Warning: Mild Spoilers Below

Nope, written and directed by Jordan Peele and starring Daniel Kaluuya (OJ Haywood), Keke Palmer (Emerald Haywood), and Steven Yeun (Ricky Park) follows a family and small California Ranch community as they experience and attempt to document a series of strange phenomena linked to an extraterrestrial probe that is connected to the sudden death of siblings OJ and Emerald’s father.

This Sci-Fi Horror is the summer blockbuster of the year. It was so exciting to experience this film in IMAX. For fans that believe in the Ancient Alien Astronaut Theory, this is the film we have been waiting years to see. The story was very well written and uniquely presented.  Filled with subject matter that Sci-Fi moviegoers are familiar with, however, the level at which this was brought to life was moving, and eye-catching. Daniel’s character performance showed a humbled strength that transformed and elevated every scene. Keke’s performance created a balance among the onscreen family dynamic and Steven Yeun’s character portrayal (Ricky Park) gave filmgoers the invitation to think and ask deep questions about the character’s traumatic past while connecting the elements of his story with the story of OJ and Emerald. The elements of horror were prevalent in certain parts of the film. There are some scary moments that will make you almost jump out of your seat.

The setting was structured well, and the plot had a special backstory intertwined within that gave fans an acknowledgment of great respect. The film’s visual effects and score were magical. All the components were blended to create a cinematic masterpiece. Nope is a movie that will open the door to a world of possibilities.  It is a great film that will give you the means to live in the moment while escaping into a world where the existence of aliens is no longer a secret conversation, and their presence is no longer part of the dark shadows of conspiracy theories. Nope…

I gave this movie 5 stars! It is worth seeing again..

October is my favorite fall month. It’s a time for cozy blankets, hot cocoa, and watching some of the best horror, that the genre has to offer.
This season the world of television and film has a wonderful array of horror shows and movies due to debut within the next week or so.
The Walking Dead and American Horror Story are two of the most anticipated shows returning to the small screen this year, and the excitement is building as the premiere draws closer. AMC will host a WD marathon,starting from the very moment of the Zombie Apocalypse.
A remake of the 1970’s Carrie starring Julianne Moore is about a socially challenged girl that has telekinetic powers, and tries to cope with being bullied and attempts to fit in a world she doesn’t belong. It expected to hit theaters October 18th, and I believe that it will become an instant modern day classic.
Throughout this month I will feature classic and modern horror reviews on my blog.
I will go into detail and deeply delve into what it means to experience horror in a way that twists the imagination and alters your mind.
Have A Frightening Day

Last night’s episode of the Walking Dead season finale was a total disappointment. Last week’s episode with Merle should have been the finale. I really thought that Rick and the group were going to leave the prison. There is no way that they can rebuild their lives there. The battle with the Governor’s group at the prison was uneventful. I don’t understand why Maggie and Glen were the only one shooting and how no one got killed when the Governor led his people deeper into the prison.
Everyone made a big deal on Twitter when Carl shot the Woodbury boy but I agree with his character. He was doing what he had to do. You can’t trust them and who is to say that he was not going to shoot Carl and Hershal. Carl has had to deal with a lot that children usually don’t have to deal with in these times, so if he goes too soft now he could get killed. I like the point he made to his father when he mentioned Dale.

The whole thing with Milton and Andrea annoyed me. She was so stupid when she stopped trying to free herself to talk to Milton. She knew that the Governor had injured him enough that he was not going to survive. Andrea spent too much time on nonsense.

I was not impressed with the make-up job that was done on Milton. His transformation should have been done in stages and more dramatic.

After the Governor and his gang retreated from the prison he goes mad and shoots his men when one of them speaks up stating that they will not participate in a slaughter. The Governor and his two right hand men walk away.

Rick and his group believe that they have defeated the Governor and they go back to Woodbury to find Andrea. They run into a survivor and she tells them she witnesses the Governor kill in cold blood. Rick,Glen, Michone and Daryl go back and stumbles upon Tyreesse. He learns that the Governor is psycho, and questions the whole situation involving the Governor, which should determine his place in season four. Andrea kills herself because Walker Milton bites her. Rick returns to the prison with the Woodbury survivors. What a big mistake, there are too many weak people that Rick is now responisble for even though he claims that he is not the group’s leader, he is more so now than before. I guess the new people will be the new victims in season four. More people have to die. I thought WD season four finale was going to go out with a bang! ANNOYING ANDREA IS FINALLY DEAD! YAY I hope that the new season will be a promising one. I still can’t get over how bad the episode is.
