Movie Mention: Mama

23 Jan

I loved reading about all of your writing spaces on my last post. It’s interesting to see our similarities and differences as readers and writers, and I’ll be sure to find other aspects of our lives we can share soon. But, today, I wanted to suggest a movie to see this weekend!

1-Mama-PosterLast night, I saw Guillermo del Toro‘s new horror movie, Mama.

After five years, Lucas’ nieces, Victoria and Lilly, are found abandoned in the woods, and no one can understand how two little girls survived the harsh elements. Hoping to give them a home again, Lucas and his girlfriend, Annabel, take in the disturbed children–but the girls are more troubled than they could image, and it wasn’t the forest that changed them.

Not to toot my own horn (I’m sure you all are the same, as avid writers and readers seem to have a knack for it), but I’m normally really good at guessing plots, and I didn’t see the ending coming.

As always, the producer of Pan’s Labyrinth and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark delicately creates a twisted backstory for a complete and unique horror experience. If you’re looking for a scary movie to go see with friends, go out to the movies and watch this flick. You won’t be disappointed.

Movie Mention: Insidious

29 Oct

Sorry for the lack of posts! I’ve been busy with school and Halloween. BUT—speaking of Halloween—I watched a scary movie recently that I think is a great Halloween flick: Insidious.

After moving into a new house, a family starts having strange occurrences. Once one of the children falls into a coma, the family decides to move, thinking the house is haunted. But it may not be the house. And it may not be a haunting. It’s definitely not what they think—and I was completely wrong the entire time I was guessing. Insidious is not only a different kind of a scary movie, but the plot is unique, and I actually was into it (because, let’s be real, most scary movies today aren’t that good or scary—but I liked this one).

So, if you’re looking for a scary movie, but a different kind of scary—get Insidious. (It’s also PG-13.)

Watch the trailer here.

If you don’t like scary, you could always stick with Hocus Pocus or The Little Vampire. (Those are my favorite).
