A Horror Film, Heat Anxiety & A Digital Detox – 5 Things I’ve Seen & Heard This Week

I’m finally back in the good old UK. Sadly, not escaping the heat, but reunited with my little Tobes, who has barely left my side.

I’ve been catching up on emails and TV so I’ve got lots of good stuff for you this week!

If you’re looking for a good horror film.
After a horrific journey home, and some bothersome jet lag, The husband and I managed to make time to watch a film and it was a horror. Yay!

There is a “grabber” going around, abducting young boys, two of which Finney knows and it isn’t long before Finney himself is taken and locked in a soundproof room with a bed and a disconnected black phone, that occasionally rings…..

It’s got a great cast and I enjoyed the storyline, which gives us something a little different.
