Marrowbone

The Secret of Marrowbone (2018) or Marrowbone (original and much better title) IMDB Synopsis A young man and his three younger siblings, who have kept secret the death of their beloved mother in order to remain together, are plagued by a sinister presence in the sprawling manor in which they live. *Spoilers* Sometimes I’m in the mood for something gentle and spooky, much like … Read More Marrowbone

Office (Film) Review

May-hem month seems to be leaning towards Asia Extreme movies so far and I for one am here for it. While this week’s pick is nowhere near as bat shit crazy as the last, it’s still pretty out there in terms of premise and delivery. There’s a strong moral to the movie too which I’ll address but for now, my thoughts. *Spoilers* Office (2015) … Read More Office (Film) Review

Weekly Digest

This week I am seriously digging: Atlanta, Season 2 The first season of Atlanta was so good, I feel like I’ve been waiting a life time for it to return. And now Donald Glover and friends (including the amazing Lakeith Stanfield) are back and it’s just as good as ever. Not only is deeply observational, it also has a lot to say about the … Read More Weekly Digest

The Woman in the Window (Book) Review

I read this book in tandem with my friend Heather and it was so much fun. We both raced through it in a couple of days and compared notes as we went. This book is impossible to put down, something authors are always quoted as saying for the cover of novels but in this case it’s true. Anna Fox is a shut in who … Read More The Woman in the Window (Book) Review

Weekly Digest

This week I’m digging: Marcella IMDB Synopsis Marcella Backland left the Metropolitan Police for the sake of her family, only to have her husband leave her. She returns to her job on the murder squad, investigating a case that seems disturbingly familiar to her. Fucking hell. This show is great, Anna Friel is brilliant and men are the worst, obviously. There are a lot … Read More Weekly Digest

Final Girl (Film) Review

Week 2 of Films That Remind Us of Each Other and Jill chose this. Which I was kind of excited about – my girl gets me. Men suck and some even more than others. Predatory men for instance, which is all too topical at the moment. That makes this an interesting pick for reasons beyond me being into the Final Girl Trope. But is … Read More Final Girl (Film) Review

Final Girls (Book) Review

I love me a Final Girl. The trope is one of my favourites, even though the rules of being a true FG could make your head spin clean off your neck. Someone who hates the label though is Quincy Carpenter, the third survivor to join the infamous trio of the media dubbed Finals Girls. Comprised of Miss Carpenter (the amnesiac), Lisa Milner (the original) … Read More Final Girls (Book) Review

The Snowman (Book) Review

In the spirit of Fall, colder evenings and crispy clean duvet covers, I added this crime thriller to my Autumn Reading List. It’s recently been adapted for the big screen which could be interesting, though I’ll probably wait to stream it at home. There’s talk of it not really living up to the book – which is pretty good actually. It’s no Red Dragon, … Read More The Snowman (Book) Review

Blow Out (Film) Review

April will be Blog Free and Die Hard Month which is always a good one for us as it clears films off our Netflix lists and doesn’t restrict us (or make us think too hard). I’m a fan of not thinking too hard right now. This week is my pick and I think I’ve started the month with a bang. Like, literally with a … Read More Blow Out (Film) Review

The Girl on the Train (Film) Review

A mini-film review today, which is my third in a week. I’m not a particularly good reviewer let’s face it but I do enjoy getting my thoughts down, keeping track of what I’ve been watching and ruining plots for the rest of you (kidding). I also enjoyed this film, which seems to have been getting mixed reviews as far as I can see. I … Read More The Girl on the Train (Film) Review

My Book of 2015: YOU by Caroline Kepnes

I can’t recommend this thriller highly enough and have so far rammed it down the throat of at least three fellow readers and gifted it more than once. It’s the kind of book that you recommend but then instantly regret doing in case it’s not received as well as you’d like. So far reports have been fantastic but it still makes me nervous. This … Read More My Book of 2015: YOU by Caroline Kepnes

I Let You Go (Book) Review

Before I begin this, please be aware that I’m going to *spoiler the fuck out of it*. (Pardon my French). It’s impossible to review without letting a few things slip and since the premise of this book is built on a twist, it’s really not fair of me to just put it out there without warning. If you’re intending to read this book then … Read More I Let You Go (Book) Review
