Jack the Ripper…Solved?

Filexd under: Misc.,News/Articles — Tags: , , , , , , , — jane @

It appears that the identity of Jack the Ripper was has been solved… again. There have been so many movies and books devoted to figuring out the identity. Many have sworn they were right, but it seems that it may have actually been solved this time. Like many other people I have always been fascinated by who it could have been and even when I heard it was solved I still didn’t quite believe it. Obviously there will always be people that insist it’s not, just like there are people that still don’t believe Elvis is dead, but it appears that this time it really is. It seems there is DNA proof now and it’s hard to argue with DNA. After reading everything I could find there could still be some argument against it, but I think that would be from people that don’t want it to be solved because an unsolved mystery is so much more fun than a solved one. Read it here and make up your own mind.

Island of the Dolls

Now I have to go to Mexico. Some of you may already know about this place, but it’s new to me. I generally stay away from Mexico because I do not like hot climates, but now I’m going to have to make the trek. Just south of Mexico City in the canals of Xochimico there is an island that has become known as Isla de las Munecas (Island of the Dolls). This small island is home to hundreds of terrifying dolls. Their severed limbs, decapitated heads, and blank eyes adorn the trees and legend says they are dedicated to the lost soul of a little girl who drowned there. This place is beyond creepy and was never meant to become a tourist attraction. You have to check this out! Read the story here.

Cabin In The Woods

Filexd under: News/Articles,TV/Movies — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

Horror movies are just not that great anymore. This is my opinion, so don’t attack me for it. It seems like every time I go to see a horror movie I feel like I’ve seen it before. Every possible storyline has been done in every possible way. It’s sad because I just love a good horror movie. For some reason they all start out well and then end with a whimper. Last week Scary Hubby and I went to see the much anticipated Cabin in the Woods by Joss Whedon. Being lovers of all things Whedon we were expecting (hoping for) the best. What we got was something completely different. In short, it was amazing! Somehow Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard were able to turn the horror genre upside-down and take it in a direction it has never gone before. He did what many of us horror fans thought impossible and completely reinvented it. One problem though. Cabin in the Woods got the last word in on horror movies. There can be no sequel. He somehow was able to end every single horror movie storyline and leave no room for more. It will have to be a pretty brilliant script to truly revive/recreate this genre after this movie finishes it’s long run. Go see it! You won’t be disappointed.
