With an all-star cast (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Abigail Breslin and Bill Murray), tune in to, Zombieland on 13 July, which is as much a horror as it is an adventure. Watch as a group of people try to find their way to an amusement park, while fighting off zombies who have invaded America.
On 20 July, a young woman's soul is in danger in The Vatican Tapes. With a priest and exorcist joining forces, to take on an evil force to save her. Some of the standout performances in The Vatican Tapes come from Michael Pena, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Sam Upton and Djimon Hounsou.
