Cape Town – If you’re keen to go to the movies this weekend, then you’re in for a ride.

The prequel to horror film Annabelle will scare the crap out of you, but if you’re not into scary movies then there’s a bunch more to choose from.

Other hot new flicks in cinemas include an action comedy, a local comedy and a whole lot of drama.

Here are 5 new films at the local box office:

Movie: Annabelle: Creation

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Annabelle: Creation is exactly what you think it is: A jolting jump-from-your-seat scary fest.

Movie: The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Too long by a good quarter of its running time but the Hitman's Bodyguard is otherwise a fun, fresh and funny action flick with cracking turns from Deadpool and Nick Fury.

Movie: Detroit

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: This movie is a visceral experience and when you let the fact that the events depicted really happened sink in, it takes on a bigger narrative.

Movie: A Family Man

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: The problem with A Family Man is just how obvious its manipulations are and just how cynically it plays out. It may look heartfelt but you can almost feel the corporate machinery running beneath it.

Movie: Finders Keepers

Our rating: 1/5

Short review: Terrible Russian accents, gross toilet humour and a weird CGI fish is all you really need to know when deciding if Finders Keepers is for you.
