Sorority row movie review


I am not even joking you. This is SUCH a great movie. I just went to see it with cousins about a week ago and damn. I was shocked. It will for sure send a thrill down your spine with the way it goes.

It is NOT a movie you would want to watch with children. I will warn you that much. For example, I wrote about Drag me to Hell and honestly, it was not that bad. Like you could watch it with children. This movie has more guts and war in it. That is why I suggest that perhaps if you are having an adult party to watch it.

Anyways, I am sure you all are sick and tired of my writing. How about this time with a trailer?

A movie I recommend-Drag me to Hell!

I went to see this movie about a month ago. I enjoyed the good thrill. It wasnt as gory or bloody as I thought.

The storyline was excellent. I enjoyed it. It kept my interest. Had a mix of Witchcraft and suspense. The main character becomes cursed after denying an elderly lady extra time to pay off her bill.

Zach from has a lot to say. He rates it an A.

From the first trailer showcasing Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell, it was clear that Raimi was taking a break from the multi-billion dollar web-slinging franchise and heading back into the horror genre to give audiences a little reminder of where his true roots lie. And Drag Me To Hell was appreciated by audiences everywhere this summer as a masterful presentation of what American horror can be. The relatively simple story of a bank teller who unintentionally gets on the bad side of a vengeful gypsy woman and finds herself haunted by a devilish lamia, Drag Me To Hell has comedic timing, spine-tingling moments and gross-out effects galore, but as the icing on the cake, Raimi was able to rope in his Spider-Man 3 composer, Christopher Young.

Now one of the most recognized composers in Hollywood, in the 1980s Young started out scoring horror films, including The Dorm That Dripped Blood, A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2, and two Hellraiser movies. As virtually everyone knows, Sam Raimi started his career in a similar fashion, with such cult classics as The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II. Since the ’80s though, both Raimi and Young have expanded their repertoire, with Raimi heading into drama with A Simple Plan and For Love of the Game, and more auspiciously to the Spider-Man series while Young has scored films across the board, from drama (The Shipping News) to comedy (Bandits) to action (Swordfish) . For both of these prolific creators, Drag Me To Hell comes at a perfect time and with the perfect horror-laden themes to make use of their strongest skills.

“For somebody who is perpetually fascinated by the unusual in film, there has been nothing more rewarding than to get the chance to score a Sam Raimi movie,” Young says in the liner notes. And from the work Young does on the score, it’s pretty clear why: Raimi has created a movie so wild and, to use Young’s own word, “insane” that the composer has all the room in the world to expand his score and make it as powerful and memorable as he wants. From the opening notes of the very first track (the title theme “Drag Me To Hell”) it’s abundantly clear that Young is having fun here. With a powerfully full orchestra and stirring violin solos peppered throughout, Young continuously ups the ante (even adding his own screaming vocals to the action-packed “Loose Teeth”). This is a horror score for the record books and one that even non-musical audience members have walked out of theatres talking about.

In 14 songs and just under an hour of music, Christopher Young’s soundtrack takes you through the course of Sam Raimi’s over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek horror romp, and reminds listeners why he’s stayed in the business for so long. For those that enjoy a good thrill while listening to music, Drag Me To Hell is an unbeatable work of composition. Just don’t listen to it too many times lest the sounds attract a horde of lamias.

Where else do I go to look for Halloween costumes?!

I know some of you may be running around thinking "Oh my GOD!" Where the HECK do I go now? Stores are so expensive and unaffordable. My child has been wanting to be Snow White for a while now.

Have no fear. As well as Annies costumes, we also have the solution with eBay-the online marketplace. Everyone who goes there leaves with what they went for. There is lots of competition which means LOW PRICES. (I like the sound of that!)

Come on in! Check them out!

Halloween PERSONALIZED Present ideas

Running out of ideas for Halloween?

Yes, it can be pretty hectic I assume. Even I am thinking about many ideas on what to do for Halloween. One idea I came up with is personalized Halloween Presents. You know how on Christmas, children smile wide when they see the presents for them under the tree?

Why not do the same here with Halloween? Of course, there will not be a tree to put the gifts under. Why not be creative and perhaps get several brooms with spider webs on the top and put tiny gifts and candy on the bottom.

You can find cute (and affordable) Halloween presents from here. I love it so much and I ordered several things from them for the last three years. It really helped put the smiles on everyones faces!

Take a look!

Party ideas for Halloween

You might be someone who is throwing a party or someone who is going to one. Either way, you are looking forward to a night full of excitement regardless of if you are a guest or if you are host.

So what are some good ideas?

You know how you can get when you see a party invitation. Picture getting something like this:

You know it gets you all excited for a party. This is a perfect example of fun and simple. The best thing is that many of these invitations work with


# Halloween Hits (Rhino Records)-Like the children version of Halloween songs.

# The Nightmare Before Christmas-no comment needed. Everyone likes this!

# Just spooky sounds of shrieking or bats.

# Very Scary Music: The Halloween theme!


Pumpkin carving is an art. No doubt about it. You can hold contests and give a little prize for the one that is voted the best. Or if you don't want to make a mess, you can paint the pumpkins instead of carving them. It works either which way!


For example, you might tell your party that someone was not able to make it. Instead, have them show up in a black cape and spook everyone.

In the mood for a good horror spooky movie?

I know I am. There are so many choices but which movie do you pick? They have bloody gory movies like "Saw" that you can watch with your friends or movies like "Friday the 13th".

Personally, I pick "Halloween 2" to be the scariest that I have seen.

On Amazon's website, a reviewer says that "This movie is one of the best sequels released..It starts with a clip of how the 1st one ended and brings you right into the continuation of the's just as suspenseful as the first with the same feel and cinematography. The 1st and 2nd films are great to watch back to back...a TRUE sequel...check it out!"

I suggest picking this movie up if you are seriously in the mood for buying a good scary movie!

New addition-Peppy Wear.

As some of you may have noticed, I put a banner on the side. It is for more costumes and excellent women's clothing.

As trends change every year, it becomes fun to try to catch up and see what you can get from it. Sometimes a certain cartoon or design may be the IN thing at times.

I invite you to take a look at Peppy Wear. They have a great selection of clothes for everything. We all have different tastes and they can offer the solution to your Halloween problems!

Have a great one!

The origins of Halloween

Spooky ghosts and goblins are the least to worry about at this time.

What is Halloween about? The costumes and such? The trick or treating? It goes beyond that.

Truth is that this used to be a Pagan Holiday dedicated to the God and Goddess or Paganism. They were believed to restarted another cycle of life.

Witches and Warlocks would dress up and attempt to please their ancestors and please the spirits that may roam around there. Little children were given presents (present day candy) to please them. Now, we give out candy and maybe other goodies.

It is always a past time. I can recall all the times I have been trick or treating. It has been amazing. There are some who oppose this tradition completely. Some people believe that Halloween and trick or treating is a tradition from Satan and is Hellish. Some do not care.

What can my child be for Halloween?

The possibilities are endless! It is even better when you are a child! They can be so much for Halloween that it is hard to even start! Since costumes and children go so well together, many costumes are designed with your child in mind.

For example, take this Mickey Mouse costume.
This child dressed up as Mickey Mouse is too adorable! Good news is that it is available from Annies Halloween Costumes. You do not have too worry about your child not sticking out.

This Baby Pea costume is available for infants. This is from Annies Halloween Costumes as well. Now, you can even take your little bundle of love and joy around with you. Why should they be left out? It is very warm and cuddly to ensure your little one stays warm.

This girl is dressed up as Hannah Montana. Which girl is not crazy over Hannah Montana? All of them are.
It comes complete with a gold jacket, gold top, black leggings and silver glitter belt to make the whole Hannah Montana experience realistic. Maybe your daughter can live the double life of the star of the show!

Here is another example of what your child can do. There is also a male version of this costume. This is from the the movie "Incredibles!" This makes for a very memorable Halloween costume.

What is Halloween?

"Halloween (also spelled Hallowe'en) is a holiday celebrated on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saint's Day. It is largely a secular celebration, but some Christians and pagans have expressed strong feelings about its religious overtones.The day is often associated with the colors orange and black, and is strongly associated with symbols such as the jack-o-lantern. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing customers, ghost tours, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o'-lanterns, pranking people, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies."

That is just a brief description of what Halloween is like. There are so many colors, costumes, excitement, creativity, happy children and most of all-CANDY!

It is such an exciting time! You can only dress up and be what you want once a year and that is on October 31st. Halloween!

Regardless of if you are a parent or a child, it can be exciting for the whole family!
