Five Fingers for Marseilles

Genre: Western 

A brilliant Western set in South Africa! Young Tau flees the town of Marseilles after killing two oppressive police officers. He returns 20 years later to find his home in the grip of a new threat. The lead is played by Vuyo Dabula, who you may recognise from Generations.

Genre: horror 

Hailed as the one true sequel to the 1978 slash classic, Halloween (2018) pits Laurie Strode and Michael Myers against each other in one final, bloody showdown on Halloween night. Original cast members Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle reprise their roles. This film broke two incredible records; it broke all box office records for the biggest horror movie opening with a female lead and is the highest-grossing film with a female lead over 55.

But their usual charade quickly falls to pieces when they realise there’s a real paranormal presence in the house...and it’s not friendly.

Dead Draw

Genre: Crime

If you like action, don’t miss Gil Bellows and Michael Eklund in this tense action-thriller. Four loyal pros, a fool-proof plan to steal US$25 million. Everything is going as planned...until the getaway pilot turns up dead and trust goes out the window. Now, they’ll be lucky to survive the night.

M-Net’s final Sunday blockbuster for the month is a razor-edged, anarchic crime drama set in the dystopian LA of 2028.

Also starring Sterling K Brown, Dave Bautista, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum and Zachary Quinto.
