Birthday and whatnot…..

It’s been a quiet week because it’s been my birthday as well as reflexology week. I’m studying at level 5 reflexology so it means I spend a full weekend in Lincoln every month (about an hour drive from where I live). This month was a practical exam but I passed so all is right with the world, not to say I have a mountain of work to get through to catch up. My tutor bought me a lovely gift just because of the mental health battles I’ve been going through ❤

My birthday was lovely and quiet. I received lots of lovely horror based and unicorn based presents. I did want to see the new Halloween for my birthday but typically the showings had finished the day of my birthday. My sister bought me Circus of Horror tickets, which I am very much looking forward too. My husband bought me a MeanGirls/Hocus Pocus crossover T.Shirt. We went for a delicious afternoon tea and the boy cooked steak for us for supper. I even received a dragon cake!

My Fright Crate turned up in time for my birthday (the October crate). If you’ve ever had Loot Crate you’ll know it can be hit and miss with what you get. This crate was a hit all round. I got a Trick R Treat Sam T.Shirt….I love it! I got an Evil Dead Ash figurine, love it!!!! A Nightbreed graphic novel!

We’ve finished the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and thoroughly enjoyed it. Michelle Gomez is amazing as always. I love Richard Coyle and Miranda Otto. It was just dark enough to cast the saccharine old Sabrina away.

We also finished The Purge series. I enjoyed the first Purge movie but not so much the sequels/prequels. The series was something we watched when nothing else was on. I enjoyed it but I didn’t love it. You’re always going to have unlikable characters in such a series. But there’s just so many of them! I suppose it’s about morals and how easy it is to be corrupted when the choice is there, consequence free. I think the problem is with the original Purge movie there was a genuine claustrophobia that made you fear the for the characters and feel yourself in their position. I suppose a few episodes from the edge there was a twist I didn’t see coming and I thought that was pretty good but it lost it’s edge very quickly.

I’m currently reading The Sorrows by Jonathan Janz, struggling with this one but I’ll review it once I get to the end.

About thewytchinghourblog

I'm a horror loving librarian with the need to share reviews of everything horror, gore and spooky related. I'm an avid reader of books, mainly horror, definitely supernatural. I'm a pagan and like to define myself as an eclectic witch. Halloween/Samhain is my favourite time of year from everything pumpkin spiced, the scent of decay and the veil between worlds thinning. So, here we are to share all things blood splattered, things that go bump in the night and crawl out of the darkness.

    I love Evil Dead and the fuuny series not sure if I watched it all though. I stopped watching Sabrina for a bit. I like it but the old ideas for black magic, devils and ok voodoo dolls!! Do your research. It puts me off. I like it though and will continue it. You got a picture of Nightbreed by Clive Barker there. I love the film and need the novel
