Freezing Out Fridging: Why This Misogynistic Trope Needs to Die

Today is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, it is disheartening that this still needs to be addressed in this day and age. Downright infuriating. Since today is about violence against women, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about a dated, misogynistic trope that has always rubbed me... Continue Reading →

Gone but Not Forgotten: How Fiction Helps Us Remember and Understand the Past

Today is Remembrance Day, a day we remember and give tribute to those we lost in the line of duty. It's a solemn day, to say the least. It is a day for reflection, compassion and, in a way, hope. Here in the UK,  The symbol for this day and remembrance is the poppy, as... Continue Reading →

Autism in Video Games

Since it is Autism Acceptance Month, I figured I can get this little rant out of my system. This has been on my mind for a while, like a nagging feeling that will not go away. What is with the lack of explicit Autistic characters in video games? Don't get me wrong, there are plenty... Continue Reading →

Nostagia Sells

Tomorrow Animaniacs is coming back thanks to Hulu.  If it wasn't for the fact I am broke, I would have signed up for the streaming platform in a heartbeat after the first trailer dropped. Animaniacs was one of my favourite shows when I was a little girl. Even the trailers joked about how reboots are rife in the entertainment... Continue Reading →

Unlucky for some

I may or may not have spent the past week binge-watching horror films. Mostly Friday the 13th films. It has been 37 years since the first Friday the 13th and this franchise continues to scare us. I will be the first to admit that the original films are a bit on the cheesy side, and while... Continue Reading →

A for Autism

Have Creepypastas expired?

A few days ago, I was surfing the web as usual when I stumbled on an ad for a new HBO documentary called Beware the Slenderman. The documentary is about the case of two young girls who stabbed their friend and left her to die to please Slenderman. Beware the Slenderman was aired on Monday but won't be... Continue Reading →

Witch project gets a passing grade?

October is finally here, and you know what that means. Halloween! The best time of the year. A time to lose sleep from marathoning horror movies, a time to celebrate the disturbing and a time to make your friends and family question your sanity. Although that last one might just be me. Plus that happens all... Continue Reading →
