Film Review: Hush

December 17 / 16 Hello….I’ve recently seen this film on Netflix and I actually quite like it. Hush is one of those films that gets you tensed up in knots and not knowing what to expect around the corner. Directed by Mike Flanagan (Oculus), the film stars Kate Siegel as Madison ‘Maddie’ Young. Maddie is an author, who is deaf and mute. At 13 years of age, she lost her hearing due a bad bout of bacterial meningitis. She lives in isolation in a perfect home in the woods. She’s not entirely alone. She has her neighbor and friend Sarah (Samantha Sloyan), who wants to learn sign language and loves one of Maddie’s books. Unfortunately Maddie’s perfect isolation is broken when a serial killer enters the picture. He realizes that Maddie can’t hear, so what does he do? He’s gonna take advantage if it, but as he soon figures out that it won’t be easy. I remember what director Rob Reiner said during Bravo’s 100 Scariest Movie Moments. “I personally don’t get scared at the Freddies …

Shadow Spotlight: Jack Kirby

December 5 / 16 Hello and Good Morning! Again, since this month will be short, for the next few weeks, I will be cramming lots of things in. The late Jack Kirby is this month’s Shadow Spotlight. With Captain America, the Fantastic Four, X-Men, and the Hulk, Kirby is pretty much a comic legend. Not only with Marvel, but also DC.  I found a documentary film about the man. It’s a five-part documentary, but this will give an insight into who this man was and how much of an influence he was and still is to the comic book world.           You can go to this site, Jack Kirby Museum & Research Center to know more about Kirby’s work. I hope you enjoyed this post. It was great to work on and I’m happy to see the results. Come back for more Wednesday. Enjoy your Monday, be blessed!                               featured images:
