If you’ve watched Sherlock Holmes and fell in love with the brains of the character, wait until you meet Enola Holmes— the youngest member of the Holmes household. Played by Millie Bobby Brown, Enola is anything but restricted probably because she was brought up by a single mother.

She seeks for clues to solve the unsolvable case and who better to help with a case like this than her brother, Sherlock Holmes himself.
- The Conjuring
If you’ve seen Insidious and SAW, you’re going to enjoy The Conjuring. Another one of James Wan’s masterpieces, The Conjuring is an intensely horrifying film ironically with no blood, violence, or profanity.
