My Review:
Having had this in my To Watch Pile for a while I thought it would be a perfect time to give this a watch for the first time. Being a fan of the first movie I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie and although this was different from what I would have expected I did think think that this was a good watch.

Showing at the beginning of the movie how she took down Bateman and never got caught showed how she became a killer and really helped to show the character right from the beginning. By also having her motivation to join the FBI so she could take down other serial killers was something else in which I thought was well done as it gave her killing purpose when she started killing her peers in order to get a teaching assistant job. Showing how she killed was in all different ways such as strangling, hanging, bashing heads in and more showed how she thought tactfully about how she would kill people and where she would put the bodies so that they would not be found. I did think that the ending was also a good twist with her not really being Rachel Newman and that she was using the alias in order to be at the university which later we see that she kills someone else to also steal theirs and get into the FBI which only the shrink she spoke to ended up finding out about. This did make me wonder who she really was which was kept a mystery even in the ending.

I did think however that by having the voice over throughout the film did distract me and was something that rather annoyed me about this movie. Not only this but I thought the acting and the script was not perfect for this movie and the motivation behind her killing was wrong. I do think that this movie would have been better if it wasn't a sequel to the American Psycho movie as I feel that it changed my opinion on it due to it not being something that the audience asked for.

Overall, this was a good killer movie and one that did surprise me with the ending of it and the twist I didn't see coming.  This is a film I would recommend to teenagers who are looking for a killer movie and a thriller. This is a film I would see again!

My Rating: 3/5

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
