End of September 2021 Update

Hi everyone,

I would like to start with a massive thank you to everyone who recommended me horror films when I put a post up earlier in the month for suggestions. Through comments, emails and Facebook messages I received over 80 recommendations. Which is beyond my wildest dreams. I’ve written the entire list up in a word document and I’m currently looking through them to choose 31 to watch and review throughout October. If you have any last minute picks, let me know in the comments. A big thank you to everyone who’s suggested anything, it’s all welcome and I’m sure I’m going to find some new favourites. The ones that I don’t get round to in October will be watched eventually as well, so no suggestion will be wasted.

My internet is still down, which is frustrating. I’m still working out of my mum’s house and when I’m at home using phone data to upload posts. They need to go digging in the street as something has snapped, but they need permission to do so and it’s taking a while to get that. It’s frustrating because it means getting up a lot earlier each day to commute and going to bed earlier. I’ve gotten used to working from home and having more free time.

The cinema this week has been a Godsend. The re-releases of The Lord of the Rings trilogy in IMAX have been playing nightly at the local cinema, and it feels almost like a holiday to be completely absorbed into the film for 3 hours. I haven’t seen The Lord of the Rings in such a long time, and have been loving watching them again. Monday was Fellowship, yesterday was Two Towers and tonight is Return of the King. I’m going to be a little sad once it’s over because I’ve enjoyed them so much. Thursday is No Time To Die, so at least there’s that.

Today I’m going to be finishing up The Hunger Games film series, watch the first film for my horror marathon and try to read as much as possible.

Thanks for reading and until next time,
