On the Big Screen: October 2014

Here’s a few highlights coming to the big screen in October.

While not covered here we feel we should note that Mudbloods is not an offshoot of Harry Potter, and Fury, though a war movie, is not an Avengers prequel starring a certain Samuel L Jackson. 😉

A month more or less dedicated to the genre of horror it seems…
