VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN (2015): New Trailer With Daniel Radcliffe & James McAvoy

Starring two of my favourite British Actors, Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, this version of the Frankenstein tale should be interesting. Firstly because it’s from Igor’s perspective and second, it’s set before the Frankenstein we’re most familiar with today emerges.

Without further a do…

Directed by Paul Paul McGuigan of Lucky Number Slevin (2006), (a movie I recommend), bring on November 25th.

Happy Victor Frankenstein 🙂

FINAL DESTINATION (2000): A Scary Movie I Watched & Loved

Starring Devon Sawa, Ali Larter and Kerr Smith, the story of Final Destination follows a class of teenage students who board an airplane to Paris. Just before take off, one of the students, Alex, experiences an unsettling vision. Alex’s vivid and terrifying vision marks the beginning of a series of mysterious happenings that he’ll need to figure out in order to keep himself and his friends alive.

Directed by James Wong, Final Destination is filled with several well executed moments, one of which is what occurs towards the end of the first twenty minutes. Another great moment is a very realistic and rather frightening bathroom scene.

Though scary, this isn’t the kind of scary movie that robs one of perfectly restful sleep. As such, if you’re like me, watch it to be scared and thrilled for an hour and a half. Then relax whilst knowing that a good nights rest is yours to enjoy. Needless to say, should you be  afraid of flying, maybe don’t watch the movie too close to upcoming plane travel.

If you’ve never seen the film and plan to, please remember to watch the original first – if not only the original. I know someone who never saw the first but watched Final Destination 2 (2003) and unsurprisingly wasn’t very thrilled.

I personally thought it a bad sign that the lead Actor of the first film was nowhere to be seen on the cast list for the second movie. It’s an even bigger bad sign because he wasn’t killed off in the original film. With all this information, I made the clearly wise decision to skip Final Destination 2 and all the sequels that followed. All four of them.

Happy Film Loving

MAGGIE (2015): I’m liking The Intriguing Stillness…

If I’m completely honest, I haven’t been excited about an Arnold Schwarzenegger film in a while. But… how interesting is this trailer for his latest movie with Abigail Breslin?

Synopsis…‘A teenage girl in the Midwest becomes infected by an outbreak of a disease that slowly turns the infected into cannibalistic zombies. During her transformation, her loving father stays by her side’

I’m also really hoping that the film is more drama / thriller than it is horror. You guessed it, because I’m a massive chicken.

Happy Maggie 🙂
