There seems to be an influx of supernatural cinema screenings on at the moment. You have to wonder why they're not waiting until October, to take advantage of Halloween treats and the spooky season, but their loss is definitely our gain!
A friend of mine has already been to see many of the films currently on offer, a couple of them twice! So let's start with her favourite, Warm Bodies (2013). This is your basic paranormal romance, sexing up zombies and giving them a similar status t... Continue reading ...

Okay, so this week I've been looking at Fairy Stories in class and once again, I was the first to admit what I pushover I have always been for fairy tales. When I was a child I absorbed them all, like a sponge soaking up water.
I don't know what it was about them that fired my imagination. Hansel and Gretel terrified me - the thought of a parent deliberately leaving two children alone in the woods was more than I could imagine as a child, especially as I was much-loved by my parents. Little... Continue reading ...
The young man who made this film, while failing to portray a believable character, still managed to create an engaging and admirable piece of film, drawing on popular media and culture in order to create the perfect environments for sharing his skills.

I know I'm not the only one who has a poster on the fridge listing survival techniques in the event of a zombie apocalypse, and I know there is no likelihood of this happening; but sometimes I feel I am the only one who notices the zombies in every day life. I was one myself last week!
I had a rotten cold/flu bug and I felt seriously under the weather, yet I tried to continue my every day routine. I'm not sure that much actually sunk in last week at all! I thought about myself shuffling aro... Continue reading ...

I love The Walking Dead and I enjoyed watching season 4, although it seemed to me to be a little more gory than previous series', however, I might be recanting events through rose coloured glasses... Anyway, I digress.
One of the things that has been prevalent in my household is the back of a computer chair in front of the television screen. Yes, my darling OH has been obscuring my view of the telly while playing on the xbox! Yes, I know, other gaming consoles exist, but in our house the xb... Continue reading ...

This season has "throne" a lot at us. Rob Stark pronounced King of the North, Joffrey pronounced a little bastard by pretty much all who know him.
Sansa Stark must have been filled with relief when Joffrey decided to wed another, but her first real discovery is that she is now alone in Kings Landing with no real friends, and no protection! Sansa was offered an opportunity to escape Kings Landing by Sandor Clegane and I would like to think his offer was made in good faith. He has come to the...

The subject of zombies has
inundated movie theatres since the 1970s and remains a popular part of cult
literature, wowing both television and movie audiences across the globe.
However, the first film of the
genre is White
Zombie, released in 1932, in which a young man turns to the dark arts in
order to wrest the woman he loves from her fiancé, but turns her into a zombie
slave instead with unexpected results.More recent times have seen blood and gore fests, like the 1968 classic,

Well, it has been an incredible couple of weeks here at La Maison Supernatural Supermarket. I've been quite lost without Sky, but as an apology we've been given the added incentive of six months' worth of movies. I quite like the sound of that but with life so hectic I haven't had a minute to really enjoy much.
The only film I've managed to watch so far is Resident Evil: Afterlife which was pretty amazing! Of course, being a fan of the games and genre is par for the course and the graphics ... Continue reading ...
