When one unfortunate event begins a series of tragic coincidences it has the tendency to evolve into a curse. The more coincidences that are involved, the more likely people are to believe otherworldly factors have come into play– the circumstances are just too unwieldy to be anything but the result of a curse!

James Byron Dean lived life in the fast lane, so it comes as no surprise that this “Rebel Without a Cause” spent his last moments of life behind the wheel of a car.
Coming to theaters (in the US) on February 1, 2013 is the film adaptation of the book “Warm Bodies” by Isaac Marion. Believe it or not, I’m generally not a fan of zombie movies or zombie stories as I hate the futility and the never-changing zombie plot of those films. This film, at least, seems to be different. It has a different plot AND… dry wit and humor that make me chortle with glee. (The lead is also that kid from “About a Boy”, which is one of my favourite comedy films.)
If you’re interested, there are two trailers and the first four minutes of the film posted on the film website… or… click on these bad-boys, below
First 4 Minutes:
The Innkeepers – Set in the venerable Yankee Pedlar Inn, which is about to shut its doors for good after over a century of service. Believed by many to be one of New England’s “most haunted hotels,” the last remaining employees, Claire and Luke are determined to uncover proof before it shuts down for good. As the Inn’s final days draw near, odd guests check in as the pair of minimum wage “ghost hunters” begin to experience strange and alarming events that may ultimately cause them to be mere footnotes in the hotel’s long unexplained history.
Back in November 2010, I wrote about the story of Patience Worth and her life as the “original” ghostwriter. Patience lived during the heyday of Spiritualism, as did the subject of a story I came across recently. Her name was Lurancy Vennon and hers is a story of spiritual possession.
