Trying to do something that nobody else has ever been able to do before should never detour your work. Things might not have been done for a reason, but that was someone else’s decision to step away, giving you the grand opportunity to give it your own shot, your own way. Pushing the limits of not only your team, but yourself is the best way to prove to the world what you are made of and even if you fail, you still gave it your all. There is no shame in coming up short on anything, as long as you can learn from your mistakes, but if you refuse to do that, well, you might find yourself becoming stagnant and you’ll likely lose your drive.
After losing his wife and daughter to The Night Stalker, Henry is in shambles, but it is not enough to keep him from doing his job. Being a ghost hunter is in Henry’s blood and with a little push in the right direction from his team mate Neal, he is ready to get back into it. But this time the ghost hunt is more personal than it has ever been before as Henry has something special up his sleeve that might be a game changer. With the rest of his team in tow, Neal, Jessica, Devon and a reporter, Amy, everyone is ready to see what Henry’s new invention can do and see if he will be able to free his family from the house they died in.
With a new ghost capturing technology being used in the house, Henry is positive that the other great minds on his team have come through. Being able to capture a spirit and turn it into ectoplasm is just the start however since they are also armed with a new computer program designed by Jessica, that can break down just who the ghost actually was in life. Being able to identify a captured ghost is something that nobody has ever been able to do and this will put Henry on the map in the ghost hunting world, along with the scientific fields. But that is not the only thing weighing on his mind this night, as he is more caught up with being able to free the spirits of his wife and daughter who met their untimely demise inside the walls of the house.
Being able to pick up a residual haunt with the machine, the group is ready to take their hunt to the next level and is able to mobilize the ghost catcher to move down from the attic to the lower floors. Being a skeptic, Amy is given the ghost finding glasses and sees her fair share of ghosts being cleaned up, but it comes at a price, since whenever the machine is turned on, she is transported into the house’s past and sees first-hand what happened to the victims. Wanting to be quiet about this, she cannot when she finally sees what the ghosts of the house are trying to show her and when she finds out who the actual Night Stalker killer is, she is faced with a decision to make on who, if anyone she is able to trust in the haunted house that is looking for blood.
Here we have a movie that features a haunted house that has more secrets surrounding it than a normal one, especially when it comes to the group that is investigating it. With his eye on the prize, Henry wants nothing more than to take his research to the next level and will stop at nothing to prove that there really is an afterlife. I really liked how the group worked together and I wish that Amy had come clean earlier when she saw her first ghost to become a believer, but I guess skeptics are always hesitant. I must admit that running the ectoplasm through a computer program to crack the code of life after death was a little bit of a stretch for me, but why not, it gave the movie another spooky element and some screams from beyond. With a serial killer’s house being investigated, a disheveled husband and father, a ghost hunting team on the verge of greatness, some creepy flashbacks and a killer who will stop at nothing, it makes you wonder how far someone will go to prove that they are right, even when the proof is in the pudding…or ectoplasm. Stay Scared.

There is nothing fun about watching a loved one suffer. Wanting to do anything to see them get better, sometimes nothing can be done and you are just forced to sit and wait with them. This is the hardest thing, to feel helpless, to just wait for the inevitable to take place. While nobody wants to be put in this situation, so many times it cannot be avoided. While some people believe that they would be better off not watching, there is plenty of regret that comes with that, the main one is not being able to say goodbye on your own terms. Take it all in with your loved ones while you still can, because a moment lost is one that will be lost forever.
Going into the doctor’s office to hear the news on Valerie’s latest test results, sisters Melissa and Valerie are at a loss. As the cancer has moved through Valerie’s body, there is no form of treatment that can be given that will help her survive. Not wanting to believe this on the drive home, Melissa is naming off things that the two can do, but Valerie is ready to throw in the towel and just let it be. But there is something strange on the road with the sisters on this night as the car dies on the side of the road and they are both shot with a powerful beam of light. Waking up with no idea what happened, Valerie sees that her sister is missing and needs to find out what happened to her only remaining family.
Months have passed and there is still no news on what could have happened to her sister, but Valerie is not willing to give up. But as she continues her search, Valerie does get some incredible news; her cancer has gone into remission. In fact, there is no trace of it in her body any longer, and her body is healing at an exponential rate. Staying focused on the search for her sister by hanging and passing out flyers throughout the city with no avail, Valerie is surprised to see that the officer that is helping her with her case is following her, and acting as though he is her protector. With no new leads on what might have happened, the case is going to be closed and while Valerie is not willing to see that happen, she may have no choice.
Being reminded of what happened months ago and the fact that she woke up twelve hours after the event took place, Valerie changes her search to utilize the internet and finds an author/doctor who deals with missing time. Meeting with Dr. Reed at a book signing, Valerie feels like he might be able to give her some sort of idea what happened to her and her sister. With the promise of answers, Dr. Reed has a compound that he works out of for anyone that wants to join him and since she’s running out of options, Valerie really does not have any other choice. But entering the doors of this place is like entering a maze with no way out and upon meeting the other patients of Dr. Reed, Valerie finds out that she will be in for a life changing event.
An interesting take on alien abductions, with people being made into hosts for something much more than the human race could even imagine. I must admit that I fell for Valerie’s character and the actress that played her in this movie, going from dying to wanting to live life to the fullest, that’s a massive transition that you don’t get in a lot of movies. I am still unsure of the relationship between Valerie and Carter, you see that there is some love and lust between them, but I might have missed what happened in the past. Doctor Reed and his crew were extremely creepy and I would not want to see them in any other way, as it made you uncomfortable to see what they were doing to their patients, and it only gets worse as the story goes on. With a missing person, a pending love story, the need for closure, the search for the truth and a secret that has been hidden from generations here on Earth. The feeling that we are not alone comes full circle in this movie as you get to see what the real reason is behind alien abductions. Stay Scared.

Throughout the holidays, it is always nice to let a little bit of Christmas spirit shine around your neighborhood, whether it be by making your yard look like a lighted monstrosity, or by lending a hand to your neighbors to make sure that they will be ready for the holiday. While I am a firm believer in love thy neighbor, there are some that I cannot stand but they always receive some cookies or a fruit cake from me, just so they know that I care. Keeping your neighbors on your good side is something that more people should try, since you never know when you might need them in the future.
Arriving at her grandmother’s home for Christmas, Rachel Kimmel has become used to the tradition after her mother left her many years ago. With Abby being her only family left, Rachel has many good memories around the house and is willing to help out her former neighbor, Mrs. Garrett, with all of her Christmas decorations. But Abby does not want her granddaughter to have anything to do with the reclusive woman and tries to get Rachel to steer clear. Yet when leaving the house to go meet up with her friends, Rachel sees Mrs. Garrett struggling and decides to lend a quick hand, only to wind up agreeing to help with the entire set up later on in the evening.
Meeting with her friends Gia and Sarah, Rachel is shocked to see that one other face from her past has arrived. Seeing her ex-boyfriend Cody along for the ride is bringing back memories of her mother leaving fifteen years ago and she does not want to re-live those events. Calling it an early night, Rachel is able to convince her friends to come along to Mrs. Garrett’s house to help with the decorating. Arriving at the old woman’s house, Rachel recounts some of the memories of Mrs. Garrett’s daughter, Jamie, who she never personally knew. Finding out a little bit more about the poor girl, Rachel hears that it was Mrs. Garrett’s husband who was responsible for her daughter being taken away, but does not know what to do with that information.
As Mrs. Garrett leaves for the evening, the girls start to work their magic around the house, but get distracted by all of the mannequins that are surrounding them. Not knowing where Mrs. Garrett is when it comes to her mental state, Rachel decides to get some more supplies from the attic and finds an old picture of Mrs. Garrett and her mother. Remembering what the old woman had told her about barely knowing her mother, Rachel can see that she was lying and wants to know why. Trying to get information from Abby about the relationship that the two had, Rachel is shut down, but there are plenty of other clues in the house that might lead to the uncovering of a mystery that is fifteen years old and also what really happened between the Garrett and Kimmel houses. But there is someone roaming around the neighborhood who has another take on the mystery and with their Santa suit and pair of garden shears, they are ready to turn this Christmas into one that nobody will ever forget.
This might have just become one of my favorite Christmas slasher movies of all time, the only way it could have been better is if there were candy canes. From the get go of this movie, you get to see that anyone that is looking to get a little frisky becomes the main target of the killer and you are rewarded with the reason why when you see a bag of joy at the end of the movie. I must admit, I was feeling bad for Mrs. Garrett pretty much throughout the movie, since it appears that she is really off of her rocker when arguing with her mannequins, but then you see the purpose behind it. Rachel and her friends were great, especially when trying to find out what was really going on with the mystery of the missing adults and children. With a pair of garden shears, a scary Santa outfit, frisky folks on Christmas, a bloody bag, some chops, some stabs and plenty of blood, you might find yourself wanting to take a nap rather than getting it on this holiday, because Santa…is always watching you. Stay Scared.

THIS IS THE EMERGENCY SPOILER ALERT SYSTEM...YOU ARE ADVISED TO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK...
You know I have to admit, that the live action version of ‘All Out War’ on The Walking Dead has been nothing short of spectacular. There was a grand opportunity here to romanticize The Alliance’s battle with the Saviors and make Rick and the gang look like perfect heroes. After all, their cause is just, their plight powerful and their stance on why they need to fight is in many ways the age-old notion of ‘Good vs. Evil’ come to life. But the series has refused to make this conflict beautiful or black and white, instead it’s been one brutal affair.
After all, people have died, and died badly in this conflict and we’ve felt the gravity of their loss through and through. We’ve seen some people blur the lines between what’s right and what’s wrong and we’ve had a taste of the bad guys’ perspective and come to understand that they don’t necessarily view themselves as evil in the slightest and last night’s midseason finale of the show, ‘How It’s Gotta Be’, added another new wrinkle into that fold by showing us just how hard the Saviors will fight to further their cause and how far they’re willing to go to ensure that their side lives to see another day.
Granted, I think we all knew that trouble was on the horizon since the Saviors were free from the sea of the dead surrounding the Sanctuary and it didn’t take long for that trouble to find its way to the respective communities of the Alliance, and thankfully, The Kingdom was at least shown some level of mercy by the Saviors, since Gavin gave everyone there the maximum amount of time possible to turn over King Ezekiel without hurting them, only to get his hands on the King when Ezekiel finally found the courage to fight back and distract the Saviors long enough to get his people to safety. If anything, it was a touch refreshing to see a member of the Saviors such as Gavin not open fire in impatient fashion, and try to be reasonable…but that was the last time we would see that kind of mercy in this tale.
For Simon found the Hilltop’s convoy on the road, and used Jerry’s life and the sacrifice of another as bargaining chips to get Maggie and the Hilltop back in line, or rather, seemingly back in line since Maggie clearly has other plans in mind to resist. But despite the fact that this segment of the story was tense and harrowing to say the least, even the Hilltop still fared better than the true focus of Negan’s revenge…Alexandria. Because this once tranquil community faced all of the man’s wrath since Negan was willing to burn the place to the ground to teach everyone there a lesson and it was simply heartbreaking to watch building after building and house after house explode and burn and while these tough and ugly moments would have been enough to carry the entire hour, this episode was filled to the brim with so much more.
Case in point, this midyear finale also served as perhaps the beginning of Eugene’s long road back to redemption. Since the pain he’s carrying in his heart revolving around the fact that he in essence turned Negan loose upon the world once again, motivated him to finally do something good for a change since he took the time to give a guard intestinal distress in order to get Gabriel and the Doctor out of the Sanctuary and back to Hilltop and one has to wonder, that since Dwight’s treachery has now been revealed, if this act from Eugene signifies a changing of the guard, where Eugene will now handle all the sabotage of the Saviors’ plans behind the scenes in order to help the Alliance after they regroup. However, while this little moment was beautiful and uplifting in its own right, and served as a lovely contrast to Negan’s vendetta. It, and everything that came before it, were overshadowed by Carl Grimes’ journey in this episode.
Because the younger Grimes served as quite the hero in this episode. He was the one that organized an escape plan for everyone in Alexandria, and even had the guts to stand at the gates and try to reason with Negan, and hey let’s be honest…it almost seemed as though he reached the man on some wild and fundamental level. But in the end, all of these incredible moments from Carl, were to serve as a last hurrah of sorts, and his fearlessness in this tale, and his bravery all came from a simple mindset in that…Carl had nothing to lose, because Carl Grimes is dying. In the midst of his fight with the walkers when he went to retrieve Siddiq from the madness of the wilderness, Carl was bitten by a walker, and now, he is merely counting down the minutes until he passes into that great beyond and thankfully, it would seem that his death will not be in vain.
I say that, simply due to the fact that Carl has been working toward something more in season eight. He’s been trying desperately to teach his father that there is a grand opportunity sitting in front of Rick Grimes to flat out change the world. Once the fighting is over, once the anger has subsided, Rick and everyone in the Alliance can finally do things right. There can be a day where humanity no longer fights amongst itself, and is no longer motivated by selfish goals, if they only look at the opportunity the species has been afforded and focus on doing good things for one another, then they can accomplish wonders, and while this lesson may not be apparent in the short term, since Rick is clearly going to grieve over the loss of his son…Siddiq’s survival will likely help it sink in. Because in essence, Carl gave his life to save another human being and that kind of sacrifice, will resonate with the people of Alexandria, and Rick for that matter as well…
However, make no mistake about it, this was a devastating episode. Alexandria lies in ruin. The Kingdom is empty and ablaze and the Hilltop is licking its wounds and a father, who has given so much to protect his family…must now watch his son waste away into a monster and this is definitely an episode that gave me great pause when it came to an end. But how Rick responds to his son’s death in the days ahead is what matters most. Because unfortunately, there is still a war to be fought, Negan still wants Rick’s head on a pike and failure means slavery for these fledging communities and all of those matters will no doubt be handled in the back half of season eight. So, in the here and the now, all the fans can do is mourn for Carl Grimes, brace themselves for his death, and wait to see how the Alliance triumphs over The Saviors so that mankind can finally get a well-deserved second chance. Until next time.

I have always been fascinated by volcanos, even as a child. The Ring of Fire has always had a special place in my heart as I have done numerous reports on it, and when a volcano on it starts to erupt, you get to see activity with the other ones. I have also been curious about the curses that are said to be surrounding some of these volcanos, especially Pele’s Curse. While it is not the kind of ancient curse that kicks in if you take volcanic rocks or sand away from the volcanos, it is instead said that you will experience bad luck if you take them off of the island. Even if it is just something to keep tourists from taking the rocks home with them, there might be something to it and I was much too afraid to try it when my adventures took me to Hawaii, so I took a shirt instead.
While noticing activity on Devil’s Peak, Doctor Stevens and his assistant Eve Jones see that the old dormant volcano is getting ready to erupt. Notifying the authorities, they are able to get a warning in place to evacuate the town right up against the mountain and with plenty of time before the eruption, there is little panic. While on his rounds, Sheriff Denton has a special stop that he needs to make and gets to see his old crush Mindy Roberts for a few minutes. Helping her get packed up, he has only one request to make of her at this time and that is to have her talk to her father, Old Ben, who is not willing to pack up and leave his home.
Not talking to her father for over ten years, Mindy is reluctant to make the trip, but her daughter Nicole is willing to do anything to help her grandfather. Getting to the cabin further up the mountain, Nicole is greeted by Ben with open arms, while Mindy is left outside with Nicole’s boyfriend Ryan who is along for the ride. While they all believe that there is still plenty of time to talk things through, the mountain starts to shake and the light smoke coming from Devil’s Peak has turned black, indicating that the eruption timetable is off by over a week. Getting in their car and heading down the mountain should be an easy feat, but there is something evil lying dormant inside the volcano and it is something that not even science can explain.
The spirits of the undead are showered all over the mountain and they are not looking to make friends as Devil’s Peak erupts, they are looking for fresh meat. With the shady history of the mountain dating back to the 1800’s, a group of cannibals were taken by the last eruption and now everyone that was taken in that blast is looking for a warm meal. Working their way through the wooded areas, none of the living have any idea what they are up against as the former residents drool lava onto their unsuspecting victims. Needing to escape the wrath of the mountain, along with saving any of the living along the way, Sheriff Denton has his work cut out for him in getting Mindy and her family to safety and now with the living dead following behind them, the fear of being taken by the volcano has taken a backseat.
Lava filled zombies is all I had to read on the description to know that I wanted to watch this movie. Starting off as a legend that elder Night Wolf is telling teens to give them a little scare about what is hiding inside of the mountain, it becomes real enough to everyone that was involved. I must admit that I liked the family dynamic that was shown between Mindy, her daughter Nicole and Old Ben, even when things did not seem to be on the up and up, they were more than willing to do anything to protect the family. I also enjoyed the feeling of being alone in the situation, because when communications went down around the mountain, the news was not filtered down to the town about what had changed. With plenty of blood, some zombie headshots, lava filled zombies, a way to freeze zombies in place and a family that will do anything to save each other, it is just a fun movie. Even though I would have loved to have seen more lava coming out of the zombies, especially when they were taken down, just getting a burn from one of these undead was enough to get the point across that they were on the mountain to take care of business and business was good. Stay Scared.

It is difficult to move on from any situation when you have a lack of closure. Not being able to air your feelings about it, or say goodbye, or flat out not know what happened has kept many of us awake at night. There are instances where people go missing and you can see it in their family’s eyes that they are dying to know what has happened to their loved one. Keeping faith that their loved ones are okay, even after years have passed, if there is nothing to point the other way, then in their minds their loved one is still out there, somewhere, waiting to be found.
A year has passed since Lisa has last seen her boyfriend and baby’s father, Kurt, and she is still not willing to give up on him. But her life is slowly starting to fall apart as the state is trying to make sure that she is a fit parent to the child. Not wanting to give in to the requests being piled upon her, the social worker finds that Lisa is still following missing persons reports like they are going out of style and takes baby Kim away from Lisa. Upset, Lisa is forced to rely on her brother for support, since he is the only family she has left, that is until a rushed phone call inspires her to find something new.
A year into retirement, former sheriff Jim is still on the case. Taking case files about missing people from his adjoining town, Jim is trying to find the connection and one has come into his sight, the lack of radio and cell signals in the area where the folks have gone missing. Passing this information on to Lisa and Karl, Jim is shocked to hear that there was more information on the cases that he was never aware of. Finding a memory card from the adventure that Kurt and his friends took into the mountains, Jim has new locations to check out and is chomping at the bit to help Lisa find a little bit of closure over what happened.
With his theories not sitting well with Karl, Jim tries to make sure that being supportive of his sister is the only thing that matters, because if she does not get closure from somewhere, she may be driven to leave her daughter without any parents. Karl comes onboard for one day and the group heads up into the mountains to investigate a spot where Kurt’s group stopped, but things start to get interesting when they stop by a house where the group laid up and find that it is no longer in existence. Needing more information on what is happening to them, Jim returns home to see that it has been ransacked by someone looking for the information that he is hiding. But that only confirms that they are getting closer to the truth, the truth that nobody wants them to find.
Talk about a story that is really focusing on what the government does not want you to know, with conspiracy theories about why the missing people were never investigated, to an alien abduction where even the survivors have no chance of making it out alive, the story really sticks with you after you watch it, and while I really wanted to know what happened to get Lisa in trouble and need to have a social worker checking up on her, the overall movie did not suffer by not answering those questions. Wanting nothing more than to find out the truth of what happened to her boyfriend Kurt, Lisa finally gets to put what she knows from his found footage to work while she travels to the mountains to see things through her own eyes. With a friendly camping trip gone wrong, two obsessed people looking for the truth, a black car following them every step of the way, a cover-up of massive proportions and not knowing who you can trust, this is a fun movie that integrates found footage with a fresh story very cleanly. It does make you wonder what we are not being told when it comes to strange invaders and such, but you might want to ask yourself this first, do you really want to know the truth? Stay Scared.

After being convinced that there’s only one way to get her father back into the No-End House, Margot agrees to take the venture once again. With Seth promising that a good life can be made inside of the house, Margot has no idea what she will be giving up. Being able to control the memories that she feeds to her father has become the norm, but Margot is slowly starting to lose herself in the mix. While taking a walk around the neighborhood with Seth, the two see that the house has landed once again and more visitors are about to enter to meet their fate.
Waiting a year to find the No-End House again, Jules sees that it has appeared in France. Making her trek with everything that she needs to defeat it and get her best friend back, she spots a familiar face waiting outside. Seth is more than happy to bring Jules back in and gives her a new warning, that her memory seeker is hungry and will most likely kill her when she touches it again. Telling her former traveler her real plan of taking Margot out of the house, Seth is against the action and makes sure that Jules will never make it to his happy home. Waking up to see her memory eater ready to feed again, Jules is forced to put an end to that story, but sees that it is only leading to the beginning of another.
Now knowing the true power of the house, Margot wants to keep people free of the torments it brings, but Seth is not willing to let it die. Talking with Mr. Sleator about his what his daughter is suggesting, the shadow of a father knows that his time is drawing near as well and agrees with the idea. Being on his own in this fight, Seth sees that he might need to take action on his own, but has little idea what he will be up against when Jules is able to fight off her biggest fear. Trying to keep a close eye on his current love, Seth sees that things in the No-End House may be coming to a close for his relationship.
Making her way to Margot’s house, Jules sees her best friend and is ready to take her back home. Not remembering anything of the outside world, Margot believes that she is fine within the house, but has no idea what will happen to her when all of her memories are gone. Taking Margot on a walk to see Seth’s family that the house created for him and being surrounded by his stable of other loves, Margot sees that the hollowed-out girls are nothing more than decoration. Not wanting to lose herself completely as well, the choice will have to be made of escaping the house, but at what price.
While I was not blown away by the ending by any means, it was a good ending to the story. But I still have many questions about how memories are made inside and outside of the house to keep it alive. That being said, this story was not as visually frightening as Candle Cove was, but it was still pretty good overall. I liked that you get to see how the house works from both sides and if you know how to keep it working for you, you can make a life for yourself. I also enjoyed learning about how to defeat the house and the memory seekers that will stop at nothing to feed and the power they can possess over a person. So, it looks like there will be another season of Channel Zero coming out next year and I am excited to see what it brings. With Creepypasta being intriguing for everyone, I hope that Butcher’s Block is able to blow everyone away. Stay Scared.

It is fun to think about what you would do if the zombie apocalypse was really coming. While I am starting to think that it never will, I still have to get my plan together of where I will go and how I will be able to survive. While I would rather be on my own during the event, just because I would hate to see my friends being eaten if there is nothing I can do to help them, if I did have to be in a group, maybe it would be good to have a couple wrestlers be a part of it. I mean what could go wrong if there were a couple massive humans to help fight off the undead?
Seeing his soon to be ex-girlfriend making out with his opponent for the night, ‘The Franchise’ Shane Douglas has a little something up his sleeve for their match. As Shane and Battling Billy are going at it, the ref sees that things are getting a little too real. Seeing Shane lining up Billy for a pile driver, he has no idea the intent was to hurt anyone. But seeing that Battling Billy is not moving on the mat as the count of three is made, everyone in attendance has just witnessed a death in the ring that will not be allowed to go unpunished.
Billy’s brother Angus has something planned to get even with his new nemesis and will need the help of the dark spirits to grant him the power to create something worse than death for Shane Douglas. Being able to create his very own zombie out of a stranger, Angus takes his new power and starts to build his army that will eat Shane, limb from limb. Being able to come to a deal with the owner of the business, Shane and several of his wrestling counterparts will battle it out at Angus’ show, but have no idea that a new undead army will be awaiting them.
Meeting up at the bus with all of his coworkers, Roddy Piper is really the only one that seems to like Shane and the new publicist takes note. Sarah is looking to take the brand to the next level, and not willing to pull any punches when it comes to the obvious, or when she is in trouble. Roddy on the other hand is looking for someone that he can snuggle with and Sarah has definitely caught his eye.
Entering an abandoned prison, the group of wrestlers are able to get ready for their upcoming matches, but Angus is ready to unleash hell upon them. Allowing his zombie hordes into the ring, it is obvious that survival comes easier to some of the crew than others. Needing to find a way past the undead that are looking to feast on them, Roddy and Sarah take control of one group, while Shane’s followers find out what kind of champ he really is. Not being afraid to let his friends die to save his own skin, Shane decides to leak the news that he went out to kill Billy to get the affections of Taya back. Knowing know that it is Shane’s fault that they are being hunted by a madman in control of a horde of zombies, the true art of team work is called into action, but will it be enough to keep everyone safe from the undead as they are vastly outnumbered.
A story of friendship, betrayal with a touch of love and a ton of zombie kills, not much more can be said. I did not go into this movie expecting a story of any kind, I mean come on, it is titled Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies, but it did surprise me by giving me a decent little storyline that made me cheer when Shane was forced to stand up for his sins. Roddy Piper really stole the show and with so many wrestlers who come and go, he will always be one of my favorites. With wrestlers, zombies, wrestlers, more zombies, more zombies and wrestler zombies and plenty of zombie kills, it is just a fun movie if you let it carry you away. I was very impressed that it managed to keep my attention all the way through, mainly because I wanted to find out what wrestling moves would work out best if I was ever faced with this situation. Stay Scared.

Getting back to the real world, Jules is starting to see that the damage the No-End House has caused may not be reversible. Seeing blank faces when she thinks about her family, she will probably never be the same again. Margot is in the same boat and after talking to her mother when she has gone missing for three days, she cannot place a face with the voice. But they are free of the house’s clutches, or so they think since someone from the other side has made his way into the real world as well.
Walking down the street and seeing some of his daughter’s memories, Mr. Sleator needs to feed and soon. Stopping by a house and seeing two little girls playing outside, he is trying to find the right place to feed, but when the girls’ father comes out, he is forced to head back to his former home. Sneaking into the backyard, Mr. Sleator has a plan of attack when it comes to his daughter and causing a brief distraction to get Jules out of the way, he is able to take the memory of a pet from Margot and starts eating in peace, but little does he know that he is not the only one who has made it out of the house.
After a long conversation, Margot and Jules clear up their fight in the No-End House and while they may have been on the outs for a little bit, they will be friends forever. While Margot takes a nap on the couch, Jules notices that the front door is open and gets stopped by Seth who knows that Mr. Sleator has made his way to the real world. Stopping the formerly dead father from feeding, the group comes to a consensus that they need to get him back in the house. With no way of getting him to head that way of his own free will, Margot pulls out her old man’s pills and decides that poisoning him is the way to go.
Freeing the dead man from the basement to have a talk, Seth moderates the conversation between father and daughter. With new knowledge, Margot feels bad about putting him back underground, but it must be done this way since she will not enter the house again. As the allergy pills put Mr. Sleator down, Seth and Margot need to find a way to dispose of the body. Dragging the lifeless Mr. Sleator out of the house, Margot is surprised to see her mother has come to visit. Snapping back to life and searching for his daughter, Mr. Sleator makes short work of the others in the house, since only his daughter is able to feed him. Close to getting what he wants, Seth jumps into action and stops the transaction once again, but it may be too little too late.
Seeing her friend on the ground about to be killed by her father, Margot is forced to make a decision that may change her life forever. Agreeing to go back into the house with her father and Seth, Margot leads the charge back to the No-End House and there is no way to stop her. While Jules stepped away from the house to try and get some memories back while the others killed Mr. Sleator, she comes back to find Mrs. Sleator working with the police to try and find her now missing daughter. Knowing that she cannot be part of the investigation, Jules makes her way back down the street, but when arriving at the location of the creepy magic house, it is no longer there for her.
Okay, they really messed up the story here and I am a little upset that they have spread this season out to be six episodes, when it would have been fine with the people exiting the house. My problem comes midway through the episode when Margot has no recollection of a pet that her father is eating in trade, but has no problem remembering her mother who he ate days ago in the No-End House. This does not pair up at all, but the memories might be getting partially eaten, but this is still a huge issue for people paying attention. The fierceness that is coming from Mr. Sleator is just nuts and I am surprised that he could have been locked away for any amount of time in the basement without breaking out. I was kind of hoping that Seth was gone, but now he will be the focus of the remaining episode to make things work. This will be an interesting ending coming up and while I have my doubts that my mind will be blown, I will still watch it, because the rest of the storyline is kind of intriguing. Stay Scared.

It is hard to know what the future holds and while some people pay a fortune to know what it could be, the rest of us wait to see it come to life before our very eyes. As things have changed from the time when I was a child, I never would have expected to see things like this happening in my life time. Living through a depression is something that even scholars did not expect for this generation, but guess what, we did. But this changed many things in our world, not all for the better as some people decided to take different paths than what they expected and it turned out to be something great for them, but not for the rest of us.
Having a good time with her little sister, Sam is waiting for her mother to make it home for the night when a strange knocking comes from the front door. Not knowing who the woman is outside asking for help, Sam tries to keep her out, but when she sees a man sitting in the kitchen, she knows that she and her sister are in trouble. Trying to find a place to hide in the hopes that the couple will leave, Sam has no way of battling the couple. Getting caught and knocked out, Sam can only expect the worst for herself and her sister, but nothing can prepare her for what the night has in store for them.
Waking up in the trunk of a car, Sam is able to free her hands and uses a tire iron to try and leave a path for someone to find her. Hearing the scraping, the couple pulls over only to have the young girl find a way past them into the woods. Running for her life, Sam is followed by the woman who seems to have something very sinister in mind. Hitting the woman in the head repeatedly with the tire iron, Sam is slashed in the side with a knife and while she does not know the extent of her injury, she knows that she cannot continue to run. Looking for help, Sam follows a road that leads her to a farm house and tries to call for help from there, but before she is able to get the call off, she sees her abductors pulling up in their car.
Needing to hide, Sam is able to find a closet to hold up in until they leave again. Sitting and waiting, she sees that her cut is getting much worse and decides to stitch it up the best that she can, but that is when she finds out that this is not a random occurrence, as there are bags from other young girls littered all around her. Watching as the killer couple seems to be enjoying their evening with their friend, Sam is shocked to watch as the man flat out kills his best friend. Knowing now that there is little chance for escape while these two are around, Sam is forced to watch as her little sister meets her fate at the man’s hands, but there is something about to be unleashed on the killer couple that even Sam did not expect to see.
A killer couple that lives in a haunted house, well, that pretty much sums it up in a nutshell. But it took something special for the haunting to come to life and another death inside the walls seemed to bring it out beautifully. I did not know that there could be so much fear involved around being locked in a closet despite being safe from the wrath of the couple, but I will admit that this movie played it just right and I would choose not to be locked in anywhere if my life depended on it. I liked how the ‘just watching’ aspect became a fear that none of us would want to experience in our lifetimes as the killer couple was something else and even had their perfect ways of disposing of bodies, very gruesome. With a kidnapping gone wrong, a smart teenager looking for help, a haunted house, a chainsaw, watching the death of a loved one and a demon hell bent on justice, this is really a movie that you might want to watch with the lights on, because when the lights go off in the house and the blood starts to flow, there is no turning back. Stay Scared.
