The Appearing is the story of a couple, Michael (Will Wallace) & Rachel (Emily Brooks), who move to a small town in the middle of nowhere after the death of their daughter a few months prior. Michael takes on his roll as the new police deputy in town and is instantly caught up in a missing person case. That is quickly followed by the only suspect speaking in dead languages, the appearance of a ghost child that only the wife can see and of course a creepy abandoned house which is, according to the locals, haunted since a horrific death there years early. With the husband distracted by his work, he fails to notice that his wife has been acting more distant and rather strange until one particular violent episode reveals the true culprit behind it all, demon possession. All of the plot points do make for a good, if not very original, horror film. The question is, as always, did it deliver? Read the rest of this entry »

Child of God is the story of Lester Ballard (Scott Haze), a violent and twisted man who is trying to live a normal life in a town with no family, no real home (he’s camping out in an abandoned cabin) & no true friends. The townsfolk ostracize him for his strange behaviour and treat him like a criminal. This causes him to become more and more twisted and turn to criminal acts each one worse than the last before resorting to cave dwelling and essentially being on the run from the entire town.

Scorned is a film ummm about a woman who is scorned by her lover, some stuff happens and it’s over. The End.
Okay, okay I know it’s not that simple so let me start again. Scorned is about Sadie (AnnaLynne McCord) who, while on a romantic weekend with her boyfriend Kevin (Billy Zane) discovers he has been cheating on her with her best friend Jennifer (Viva Bianca). Cue the start of a twisted night of revenge, torture and some very crazy behaviour. Probably not the best movie for a date night to all the couples out there but if you like a bit of a thriller then this is the film for you. So what did I personally think about my viewing experience? Well…… Read the rest of this entry »

Alright so let me lay it out for you. Speak no Evil starts off as a film about a woman whose daughter is kidnapped by a weird creature in the middle of the night. It then transforms into a story about all of the towns children going missing only to be returned possessed, violent and extremely into the taste of human flesh. The church/cult/extreme religious wing manages to get all of the towns folk on board to essentially rid the children of this demon spawn by any means possible. Bring on creepy kids, lots of screaming a shit ton of blood and a demon dude that is actually impressively scary looking. So would I recommend this film to others? Well…….

Just a quick note to explain why I haven’t updated this blog in a while. It’s been a whirlwind past few months with a build up to a pretty awesome conclusion.

It all started with my house-mate being made redundant thus leading to a very quick decision that we both needed to vacate the apartment, her for the obvious lack of income and me for the fact that I wouldn’t need to be living there for much longer anyway (more to come on that.) This meant a very busy few weeks of packing up our entire lives and progressively moving it all out of the apartment we were living in and into the new housing arrangements we each had.

That was followed by, for me, a resignation from my job while a plentiful 7 week notice (because I’m just awesome). Then a co-worker going on an extended holiday which I was covering for at work. This caused my work load to be substantially larger than what it had been as well as making sure I was training new people for my position and making sure everything was going to be fine for when I leave.

This was all leading to the ultimate outcome which will occur on the 22nd July………………I am packing up my life, boarding a plane and moving from Australia to Canada for a couple of years! Yep, I was approved for a 2 year working/holiday visa so I have decided to jump into the adventure and see where it takes me. This has essentially caused me to be extremely busy making sure everything was in order and left me little time to watch movies and update this page.

As I’ve had a few hours today spare I figured I should write this brief explanation and follow it up with a few posts. So apologies for the absence and I hope that I will be able to get back on track and start posting a bit more regularly again.
