Movie Spotlight: Before I Wake

Before I Wake is a 2016 movie starring Kate Bosworth, Thomas Jane, Jacob Tremblay, Annabeth Gish, and Dash Mihok. Jessie (Kate Bosworth) and Mark (Thomas Jane) adopt Cody (Jacob Tremblay), an orphaned 8-year-old boy and soon discover that his dreams actually happen in reality while he sleeps. Sometimes Cody dreams about butterflies or Jessie and Mark's deceased son, but when he has nightmares, a horrifying creature known as the Canker Man terrorizes everyone around him.

I saw the trailer for Before I Wake a few years ago and thought it looked like something I would enjoy, so I was happy to see that Netflix had the movie. Before I Wake has a good story, impressive visual effects, and great performances from everyone (especially Bosworth and Tremblay). The ending was surprising and emotional, and I liked the explanation for why Cody kept dreaming about the Canker Man...and if you make it through that scene without getting a little teary-eyed, you might be dead inside. ; )

My rating: 7.5/10

Costume SuperCenter Blog: Did you Know? Dinosaur Facts Infographic

This isn't paranormal, but I wrote a blog post about dinosaurs for Costume SuperCenter and wanted to share it here. Back in the '80s, I was my elementary school's #1 dinosaur expert, so getting paid to write about dinosaurs is basically my childhood dream job. ; )

Hollyweird Paranormal is back!

I've written about Hollyweird Paranormal, a podcast hosted by Tammie Merheb-Chavez and Brice Mitchell Williams that combines true crime and the paranormal (two of my favorite things), on this blog a few times, and they went on hiatus for a few weeks, but now they're back with a great new episode! I'm so excited my favorite podcast is back, and if you'd like to listen to the new episode, you can check out "The True Crime and Paranormal Aftermath of the Wonderland Murders" here:

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:

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!
