(1961)

Regarding Until Dawn bc I love this game so much

OK I know Josh stopped to consume his drugs which btw are prescribed for major depressive disorder, leading us to believe that he was misdiagnosed since a young age, but is there a possibility that the whole game was just Josh’s big imagination? Like, nothing in the woods ever happened?

I mean, Dr Hill looked very real in the game until I’ve read on the internet that he was just Josh’s imagination. What if his whole group of friends was just some sort of imagination and Wendigos don’t exist?

This game is so sick I swear. 😂

The Blood Queen

~ a Saint McGuinness novella~

 Releasing: 1/7/2020

Blurb: A dark ghost is hunting young women along the east coast. Out of the fourteen linked to the spirit, only two have been found- their bodies tortured and drained of blood. The Paranormal Detectives and FBI agents working the case know two things for certain: the ghost is a woman, and she was smuggled into Boston from Eastern Europe.

Saint McGuinness hasn’t been to her hometown of Boston in several years, haunted by the nightmares of her past. But when a good friend comes to her door and asks for help hunting those responsible for smuggling the dark ghost into the city, she can’t say no. After witnessing the carnage that took place fifteen years prior, when the city was brought to its knees by the summoned Dark, Saint will do whatever she can to save her old stomping grounds from bleeding again.

Even if that means walking into the one place she never wants to see again- the Dark.

五十一 (51)

The sky was ominously grey that morning. Kazuo, however, thought it was a sort of blessing because it would give him an opportunity to wear the rain jacket that the girl had bought him months ago. He was always getting stuck in the rain without his umbrella, and so on his birthday, she had given it to him. She said the green would match his eyes, and he blushingly accepted it. He was profusely grateful and touched, but he had not had the chance to wear it, since it hadn’t rained since then. He worried that she might be put-off by him wearing it if it was not an actual date, but also worried she might be mad if he didn’t wear it if it was a date. While he agonized over it, there was a knock at his door.

Kazuo ran to the door, worried that he had misheard her and that they had agreed to meet at his house instead of at the observatory. He opened the door to find Sadashi there and he was admittedly relieved.

“Oh, hi Sadashi. Sorry, I wasn’t expecting you.”

“I know. I just happened to be in the neighborhood. Can I come in?” she said innocently.

Kazuo looked at the clock on the wall to consider the time. He had already spent too long trying to find an outfit, and if he wasn’t careful, he would miss the bus.

“Um, sure… But I have to leave in a little bit.”

“Oh yeah?” Sadashi said, taking off her shoes in the entryway. “Where are you off to?”

“I’m… just going out,” he sheepily said. He hadn’t considered how Sadashi would feel about him going on a date with her best friend, and truthfully, he still wasn’t sure that it was what was happening. Since she seemed unaware, he thought it might be best for her to not know until there was something to know.

“Oh, okay,” she said, letting it go, “Hey, how about some tea? It’s chilly outside.”

Kazuo again looked at the clock and figured he still had enough time. He agreed and walked to the kitchen to boil the water. Sadashi went to the living room. Between the three friends’ houses, they always found themselves at Kazuo’s. Her house was too far, and Kazuo’s father was always at work, so they felt a little more freedom in a house all to themselves.

Sadashi nervously sat down on the floor while she turned over what she might do in her head.

“The kettle’s on,” Kazuo said, as he joined her.

They sat for a short while in silence.

“Hey,” Sadashi suddenly said to Kazuo, “I’ve got an idea. Let’s hang out in your room!”

“My room?” he responded, “Why? If you want a book or something, I can bring it to you.”

“Well it’s never been just the two of us in there before…” she said.

Kazuo wasn’t sure what the appeal of that was. It was true, he had never had anyone alone in his room before, but he couldn’t imagine it to be any different than having a group of people in his room. Before he could protest, Sadashi stood up, and walked over to it. She opened the door to find a mess of clothes strewn about.

“Woah,” she said, “It looks like a tsunami struck in here.”

“Oh yeah… I… couldn’t decide what to wear,” he said. He noticed some of his underwear sitting in a pile, and rushed over to stuff it back in his drawer. He hoped she had not seen, and when he looked at her face for confirmation, she seemed nervous for some reason. She looked like she was about to say something, but just then, the kettle started boiling.

“Oh, excuse me,” Kazuo said before leaving the room to prepare the tea.

Film Review | Ford V. Ferrari (2019)

I came into this expecting a run of the mill Oscar-bait film that glorified a car as a symbol of masculinity, y’know like that movie Rush. And it’s all of these things, BUT it calls out toxic masculinity at the same time and shows the audience how pointless and dangerous tying your identity to something as stupid as a machine can be.

Add on top of that the most charismatic I’ve ever seen Christian Bale in a movie, and BOOM, you got me. I had no idea about this history here, or even what Le Mans is, but now I know and it’s super interesting. I even learned about cars a little bit, it’s crazy.

It’s a thrill ride that will make you feel dangerous driving home after. You gotta see it, it’ll probably get an Oscar nom or two.

Film Review | Knives Out (2019)

Rian Johnson, you son of a bitch. You did it again.

A whodunit that did it. The knowing twists and surprising turns from the top to the bottom in setting up what you expect and showing you something different as the film unfolds itself through the use of Daniel Craig’s detective character. It’s beautifully shot and the ensemble cast fucking SHOWS UP to play.

Last Jedi haters, you can fuck off, because this boy knows how to make a movie. Sorry he made a great one followed by ANOTHER great one. Can’t wait for more.

New Authors

These next two books came to me by way of NetGalley, and both were new authors for me.  I can promise, I will be reading more from them in the future!

The Caretakers by Eliza Maxwell

image
  • Tessa makes movies.  Not the action-packed, edge of your seat kind with Tom Cruise  on the big screen, but more like the Making a Murder docu-series a la Netflix.  She was able to get an innocent man released prison, but while she’s still more or less riding high off of that major coup,  she finds out that her mother has suddenly passed away.  This puts Tessa back in her hometown, staying in the family house, staying in her old room with her twin sister just down the hall.  As if this isn’t enough of a blow, the man Tessa was able to get free has gone out on a rampage, leaving Tessa questioning every decision she’s ever made.  When her mother’s will leaves Tessa and her sister a huge old estate they never knew about, Tessa takes the opportunity to take refuge at the old home, meeting the older sisters living in the caretakers cottage on the edge of the property in the process.  I really enjoyed this book, and I feel I’m not doing it justice in the description because there really was a lot going on, HOWEVER, the author did a fantastic job keeping the story lines clear.  Like so many books I’ve read lately, this one didn’t need the last 2 pages or so—it just pushed the story’s credibility beyond necessity.  I still thought it was a really good book, and I’ll be adding Maxwell to my list of authors to watch for going forward for sure!

The Vanishing Season by Joanna Schaffhausen

image
  • Ellery Hathaway isn’t your usual detective with a dark past.  Well, she is, but not what you might think.  When Ellery was 14 years old, she survived being captured (and tortured) by a serial killer.   And although that killer was caught, prosecuted, and is serving the rest of his life behind bars, Ellery’s made connections between three murders in the last three years in her small town—can she figure out who’s behind this before it becomes four deaths in four years?  This was a new author for me, but I found the storytelling to be on point and really enjoyed the suspense.  I wasn’t crazy about “who” the killer turned out to be (I’m not going to say more on that because I don’t want to give anything away), but it was still a good book and I’ll watch for more from her in the future.

"The Death Parade" (February 15, 1951)
Agnes Moorehead
"The Death Parade" (February 15, 1951)

A woman finds an unsent letter on the sidewalk and the contents threaten death to a stranger. She embarks on a race against time to find the mystery woman and warn her before it’s too late.

It’s a variation on “Sorry, Wrong Number” as Agnes Moorehead stars again as a woman who learns of an impending murder but in this case the intended victim is somebody else. And, like in that classic Suspense drama, Ms. Moorehead shines as a decidedly unsympathetic protagonist.

"The Trap" (June 16, 1949)
Agnes Moorehead
"The Trap" (June 16, 1949)

A woman is tormented by an unseen intruder in her home…and the uninvited guest seems determined to drive the woman out.

Another great performance from the “First Lady of Suspense” as Agnes Moorehead fights for her home (and her sanity) against an encroaching resident hiding in her house. It’s a creepy story that culminates in an intense climax and a chilling finale.

Happy Birthday, Agnes Moorehead (December 6, 1900 – April 30, 1974)

The legendary star was nominated for four Academy Awards; her credits include Citizen Kane, Dark Passage, Johnny Belinda, and Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte. Classic TV fans will remember her Emmy-award winning villainous turn on The Wild Wild West, her performance in the classic Twilight Zone episode “The Invaders,” and her eight seasons as Endora on Bewitched.

In addition to her screen successes, Moorehead was one of radio’s most acclaimed actresses. She was the first actress to play “the lovely Margot Lane” on The Shadow (opposite her Mercury Theatre co-star Orson Welles), and she was the “first lady of Suspense.” Among her legendary credits on that series is “Sorry, Wrong Number,” a program she starred in eight times over the run of Suspense. Moorehead was the first actress to portray Superman’s Kryptonian mother Lara in the premiere radio episode of The Adventures of Superman.

Happy Birthday to the “Hitchcock of the airwaves,” William Spier (December 5, 1906 – May 30, 1973) - a longtime producer-director of Suspense.

Before he took the reins of “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills,” Spier directed and co-wrote the prestigious series The March of Time. Years later, many of the actors he worked with - including Agnes Moorehead, Joseph Cotten, and Orson Welles - would visit Suspense.

Spier directed the early years of the program and oversaw nearly every aspect of the production. He established the formula of tense dramas that kept the resolution from the audience (and the characters) until the last possible moment. During his tenure, Suspense produced some of its most memorable shows, including the initial productions of “Sorry, Wrong Number” and the supernatural chiller “The House in Cypress Canyon.” Spier also lured big screen stars to the microphone (Cary Grant remarked that Suspense was a series “where I get a good chance to act”) and made the program a must-listen for audiences.

Along with Suspense, Spier’s most memorable radio series may be his adaptation of Dashiell Hammett’s legendary private eye in The Adventures of Sam Spade. One of radio’s best detective shows, Sam Spade aired from 1946 to 1951. The series ran into trouble when Dashiell Hammett’s political affiliations dropped him in front of HUAC, and eventually the author’s name would be stripped from the program. Spier remained on the series throughout the run, even when its star Howard Duff was kicked to the curb due to similar anti-Communist hysteria.

"The Night Reveals" (December 9, 1943)
Cornell Woolrich
"The Night Reveals" (December 9, 1943)

An insurance investigator’s hunt for an arsonist leads him to his home. Could his wife be the pyromaniac setting fires all over the city?

“The Night Reveals” was published as a short story by Cornell Woolrich in 1936, and it was adapted four times for Suspense. Frederic March starred in two of the versions (the first on March 2, 1943 and the second on May 26, 1949). This episode starring Robert Young and Margo was the second production, and Keenan Wynn starred in a third presentation on April 18, 1946.
