When I was doing research on films about haunted houses, there were three significant ones. ‘The Legend Of Hell House’ (1973). ‘The Others’ (2001). ‘The Haunting’ (1963).

Hey, youngsters need catering at the movie theaters as well, […]

Nice to see that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is remembering music artist David Bowie … here’s their new trailer with some backing from Ziggy Stardust. There’s also seem to be an unfeasibly large weapon being hauled around by Gamora. The film is due to hit in May 2017. Yippee.
