My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to the teacher and secluding him from everyone he was close to from her mother which he was dating and his daughter who finds out about them on her birthday. Showing how crazy the student really was is a good addition as the watcher was able to see how the student was breaking her hand and giving herself concussions and posting photos about herself and setting another student up so that she could get rid of anyone that she considered competition. With the ending also showing how she had done this with another teacher and would kill the teacher who she was obsessed with kill his daughter and her friend just so that she is the only person still in his life and so that he has nothing but her left. The very end showing how the teacher was starting another new job to get away from her and seeing her at the ending having found him shows that she is not done with him and that she is not going to let go of him easily.

On the other hand, the writing is not perfect and could have been done better, also it seemed rather unrealistic at times with how the teacher was not able to push the stalker off of himself and was not able to defend himself even though he seemed really strong where as she was skinny and didn't look like she would be hard to push away and get away from. Another thing that dd bother me was how at the ending the student who was stalking him was seen outside of his home and still following him even though she had stabbed his daughter and the evidence showing that she had killed someone else and seemed to have no punishment at all for it.

I do think My Teacher, My Obsssion is one of the better stalker movies in which I have personally seen and that it would be good for someone who likes films about stalkers and a thriller to see. I would also recommend this film to those who are wanting something that is not really gory at all and doesn't show nudity. I would see this film again.

My Rating: 4/5

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic Author: C.J.S. Thompson Published By: Senate Published Year: 1927 My Review:  As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more. This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published. I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what as

Jeepers Creepers 3 (film review)

Film : Jeepers Creepers 3 Year : 2017 Genre : Horror, Mystery, Thriller Starring : Stan Shaw, Gabrielle Haugh, Brandon Smith About : Sheriff Dan Tashtego and a team of creeper hunters enlist the help of officer Davis Tubbs to help stop the monster's eating spree. My Review:  Jeepers Creepers 3 is more of a transition film between the first and second film starting exactly where the first one ended and ending exactly as one of the boys go onto the school bus like in the second movie.  This film is more about Jeepers Creepers himself and showing how he is able to catch the people in which he is tracking down. As well as this you are able to see how a woman has a part of Jeepers Creepers that is able to look into his history and figure out the way of possibly destroying him. This did annoy me however as during this you see that two of the characters are able to see into his past but does not show the audience anything at all or really tell you anything about the past t
