Intruders

Plot of a the story is about two families who have ghostly apparitions. Without giving too much of it away the mystery and suspense of these two families is so much the same it is not as it seems.

It is about a story of a boy who writes about a monster and his mother living with the fear that her son is dealing with his father not being there. This movie is a Spanish story which transcends to a family in England where the girl finds a box in the hole of a tree which she soon reads the paper and bring forth the monster Hollowface. The father of the daughter soon develops the same fantasy that he sees the intruder

The overall story is a psychological thriller where a term of dual psychosis inhabits both father and daughter, sharing the same intrusion. Will I see again maybe just from the writers’ point of view only.

ATM

Plot – three employees from a stock firm are going home and one is hungry from a lot of the staff’s Christmas party that he decides to have a pizza. With no money in the wallet they had to go to an ATM.

What happens at the ATM is such a weird tale that even you would wonder who would do such a thing. The man dress in black and warm from the winter weather; strategically places himself from the security camera views of the ATM building block. What ensues is a deep psychological twist of entrapment by one obsessions of ATM.

The Serpent and the Rainbow

Plot – is about a man mission to find medicines to save people from illness. Bill Pullman travels to the Amazon and meets a medicine-man which he takes the drug induced travel of the mind and found his totem the jaguar. Then he travels to Haiti to find out what type of medicine is getting the people come back to life. In Haiti, voodoo magic and christian religion is practice almost simultaneous. In a hallucinated state, he travels to repair his mind from such things.

Overall it is a movie that is inspired on actual events of the seventies. ♠♠♠

The Cabin in the Woods

Plot is about five college friends go to the cabin in the woods for a party weekend. Chris Hemsworth is not aware that the cabin bought by his uncle is not as it seem — on face value it looks like a Cabin in the woods. His friends consists of his girlfriend, another girl, a male friend and a pot-smoking male friend who looks for conspiracies at every corner. Well this party weekend didn’t start so well, as they went with an rv to the woods, meeting a rude and obnoxious gas owner and its mounting suspense started as an eagle flies into a wall and dies. This also starts with two doctors in an under ground facility which seems to be nothing to do with the movie but it does click as the five college friends get to the cabin.

Without giving much away from this movie, it does make a mountain out of a mole hill as it escalates into a normal slash and hack horror film.This almost classic hack and slash horror soon warps like an experiment to a worldwide watched phenomena of horror stories from different countries. All for what?

Overall, its like looking at the classic hack and slash horror with one difference – a twist so perverted that reams with – why the hell I watched it? If you ever wondered why horror writers write stories then this movie also sets out “What if” scenario. Pay close attention to the basement of the cabin.

May’s Update

Well as you may know that I am on a very tight schedule, and in May and these last nine days of June, I have had some news that has went by.

Firstly, I must say that it’s a mixture of good and bad news. Of course, the bad news and it’s what I feel at the moment that everything is at a limbo status – one of my publishers Wicked East Press is having a few problems and there will be a long wait on some of my stories coming out.

Secondly, a few changes to my site here in the next few weeks will be made and I’ll be here less or more depends on the books I read and movies I watch. These movies and books I’ll be reviewing, will be a monthly or fortnightly review which I haven’t decided as yet. So this is a mixture of good and bad.

Lastly, the best of good news is that I hope that all of you my favorite followers come to my new official site that I own a piece of the web. Own per se is a little over dramatic, well, I have an address that you can come to and see the new and I hope professional look. Okay, I do pay for the dot com at a service provider and you could say I own a piece of the web – only the address. I use WordPress org, because it is very easy like WordPress com but with one difference – WordPress org needs you to install themes and plugins.

Why did I go down this path?

I did this path because I wanted more control over where I wanted things to go. I’m having so much fun that I didn’t notice a month went by and June is here by nine days. I am close to finishing my new professional site, that I have on thing to finish off, in the next week. I only want to be more professional and having a site address is the better option – for me.

Finally, in the next week or so I will be slowly going to change the theme of this site and add the new professional site for you all to click, to see and browse at your leisure. Until then please bear with me. Cheers and see you there and here…
