Being a huge horror fan there are certain movies that I have seen time and time again. Horror classics such as Thirteen Ghosts and Ghost Ship are my go to movies when I need that scare factor.
This week I have tried to watch some that I haven’t seen before (of course there’s always the odd one that you realise half way through you have actually seen which happened twice!) The joys of working while watching tv I think!
We started to watch this movie when we returned from my M & E’s birthday party but thanks to lots of gin we turned it off pretty quickly and went to sleep! I watched it the next day and half way through realised I had seen it before but had obviously been working or something at the same time as there were bits I remembered and others I didn’t.
The movie was made in 2012 about a young girl who asks her father to buy her a dybbuk box from a yard sale. The girl becomes more and more obsessed with the box which shows obvious signs of possession. Jeffrey Dean Morgan stars (eye candy!) as the father who has to battle evil in this take on a true story. Not really scary but a good demonic supernatural movie none the less. Rated 15.
With 4 movies in this franchise I was surprised I hadn’t already watched these but for some reason I always thought I had! Again I think I tend to put movies on and get distracted so see some parts and not others. I recall the paranormal specialists in the home but none of the rest of the movie! Go figure!
Another supernatural horror with spirits trying to trap a comatose child in a place called The Further. Lin Shaye (known for Dead End, Grudge etc) stars and she always indicated a good movie to me. This movie has lots of jump scares and to be honest is a lot better edited than The Possession in terms of scare factor. No blood or gore, just a good old fashioned scary movie! Rated PG-13
I’m counting this as one because I watched one after the other and they do follow on.
Following a tale of Ellison Oswald (Ethan Hawke – eye candy!), an author who relocates his family in the hope of resurrecting his writing career. Little does the family know that he has moved them to the home of the victims. He discovers snuff films detailing all of the murders that link back to the family home. I won’t give too much away but it is all connected and the movie ends in a bit of a shocking way – not at all as I expected to be honest.
The second movie follows on with a mother and her two sons living in a rural house which is one of the houses connected with the murders in the first movie. Linked with the demon Bughuul, the monster who eats children. I really enjoyed how the story was told and again, although not really a blood and guts style horror this is a great scary movie. Rated 18.
I had wanted to go to the cinema to see this when it first came out but life gets in the way and then of course Covid-19 buggers everything up! Anyways I got to watch this the other night and it was so much better than I thought it would be.
What you don’t expect on your wedding night is to be hunted down by your new in laws. After choosing a card displaying the game at hand is hide and seek, the bride must then evade being killed until morning. Simple or so you would think. What ensures is a hilarious cat and mouse game with more deaths than you can count, in ways you wouldn’t even imagine.
More funny than scary with so much blood you could sink a ship. Not for the faint hearted. Rated 18
I adore movies that could be true and with so many apps to download there is no doubt one out there that tells you exactly when you are going to die. That is exactly what this movie is about. A nurse downloads and app that claims to predict exactly when a person is to die. She is given 3 days and has to find a way to save her life before time runs out.
This gave me all the Final Destination vibes what with knowing it is coming for you and having to try and stop it before death appears. A good movie for those who like suspense, nothing too bloody or gory. Rated PG-13
Can’t. Bloody. Wait!
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
