The long running Conjuring series which has spawned many same universe movies reaches the third in the main series, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.
The movies are based on the working of Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren who became media stars in America.
The movie stars among other Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Ruairi O'Connor.
A chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
The fight for the soul of a young boy takes them beyond anything they'd ever seen before.
BBFC certificate breakdown.

Star Wars fans around the world have their opinion of what is the best lighsaber battle in the Star Wars movie franchise, so on this Star Wars day at 25thframe.co.uk we though we would give our opinion of what we think is the best battle seen on screen in the ever growing list of movies.
There had been a Star Wars drought for a number of years (10 years) and with the buyout of Lucasfilms still fresh in everyones minds as well as the (at the time) badly received prequel trilogy the fan base wanted a good Star Wars movie.
JJ Abrahams was put in charge of directing the film, a life long fan of the series, and he delivered in spades, bringing arguably the best Star Wars film to date.
We instantly took to the new characters of the Rebel Alliances Rey and the First Orders Kylo Ren, and with Rey's force powers hinted at throughout, the dual between the two was inevitable, and at the end of the film Abrahams delivered, set within a forest of the Star Killer Base while the planet explodes around them.
We knew Yoda was a Jedi Master and that he had fought in the Clone Wars that started at the end of the second part of prequel trilogy, and George Lucas knew he had to deliver.
As Yoda walks into the hanger where Count Dooku was trying to board his ship you simply knew what was about to happen, and as he pulls across his robes to reveal a small lightsaber this was the moment, he force pulls his weapon to his hand and turns it on.
The battle doesn't last long, but seeing the small green Jedi Master who usually finds it hard to walk bouncing around the walls during the fight is a joy.
The original movie introduces us to the legendary weapon, something not really seen on the big screen before but throught the stories Ben Kenobi tells Luke during the movie we know that the weapon is elegant and the Jedi are lethal with it.
We also believe at this time that Darth Vader is the arch enemy of Ben Kenobi, and by the end of the movie there has to be a metting of the two, and while trying to escape the Death Star the two come face to face.
Despite the technological abilities in special effects at the time this thrilled fans of a generation and when the inevitable happens at the end we are shocked at the loss of our new hero.
This battle comes as no surprise, we have seen Luke go through the training, and go off to rescue his friends, and we get the foreshadowing fof things to come on Dagobah.
When Luke goes into the carbon freeze chamber and the two enemies ignight their sabers in low light we get the almighty battle between the two enemies.
The style and technology used in this film is so much greater than that of the original Star Wars that it feels fresh and thrilling, and at the end of the battle we get one of cinemas greatest reveals, so good to this day it is celebrated as THE movie twist of all times.
The movie gets a lot of criticism, but over the last 20 years time has been kind and in the grander scheme of the saga the fan base is looking at this film more favourably, and it has the best lighsaber battle of all time.
It had been 16 years since we'd had any proper Star Wars to enjoy and despite the film not getting the critical reaction Lucas wanted the Dual Of Fates was spectacular.
The highlight is at the start of the battle as Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan face the Sith Lord Darth Maul, as the John Williams music 'Duel Of Fates' starts to get more intense Maul ignites a single blade on his lightsaber, then the money shot happens and another blade appears from the other side, every Star Wars Fan looked on in amazement as the incredible battle unfolds between the 3 warriors.
The only real shame is that, inevitably, Darth Maul dies at the end of the movie, although in quiet spectacular style, but with little screen time fans wanted more, although as seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story they have brought him back and who knows if he'll appear in another movie or not?

After being knocked off the top of the North American box office last weekend by Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil, Joker jumps back to the top with a very narrow margin while horror movie Countdown is the top new film.
A very interesting week on the US box office with 2 very close races, first the fight for the top, the original figures showed Joker going reclaiming number 1, but when the final figures came in not only were they higher than originally though but Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil had retained the top spot.
Also we have the other end of the top 5 where new entry Countdown was originally reported as coming in at 5 below Zombieland: Double Tap, but when the final figures were released, it was close, but the films flipped positions.
Disney's Angelina Jolie starring movie retains the top spot for a second weekend with a gross of $19.3 Million, it is only $120k above the weekend gross of Joker.
The film total gross after 2 weeks of release is $66.2 Million which is perhaps a little disappointing for Disney after the marketing they put into the movie.
The DC villain movie starring Joaquin Phoenix takes $19.2 Million and remains in the runner up spot for a second weekend.
The movie only narrowly was beat by the Maleficent sequel to return to the top and in early figures was the top film of the weekend.
The movie has now taken a US total of $277.9 Million after 4 weeks and is the highest grossing R rated movie.
The film is also the top total grossing movie on this weeks top 10 charts.
As we enter Halloween week the Kookie family is at number 3 this week with $11.7 Million and has a total gross of $72.8 Million after 3 weeks.
Highest new film of the week land down at number 4 with this shock horror movie which manages $8.8 Million on its debut weekend.
With Halloween this coming weekend the film MAY get a little boost but this movie will probably move to streaming in the coming weeks.
Another sequel which is perhaps performing a bit below expectation as the Zombieland sequel takes $8.7 Million and sits at number 5 this weekend.
This takes the films total gross to $44.1 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The US box office sees another tightly fought battle for the number 1 spot this week with Interstellar and Disney's Big Hero 6 challenging for the top spot.
Big Hero 6 wins the fight and takes $56.2 million over the weekend, nowhere near Disney's last animated feature Frozen but still a very good debut and the film has had good generally reviews which should keep it going for a few weeks.
Making its debut in second place is Batman Begins director Christopher Nolan'a new film Interstellar which takes $50 million from its debut weekend of release.
Going down to fourth this week is Ouija, with the hangover from the Halloween weekend keeping it going a little longer but it will probably sink next week with the spooky season well out the way.
