an intriguing and subversive horror movie out. A Ghost Story is the latest, and perhaps the strangest.

Lost jewel of Bradford’s Bollywood past goes on view

It looked more like Gargrave than the Ganges, but the Bollywood thriller they shot on the banks of the River Wharfe four decades ago is a jewel in the crown of Yorkshire’s forgotten cinema.

Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

There’s no escaping the titular significance of Spider-Man: Homecoming. The first Spider-Man movie made in collaboration with Marvel Studios, it feels like he’s finally back where he belongs.

That’s not to diminish Sam Raimi’s Tobey Maguire-starring take on the web-slinger. But after Marc Webb’s confused, Twilight-influenced reboot with the far-too-old-from-the-start Andrew Garfield, this new outing makes Spider-Man relevant and distinctive again, modernising him without losing sight of what makes the character so appealing.
