Callie Spengler, her two children Trevor and Phoebe and seismologist Gary Grooberson have moved to New York City, home of the original Ghostbusters firehouse. Dr Winston Zeddemore and his team including parabiologist Lars Pinfield have developed a top-secret research laboratory to propel the art of ghostbusting into the 21st century. This may come in handy when an ancient artefact unleashes dark forces and ushers in a calamitous second ice age with the potential to end mankind.

Horror Of The Week

Immaculate (18)

Cecilia has always sought refuge in her faith and her devotion to her Lord shepherds her to a position at a venerated convent nestled deep within the Italian countryside. From the outside, Cecilia’s new home appears idyllic – a rural retreat to nourish her soul and focus on her vows. However, horrifying secrets lurk beneath the surface of the religious order and Cecilia’s steadfast belief in scripture and reason are severely challenged in a supposed house of God.

Baltimore (15)

Rose Dugdale is a wealthy society debutante, who harks from rarefied stock. She wants for nothing, thanks to her lineage, but Rose is a free spirit with strong anti-establishment views, which lead her down a dangerous militant path in the 1970s. She aligns with the IRA and becomes radicalised, conducting the biggest art heist in history by stealing 19 old master paintings at gunpoint with three comrades in arms. What should be a simple robbery turns violent.
