Here are my ratings for Supernatural season one, episodes four, five and six.

Episode 4: Phantom Traveler
A former client of Dean’s calls him up when a plane crashes under very mysterious circumstances. After another strange crash occurs, Dean and Sam must board a flight in danger to save the other passengers, even though Dean is terrified of flying.
Rating: 9.5/10. It was a good, and very comical episode!

Episode 5: Bloody Mary
A man dies of an apparent stroke in front of a mirror but Sam and Dean believe something, or someone (Bloody Mary), may be behind his death. Dean tries to help Sam open up about his girlfriend’s death after Sam lets it slip that there’s some information that he hasn’t told Dean about Jessica’s death.
Rating: 10/10. Bloody Mary is dark, creepy, and is one of my favourite episodes from season one!

Episode 6: Skin
Sam’s friend Zach is accused of murder, so Sam offers to help out by checking up on his sister Rebecca, and looking into the case. Rebecca claims that her brother could not have committed the murder because he was with her at the time the murder occurred. Unfortunately, all the physical evidence the police have points to Zach being at the scene of the crime. Sam and Dean have to find out what happened, and wonder could Zach have been at two places at the same time?
Rating: 8.5/10. I like that this episode is fleshy and gross, and has a few particularly funny lines.

Hello Horror Lovers!

Sorry I have disappeared lately, but it was my birthday last week so I have been busy! Anywho, I have been thinking of rating episodes of Supernatural for a while now, so that I can post them for all of you to see and hopefully encourage anyone who isn’t currently watching to watch this awesome show! I have decided that I am going to do this by season, with a few episodes per post, posting my ratings for each episode out of ten, along with a small blurb about the episode. If anyone has any questions about the episode or my rating, just ask!

Season One (2005-2006):

Episode 1: Pilot
Sam is about to graduate from college, and has an interview to potentially join one of the most prestigious law schools in the United States. After a night of celebrating with his girlfriend Jessica, his brother Dean, who he has not seen since leaving for college, shows up in the middle of the night to tell him that their father is missing while on a hunting trip. Sam leaves with Dean to find their father, and wind up in a town named Jericho, where unmarried men have been disappearing without a trace because of a woman in white.
My rating: 9/ 10. It is a very good episode to start off the show!

Episode 2: Wendigo
After seeing Sam’s girlfriend Jessica die, Sam leaves college to continue to search for his father alongside his older brother Dean. Sam and Dean are led to Black Water Ridge on their search for their father, where they end up posing as Park Rangers in order to help a brother and sister find their lost brother. The brothers believe that he was taken by a Wendigo, a creature which was once a man, but was forced to eat human flesh in order to survive, giving him speed, strength and immortality, and is always hungry for more.
My rating: 9.25/ 10. Wendigo is a great episode, probably one of my favourites from season one.

Episode 3: Dead in the Water
While going through the newspaper, Dean comes across a mysterious drowning victim at Lake Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Upon further research Sam and Dean soon discover more people who have drowned in the same lake, but their bodies were never found. When Sam and Dean show up in town they befriend a boy whose father has drowned. They come to believe the lake is haunted by a spirit and must hunt the spirit down before more and more people are killed. This episode stars Amy Acker from Angel.
My rating: 9.5/ 10. I love this episode, and seeing Amy Acker was awesome!

fearFear The Walking Dead premieres tonight at 9pm! I am curious about the show, and what it will contribute to what we know from watching The Walking Dead. The thing is though, with being a huge TWD fan, I am not holding out hope that this new show will be as good, especially since it will be all new characters. Not that I think it will be terrible, but I am cautiously curious about how things will go. What do you all think? Will you be watching tonight?

Hello Horror Lovers,

What did everyone think of The Walking Dead’s season five finale? First off, I was glad that it was 90 minutes rather than 60 minutes with all the commercials we always get. To be honest though, the episode wasn’t what I expected, or all of what I had hoped for. I was happy to see Morgan again and have him finally join Rick at the end of the episode! I was also happy to see that the group was sticking together and none of them died, because I was concerned about somebody important dying! I also enjoyed seeing that Rick finally killed Pete, although it’s unfortunate that Pete had to kill someone before Rick could kill him. I was really hoping for more of a battle though within the walls of Alexandria, because most of the town are complete morons! I thoroughly believe that they need Rick to lead them, keep them all alive and teach them how to actually survive rather than just relying on walls to hide behind. So I have rather mixed feelings on the finale. What did you think?

I went and saw Annabelle a week and a half ago, and I had heard very mixed reviews. It was #2 at the box office, and I had heard it was very good and scary, I had also heard it wasn’t scary at all. Now granted, I can’t judge how a film will be when people say it’s scary, as there are few movies that would actually scare me anymore, but people saying it’s not scary can be a bad sign. Anyway, I went to see Annabelle with my friend Melanie, and I enjoyed it! The film is a prequel to The Conjuring, which was released last year, and is about a couple who begin to experience terrifying supernatural occurrences involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists. The vintage doll is of course Annabelle. They succeeded in making Annabelle rather creepy, and adding lots of suspense. I liked the characters, even though they were not always the brightest at times. I think overall the film is very good, and makes The Conjuring make a bit more sense. If you don’t like dolls, you may get freaked out by this movie, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. 🙂

I’d rate Annabelle with an 8 out of 10. A good movie, so check it out!

I watched a film on Netflix called The Frozen, about a couple who must survive waiting for help to survive after crashing their snowmobile. I had come across the film a few times before, and decided to watch it, but I really should have skipped it. The frozen is a confusing, slow film that really isn’t worth your time. Don’t watch it.

Poltergeist is a classic horror film that was released in 1982. It stars JoBeth Williams, Heather O’Rourke, Craig T. Nelson and Zelda Rubinstein. It is about a family who begins believing their house is haunted when their daughter suddenly disappears into her bedroom closet and can not be found. Here is my review in twenty words or less:

  • Suspenseful
  • Dark
  • Eerie
  • Creepy Kids
  • Ghosts
  • Haunted House
  • Monsters
  • Poltergeist
  • Family saving each other
  • Cute dog
  • Good acting
  • Classic Film

Rating: 8.5/10 (Good film)
