BEST MOVIES OF LAST WEEK:

 

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

This cute princess movie tells the story of Clara - who wants to find a key that unlocks a box that has a priceless gift from her late mother, but little does she know, that key has some weird, magic effects that take Clara to a mysterious parallel universe. She then meets some trippy characters, like a gang of mice and a soldier named Philip, and she has to go through major hoops to get back to, well, reality. If you love Alice in Wonderland, this one's for you.

Kill Game

You know how it is in high school - the cool kids pulling pranks on the less popular students. These usually end at wedgies and slaps, but in this town, the teenagers go a lil' too far and end up accidentally killing a kid. They cover it up as a drowning accident, but five years later, they end up getting killed one by one in similar ways to their past murder. Who is behind this? Is it simply karma? Or is something much more sinister?

Showing in: Renaissance Smouha Complex, Cairo Mall Cinema, Downtown Cinema, Renaissance Suez Cinema

Hell Fest

3 guys and their girlfriends head to Hell Fest - a terrifying carnival with rides, games, and mazes, but things are about to go terribly wrong real, real fast. One of the girls is stabbed, and the movie then flash forwards to 3 years later, as the other friends make a decision that they will regret forever - to go back to Hell Fest. Buckle up, cause this is gonna be a hell of a ride.
