Is your House Haunted


Sept 19 – october 17.
Is Your House Haunted?: Poltergeists, Ghosts or Bad WiringIs Your House Haunted?: Poltergeists, Ghosts or Bad Wiring by Debi Chestnut

Picked this up one year on sale at Barnes and Nobles. I bought it as I was hoping it would be good for research as well as reference. Much of it I knew and at the same time much of it I do not stand by.

Some of the information i found to be mixed with what I’ve known though the years which I found more books and paranormal groups and ‘psychics’ have said.

I will say there is a section on how to help your child, FAQs When and where to get help and how to know if you should hire that group or not. Also how to tell if your house is haunted or if it’s ‘just the wiring’.

As I was going to write much of the information I knew on my Ghost/spirits page, I highlighted some of the helpful stuff from the book on the blog page as I more or less knew most of it already but was also reading it as research. (like finding a paranormal group to help) Also it gave me a sort of outline to note and ways that helped be better define types of spirits, and the different between what a ghost is an what a spirit is.. yes they are 2 different things.

Besides we can’t have people playing with Ouija boards and holding seances this time (october) of year, the veil between the living and the dead is too thin.

As mentioned I used some of the information for reference on my Halloween Ghost page…

Cult of Chucky


2017    Rated R     Horror,   1:30   Alex Vincent, Fiona Dourif, Zak Santiago, Jennifer Tilly

 

So ANy’s all grown up and has apparently gotten a head of the game. (All Puns intended) Oh wow! this is The original Andy from the very first movie!

Nica having spent 4 years in an asylum for the criminally insane and was made to believe she, NOT Chucky murdered her entire family. WTF! If Chucky’s head is served on a platter How is a new doll also possessed? (Did I miss a movie?)  There’s a part or 2 I got that Nightmare on Elm street feeling though Nightmare 3 was also in a mental health facility.

Oh now its not just a doll but is he possessing people too?  Why would Andy send out another doll that’s evil? Or is it evil?  I don’t know but for a sequel honestly it was just nice to visit an old friend! Er Frenemy? Speaking of which the Halloween Issue of Entertainment Weekly has an ‘Interview’ with Chucky

 

Chucky #1 “It behooves us to watch our step”

Chucky #2  “Behooves, listen to you, You sound like Hannibal Lechter. Can’t Belive they cancled that show”

 

There may be times it was a bit silly and a little Nightmare on Elm street like in parts maybe that’s why I enjoyed it.

I’d say give it a watch, it’s the right time of year for it!

 

Just a note. there’s  was an  UNRated version on the disk

 

 

It comes at night


2017, R 1:31  BR  Joel Edgerton   IMDB

 

So what comes at night? Something tells me this is just their anxiety and fears playing tricks on them.

The netflix sleeve (yes I use DVD) says “A malevolent force terrorizes the world outside’  really I never saw that force, or being.

The characters I find poorly written, sorry Joel I don’t mind you being the star but if this was the movie you were writing, babe you need to evolve on your characters. The wife and son seem to barely talk there seems to be no love between he and the wife. There’s not much to tell about anyone nor do any of them seem to have any personality.

The only personality is the house.

What comes at night,…..is    

 

 

 

apparently is this sickness/disease that I’m guessing is the reason there is hardly anyone around. The movie was interesting in the beginning but as it goes on it loses its momentum. It just becomes a tedious ‘routine’.

I appreciate Joel’s effort and I do love watching Edgerton’s movies acting or written by but after (I think) an hour, (give or take) is when the drop off happened.  The Not quite horror more thriller who’s mystery stunk and went kabo0m…

 

The Mechanic: Resurrection


2016  R 1:39  Blu-ray  Jason Statham Jessica Alba

 

Arthur Bishop has sworn off his profession as a contract killer. An old nemisis abducts his new girlfriend and he must complete a string of 3 hits in order to save her.

Nothing to really write home about, its just your average Statham stereotypical typecasted movie. Everything worth seeing was in the trailers!  Although a couple of my favorites (I don’t remember from the trailer)  was the Face Plant into the grill and yes, complete with scorch marks! Then there was a the guy he used to shield himself from the grenade which he put on the front of the guy.

Very predictable

unless you are planning to watch a Statham marathon…don’t bother

Before I wake


2016,   PG-13   Kate Bosworth,  Thomas Jane,Jacob Tremblay

IMDB  

So I wanted to see this when I first saw the trailers. I couldn’t get it from Netflix, and I can’t afford to buy digital movies unless I know I already like them and they are too much to rent in my point of view. I have an app called Stream Dor  I got through my amazon

Product Details

kindle.Then it was free now they charge 1.99 but  find it worth the price. as usually when I can’t find a movie on netflix, this app has it, Old or semi new. If they don’t its only a matter of time (you could always let them know you are looking for certain movies.) Also if you are learning another language, you can watch movies in other languages on here!  purchase the app here

Which is what I did to watch it. The copy I found was in German (or something that sounded like it) Frankly you can figure out what they are saying even if you only know a few phrases in a language. I find it interesting to hear the different languages around the world. Plus you may learn something. Sadly there were no subtitles on this one of any sort.

So this I think was similar in a way to another movie, or at least reminded me of another. A couple lose their son (I think he drowned in the tub) and they adopt a young boy who’s dreams and nightmares manifest. He dreams of their dead son and they end up able to hug him. It’s a solid manifestation. The boy’s biological mother (which I think was in that hung show with Jane) gave him u for adoption as she was sick. I believe she is the scary creature in the movie. I don’t scare easily but when this thing first (and maybe even the second time) showed up I think I may have given off a scared noise or maybe cuddled up to my pillow more.

Would it be have been worth seeing in the theater? Not likely. I did like the creature though. It was eerily creepy gave me a start at least. I think its worth at least one watch be sure to turn off the lights while you watch!
