Roald Dahl’s The Witches

Shaun of the Dead

Shaun of the Dead is really hitting home right now.

But this is definitely worth a watch if you’re desperate to get back to the pub like these two!  

Adrenaline Junkies

We can’t recommend BlacKkKlansman enough. The gripping story follows Ron Stallworth, an African-American detective who embarks on a dangerous mission to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan with his Jewish partner, Zimmerman, who ends up disguising himself as a member of the white supremacist hate group. It’s a gripping tale with serious undertones but still offers comedy throughout.  

Cruel Intentions
