Don watching 3 recent horror films; Spell, The Dark and The Wicked, and His House

Each are unique to one another.

The least heavy is Spell, which tells story about a man survived a plane crash ends up taken care by a family who are practicing Hoodoo rituals. I enjoyed the ending, because rarely a horror film ends with a satisfying ending.

The Dark and The Wicked is exactly like the title; it's truly and entirely dark from start to finish. I would say this is the most scary among these three films. There is some message in the story as well, about grievances. The story itself is a bit too heavy for me. The scares are top-notch.

His House is the one that I disappointed the most. Not that because its a bad movie. About a couple from an African country seeking asylum in London. They are given a house by the authority, and some sinister beings are haunting them, followed them because of some bad deeds that they have done before coming to London. The story is actually great, but not the scares. Its quite moving and strong, but I came for the horror and I didn't get much of it from this.

Next in my list is Love and Monsters. Stay tuned (I wonder if there is anyone reading all these reviews I posted lol).

{Ed001's Note - I always read them mate. It saves me the bother of watching them if you don't like them. Those you do like I make a note of and if I ever have spare time and they are on I will take a look.}

Ah. Thanks Ed01. So much.

What I really like about films, oftenly they give me the opportunities to know more about other countries. I don't travel, so films are my only way to "travel" around the world.

As you know, I love football as well. One tradition I know about you guys is, making songs for players that you guys love or adore. I never ever heard one before. When watching matches on TVs, there is no way you could hear these tunes clearly.

One scene in His House, one of the character went into some sort of bar with people watching a Stoke City match. They were singing a song on Peter Crouch, and this character sang along. And now I know how that Peter Crouch song sounds like.

I think I got it all wrong with my review for His House. They are not in London. The character did ask a barber "is this London?". How come Londoners watching a Stoke City match, and even singing while watching it, right?

{Ed001's Note - they could have been the local Stoke supporters group.}
