The Conjuring 2 is in cinemas this week, and it's going to be a tough one to beat after the success of the original back in 2013. Still some brave souls are giving it a go, including Gods of Egypt and Tale of Tales.

The Conjuring 2
Director James Wan returns for more creepy creeps, this time with a 'true' case that happened in London in the late 1970s. It's a gorgeous production with an amazing sense of style and a huge number of properly chilling moments. It's going to be big.

Gods of Egypt
From the director of The Crow and I Robot comes a blockbusting tale of when gods walked the Earth alongside mankind. The scale of the story is huge, as Horus teams up with mortal to fight back against the deadly Set (Gerard Butler). It's been a few months since the US release and we're looking forward to checking it out.

Barbershop 3: A Fresh Cut
Remember those Barbershop movies you might have watched in the early 2000s? Well here's a sequel you also might watch. The crew is back and they need to work together against gang members roving the streets. That's actually the plot. Review across the pond have been great but these movies tend to do very little business outside of the States.

Tale of Tales
This one looks mental - an Italian-French-English fantasy horror film with a cast including John C. Reilly, Salma Hayek and Vincent Cassel. It's a twisted take on three famous fairytales and seems to be trying to make them as not safe for children as possible. Which is pretty much in keeping with the origins of these very screwed up stories.
