Now showing in cinemas.

Cape Town – That evil possessed doll, Annabelle, is back in cinemas this weekend.

In Annabelle Comes Home a babysitter awakens the doll and unleashes an unholy night of terror.

If you're not into scary flicks there are three other films to see.

The talking pets are back too (not the scary kind), an epic local coming of age adventure, and a true crime drama that gave rise to the psychological condition known as Stockholm syndrome.

HERE ARE THE 4 NEW FILMS RELEASING IN SA CINEMAS

Movie: Annabelle Comes Home

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Annabelle Comes Home is the least scary Conjuring movie to date but, weirdly, it’s also the best and most purely enjoyable Conjuring movie since the original. Try figure that one out.

Movie: Stockholm

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Stockholm is a weird little true-crime film that is almost as perplexing as the psychological disorder that sprung from the events it depicts but is also way more entertaining than it has any right to be.
