Summary

Rachel’s niece died suddenly and her niece’s friends told her about a video tape. Whoever watched it will die after seven days. Her niece watched it.

As she investigated into this information, she discovered the cursed tape. Rachel watched it….Then, she made her ex-boyfriend (a video expert) watch it to find out what’s wrong with it. He laughed at how she seemed so bothered by it. So, Rachel left and continued to look for clues. As she researched deeper into the creepy images, she began to discover the owner of the images.

One day, her son, Noah, who was able to sense the supernatural, watched the tape when he couldn’t sleep! What shall she do?

Conclusion

This was one of the classic horror movies that was adapted from a book. I personally read the book first before I watched then movie. Many of the images in this movie appeared in many spoofs of pop culture.

Photo Of The Day: Birds Of A Feather

To be free as a bird

They say

But what is the point

Of freedom

If one is alone

Wandering aimlessly

Halloween Decor: Drawings On Pumpkins

Halloween is coming up! This year I had the opportunity to have access to lots of large pumpkins. Instead of carving all of them into jack o’lanterns, I decided to decorate them with a simple black marker for fun!

The inspiration behind these cute gourds, were mythical creatures. I had so much fun drawing each one!

How are you decorating your pumpkins this year?

Movie Review: Werewolves Within

Image Courtesy of Wikipedia

Summary

Forest Ranger Finn arrived in small town Beaverfield as their new ranger. The town’s mail carrier, Cecily, immediately became very friendly and appeared to be very interested in him. She introduced him to all the interesting and very quirky residents of the town.

One day, a big snowstorm appeared and all they’d power was out. The power generator was destroyed by large animal and they were stranded. Suddenly, the animal attacked a small dog, causing the residents to panic. Afterwards, despite trying the barricade themselves in a house the animal entered and bit off a man’s hand. Then, the body of a missing husband appeared under a porch. The environmentalist among them announced that after her observation, the animal was a werewolf!

Things became complicated as each residents accused each other to be the werewolf….

Conclusion

The video game of the same name inspired this indie film. It was very quirky and fun with a bit of gore thrown in. Definitely a film for the next Halloween party!

Worldmark Victoria

This cozy resort might not be the most extravagant or luxurious, but it contained everything we needed to be comfortable.

We had access to our own hot tub!

One feature that I liked was the Murphy bed because that meant more people could stay! Having a full kitchen meant that we could make our own meals whenever we wanted for the little ones. Sometimes, when we travelled with little ones, a kitchen helped to make things more convenient.

The rooms were clean and tidy, with all the essential personal care products. To top it off, the view of Victoria was beautiful!

Art Inspiration: The Guard

Ever wonder what the guard

Is thinking about?

To see all the gruesome

And violent behaviours

That arise

Each time a game

Begins….
