Of course you can't go wrong having Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter doing the acting/voice over. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars only because it seeme...

It isn't a big production film and most of the story happens in a farmhouse cellar. However, there are some rather thought provoking things that happen. There are no zombies, or horrid creatures other than a few fairly miserable and dangerous human beings - but that was enough to have me thinking more deeply. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Sat, 12 Sep 2015 21:02:11 EST Now Playing in Theaters <link><BR>_=nv_mv_inth_1 </link> Sat, 12 Sep 2015 15:23:10 EST Director of the Day Wes Craven Wes Craven <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <link><BR>=nm_ov_bio_sm </link> Sat, 12 Sep 2015 15:21:23 EST Another Chucky Movie!

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 09:23:09 EST 9.11 Best deaths in horror? Have any favorite death scenes? <BR> Any villains you're really glad to see get theirs? <BR> <BR> One of my favorites is the opening scene in GhostShip, totally clever, awesome and gruesome. I also enjoyed seeing the religious lunatic woman in The Mist finally shut up (hubby and I actually cheer when it finally happens every time we watch it). The way the attorney dude in 13 Ghosts was cut in half was way cool. Fri, 11 Sep 2015 09:11:45 EST What is your opinion about aliens? So, I've been watching a lot of Ancient Aliens and other alien shows/documentaries and I must say in spite of all the "evidence" they tout, I'm still skeptical. I don't rule out the possibility that life may exist outside of our earth, I'm just not completely convinced they have visited us. Although I will admit some of the things they show are confusing as to how they happened... like the Nazca Lines in Peru, how in the world would they make those so well without seeing them from above... an... Thu, 10 Sep 2015 21:01:26 EST Do you have a favorite creepy kid? Sometimes in horror movies when the villain is a child it makes it all the more creepier. <BR> But it's also really weird to me when kids don't act like kids... Like the little boy in the Ring, Aidan, sure Samara is creepy and all, but that boy is just not right. <BR> <BR> I reckon my favorite creepy kid is Wednesday Addams. I've always loved her. :) Thu, 10 Sep 2015 20:47:46 EST Name 5 of your favorite comedy horror movies. I'm a big fan of comedy horror. Some of my faves that come to mind are <BR> Zombieland, <BR> Fido, <BR> Dead and Loving It, <BR> Army of Darkness, and <BR> Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. <BR> <BR> I can think of several more, but I named 5! <BR> <BR> Your turn!

American Werewolf in London had an awesome one, and I loved the way in Van Helsing he would tear away the outer layer when the beast was emerging, BUT... I think my all time favorite is still the old The Wolf Man with Lon Chaney, Jr. I've seen it a million times and still love it! <BR> <BR> btw, so sorry about dropping the ball yesterday!

Tue, 1 Sep 2015 11:54:18 EST Book: HOPE by Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus I had read the book Michelle Knight wrote about these 3 being kidnapped and held captive for years in a Cleveland home. I wanted to read this and see how the stories compared. <BR> <BR> They were very similar stories with slight differences which could be based on perception.

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:10:55 EST Book review: Joyland by Stephen King I just finished reading this for book club this month and I was not disappointed. The setting is a carnival where a ghost is rumored to haunt the haunted house circa 1973. The protagonist is 21-year-old Devon Jones who takes a job at Joyland for the summer. <BR> <BR> It's a coming of age story mixed with suspense. King as an author does two things very well (besides tell a story): He writes characters you never forget and scenes with rich detail that make you feel as if you are there. He doe...
