Monster Party - - My take on the movie with spoilers!

At first glance, the poster for Monster Party seems innocuous. Bright blue skies, a woman in a red dress, a man in a suit, a fancy car... Then you notice the blood splattered on the white shirt of the man standing next to the woman, and you notice the subdued emotion of the other woman in the background.
But this is merely a tame depiction of the theme of the movie.
Something dangerous is going to happen the minute the first scene sets in.
The mother is cutting vegetables, the father has gotten out of bed in his slippers, the son is working out, the daughter, is walking outside when she notices something that shocks her.
We will never know what she must have seen.
In the next scene, we are introduced to three people: Dodge, Iris and Casper. They head over to a house, and while Dodge and Casper break into it and the safe, Iris stands out as lookout and feigns to be an advocate for rainforest preservation.
When the family arrives, Iris stalls them by pretending to ask for donations whil…

Horror movies this year 2018

84

That's the number of horror movies I watched this year. Some of them were good, some I expected to be good and weren't. This was a year when I took a chance with different sub genres in horror and was, well, occasionally disappointed.

It's weird how most of the horror movies I watched made me laugh more.

Anyway, here are some I did enjoy watching, not ranked, but listed according to when I saw them.


1. Jigsaw (because of the twist)

2. Delirium (because I'm still trying to make sure I understood the plot. Yes, still. Nice twists)

3. Marrowbone (I should have guessed what was happening. At one point I did but then the writing got better and I thought I must be wrong).

4. Pari  (a myth that gave me the creeps. Somehow you end up feeling sorry for Pari)

5. Bed of the dead (low budget, interesting premise, a little funny)

6. Lake Mungo (a found  footage/documentary style movie. The story was intense and well told)

7. Truth or Dare (my favorite game with a horror twist)

Bird Box— My take on the movie with spoilers!

Picture this, you're in a world where inexplicable things are happening. People are killing themselves for no reason and this threat, whatever it is, cannot harm you if you do not see it. So what do you do to combat this evil?

You put on a blindfold.

It is a terrifying thought to never be able to see the world around you anymore, isn't it?

But what is this threat? Where did it come from? Who realized first that if you don't see it, it cannot harm you?

These are some questions not answered in the movie but you must make the deduction yourself.

Bird box is actually two different plots, blended together. In one, we see Malorie, a woman, a painter, deserted by her husband and now pregnant. She has issues with motherhood and couldn't care less for her baby. Her sister advises her that the worst thing wouldn't be that she would have someone, but that she would be alone.

Before Malorie can process a suggestion given by her doctor to consider giving away her baby, disaste…

Exclusive Excerpt from All That is Left 

ChapterSeven

A few blocks from Aaron’s apartment, was the Redtrain
Avenue where there were shops, restaurants and cafes. It mostly served as a rest stop for the students in Vilmonte College who were too tired to make the half an hour drive all the way to the city.
Aaron didn’t mind the small town in which he stayed. The people were civil and didn’t bother him and there was a nice little lake down the road which hardly took him fifteen minutes to get to.
On such an evening when his head felt heavy and weary, he could think of nothing better than to walk to the lake and spend some time gazing at the placid waters. His hands in the pockets of his jacket, he found himself returning to his earlier thoughts.
Misha, the girl who had done nothing to him and only been her sweet kind self. And what had he done? Without thinking, Aaron started to walk faster, trying to evade the next thought that was going to accuse him for being such…
