Film (Re)View – The Strangers, Prey at Night

This sequel has been a long time coming and I can honestly say that I wasn't disappointed. Rather than being a typical slasher flick - all horror and no terror - the filmmakers really thought about what they were doing with this. The movie follows a family who go to stay at a relative's holiday … Continue reading Film (Re)View – The Strangers, Prey at Night

Film (Re)View – Ghosts Stories

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 scary.........er, no! Don't get me wrong, this movie started out really well. It follows Dr Goodman (Andy Nyman), a jewish man raised … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Ghosts Stories

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

Film (Re)View – Winchester

The Winchester House is in San Jose, California and is, arguably, the most haunted house in the USA. Following the death of her husband and infant daughter, Sarah Winchester visited a medium, who told her she needed to move far away and build a house big enough to occupy the souls of those killed by … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Winchester

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

Film (Re)View – The Greatest Showman

Breathtaking movie, I have to say, with a musical score that will leave you smiling even on your darkest day. True to the real story? Well, I'm not so sure of that, but would it be quite as wonderful if it were too close? I'll let you decide. From what I know of Phineas Taylor … Continue reading Film (Re)View – The Greatest Showman

Film (Re)View – Wonder

During my school visits to promote my first children's book, The Misfits, I was made aware that many schools have been reading Wonder in an effort to help kids understand the impacts of bullying and of being different and not fitting in. It seemed fitting, therefore, to go and see the movie version of the … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Wonder

Film (Re)View – Murder on the Orient Express

As I have never seen the original or read the book, I went on this journey with an open mind. I had heard the comments about Branagh vs Suchet and 'that moustache', but I didn't let any of it sway me as I sat down for my first trip on the Orient Express. First off, … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Murder on the Orient Express
