Film (Re)View – A Quiet Place

This is NOT a horror movie, it's sci-fi.......just needed to get that off my chest, as I hate it when things are mislabelled. The fact that the "monster" is an alien should be the clue here. Unfortunately, because of this, as soon as I saw it, it turned me cold, as I am not a … Continue reading Film (Re)View – A Quiet Place

Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold….

…or is it, dear reader? Would it not be best to “turn the other cheek”, “let sleeping dogs lie”, or just be the bigger person and walk away? Think of all the books, films, TV shows and stories based around revenge and then think about the ending and how it all turned out. Not well, … Continue reading Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold….

This review contains SPOILERS - you've been warned! This was another Scream Unseen outing and a movie I was very much looking forward to, as the trailers implied it would be awesome and, no!

Film (Re)View – Den of Thieves

I like an action movie as much as the next girl and with Gerard Butler (aka Antony Cardover) thrown into the mix, how could I say no? I must admit, he's piled o the pounds and I'm hoping it is for this role (though I can't see the relevance) as he certainly didn't look comfortable … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Den of Thieves

As such, this is the first of a series of blogs looking at the seven deadly sins. Take heed, dear reader, as … Continue reading Are You a Sinner or a Saint?

Film (Re)View – Insidious: The Last Key

As Annabelle Creation is to The Conjuring franchise, so too is The Last Key to the Insidious franchise - a prequel. I love a prequel, or a prologue as I prefer to call them, as everyone who reads my books will attest. Prologues set the scene and hint at the horrors to come. The prologue … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Insidious: The Last Key
