The other week we told you what TV shows to look out for this Autumn, and now we’re venturing off our sofas and into the cinema. So, without further ado, here’s what science fiction, fantasy and horror films to look out for in the next few months…

Dracula Untold

The origin story of Vlad Tepes, the man who became Dracula. Hopefully it’s better than last year’s ill-fated TV series.

UK Premiere: October 3rd


The Maze Runner

Stiles from Teen Wolf wakes up trapped in maze with lots of other boys, lots of running about ensues. An adaptation of the book by James Dashner.

UK Premiere: October 10th


A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night

The trailer doesn’t give much away,  but apparently it’s ‘the first Iranian vampire Western’. Where do we sign up?

UK Premiere: October 13th


The Babadook

A mysterious storybook called Mister Babadook arrives on the doorstop of a mother and her nightmare-plagued son. He becomes convinced that the Babadook is the monster from his nightmares. The trailer is pretty creepy.

UK Premiere: October 24th



An adaptation of Joe Hill’s book about a young man who, after being accused of murdering his girlfriend, develops supernatural powers (and horns!).

UK Premiere: October 29th



Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, space and about a gazillion spectacular teaser photos and trailers – if this film isn’t completely incredible, the very fabric of existence will be called into question.

UK Premiere: November 7th


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

The latest (and second to last) instalment of The Hunger Games franchise finds Katniss in District 13 at the helm of a rebellion she has a few doubts about. Catching Fire was incredible, so let’s hope the upward trend continues.

UK Premiere: November 21st


What We Do In The Shadows

A black comedy about vampire flatmates. Sounds (and looks) like a lot of fun!

UK Premiere: November 21st


The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

The third and final instalment of The Hobbit. We have are doubts about it, but we’ll still watch the hell out of it anyway.

UK Premiere: December 12th



Not strictly SFF, but it’s about a washed-out actor famous for playing titular superhero Birdman. We’ll take it.

UK Premiere: January 2nd


Into The Woods

Meryl Streep teaches some popular fairy tale characters a lesson while wearing a blue wig.

UK Premiere: January 9th



This trailer is very disturbing. Proceed with caution.

UK Premiere: TBC
