Harry Potter's Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) embraces the dark side in this supernatural thriller in the vein of Paranormal Activity, produced by Joel Silver's Dark Castle genre banner. When frightening events start to occur in their home, a young couple, Kelly (Twilight's Ashley Greene) and Ben (Gossip Girl's Sebastian Stan), discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run. Their last hope is an expert in the supernatural (Felton), but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force.

Insidious: Chapter 3 on HBO Hits

When teenager Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott) senses that her late mother is trying to contact her, she seeks help from gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye). However, Elise's tragic past makes her reluctant to use her abilities. After Quinn is attacked by a malevolent entity, her father (Dermot Mulroney) pleads with Elise for help. With support from two parapsychologists, Elise ventures deep into The Further -- where she finds a powerful demon with an insatiable craving for human souls.

Intrust Super Cup

After an unsuccessful Hunting trip abroad with losses to the Blackhawks and the Northern Pride, the Hunters return home to the NFS to face off against the Sunshine Coast Falcons in what will be their final home game for the year. The Falcons sit in 5th place, one place behind the Hunters and will be hoping to cause an upset like they did back in Round 4 when they beat the Hunters at their home ground 28-20.

A loss here will not change the Hunter’s position on the table as they have locked up the 4th spot and effectively earned the PNG franchise a place in the finals which start next week.

In the current finals format, the two top teams will have the first week off while 3rd will play 6th at the 3rd placed team’s home ground and 4th will play 5th at the 4th placed team’s home venue. It will seem likely that the Hunters will play the Falcons again next week unless the South Logan Magpies cause a massive upset over the 1st placed Burleigh Bears and effectively move into 5th place.

The Hunters take on the Sunshine Coast Falcons on Sunday 28th August. Watch this match live on TVWAN Action at 3:05pm.
