Cape Town – Scares and indie drama at local cinemas this week - all the details on what's new on the big screen.

Elle Fanning shows off her singing skills, three friends go on an epic adventure to reunite a Yeti with his family, a possessed camera, and a very timely local film about date rape.

HERE ARE THE 4 NEW FILMS RELEASING IN SA:

Movie: Teen Spirit

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: Teen Spirit is a film hopelessly lacking in any actual teen spirit and is far more dreary, unengaging and ineptly assembled than it has any right to be. An unfortunately disappointing directorial début from actor, Max Minghella.

Movie: Abominable

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: The emotions in Abominable might make you think you’re watching Disney, but is a surprisingly beautiful animation from the Dreamworks house.

Movie: Polaroid

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: While a decent-enough horror movie, Polaroid lacks a truly terrifying villain.

Movie: Cut-out Girls

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: The film is an exceptional example of a story – shared by millions of women and men globally – that is best told without graphic violent images.
