Ganja & Hess

Wikipedia describes this as ‘an experimental horror film’ which is an understatement if you ask me. We took an extra day to publish our findings on this week’s choice because of other weekend commitments, but I’m quite glad I had the extra time to process it. It’s something of an enigma and I found myself…

Running out of steam

I’ve fallen behind on Blogtober but I’m not going to beat myself up about it, nor bust a tit to write five posts in one day in an attempt to pretend that I haven’t dropped the ball. It is what it is and if I’ve learnt nothing else during the last seven months, I’ve learnt…

Too late to apologise

One of things that drives me nuts about myself is the amount I apologise. For taking up people’s time, for asking questions when I don’t understand something. When I take up too much space, particularly in smaller spaces, like intimate restaurants where the tables and chairs are pushed close together. I carry shame with me…

Ghost stories

Do you ever think about the ghost stories and local folklore you used to hear about as a kid? I grew up in a tiny seaside town, one that Spike Milligan referred to as an overground cemetery. It’s true the average age of resident is around 70 (not fact but go with it) so it’s…

Tales from the Hood 2

I might be wrong here but I don’t think we’ve done an anthology before. But even as I type that sentence, I doubt myself. Perhaps my definitely more with it Blog partner can cast light on that? If I am right, then this is the first and it’s surprising. There are some corkers in the…

Catch and release

I’m conscious of doing too many film posts on here as I know my mum doesn’t read them. Not that this blog is for any one person but getting the balance right is something I’m working on. Blogging every day this month has been challenging in this ever-changing time period and I’ve been very up…

Scare Me

A mini-review for you if you will, of a really quite wonderful little indie horror flick, which has just appeared on Shudder. I’m into it – even though I accidentally didn’t stay for the mid-credit scene which actually ties up the film, and was left confused. I’ve fixed that now but don’t be like me.…

Five creepy longform stories

This is a very lazy thing to do but today I thought I’d share a handful of unsettling longform stories I’ve recently been reading, rather than write anything myself. Longform articles are one of my favourite things to seek out on the internet – and often lead to me falling down the rabbit hole for…

You and Me

Much like I refer to people I follow on Twitter as my good friends, I feel a connection to this author based on my friendship with her brother-in-law. I guess what this means is that her first two novels have felt extra special to me, much like my friend Daisy’s have. It’s so cool to…
