Scary Books

Movie Reviews: Wilding + Nobody Sleeps In The Woods Tonight + St Agatha

Wilding (2018)

Brad Dourif and Liv Tyler star in this dull 'horror'. A girl is in a murky situation, she is kept locked up like a flower in the attic by Dourif. This was wearyingly predictable and increasingly ineffective and grotesquely boring. This tries for morbid exuberance and theatrical insanity.


This was not sagacious and years pass. There are no uncomfortable acts of desperation. There is bad old age makeup. She escapes and nonsense takes place. There is cultural inextricability and chronic and latent hostility. There are of course, consequences.


There is faux ingenuity and this has a complete inability to scare. This causes deep frustration and the girl gets no therapy. She lives with cop Liv Tyler and her brother. The girl seems to have minimal negative effects. There are moral judgments and she has a bath while Liv Tyler shaves her legs for her. Okay then. There is a less than rapturous reception for this unpalatable film. The brother makes out with the girl who is called Anna.


There is no moral canvas. A guy lives in the woods wrapped in what looks like a thrift store fur rug. This was not comprehensible and there are inequities. There is a reveal and choices have a devastating effect. There is disreputableness and truth is intimated. Anna is not human, like duh.


There are secrets and this was ridiculous. Watching this is to your detriment. This was not innovative. People do over dramatising and catastropising. Anna is subjected to unfair and unjust behaviour. Actions are misguided. This was empty and devoid of meaning. There is gurning and no integrity or openness. Anna in her true form ends up watching the Northern Lights with her baby.


Best Lines:

“Stay inside.”


“Is he in the better place?”


~
Nobody Sleeps In The Woods Tonight (2020)

This is a Polish 'horror' about teens sent to an anti-tech camp. This was dubbed. People who've dropped out of life and are owning their loserdom are dumped in the woods. Very little thought went into this at all. This is heading for someplace very bad. A devastating threat lurks or something. There are social decisions.


This causes increasing frustration and is something lethally dangerous out there or not? Will it please show up? This is not exactly Deiderot. This was a wasted opportunity and fretful teens are stupid. There is cultural inextricability and there are inextricable relationships. This was profoundly wrong and there is a communal terror.


There is no psychological devastation. This was not distressing. There is self indulgence and excesses. This was harmlessness. There is a poor dead deer. This was dubious and terrible. This was wretched and full of miseries. There are toxic emotions and this was not a terrifying prospect. Cantankerous teens lurk. One feels derision. There is clear contempt and growing disquiet and notoriously volatile brats. There is t&a. Enough! Enough!


Best Lines:

“Admire nature.”


“Cast the evils of modern civilization into the depths of hell.”


“I have my own channel on youtube.”


~
St Agatha (2018)

A woman goes to a convent. An evil convent. This was boring.

Adult Material 1x04 Reviewed

Deep Fake

The normlisation of all this goes on. There are ID checks and Hayley learns her former Bang Cherry coworkers have nothing but contempt for her, she eventually goes back to work with them. Hayely learns Amy faked an STI test. Hayley goes to court. Tom Pain lurks and deserves contempt. He doesn't fall from grace but Hayley hopes he will. People recall that Phoebe exists. Stella thinks Hayley can't win the case and she is right. Stella nags Phoebe to support her awful mother. Hayley has an absolute unwillingness to not be awful. This was clumsy.


Hayley is an idiot on the stand. Why is she such a thick bimbo and ungrateful fool? This was melodramatic. Amy's escorting and bad things happen. Hayley's dishrag of a mother lurks. Amy's in bad situations. Hayley loses the case and needs to pay £40,000 in under 30 days. Rather then sell her beloved house, she decides to film with Tom Pain.


Hayley drinks and passes out on the floor and seems to walk off her liver disease. Tom Pain is beyond her vengeance. Hayley is done with Amy. Carroll is useless and Hayley is thankless. When has Hayley ever done anything but pursue every desire, every whim? Tom P:ain has matchless villainy. Hayley gets ready for the filming in gross detail. If she's broke, how come she always has her nails done?


There is chilling nonchalance about degredation. Carroll finally shows up with no real regret. Hayely is Jolene again and goes back to porn claiming she is now doing ehtical porn. What became of Phoebe's boyfriend? Jolene gets Rich back. Oh come on. Mmmm.


Best Lines:

“Late, pissed, her arse is sagging.”


“It wasn't the bad kind.”

“Maliciously, knowingly wrong.”


“Deserves a lot better than your lazy, teenage contempt.”

Book Reviews: Perfect Little Angels + The Kronos Condition + Scorpianne 👎👎👎

Perfect Little Angels by Andrew Neiderman

This 1989 novel by the author of 'Pin' is terrible and it has a rec from V.C. Andrews on the cover, she was dead when this was published and Neiderman is the ghost writer her publishers have used ever since. People move to the clean, wholesome Elysian field where there's no MTV, instead people take vitamins and act like good obedient children. Of course a crazy abusive doctor is mind controlling the town and abusing his own son.


There are videotapes and coercive control and deadly secrecy. There are many high farcical moments. There is talk of Tom Selleck and music tapes. There are dated attiudes and phrases and new girl Justine has a constant feeling of dread. Her parents can become quite angry and aggrieved. This is not tragic or disturbing.


People have no personal moral conviction. There is generational conflict, sneering at the world, recklessly unforgivable parents, terrible decisions and commitment to being a victim. This book fails totally. The ending has life changing significance as the terribly complacent characters stay in town despite the devastating impact. This has terrible failings. The cold war is talked about and the mind control technique is called RADA. There is exposition, lots of exposition.


Best Lines:

“His father was complaining about the breakdown of values.”


“Don't have anything to do with such girls. Don't even talk to them. And never, ever bring one home to meet your mother or me.”


“Packaged himself and his ideas to be sold to desperate parents looking for easy ways to raise their children.”


“The degeneration of our moral values.”


“Studying their every thought and action.”


“The personification of trouble.”


“I hate struck-up kids.”


“Glared at her with a look of annoyance.”


“His father proclaimed in this Ten Commandment style.”


“His father might find out what he had been thinking about.”


“They had compromised when she'd agreed to wear to bra.”


“Specific behavioral goal in mind.”


“Profane utterance.”


“MTV hookup.”


“Dramatically sad or angry.”


“MTV is not a good influence.”


“It encourages kids to be rebellious because most of the rock videoes show punk rock or drugs”


“Considering what someone like that Madonna wears,”


“Don't go around telling people, especially people here, that your mother likes such things.”


“There are substantially bad influences polluting you.”


“Listening to his opinions about things and belieivng them,”


“These kids aren't normal! They're worse than nerds.”


“Traitorous betrayal.”


“A war with the oppressors of freedom.”


“Get that machete back in the tool chest.”

The Kronos Condition by Emily Devenport

This is a very weird and utterly incoherent book. Published in 1997 it tells of a cult of superhumans. 3 crazy adults into sex offending and murder and their child prisoners all have telekinetic and telepathic powers which they use to look for Olympus. There is new age babble, death, weirdness, incoherence, creepy weird sex stuff and this was just terrible – not sharp or new.


Best Lines:

“The civilization that didn't know her.”


“People with television sets, computer internets, and a space program.”


~
Scorpianne by Emily Devenport

In the far future Lucy is nearly murdered on the job, she goes on the run and uncovers surgery, immortal rich jerks, evil conspiracies and lots and lots of dodgy sex in this 1994 misfire. There are vid phones and cameras on cables and sex machines and snoop devices and a company called Machine Co. There are force guns, a credit net, credit discs and youth padding. People die in violent circumstances at the hands of a killer, but not much attention is paid to that.


Best Lines:

“The hall was tiled with marble a holdover from the old times when such things were considered fancy.”


“Killing rebels in the Mars revolt.”


“She looked like she had been run over by a lawn mower.”


“No one at my income level anyway.”


“Today's Perverse is tomorrow's New Thing.”
