I am a lover of horror movies. Especially creepy ones that deal with spirits, folklore, or urban legends. So when I found out that they are making a movie of La Llorona to be released a few days before my birthday in April, I was over the moon. You can check out the trailer here.
Since my blog post last month about the three most common questions my facebook messenger and email have blown up with questions and comments about talking to spirits and using an Ouija board. I decided to address some of the questions, comments, and concerns that were shared with me.
If you watch any kind of paranormal movie or if you tell someone that you are dealing with a spirit, the first thing people do is grab a crucifix and start slinging holy water around. This rarely solves the issue. Growing up in the bible belt allowed me to witness this often and If anything I have noticed that it causes the spirit to get upset. There area few reasons why they get upset and "act out" more aggressively after that happens. Growing up in the bible belt allowed me to witness this often and pushed me to figure out why these methods don't work.
Being overseas, I don't usually hear about movies until after they have been out for a while in theaters but one movie I have been hearing a lot about lately is 12 Strong.
Long before I met Jeremy and while I still lived in Chapel Hill, I was apart of a really cool group. It was a horror movie meet up group. We would get together often to watch scary movies and go to horror movie festivals. The founder of the group is my friend Melly. Before I planned my trip back to North Carolina, Melly said that she wanted me to come to the horror group and spend the day with me. I was excited to see her and the group again.
I love Charleston. The history, the people, and the food are fascinating to me. My mother and I enjoyed exploring Charleston during our girls' getaway. Charleston offers so much to anyone who visits. There are many museums and historic homes to tour for history buffs. There are a variety of bars and clubs for those needing the nightlife scene. There are also a variety of tours including history, ghost, and movie history tours. I have been on a few of the ghost tours over the years. They are all really great and interesting. You can visit Charleston multiple times and have a different style trip each time. But the thing that never changes is how nice people are. It isn't unusual for random people to talk to you or invite you to join them at their table for dinner or drinks. It is the easiest town to make friends.
It is the night before Typhoon/ Tropical Storm Malakas blows in and I have made a grave mistake. I didn't ration the show I was binge watching while Jeremy was gone and now I have run out of things to watch. I had picked Sex And The City to binge watch. I figured it had enough seasons to keep me going the whole time. It would have been if I didn't have it playing constantly in the background while I was doing things like school work or blogging or editing photos.
