THE WEEK OF THE WITCH

Expect the unexpected all week.. (Really all year) .. but during the Halloween mean season, all things are possible. Anything can happen. Be on the look out for spirits of the netherworld, Slendermen, witches, vampires, ghosts or goblins. Also in the mix: Real people doing really horrible things around the planet earth. If we can actually travel into space, we'd pervert that as well.

The final week of October. Halloween falls on a Friday this year. But not a Friday the 13th as that moronic online MEME has convinced some people of..Here is a snapshot of the things happening this Monday...as the week of the witch begins.

When Popes aren't busy eating the hearts of innocent children, here's some other things on the menu.. Now you know.

Canadian Parliament gunman recorded video message before attack that reveals it WAS a meticulously planned act of terror

I have seen warnings for years that the GULF STREAM was stopping. Now more warnings such as those old ones are back: But there's some startling evidence that could suggest it is finally occurring. The colder than average area is the Northern Hemisphere has grown by 300% in two weeks. Then again.. it's autumn. So ...causation ...correlation.. ? Be the judge yourself.  Don't just take every conspiracy theory as fact. Nature has a way of doing what it wants, when it wants. Even if Chemtrails try to stop that..

EX-CBS reporter Sharyl Attkinson is saying something we all should listen to: The government hacked her life..

New Jersey releases a nurse who was forcibly quarantined over Ebola fears.. She also sparked a nationwide debate now as to how to handle people, in a American way, people who are coming back from Ebola infected areas of Africa. What rights do they have? What civil liberties should we maintain? These are big questions.. and important ones, as well.  But missing from the mix: The Executive Order signed by President Obama just this year that allows the government to take people who are suffering from respiratory or other disorders to prevent a nationwide infection. This is clearly a debate worth having.. but if something big and bad does break out, people will stop debating and expect the government to violate the diseased people's civil liberties. Mark my words on that.

The debate that is taking place across America--how to respect the civil liberties of Ebola patients, or those that may be Ebola patients in 21 days--reminds me of the theme of the show TRUE BLOOD. No offense is meant to anyone suffering from EBOLA.. But the same theme somehow applies in my mind..

A few days ago there was hope that the 'girls' abducted in early 2014 in Nigeria would be freed. That did not happen. Today we learn that BOKO HARAM and extremists have captured 30 more boys and girls... Nigeria brags that they are Ebola free. But they are not free of horrors of modern brutality..

If you're looking for something frightening to begin your Halloween week, here's a listing of some HORROR MOVIES that you may have missed over the past decade.. Of everything IGN presents on their list of forgotten early 2000 horror, the tops I'd recommend is HOUSE OF THE DEVIL from 2009 CITADEL.

I have been following the search for the accused cop killer from Pennsylvania, Eric Frein, closely.. Mostly because the scenario is playing out less than 90 minutes from my own home base.. The latest from the state's law enforcement arsenal: They are going to use a 'blimp in a box' to search for Frein.  Not sure if they are purposely trying to remind us of Justin Timberlake singing "Dick in a Box" on Saturday Night Live a few years back, but it did it for me.. But this blimp in a box is no joke, it's a helium balloon equipped with cameras. In other words: A drone.. but 'blimp in a box' apparently has a much better ring to it.

Megan Fox
Megan Fox is still making the rounds for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, perhaps racking up more mileage than the Secretary of State.. Fox and her thumbs took the campaign for the movie to CHINA.. The way movies are marketed has changes so much over the past 14 years--the renewed attention on getting out the vote, in a sense, is amazing. The vote Hollywood wants is the international movie audience. So often the American audience does not matter. The real action is taking place in foreign box offices.. And that's where Hollywood is going to be mostly marketing to. Expect a lot more stars and starlets to grace China's fanciest hotels and theaters in coming years.

A WALKING DEAD episode last night turned weird.. IGN reviewed it saying the 'post apocalyptic cookout turns awkward.. 

The 'sexy Ebola containment suit' is on sale online
The 'sexy Ebola nurse' being called the most tasteless American Halloween costume by pundits across the pond..
 I agree.. but I disagree on the notion that this, or even the hazmat suit, is a best selling costume this year.. I don't think it is, and there is no evidence I have seen to suggest that implication is true..

The pre-Halloween week box office was filled with spirits and magic for a little horror flick .. $20 mil for OUIJA.. If you read my site over the weekend, you will remember I predicted $21 mil, more than the $18-19 mil range experts called for.. Call me the little prognosticator who could.

THE MOST POPULAR POSTS ON THE HORROR REPORT IN THE LAST WEEK

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…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

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 …

A dog eat dog afterlife

I read a somewhat moving article on HUFF PARANORMAL about a man who lost his pet dog.. In death, he sought to find the animal’s spirit.. His method was to use a smoke bomb and camera.. The author of the article is sure that he saw the face of his beloved deceased pet on the foggy image..
Before you laugh and mock, there’s two things to note.. First off, science can explain so much. But there’s a cutoff when science stops.. At least at this point. Logic may say that this image is just smoke within smoke.. For for the believer when faith, it’s something more. And science by no means can explain even a morsel of faith., And secondly– perhaps this would be more for pet owners– who didn’t lose an animal and feel the presence of that same beloved pet after death? And even more, I have known a handful of people that claimed per visitation from an afterlife.. In my own circumstance, I fondly remember seeing my dog Newt walk by my door. It was after he died. I had a witness– he saw it but years l…
