OF THE MONTH
Hocus Pocus (1993)
Starring: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy
The start if September means only one thing, I am officially on countdown to Halloween. The chill is in the air, the leaves are falling, there is frost on the ground first thing in the morning and the spiders are out in force. I love to start my Halloween and autumn feeling with this feel-good children's Halloween classic to really get me in the spooky mood.
OF THE MONTH
The Loch (2017)
Starring Laura Fraser and Siobhan Finneran
I've been delving into British crime dramas as part of some research I'm doing and came across this little gem. It was one I never heard of but gave it a go. I have to wonder why it only got one season and why not many people know about it as it really is rather good. Centred around the small town by Loch Ness in Scotland, a small time police detective who has never seen a murder before becomes a part of a larger scale man hunt when bodies start dropping in her town. Bodies that show the marks of a serial killer. It's not easy to find but would definitely recommend searching it out and giving it a go.
