Save Lucifer!

If you read this blog on a regular basis, you probably know that I write plays about the devil, so it should be no surprise that Lucifer is one of my favorite shows. Last week Fox decided to cancel several amazing shows, and unfortunately Lucifer was one of them...but the Lucifans aren't going to let their show go without a fight. Last night's season finale was incredible, and we can't let it end there. If you'd like to help us in this fight, please sign this petition to show your support:

https://www.change.org/p/lucifans-tv-save-lucifer-fox-cancelled-it-lets-get-the-cw-hulu-or-netflix-to-save-it/

Another way to help is to talk about the show on social media, using the hashtags #SaveLucifer and #PickUpLucifer, and tweet @Netflix, @Hulu, and other streaming services or networks to let them know how much people love the show. Also, you can watch Lucifer on Amazon Prime or Hulu to show them how popular the show is and that they would benefit from saving it from cancellation. We're not ready for Lucifer to end, so let's save our show!

New Blog: Cloudy with a Chance of Murder

If you like this blog and you're also interested in true crime, check out my new blog! It's called Cloudy with a Chance of Murder (which I chose because Psych and Castle both used it as an episode title), and I'll be reviewing true crime books, movies, and TV shows as well as writing about cases that interest me. I've been interested in true crime for a long time, so I'm really excited about my new project. : )

Hollyweird Paranormal: Marilyn Monroe

I wrote about Hollyweird Paranormal, a podcast that combines true crime and the paranormal (two of my favorite things) on the blog a few months ago, and since then I've listened to every episode because I love it so much. The latest episode is a two-parter called "Marilyn Monroe: The True Crime and Paranormal Aftermath of Hollywood's Lady of Sorrow," and it's a fascinating listen. I got interested in Marilyn a few years ago when I started watching Smash (which was a great show, and I'm actually listening to the Bombshell soundtrack as I'm writing this), so I read a few books about her and discovered that when it comes to her death, all signs point to murder. I really enjoyed listening to Hollyweird Paranormal's knowledgeable, entertaining hosts Tammie Merheb-Chavez and Brice Mitchell Williams discuss the theories behind Marilyn's probable murder and what she's been up to since her death. If you're interested in Marilyn Monroe or just true crime or the paranormal in general, you should definitely check out the "The True Crime and Paranormal Aftermath of Hollywood's Lady of Sorrow."  : )

Movie Spotlight: Sasq-Watch

Sasq-Watch is a 2017 movie starring Paul Brittain, Adam Herschman, Christine Bentley, Tim Meadows, and Neil Flynn. Brothers Nigel (Paul Brittain) and Oscar (Adam Herschman) are determined to prove that Sasquatch exists and have just gotten funding for an expedition. When their tour guide drops out, they must find help elsewhere in order to find evidence of Bigfoot's existence before their rival (Tim Meadows) and win a $500,000 prize from the Damien Hogel Foundation.

I came across Sasq-Watch at the library a few days ago and decided to check it out because I'm a fan of Tim Meadows and Neil Flynn. I haven't see many Bigfoot movies, but I enjoyed this one, so I'm glad I watched it. The movie was entertaining and made me laugh, and all the performances were great. If you like movies about Bigfoot or mockumentaries, check out Sasq-Watch! : )

My rating: 7.5/10

Movie Spotlight: IT

IT is a 2017 movie starring Bill Skarsgard, Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Nicholas Hamilton. It's based on the 1986 Stephen King novel, which was adapted into a miniseries in 1990 (you can find my review here: Horror Movie Month: Stephen King's It). Derry, Maine, has been haunted for centuries by a supernatural entity known as Pennywise the dancing clown (Bill Skarsgard), and seven kids decide it's up to them to stop IT. This monster can take the form of their worst nightmares, so the members of The Losers Club are in for the fight of their lives.

I usually try to avoid clowns, but I love Stephen King, so I make an exception for his clowns. From the opening scene, in which Pennywise bites off Georgie Denborough's arm (dick move, Pennywise), it's clear that this clown is a force to be reckoned with. I liked the 1990 miniseries, but this version is much creepier and Skarsgard's Pennywise is scary as hell. The performances were incredible, as was everything else about this amazing movie. I had high hopes for this movie, and I wasn't disappointed. I can't wait to see Chapter 2 even though now I hate clowns even more than I did before. ; )
