The cinema roster this season is a packed one, but we've sorted the wheat from the chaff for you. It's not a great seasons for coulrophobes: two of the 11 best films feature killer clowns (It Chapter 2, Joker), and Judy and Punch will no doubt put clown haters on edge too. On top of all that there's the sequel to scary classic The Shining, but if the stress gets too much we can look forward to the feelgood release of romcoms Blinded by the Light and Last Christmas. Oscar season is just around the corner too, so expect big things from The Goldfinch.
