The Tenth Girl (2019) – Sara Faring

In my continued search for engaging and new horror, I delve into lots of books and consult lots of lists, new and old. Well, on a few of those lists, I found The Tenth Girl mentioned and I went to work tracking down a copy to read. It’s a bit of a Gothic tale, set…

The X-Files (1994) – Beyond the Sea, and Gender Bender

Beyond the Sea marks the halfway point of the first season of The X-Files, and while most of the episodes have been solid, and we’ve learned a bit about Mulder’s (David Duchovny) family history, with the abduction of his sister Samantha, Scully (Gillian Anderson) hasn’t been much more than his brilliant, sceptical partner until now….

The Peanuts Book (2020) – Simon Beecroft

Good grief, Charlie Brown you’ve got a new book from DK Canada! The Peanuts Book: A Visual History of the Iconic Comic Strip, is, for me, the perfect feel good book. Even my initial leaf through its pages caused me great delight, and sent me spiralling down the rabbit hole of nostalgia. Charlie Brown and…

Seven Footprints to Satan (1929) – Benjamin Christensen

I move into a new chapter in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies, The Devil’s Work, so I bet this section is going to be a lot of fun! The first film in the chapter that I hadn’t previously watched is a silent film called Seven Footprints to Satan, it’s kind of dark, and kind…

Chuck (2009) – Versus the First Kill, and Versus the Colonel

Scott Rosenbaum pens Chuck Versus the First Kill which debuted on 13 April, 2009. While the staff at BuyMore try to deal with Emmett’s (Tony Hale) evaluation and whether or not they move against him, Chuck (Zachary Levi) is hoping for leads and information about his father’s (Scott Bakula) location, since he’s being held by…

Quantum of Solace (2008) – Marc Forster

Daniel Craig’s second outing as Ian Fleming’s James Bond, is the spy movie of the week as I continue exploring the original 007 novels. I have a few issues with this film, one of them being the running time, this is the first Bond film in quite sometime that isn’t two hours or more, and…

Tentacles (1977) – Ovidio G. Assonitis

This Italian made California shot creature feature that wants to be the next Jaws, or even the next Orca, is the next film up in DK Canada’s so fun Monsters in the Movies book. It definitely fails on that front, an angry, human hungry, giant octopus… ok. The real scary thing is some of the…

Sawkill Girls (2018) – Claire Legrand

So I needed to try something different this week, to break up the cycle of books I’ve been reading, but obviously, I had to find it interesting and enjoyable. Claire Legrand’s Sawkill Girls is just that. I came across the title in a list of books to fill that Stranger Things craving, and was duly…
