CRY_WOLF's sweet cell phones!

Image
It's no secret that I love the 2005 meta-slasher flick Cry_Wolf.  I also won't deny the fact that I was very envious of the cell phones that the characters in the film had.  They all had some pretty badass Nokias.  In what was essentially the last year or so before smartphones became a thing (pre-iPhone to you youngsters), Nokia had a line of "smart" phones that are still pretty sweet, even by today's standards.

Let's get started...I'll just run through the movie and highlight every Nokia I come across, "smart" or not.


1. Nokia 3510/3510i (the killer's phone)
Very early on in the film, the beginning, actually, we see the killer pull out their phone and call the victim (Becky) in a successful attempt to locate them.  It' very briefly seen, but the killer is using either a 3510 or a 3510i.  From what I can tell, the two phones have practically identical designs.  But I'm sort of leaning towards a 3510 being used in the film (the light …

MM Updates: Riverdale Season 2, 7th Heaven & Xmas

Image
In case anyone's wondering, no, I'm not dead.  This blog sort of is, but I'm not.  But there's no better way to make a "return" to the site than with a new edition of MM Updates, right?

Riverdale's second season!The first season was pretty cool, but this second season...whoa! A serial killer known as The Black Hood is stalking the sinners of Riverdale.And yes, it's awesome (and has many callbacks to the Zodiac and Texarkana moonlight murders).7th HeavenBeen binge-watching the classic series on Amazon Prime and fell in love with it all over again.Laugh all you want, but I love 7H -- would love a revival series (eventually).ChristmasGot through my first real Christmas without my mother.  All is good.  My boys had a good one! So that's about it -- that's what I've been up to.  That, and there are two "top secret" writing projects I'm currently working on.  Writer's block is a bitch, though.
I've been a little quiet on so…

Quick thoughts on SLASHER season two.

Image
The second season of Netflix's Slasher series was released the other day and I managed to catch up with it.

I enjoyed season one for the most part, so I was excited to dig into the second season.  Now, I hadn't seen any trailers or publicity imagery beforehand, so, needless to say, I was a little surprised (or not) to see that this second season had nothing to do with the first.

Moreso than season one, the second season does a lot more cutting back and forth from the present to past events -- each flashback either focusing on the main plot or digging deeper into a character's dark closet -- which I really liked.

The flashbacks mostly deal with what a few camp counselors during the summer of 2012 went through (they all ganged up on a new counselor to play a prank which goes wrong and they end up [intentionally] killing her and hiding her body).  Fast forward to winter 2017 and the group returns to the camp to move the body after they discover that a large construction is s…

HAPPY DEATH DAY is fun, hip & refreshing!

Image
Surely you've heard about the new horror film Happy Death Day by now...it's only slaughtering the box office competition at the moment (looking at you, Blade Runner 2049).

Admittedly, I'm not the eager, trailer-seeking movie nerd that I was back in my teens, so my first exposure to any HDD related came when I saw the trailer play before 2017's It.  I knew right away that HDD was right up my alley.  It came across as Groundhog's Day meets, well, any '90s teen slasher.  I was excited, to say the least.

So fast forward to last Saturday (October 14).  I finally sat down to watch HDD.  And I was pleasantly surprised how seriously it doesn't take itself serious (if that makes sense).  With seemingly all modern horror movies taking a super dark, serious-in-tone route, it was nice seeing a horror movie, a slasher at that, just sit back and fun with its characters and audience.

Now I need to talk about the film's star, Jessica Rothe, for a moment.  Initially, s…
