IT

Cast of IT 1

Did Stephen King frighten us? Did the movie “IT” scare you? Will you have nightmares? And what you going to wear for Halloween? A clown with a red a balloon? Walking slowing in the middle of the road and scaring children to drop their candy for you can grab the candy for yourself? That’s a good idea to do.

What inspires him to write IT? It was Trolls living underneath the bridge or sometimes tunnels. Logically, he came up with sewers drain and the plot was pure psychologically thriller. Even though the movie version was rated “R”, but it was intentionally for NC17, meaning more gruesome and other wilder scenes for the children can do very inappropriate things, that was in the book, not in the movie. They decided to stick to the movie and edit some of the scenes and make it appropriately for rated “R”, which makes sense.

The plot is seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine is about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise.

Even the book was terrified to read, the description in the book gave me nightmares. Here’s a tip: never fall asleep in the book that you selected to read and do a book report for high school. My sister scared me by popping a red balloon. Even scarier, she had on clown makeup on, it was her mascara bleeding from her face and it wasn’t Halloween.

Did you know the novel “It” won the British Fantasy Award in 1987, and received nominations for the Locus and World Fantasy Awards that same year? And it was a bestselling novel in 1986 too.

Wow, that’s impressive. The best way to learn English is to read a Stephen King novel. In 1966, King studied at the University of Maine, graduating in 1970 with a Bachelor of Arts in English and he was a certified English Teacher in high school. He found out the teacher pay was not good enough but his writing was selling and making more money than teaching.

The first chapter of the movie will be about the kids and the second chapter will be about the adults. The movie will come either in one or two years. Just read the book.

The movie itself was scary to watch and the language of the guys was a mouthful. There a few gruesome scenes not too many and a fatal fall. Did he survey? It’s scary and gruesome to watch. So go see it.

Annabelle: The Creation

Anna MP

If you love horror movies and suspense, Annabelle: The Creation will scare the crap out of you. Ever since, the first Annabelle movie wasn’t that scary enough, but it was a true story in the 1970’s when two nurses found this old Raggedy Ann doll laying around somewhere and decided to keep it and not knowing it was evil, this was a true case file from the Ed and Lorraine Warren a Roman Catholic couple who were highly controversial American paranormal investigators.

When you watch this movie, this movie will suck the air out of the theater leaving you breathless. The quietness and the stillness will make it scarier and creepy. Everything is standing still until a movement that scares the crap out of you, and you pee in your pants.

This movie will make you jump,  but don’t watch it alone, bring a friend and a pillow.

Talitha Bateman 3

 

Polio-stricken Janice (Talitha Bateman, above ) and her BFF Linda (the lively Lulu Wilson, below), who basically are shunned by the older girls and forced to bunk together. In no time, they discover the dead daughter’s old bedroom, as well as one used as a space for designing doll outfits!  They see the demonic doll, and it takes the life of its own and stalks the inhabitants of the house.

Lulu Wilson 3

David Sandberg, the director, finds inventive ways to position her around the house without losing the idea she is just a doll and not a living organism. For example, like Chucky from Child’s Play. Chucky Child’s Play is based on the same premise as Annabelle, but scarier.

The Conjuring universe as created by James Wan, and, like Conjuring 2, has ratcheted up the stakes for all to follow. And you can bet that if moviegoers react like the crowd, I saw it with an audience and it was good. I pee twice in my pants. There will be more, Wan and Peter Safran produced for New Line Cinema and Warner Bros, which unleashes the terror on Friday.

By the way, if the movie is too scary. You can leave, but make sure you watch a hilarious TV show or movie – especially comedies to get the horror images and sound from the movie out of your head. You will never know what will follow you and if you hear creepy noises in your house alone or with a couple friends with you. Watching horror movies can have that affect on the mind with the images and sound.  Watch the movie in the afternoon and later go to church.

Do you plan to see Annabelle: The Creation? Let us know what you think.
