Set in the summer of 1947, Dr Faraday, a respectable country doctor is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall where his mother once worked. Little does Faraday know that he’s about to find out just how closely and terrifyingly the family of his new patient’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

From director Lenny Abrahamson, The Little Stranger is based on the novel by Lucinda Coxon and Sarah Waters. Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling and Will Poulter star…

The mystery intrigues me. Yet it’s mainly Poulter and his character that have me most interested.

A world-renowned dance company is the setting and the story is about a darkness that swirls at its centre. One that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist.

Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton and Mia Goth star while Luca Guadagnino directs…

The slight Black Swan (2010) vibes help; however it’s really Swinton and my curiosity for seeing Johnson doing well in a film outside of the Fifty Shades of Grey movies; these are  my reasons for watching.

Lutz Ebersdorf, Angela Winkler, Ingrid Caven and Elena Fokina also star.

Suspiria Release Dates: November 2nd, 2018 (US)…

Four decades ago in Halloween (1978), Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) escaped a killing spree on Halloween night. Mike Myers, the man responsible is back and so comes the long awaited confrontation Laurie has been praying for.

Directed by David Gordon Green; Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Virginia Gardner and Toby Huss star…

Nostalgia, that’s why I’m drawn to this one. It also helps that slasher horror movies are not the kind that give me nightmares. My favourite moment in this trailer is the scene with the wardrobe door. Fingers, toes and everything are crossed for a very entertaining result.

Miles Robbins, Will Patton and Nick Castle also star.

Halloween Release Dates: October 19th, 2018 (US)…

THE PREDATOR (2018): New Trailer From Jacob Tremblay, Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown…

In new action / adventure / horror The Predator, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race, after a young boy accidentally triggers the return of universe’s most lethal hunters.

Directed by Shane Black; Jacob Tremblay, Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown star…

This is a very good teaser trailer but not for a second would I ever think that an 11 year-old actor would be the one to put me at ease in terms of the expected quality level of a new movie. But then, not every 11 year-old is a very talented Canadian called Jacob Tremblay.

I’m very much looking forward to this, in part because of the beautiful bass in Boyd Holbrook’s voice.

Yvonne Strahovski, Thomas Jane, Keegan-Michael Key and Lochlyn Munro also star.

The Predator Release Dates: September 14th, 2018 (US & UK)…

Directed by Ruben Fleischer; Tom Hardy, Jenny Slate, Michelle Williams and Riz Ahmed are the stars of the latest, Venom trailer, an action / sci-fi / horror movie about a complex, badass lethal protector…

Thanks to all the acting talent, editing and special effects, this trailer is a thing of beauty. One that probably brought a tear or two to the eyes of many a film lover. Probably.

I can’t wait to experience all that appears to be different compared to other Marvel movies.

THE MEG (2018): New Trailer From Ruby Rose, Jason Statham, Rainn Wilson…

Starring Jason Statham, Ruby Rose and Rainn Wilson, The Meg is a Jon Turteltaub directed action / horror / sci-fi movie about Jonas Taylor, a man who must confront his fears of the 70 foot shark he escaped from to save those trapped in a sunken submersible.

Pushing aside my thoughts of a modern Moby Dick and Steven Spielberg’s Jaws (1975), I want to see this one for the special effects. It’s also quite likely that I’m going to be rooting for the ‘fish’.

A QUIET PLACE (2018): The Things I Liked…

Starring Emily Blunt, co-written / directed by, and starring John Krasinski, A Quiet Place is a scary movie I wanted to see regardless of my characteristic of being ‘easily spooked into insomnia and nightmares.’ 

Set during a post apocalyptic future, Blunt and Krasinski are a couple with three children. In an effort to stay alive, the family are forced to live in silence because simply not doing so will mean they’re heard and subsequently become prey for mysterious creatures that hunt by sound.

I enjoyed this movie and was shocked, moved and impressed by the story, characters, performances plus the execution of the most memorable moments. A Quiet Place did a good job of showing the audience the general cleverness one would need in order to survive in a world where sound becomes deadly. 

I absolutely want to believe that I’d survive living in silence; however there may be too much about me that is loud. A surprise sneeze attack among many other things would surely mean the end of me.

Besides making me an even bigger fan of Blunt and Krasinski, A Quiet Place made me appreciate my freedom to make sound. It reminded me of the the gargantuan challenge that is parenting. It also left me feeling even more empowered and powerful as a young woman, something I wasn’t expecting.

If I had to pick one thing that I wasn’t totally in love with about this movie, it would be the jarring move from silence to a seemingly super loud sound/ musical score. 

Watch it because it’s good and A Quiet Place will likely not result in a single moment of sleeplessness. It didn’t for me.. yet!
