Horns - Movie Review

Who's In It? 


What's It About? 

Ig Perrish wakes up one morning after being blackout drunk to find himself wanted for the murder of his girlfriend, he then proclaims that if he did it let the Devil curse him, as luck would have it, this leads him starting to sprout horns the very next day.

Any Good? 

I could put good money in any betting establishment that this film will tank totally at the cinema, but make millions on download or DVD (What year is it?!) sales. It's a cult classic in every right, it has the premise, the great soundtrack and the effects, but most of all, it's just the mess you've come to know as a cult film.

Certainly not one for the Ophidiophobic (people afraid of snakes, i.e. common sense)

I like this movie, for all its faults (such as a gratuitous childhood flashback that meant NOTHING AT ALL) it's cool as hell. The soundtrack suits, the dialogue is hilarious in parts, and it even gets heart-hurty at times due to the horns causing people to tell their true feelings. Some scenes are totally badass and genuinely give the feel that Ig is descending into a devil, but those are for you to enjoy.

This film is like watching a game of Cluedo, where you know that literally EVERYONE is the murderer from the start; then as the guilty flashbacks start to flow you get an idea of what happened, but still everyone did it! Then, when it ends, you just sit there and think "wait, I knew that..", it just keeps you guessing at all times.

Horns is a twisty film that will have you angry when Ig doesn't just jump on the first suspect because it's so obvious, but it happens with every character and it works pretty well. I'd say if you like things like Hellboy, Scott Pilgrim or Kevin Smith movies, this is for you; otherwise it just won't interest you at all. Even if you don't go to see this for Halloween, make sure to watch it and tell me what you think, I really liked it and dear Mammy couldn't get past the first 10 minutes.

Smashbox Photo Finish - 15 First Impressions!

So last month there was a pretty spiffy deal running with Smashbox in Dublin, in that you present yourself to the ladies on counter and, after a short consultation, you receive a free full size Photo Finish primer of your choosing. 

Safe to say, once I tweeted this news, all hell broke loose. The 50 samples from the Blanchardstown counter were gone within an hour! The 50 in Arnott's didn't fare much better. 

I sent out a tweet last week to ask for first impressions of the product, and should you be in the market for a primer, you're prolly gonna wanna read these:

Spooky Halloween Hair For Girls - A Simple How To

Who doesn’t love spending time looking at all the pretty things & genius ideas on Pinterest? I know I do. When I have the time that is. I love nothing more than looking at the photos & occasionally thinking to myself, I could give that a go. That’s where I got the idea of doing my daughters hair like spiders for Halloween. 

We shared the best places for Halloween breaks this morning and these would be ideal to pop into your bag to do your little one's hair for their kids clubs and Halloween shindigs. It’s so easy to do you won’t believe it.

Jeepers Creepers, We've Spooky Mid-Term Sleepers! The Best Halloween Fun Ireland Has To Offer

Double, Double, Toil & Trouble.......

I love Halloween especially since having little ones as I use them as an excuse to go overboard with the decorating & sweet buying/eating! While on our travels in the US we picked up lots of fantastic Halloween decorations in Wal-Mart for a few Dollars as they were so hard to get in Ireland a few years ago.

This year more than ever I’ve noticed more & more hotels & tourist boards taking advantage of the Halloween mid-term break, offering families great things to do & places to stay at great rates. I’ve compiled a list of 5 of the best; all are places we've been so I'll happily recommend. Some fun stops are guaranteed to scare you witless as they are adults only!!
