The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Can’t wait to watch this – and it’s on Netflix today! So, before tonight’s spooky goings-on on Really, I shall be indulging in this new series. Now, you might remember the ’90s version, or the movie, or even the cartoon but this one is gonna be so much darker. Forced to decide between light and dark magic on her 16th Birthday, Sabrina chooses both and that’s when the trouble starts. Will you be watching?

The Haunting of Hill House

How people are feeling about this one is a little split, but I watched it and enjoyed it. It’s not your typical ghost story and there are plenty of creepy moments. A family moves into the house with intention of renovating it and selling it on, but the house has a history and is filled with the ghosts of it’s past. One by one each member of the family’s encounters are revealed and how their lives have been affected. Slowly, they’re drawn back to the house.

Already aired in the States, this show will be coming to our screens soon – but there’s no word on when yet, I do have the where, Sky Atlantic. So keep your eyes peeled.

New KT Books Released

  • Stars
  • Moon

The second book, Moon, is the novella that began as a CryptTV/Inkshares entry, wanted to be a script and was entered in the ScreenCraft Horror Competition. Read the First Chapter here. Both books are now available for download on Amazon too.

This was a damn good read. The set up seems like it will be a little cliched ghost story at first, but then it turns into something else entirely… If you appreciate a quick read and a nice little twist, I highly recommend this introductory story to what is promising to be the start of an interesting new horror universe! I can’t recommend this enough. Buy it, enjoy it and bite your nails waiting for the next book in the series! – Derek C, NY
