When two worlds collide: A hold put on horror flick DEEP WATER after Flight 370 mystery

Just imagine this story: A plane traveling from Beijing to Sydney goes down in the Indian Ocean and people who survive the crash have to then survive tiger shark attacks.

That was actually the subject of DEEP WATER, a horror film being made by Arclight Films.

Due to the disaster of the Malaysian airlines flight 370, the project is (probably rightfully) on hold.. 

DEEP WATER was originally called BAIT 2 3D--obviously a sequel of "BAIT" .. the original BAIT 3D was released in 2012 and featured a tsunami throwing sharks at people.  It earned little money in Australia and got even more lackluster reviews that campy SYFY movies.

It's not the first time movies had to be changed to due reality.. in 2002 SONY had to change SPIDER-MAN due to some scenes featuring the World Trade Center towers..

Often reality follows fiction, though. In 2001, the LONE GUNMEN spinoff episode of the X-FILES pilot episode from March 2001 featured commercial airliner jets being flown into the World Trade Center towers.. 



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
