A leading UK cinema chain will screen a series of ‘spooktacular’ horror films in Glasgow this weekend.

The Showcase Cinema screenings are part of a nationwide Halloween film season over the coming weeks.

Cinemagoers will be among the first in line to see brand-new releases like Saw X which is said to be the most chilling instalment of the franchise yet.

It Lives Inside and Five Nights at Freddy’s are also due to be released in the lead up to Halloween.

Film fanatics will also get the chance to see The Exorcist, being re-released in celebration of its 50th anniversary, and to coincide with the highly anticipated sequel, The Exorcist: Believer, released on Friday.

Showcase Cinemas is offering Insider members who are brave enough to endure any two or more of these spooktacular screenings until Friday, November 10, the chance to receive an extra £5 Insider reward to use on a future visit.

Jon Dixon, UK marketing director at Showcase Cinemas, said: “There is no better place to watch a horror film than in the comfort of the cinema.

“There are some iconic sequels and new releases coming out in the next few weeks and we wanted to treat our members to an extra reward after they enjoy their chosen big screen frights.”

He added: “We’ll be offering any Insider members who watch two or more horror releases an extra £5 in rewards.

“We have an amazing line-up all the way to Halloween weekend and beyond, so there’s something for all thriller fanatics to enjoy.”
