Cool: Suspiria (2018)

6. 6. 18 A remake of an old horror classic…Suspiria.     A young American dancer travels to Europe to perfect her dancing in a renowned dance academy. She quickly comes to unravel the academy’s sinister history when a series of grisly murders ensue. The film stars Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Chloe Grace Moretz.

This remake will be in theaters November 2, 2018.  Enjoy your Thursday, be blessed.   Image source: Imdb & Screenrant

Film Review: Annabelle Creation

August 14 / 17 Hello…hope everyone had a good and resting weekend. Saw Annabelle: Creation Saturday and I wasn’t disappointed. This is a prequel and better than the first Annabelle film. Creation takes place twelve years, 1955 after a doll maker, Samuel Mullins (Anthony LaPaglia) and his wife Ester (Miranda Otto) lose their only child, a daughter named Annabelle ‘Bee’, to a horrible accident.

What I like about this film and The Conjuring films is that you really don’t need a whole lot of blood, gore, and guts to make it scary. What makes …

This supernatural horror film is different from films that you’re used to seeing. It keeps you guessing and you want to know more. Jay Height is your average college student.
