ISSUE 1432

No tricks, only treats!

The Boo Issue

This Halloween, it’s not movie monsters that will frighten you but a new batch of horror films hammering home important messages about the big issues of the day. We speak to the director and stars of upcoming Netflix release His House to find out why they are finding their scares in the real world.

Kids cover competition

It’s that most wonderful time of the year again when we launch our traditional kids cover competition. If you know any budding young artists make sure to get them involved!

Also inside:

  • Fearne Cotton got to live her dream as a presenter – but found the price of fame was costly. She is also on the cover of the magazine that will be sold in retail outlets this week.
