With the Davros diversion behind him, and Missy/The Master off cavorting with the Supreme Dalek back in time, we are somewhat back to status quo with “Doctor Who.” That is if we ignore the news of an upcoming new spin-off called “Class” about the kids at the Coal Hill School, we can go back to running around time and space with The Doctor and Clara. Meet me after the time and space jump when Biff Bam Pop’s 31 Days of Horror crosses over with “Doctor Who” and our heroes face ghosts “Under the Lake.”

A Ghost Hunter’s Review of The Woman In Black 2: Angel of Death

WIB-AOD-poster

I love ghosts. They’re not strangers to me. I’ve been seeing them since I was a child, and now, as an adult, I investigate them. So, when the opportunity came up to see a good ghost film, I grabbed my two fellow investigators and headed over to the neighborhood theater. I’d seen the 2012 film, The Woman in Black starring Daniel Radcliffe. The film was great, the story, scary and the ghost, nasty. Would the sequel be as good? Grab your ghost hunting kit and follow me.

31 Days of Horror 2013: The Saturday At The Movies Edition – The Conjuring

the-conjuring-poster

I’ve been seeing spirits since I was a kid. Lucky me! Until recently, I’ve only encountered the friendly type. But, there is a second type of spirit. These malicious entities are capable of hurting you. I’ve already posted about one spirit in particular, the angry ghost, who may have caused the death of a child. I’m still doing the research on this and will get back to you when I have the answers. The Conjuring, a supernatural horror film, is a story about a family under attack by a demon, and the paranormal team that helps them. How do you fight a demon? Find out after the jump.

Gilbert’s Helpful Ghost Hunting Tips

Ghost descending the staircase at Raynha

I’ve mentioned in my last ghost hunting article that I’m taking classes on how to do a proper investigation. I’m learning all the procedures and precautions in order to start my own group. In the previous post, I was part of an active investigation in which the little girl who haunts (I’m not sure if I like this word) a library, visited me in my dreams. She told me how she really died. I intend to return to the library and do research on the library and the girl. I’m hoping to find out the identity of the angry ghost. Right now, I’m learning how to interview people who have unwanted visitors in their homes. No not the pesky freeloading living relatives, but the other kind. What questions need to be asked? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Mat Langford’s Gaming World – Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer revealed

ghosts1

The Call of Duty: Ghosts multi-player was revealed today, and here are some of the details:

First and foremost, the game’s single player, multi-player, co-op and second screen all run at 60 FPS on all platforms, both current gen and next-gen.

Ghosts features 7 new game modes, including Cranked (similar to TD, when you get a kill, you become faster, reload faster, but you gain a ‘countown clock’ that kills you unless you kill someone else in a certain time limit) and Search and Rescue (when you die, you drop a tag, if an ally picks it up you re-spawn, but if an enemy picks it up, you die).

There are also 30+ new weapons and a new weapon class called “Marksman”, which bridges the gap between the Sniper class and the Assault class, giving you long range guns that can be used as scoped semi-automatic sniper rifles or as an iron-sight ranged weapon similar to the M1 in the original Call of Duty and COD 2.

There are also 20 new kill streaks, and an all new animation system that will change they way the game looks from a character movement perspective. New movements including contextual leaning, knee slides and Mantling will allow the player to move around maps like never before.

Saturday At The Movies: The Awakening

I don’t know about you, but I love the turn of the century British ghost story. Something about the big, gothic homes and the air of uncertainty. Our Marie Gilbert wrote about one of my favourites, The Others, not long ago. Released this past week is a kindred spirit to that film called The Awakening, featuring Rebecca Hall, one of the upcoming stars of Iron Man 3.

Check out the trailer and then read our review after the jump!

Marie Gilbert’s Top Five TV Shows of 2012

imagesCA8BVX69I don’t watch a lot of TV and if I’m not with my grandchildren, I’m either ghost hunting or writing paranormal stories. When I do watch, I like stories that deal with the supernatural, science fiction, or horror, so it was really hard to come up with just five favorites. “The Walking Dead” is my #1 favorite and my reviews of this brilliant show can be found here at Biff Bam Pop! I’m also a fan of “Doctor Who” and “Firefly,” but I will save my reviews of these two for another time.  So let’s begin with my Top Five after the jump.
