Hello, it’s been a while. But I’m just in time for Halloween.

Halloween; a time where I usually spend hours applying the bloodiest makeup imaginable, then hitting the local shops with my friend Alice to showcase our masterpieces. Usually I don’t even dress up as a specific person or idea, instead I tend to create my own character, with names, backstories and everything…but that’s a writer for you, I guess.

“It’s about a girl who gets turned into a swan and she needs love to break the spell, but her prince falls for the wrong girl so she kills herself.”


Black Swan (2010), a psychological thriller revolving around the production of Tchaikovsky‘s Swan Lake ballet. Directed by Darren Aronofsky, one of my favorite directors, perhaps most known for his disturbing psychological drama film, Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan for me is not only one of Aronofsky’s best works but also a masterpiece in the world of cinema.

Felt compelled to write a quick blog post on how amazing the teaser trailer is for The Reverent, an upcoming thriller staring one of my favorite actors ever, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Most of the time I think trailers are just awful. They either represent a film completely different than it actually is (like with what happened with Drive for example), give crucial spoilers away, or they use all of the ‘good’ parts in the trailer to disguise the fact that the film is a complete waste of time and money.

But the trailer for The Reverent just blew me away. I don’t know anything about the movie, what it’s about, what genre it even belongs to, but all I do know is, I am extremely excited to watch it.

This is how you do a trailer, let the scenes do the talking. It’s all in the subtlety.

A wave of nostalgia washes over me when I think about watching The Secret Garden when I was younger. The main character ‘Mary Lennox’ finds a key in a hidden room in the mansion she lives in. I always dreamed of  having a key like that, which could open something I could discover myself, something only I would know about. In this way, props in films are part of the story themselves, part of the escapism, and the magic of cinemas power to submerge you entirely in the story and the characters themselves.

The Nightmare, directed by Rodney Ascher, (the same guy who directed Room 237 about The Shining and the conspiracies surrounding it) is a 2015 documentary thriller about the frightening real life condition/phenomena of sleep paralysis.

I’ve never experienced sleep paralysis myself, but I’ve read enough about it to know that it is definitely not something I want to experience. People who experience sleep paralysis become unable to move or even speak just as they are falling asleep or waking up. They also experience terrifying physical experiences of ‘entity’s’ coming into their room and interacting with them, along with audio/visual hallucinations.
